Asma Modi: Goodbye Trinity

I can’t believe that graduation is just a few weeks away. Although the thought of going out into the real world is exciting, I still want more time at this school. This column is dedicated to all of the great people at Trinity.

To the best friends that anyone could ever ask for, you all have made these last four years unforgettable.

Rahaman Navaz Gangji, I want you to remember that even though you’re Canadian, I still love you. That’s all I have to say to you because just the thought of not being in the same city as you makes me want to crawl under my blanket and cry my eyes out.

Danielle Haub, if roommate soul mates exist, then you are mine. The two years that we lived together were fantastic. Sorry for ditching you to be a Resident Mentor.  Don’t forget, I called dibs on you as my nursing home roommate.

Caleb Yen, you’re the weirdest friend I have. I expect your pointless texts to continue filling my messages inbox long after graduation.

Aaron Retersdorf, I’m going to miss the late night adventures that would result in us ending up in the sketchy parts of San Antonio. When you become rich, please don’t forget that I would love to have a library.

Catarina Guevara, when you become a famous artist, please invite me to all of your fancy art exhibitions. Why are you so good at everything? Rachel Berude, I just want to thank you for taking me to my first and last rodeo. As much as I loved seeing Eli Young Band, I don’t think I will ever get over the animal cruelty (or you laughing the entire time).

Alison Whitten, I wish I had your work ethic. I have no doubt in my mind that you’re going to be very successful in whatever you do.

To the professors at Trinity, the education that I received at this school has been priceless because of you all. Trinity students are lucky to have such intelligent and caring professors. To those professors that put up with me outside of the classroom, I really appreciate it. Please stay in touch! Add me on Facebook if you have one!

To Residential Life and the Academic Honor Council, it has been incredibly rewarding being a part of two great organizations. I’ve met so many amazing people in both organizations. To my residents, even though y’all keep me up almost every night, give me sass when I don’t deserve it and don’t understand the concept of personal space, I will miss all of you. To my residents from last year, none of the complaints above apply to you. To the Residential Life professional staff, I want you all to know that I appreciate all of your hard work. Brandon Spencer and Andrew Hoing, I couldn’t have asked for better Res Life Coordinators.

Trinity University, thank you for the countless memories.

Asma Modi is graduating with a degree in international studies and Spanish with a history minor. She was involved with Residential Life and Honor Council during her time at Trinity.
