Graduation: Where Do We Go From Here?

By: Savannah Phillips

Graduation. While it’s a word that has celebratory roots, it takes on a new, quite terrifying meaning for many college seniors. “College will be the best four years of your life,” everyone tells you. But no one tells you about the all-consuming existential crisis that creeps in as you watch your graduation date get closer and closer.

For the class of 2020, graduation really takes on a new meaning. As someone who had my graduation ceremony taken from me due to the COVD-19 pandemic, I can attest that my feelings surrounding graduation have become even more unpleasant. While I was already feeling uneasy about what my post-graduation life would look like, I also don’t get the ceremony to celebrate all my accomplishments before I enter into the real world.

Don’t get me wrong, graduation can be exciting too. It’s physical evidence that all the hours you spent in the library have finally paid off. It represents new beginnings in new places. And it means that you’re (hopefully) about to stop living off of ramen and start making real money.

 The scary part of graduation is the unknown. Where will I live? What if I don’t get a job? How will I support myself? Will my friends and I still be close? Where the hell do I go from here?

 Your college town becomes your home. And homes are familiar. They’re comfortable. They’re safe. So when you feel like your safety net is being pulled from under you, it’s hard to not get overwhelmed.

 Although the class of 2020 might not get to have a traditional graduation, that does not invalidate all of our hard work and accomplishments over the past four years. It’s imperative to view graduation as a state of change. While states of change are uncomfortable, confusing and often painful, they are necessary if you want to grow. And growth cannot occur without growing pains.

 Congratulations to the class of 2020!
