USU Graduation

Graduation Day!!!! Finally after 8 finals weeks, 139 credits, millions of study hours, thousands of diet cokes, 3 apartments, one boyfriend, one fiance, one wedding, one husband, 38 A's, 7 B's, one dreadful C and 4 very long years I have graduated from Utah State University. I may have seen more of the inside of the library and spent more time with my study group than I saw of my house or spent time with my husband but it is now worth it. It seems like that first semester was so long ago but at the same time it feels surreal that I am a college graduate. I'll put my official degree in writing so that my mom can stop asking me what my degree is again... I graduated from Utah State with a Bachelor of Science in Animal, Dairy, Veterinary Science with an emphasis in Bio-veterinary Science. I also received a minor in Biology and a minor in Chemistry. I know it sounds very intense but in short it is Pre-Vet. USU and Logan have been a great experience and Travis and I had a blast living there and made some really great friends. Graduation was an exciting event with Travis, my parents, both grandparents, and in-laws in attendance. Travis opted out of walking in commencement so we made a deal that he must at least take a picture of both of us in our cap & gowns. Travis and I both could not have accomplished this without the support of our families. There are two people in this world that have wanted me to graduate college and go on to vet school more than me; my dad and then my grandpa. Both have supported me and encouraged me through everything. I am so grateful for my family and my husband for the support. I openly admit that I am a complete wreck during finals and Travis was there with diet cokes and charleston chews. I may only be at half-time in terms of my education but I am going to fully enjoy it. Here is to a party summer and serious family time. Thank you all who helped us get through the last four years!
