SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
Marina Keegan was a 22-year-old student at Yale who suddenly died in a car accident on May 26. She had written a piece about her thoughts on graduating and her experience throughout college.
Keegan's words encompassed all of the things that everyone has tried to say during speeches and tried to write in cards and slur to one another during those fleeting moments at the end of the semester.
"We don't have a word for the opposite of loneliness, but if we did, I could say that's what I want in life. What I'm grateful and thankful to have found at Yale, and what I'm scared of losing when we wake up tomorrow and leave this place...
But let's get one thing straight: The best years of our lives are not behind us...
What we have to remember is that we can still do anything. We can change our minds. We can start over. Get a post-bac or try writing for the first time. The notion that it's too late to do anything is comical. It's hilarious. We're graduating college. We are so young."
As a recent grad myself, Keegan's story has hit home in many ways. Make sure to read her complete thoughts here. It will definitely leave you with chills.
