Collages of College

You knew I'd use that pun at one point. I don't know why you're even surprised. Here is my last four years in pictures, and to think that even these don't totally capture the experience and the people I met! I can't believe the difference between the girl blowing kisses into the webcam in the first collage and the girl (or should I be cheesy and say "young woman" or "young lady"?) in the sparkly silver dress in the last collage. Washington College was a true experience all around, and I'm not sure this whole alumnae status is going hit me until I don't return in August.
Freshman Year
