Despite the overall post-Commencement feel that has fallen upon Fletcher this week, I’ve been fortunate to connect with a few students as they spent their last minutes here before taking off for new adventures. Of those, several are days away from a flight to a distant locale. Others won’t start said adventures until later in the summer, giving them a nice hiatus — free of both coursework and career searching. And some will be pursuing adventures in the Boston area, meaning we don’t need to say farewell yet.
Nonetheless, the graduation tents have been dismantled one-by-one, and the first of the summer construction teams have moved in. Fletcher will undergo some relatively minor repairs and renovation, but even minor repairs mean that the Office of Career Services is currently working out of Blakeley Hall.
Into the mix came this sweet photo of Dean Stavridis, Symeon Tegos, and Erietta (tiniest graduate) Tegos. Symeon tells me that Erietta is only two and a half months old. (Aww! So sweet!) Her dad was in the one-year MA program, surely making this a year to remember for their family. In fact, in an email to Dean Stavridis that circled around to me, Symeon wrote:
This was an incredible year. The birth of my daughter changed me in ways I considered impossible only weeks ago, while the exposure to Fletcher had an unexpected profound effect on me. I have to express my gratitude for this amazing experience. Soon I will be heading back home where I will do my best to give back what I so generously received. I will never forget Fletcher and your example.
