22 Things that Happened my Senior Year of College

These are some things that happened my senior year that were awesome. I tried my best to keep them in order, but I’m sure I messed up…

1. Took pictures on the Pentacrest late at night

This is just a snapshot of senior year, but I wanted to make a little something to look back on. I never thought that I’d fall in love with Iowa like I have, but I feel so lucky to have lived here these last four years. I’m almost a grad and post-grad life is starting to look up a little, so that’s exciting. Here’s to you, dear old Iowa U.
