A Letter to all JMU Seniors– Alicia Pettis

A Letter to all JMU Seniors,

I’m just going to go ahead and address the purple elephant on this campus….Graduation.

As the days start counting down, G-day is becoming more than a distant event, but rather a day that is right around the corner. Eek! So how do we take it all in without freaking out? I mean, there are literally less than 50 days left…

But, you have to #MakeItCount.

Wake up every day with the purpose of living the final stretch of your JMU journey as a time for celebration. Do the things you’ve always wanted to do. There is no time like the present to check off those bucket list items.

But, at the same time, remember that what made your Madison Experience so great was the people in this community – so share your celebration with everyone. Especially the underclassmen who can’t imagine JMU without you. Take the chance to pass on knowledge and tips on how to make their time at JMU as growth oriented and special as possible.

So spend time with the people who made Madison great by celebrating. Simple, easy, doable. And, Senior Class Council is there to support you.

To help you with accomplishing the must-do’s of your final weeks at JMU, the senior class council has been gearing up all year to put on events to help you finish off your time at JMU with spirit. Beyond making memories through your official Senior bucket list, make sure that you complete your own personal Senior to-do list. Doing so will make the final wave of excitement even greater. You will feel satisfied with your four (or five!…or six?) years on May 9th for whatever comes your way after completing these items and making the lasting memories that will accompany them.


Check out our very own Senior To-Do list to give you an idea of must-do items.


SENIORAnd, remember, that we are here to make your days the best they can possibly be, with restrictions of course (so no…we can’t open the tunnels for you). As your official senior class council, let us know what we can do to serve you.

#LovePurple #LiveGold

Stay golden Class of 2014,

Senior Class Council
