Kait and the Badger

One student's search for the voice of UW-Madison

Adieu, @UWMadison; It’s been good.

10366008_10154299298420438_8497840869324693448_nWell, it’s that time: It’s time for my last post. I’m not sure I’m ready to feel nostalgic. Honestly, these past four years have flown by, and even though it’s been a year and a half, I feel like I just started this blog. I’m also not sure I really grasp the fact that I’ve graduated. I’ve been in school for so very long, it’s hard to believe it’s finally over. There were days when I didn’t think it would happen. I kept waiting for something to go wrong – some paperwork mishap or some botched class (although I still have a three-credit independent study this summer, so knock on wood).

It’s been tough to find a place at UW-Madison, and this blog really became my home. It gave me the tools to explore campus and to reach out to other students. There is no end to the amazing work going on here at UW, and I was so privileged to be able to explore some of the projects and meet some of the people behind all the innovation here. I hope I was able to successfully share some of the incredible stories I stumbled into.

I won’t rant for too long, I just wanted to say thank you. Thanks for reading and taking a look at all these silly snapshots. Thanks for taking the time to share my point of view, and I hope that it helped you understand our campus just a little bit better. I feel so lucky to have been able to grow as a journalist and slowly (and clumsily!) improve as a videographer and photographer through this blog. As a final farewell, here are a few snapshots from Bascom and the Terrace, because – let’s be honest – although I won’t miss climbing the hill twice a day, I will definitely miss hanging out in those two iconic spots.

Now, to find a job…

    Thanks for taking us on your journey Kate. I grew up in Madison in the 50’s & 60’s and left in the early 80’s. I have loved seeing both the old and new Madison through your eyes. Wishing you all the best in whatever new path you choose to follow. I have no doubt you will make a difference wherever it leads.
