Relaxing is something we often forget to do, especially during hectic times such as two months before graduation. Reflecting on your college journey is an important thing to do before heading out the door. Everyone’s journey is different, but we all tend to grow as people in many ways throughout our four years of college, and the person you were in the beginning of college is proud of the person you are now at the end of college.

The experience makes us learn a lot about ourselves and helps us adapt into people suitable for the outside world of job hunting and proper adult life. Iona is a perfect example of the ideal college experience and environment, filled with helpful professors and insightful opportunities with networking incorporated all throughout.
