That's All Folks!

Hello everyone!

This past week was an absolute whirlwind, and now that it's over I'm just starting to process everything that happened—and perhaps most importantly, the fact that I am officially done with school! With that being said this is my last blog post—so sad!

Our Portfolio Show in the Rapson Courtyard was a massive success!
The 3.5 years I spent here at the University of Minnesota have been the most transformative, challenging, and fun years of my life. It was such an amazing experience to see everything that we have worked so hard on for the last 4 months (and 3.5 years or more) come together during our Portfolio and Senior Thesis Exhibition shows this week.

Overall, I was so incredibly impressed and proud of all of my fellow seniors. During and after the shows we had some time to reminisce about our time here and upon thinking back to our very first days in the program we couldn't believe just how far we all had come. Even more so, it was really exciting to realize that over these last 3.5 years, we really have all become like a family. We have all been with each other each step of the way; through all of the blood, sweat, tears, late nights, and hard work.
Our Thesis Exhibitions are on display in
the Larson Gallery in St. Paul through Friday 12/18.

As for what's next, most of us (myself included) are unsure at this point, but I just know that with all of the talent of our class, we will all go on to do some truly amazing things.  To check out all of our work, make sure to visit layers.design.umn.edu. Specifically, my finished portfolio can be found at leahpalmquist.com and the online version of my thesis exhibition can be found at mnloveletterproject.weebly.com.

Well, this is goodbye! Good luck and Happy Holidays!

Sincerely,

Leah
