Sophie Keefe, News Editor
Somehow, two semesters have come and gone in a whirlwind of events, games, tests, papers, pad thai outings, class discussions, blood, sweat and tears, and we have made it to the final issue of the year. I’m not sure how April rolled around so quickly, as it feels like we were planning our September issues only a few weeks ago. But an entire academic school year has taken place, and I can say with the greatest sincerity that working as News Editor alongside the rest of the goofy, intelligent Echo Team was truly an honor and a gift.
One week short of graduation, I feel the only regret I have concerning my time at Augsburg is that I spent only one of my four years working on “The Echo.” I’ll miss it a whole lot. I’ll miss Augsburg a whole lot. As graduation loomed ever closer, I realized it was possible to miss something before you’ve even said goodbye. I found myself getting nostalgic waiting in line for my morning coffee at Einstein’s or congregating with friends in the quad between classes or stopping into a professor’s office to have a quick chat.
I’ve done all of those things close to a million times during my time here, but I still feel it is not enough. Alas, the time has come to bid adieu to the school I’ve grown to love to take a stab at the real world. So goodbye to all of you, goodbye to my professors, goodbye to the campus that I’ll always hold dear. It’s been a hell of a good trip.
