The Monday Memo: 4/2/2012


April 2, 2012                                                                                               DPT Class of 2014


Thank you, Rachel!


Wow! Can you believe we have a mere twenty-six days until our first year of physical therapy school is in the books? It honestly does not feel right to say there is an entirely new class enthusiastically awaiting their start at the doorstep of Forbes Tower. As a group, we have grown so much since orientation weekend in June. Sure, plenty of events have brought us closer together and helped shape our class personality such as Wei-Neng’s cadaver lab jokes, Sandcastle Water Park fieldtrips, ‘testosterone alley’ and bromance, Professor Timko’s singing, our ugly sweaters and so much more. We really should be keeping track!


With all the amazing things we have done and experienced this year, you would think it is difficult to choose a singular moment that represents what it means to be in the DPT Class of 2014. That was true up until this past Saturday. No one was fully prepared for what had been arranged, though it’s always difficult to anticipate perfection. Together, with our classmates and closest friends, we shared a truly remarkable evening aboard the Gateway Clipper Fleet. Enjoying dinner and dancing with laughter and smiles is how a family spends the night together. The lasting feelings of Saturday far outweigh anything we could write here. For all of those wonderful memories, there is only one person to recognize. Thank you, Rachel; you are incredible!
