My Greatest Supporters

I want to thank my mom for always supporting me through every up and down these four years. Thank you so much to Deanna and Cathy for your support and encouragement in my many major changes and letting me cry in your offices when times got tough. I am so grateful for everything and will miss the SMC community deeply.

Favorite Saint Mary's Memory

At the Paint the SMC during Weekend of Welcome my first year, this guy ran up to me with a handful of paint and left his hand print on my brand new white St. Mary's baseball cap. I was so annoyed and never knew who the person was. Fast forward to senior year and that guy is now my best friend. Shoutout Geoffrey Ulysses Geissinger!
