Written by Javin Fish on May 12, 2022
The 2021-2022 school year was just starting not too long ago and within a blink of an eye this Saturday the 14 is graduation day. This graduating class will promote about 300 students. It is crazy to know there are only about 800 in the school! Interviews from three students will help understand how it feels to be a college graduate.
The first person that was interviewed was Conally Webb, a senior exercise science major from Rockwall, Texas. She was first asked how life at K Dub is. She replied, ”Life here at K Dub had its ups and down for sure, but I met some of my best friends who will be with me for the rest of my life. All the teachers are great and push me to the best of my ability. I am so grateful to have been here for 3 years and will miss it for sure and it will always have a place in my heart.” Next Conally was asked what her plans are after graduation. She said, ”After graduation I honestly have no idea I’m waiting to hear back from a PTA school in Waco. If that works out then I will attend there in the fall and be there for 2 years. If that does not workout I will be a PT tech somewhere in Texas or maybe Kansas, not for sure yet.” Afterwards, she responded to how it feels to be graduating college. “It’s honestly kind of crazy how fast it came up and I’m gonna miss it for sure. It’s a big accomplishment and it feels really good to be starting my life soon and scary at the same time.
The second interview recorded was from Sven Otterness, a senior exercise science major. While being from Goodhue, Minnesota, he will play his senior season in football in the fall. He was asked how it feels to be graduating college. “It feels amazing, it feels like this big weight has been lifted off my shoulder. I never thought I would have graduated from a private university, but with a lot of sacrifice and hard work I was able to accomplish my goal of getting my undergraduate degree.” He was then asked what are your plans after graduating? “After graduating I will be doing my internship at SHARP performance here in Salina for the summer and then I plan to come back to Kansas Wesleyan in the fall to start the MBA program as well as using my eligibility for football.” After Sven was asked how was life here at Kansas Wesleyan University? “Living here in Salina has been a pretty cool experience. For how small the town is there are a lot of fun things to do and the people here are really nice and helpful. The school has a lot of nice things and it is nice how this school attracts a lot of different students from different parts of the country, which makes it more diverse. I really like how the school is connected with the community and although sometimes I wish the school was bigger it is nice the campus is small and easy to get to places. Overall Kansas Wesleyan has had a great impact on me and has prepared for where my future takes me.”
Kobe Spence, a System Administration & Network Management major. He played football here at K Dub and is from Brandon, Florida. In the interview, he was asked how it feels to be graduating college and what are his plans after. He replied,” It feels great to be finally graduating college and completing my four year degree. This degree means a lot to me and I plan to take full advantage of it. My plans after graduation is to join the military and become an officer. I will use this to build my resume and create a better career for me while using my degree.” Last, he was asked how life here at K Dub is. His response was,” Life here at K Dub was challenging but fun at times. I didn’t know what I was expecting when coming in as a freshman, but I will say I am happy to leave this place.”
