Students who have worked with me before may have heard me say a time or two “people remember beginnings and endings.” What I mean is how we reflect back on an experience often is colored by the way the experience started, and what we felt about the ending. As we are closing down campus for the summer there are many endings in the air.
This whole experience, as I’m describing it probably sounds cheesy and cliché, but I simply have no words to describe what I saw.
