It’s been 4, 5, 6 years, or maybe even more – but you made it! You’re graduating and forging ahead, with all the excitement, trepidation, and mystery that is associated with that. So three cheers for you and for the community that supported you and helped you get here. Savour the moments on May 23rd as you celebrate this achievement, it is worth celebrating!
As you reflect on this milestone, if you have something that you would like to share with students still in IR or with those just applying now, I’d love to hear about it. Over the next months a few pieces will be featured on a new section of the website highlighting IR stories and reflections that are aimed at creating more community and knowledge-sharing in IR. Send an email to irmajor.program[at]ubc.ca to communicate your interest and what you’d like to write about, and we will go from there.
Happy graduation to you, 106 IR Majors!
[And special shoutout to the 64 grads with IR Minors, 3 Honours History with IR grads, and 2 Honours Political Science with IR grads – hope your graduation days are also great!]
