One of my favorite memories at UVA is a group applause on the last day of a class at the end of a meaningful semester. I have appreciated the broad exposure of coursework I have received with a double major in Media Studies and Spanish. One factor that has united all of my academic experiences is showing appreciation for professors and classmates on the last day by applauding and showing gratitude during the last class. This ritual was not the same on Zoom. Therefore, I would like this opportunity to thank all of my peers, professors, friends and mentors for making my four years at UVA so special.
