As most of you know, yesterday was commencement for the Class of 2017!! Sadly, that includes me (Jess), so with this video of all of the seniors singing Bright College Years at the JE commencement ceremony, I bid you all adieu and pass the JE Facebook on to my successor. Once again, congratulations to the JE Class of 2017!!!
Hope finals have gotten off to a good start for everyone. Here's round 2 of JE's study breaks: the liquid nitrogen (LN2) study break! Stop by the great hall tonight at 9 to grab some - it's always delicious!
Hey JE Seniors!
Because we're not already depressed enough that it's the end of the year, it's time for the Senior Dinner! Tomorrow in the Great Hall, there will be cocktails, fancy food, prizes, speeches, and the senior video, courtesy of yours truly. Formal attire requested. See you all there!
