Graduate students are becoming younger and more frequent on campus this semester.

One of my favorite songs is “Closing Time” by Semisonic. Besides it bringing back memories of singing at the top of my lungs at Jacks, it also has a verse that strikes me as meaningful: “Every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end.” . . .

I?am excited to move on to the next chapter but nervous about what awaits me. Life after college leaves so many more uncertainties. . . .
Goodbye always seemed like a harsh word to me, and I prefer the Lennon/McCartney phrase, “You say goodbye, and I say hello.” Whether it is hello fortune-500 company, or the more realistic, hello job listings in the morning paper, I would say goodbye is putting a period at the end of a sentence that should have, as Zach Braff explains in Garden State, “an ellipsis.” . . .
