As of today, Danielle and I have less than 2 weeks remaining in our Fellowship. This experience has been both challenging and rewarding but most of all, it has been extremely quick! In the midst of Elon’s bubble of constant growth and change, we have most certainly adopted the tireless work ethic of our colleagues and peers. The statics of our mid-year recap have more than doubled and we’re ending this year with a wealth of knowledge and career services experience.
Going forward, Danielle will stay on board with Elon for the summer as she coordinates the Bridges and Elon in New York programs. Between recruiting, assisting students with internship searches, planning activities, and hosting informational sessions she’s been quite busy (to say the least). Gracefully, she’s spent the last couple of months transitioning into her new role while still fulfilling the expectations of the Fellowship.
Next weekend, I’ll begin an 18 hour road trip to Texas. On June 9th, I will begin working as Career Counselor II for the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Houston. This position will allow me to work with a population of students very similar to those at Elon, so I’m excited to take with me the University’s appreciation of and commitment to a Liberal Arts education.
Words cannot begin to express our gratitude for this Fellowship and the opportunity to learn and grow in an engaging, innovative, and welcoming environment. We are forever indebted to Elon University. Passing on the torch won’t be easy, but we have faith that the legacy of the Fellowship will continue. The 2014-2015 Career Advising Fellows have been selected and will be introduced on the blog next week!
