Tyler Brownfield, a recent management graduate is our guest blogger for today. Below he shares his thoughts on what it means to be a senior here at SLU.
Word for Seniors:
Although it is the start of another year for SLU seniors, it’s also the final leg of their tenure.
What I find difficult about being a senior is that it always feels like you are concurrently focusing on the future, present, and the past. In the future, you’re worrying about securing a job, finding a place to live, going to graduate school, or even planning for a victory lap. In the present, your mind is on academics, social life, and organization responsibilities. Finally, in the past, you’re thinking about your previous SLU experience up to the present. The unfortunate thing is that we often are so caught up in the future and present that we rarely take time to finish or reflect on the past. Using a book analogy, in a way we’re writing the next chapter, before the previous one was even finished.
What I found to be most difficult about being a senior was that in the process of focusing on the present and future one often forgets to reflect on the past.
