I found this article linked via College Prep yesterday and felt the need to also share.
Marina Keegan wrote her farewell piece for the Yale Daily News prior to her graduation. She discusses the comfort that the Yale campus held, her awareness of the campus’ beauty and grace, and the feeling of never being alone while on campus. She describes the college situation for anyone who attends a liberal arts college or university where you live on campus, and even though my college graduation was two years ago, her message is still striking to my own life at this point.
Sadly, Keegan was killed in a car accident this past Saturday. Her prose is what remains from her life, but I know the words she wrote will remain in your life long after you’ve read them.
