|Class of 2012|
DO celebrate this outstanding achievement! Some of us are due to graduate in about a week, and some of us have successfully completed yet another great semester here at Chico State; what’s not to celebrate, right? However, DON’T celebrate in a manner that can be seen as inappropriate or looked down upon. This time of year should be celebrated with family and friends in a safe environment with respect to the code of conduct that our school is implementing during graduation ceremonies. Lets all make the best efforts to create the best memories we WONT forget with the friends we can’t forget!
During this time of year, we should also be mindful of the reputation that we are placing on our school. Liberal Studies majors make up a larger population of the campus; therefore we act as the face of our campus. With such an important role, it is our job to stay responsible not only during this time, but also year-round. Participating in organized bar crawls that reflect our program can have a negative impact on both the major and yourself as a student and as an educator. Partaking in such activities can jeopardize both your current and future job, so lets all keep in mind that TODAY DECIDES TOMORROW.
Congratulations to the entire graduating class! For the rest of ya’ll, we’ll be in their shoes in no time! Until then, make the best of your college career.
