Memories and stories will last a lifetime

In a little less than one month the fall 2013 graduating class of LCU will take part in commencement exercises.

Four weeks to go until graduation. It is sort of a bittersweet feeling. I have spent the last three and a half years as a student at Lubbock Christian University. LCU was my first pick and the only college I applied to.

Some of my best memories were made here through art studio classes I've had, singing along with Dr. (David) Peebles in chapel, various shenanigans with Zeta Gamma (women's social club), and many more. I have made friendships here that will last a lifetime and I am very grateful for that.

"Senioritis" is a very real disease. It makes you very anxious to speed through the rest of the semester and walk across that stage. It makes it very difficult to focus on what still needs to be done. Even though I have caught the bug, I am doing my best to push through these last few weeks. When leaving LCU I will be taking with me an art education degree and experience in an actual classroom through my student teaching. I will take a deeper knowledge of my religion that others may not have the privilege of receiving at another school. I will take my memories and stories to share wherever I go.

I am very blessed for the time well spent at Lubbock Christian University.

Editor's Note: Kelsey Ried will graduate during commencement ceremonies on Saturday, December 14th at 10:00 am. She will walk the stage with fellow graduates in the Rip Griffin Center on the LCU campus.
