This week was filled with fun and exciting activities. On Wednesday, the Dicke College of Business Administration held a senior luncheon with Dean Fenton for all students graduating in May. The luncheon was at one of the conference rooms in The Inn at Ohio Northern University. The food included some of my favorites: chicken alfredo, lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs, and breadsticks filled with cheese. Of course, I had a little bit of each main course. After the students ate, Dean Fenton spoke a few nice words with us and congratulated us on graduating. The Dean invited two past alumni to give us graduates some advice about job hunting and giving back to the university. The luncheon was a good time with some delicious food and great information.
Wednesday night the Senior Send-Off was held at the Lima Civic Center. My friends and I were really excited to attend this event. We had a little celebration before the vans were to pick us up from McIntosh Center at 5:15 p.m. We planned on getting on that first round of buses and vans, and we actually sprinted to Mac from our house to ensure we got on those vehicles. My friends and I got there at 5:12 p.m. sharp; and the big bus and vans were already gone. So what do we decide to do with our spare time until the next round comes back in 45 minutes? Go have a beer (or three) at the Inn bar.
I was having a blast at the Inn, but the buses and vans came back to Mac to take us to Lima. I made a new friend on the ride and sang my heart out for everyone in the van. Once we arrived at the Civic Center, I could not believe my eyes of how many pizza boxes and wings were in front of me. I loaded up my plate with four slices of peperoni and cheese pizza and about six mild wings. Once I finished eating, I played the various casino games and won nothing. That’s just my luck. The raffle prizes were announced last and again, I won nothing. But, I had a really awesome time with my fellow graduating seniors and P5’s and I’m glad I got to experience the Senior Send-Off.
In conclusion, I find that being a senior is great fun and I’m really going to miss all the good times I have been experiencing as of recently.
