Saying Goodbye
August 02,
2014

Starting at the crack of dawn this morning — about 4:45 a.m. — the 2014 Summer Program students began departing campus to make their way back home. Having forged close friendships over the last two weeks, the students had to fight back tears when saying goodbye to one another.

Before they left, the students presented a thank-you card to Admissions Director Jon Daly, whose tireless efforts make the Summer Program possible. Below are just a few of the students’ comments:

“You made this an unforgettable two weeks, and I’m still super stoked that we went 9-3 in the roll call race.”
— Tom G.

“I’d write a big, long speech thanking you for everything you did for us, but it would end up being a thesis!”
—Rebecca M.

“Thank you so much!!! These were the best two weeks of my life.”
— Ryan U.

“I’m more grateful than I can say. Thank you!”
—Tim G.

Thanks be to God for a great two weeks! It is sad to see our Summer Program students go. By God’s grace, many of them will return as members of the Thomas Aquinas College Class of 2019!
