One last time to pop the bubble


Katie Foster


Four years ago, being this close to receiving my diploma seemed so far off and unfathomable.
Never would I have imagined these years would mean so much to me.

I always call this college community I have come to love my ‘bubble’. I have enjoyed every single person who has entered my sacred space and has been a part of this journey.

The friends I made and created the most beautiful memories with. The professors who pushed me farther than I thought possible. The family who has supported me every step of the way.

Although it is time to ‘pop’ my precious bubble and say hello to a new beginning, I cannot be more grateful for my time at Ashland University.

As I look back at these years filled with determination and perseverance, but also so much joy and merriment, all that is left to say is thank you.

Thank you for helping me see my potential and encouraging me to reach new heights.

Thank you for showing me that I have a voice and it should never go unnoticed.

Thank you for the relationships I have built that are proving so hard to leave.

Thank you for the moments I will cherish forever. Thank you for being a part of my bubble.

Such a bittersweet goodbye, but it is time for this eagle to soar on her own.

Adieu Ashland University, I sure will miss you.
