Globe’s Point: Enjoy the rest of the semester

Well Pioneers, we’re here. This is our last Globe’s Point of the semester, and, like many of you, we’re excited and ready to be wrapping things up. At the same time, however, we’d like to remind everyone to take some time and enjoy the rest of the semester.

It’s been a long year. We know it’s been a long year because a majority of our Globe’s Points this semester have been about mental health, mindfulness and self-care. That being said, we’d like to take this last editorial of the year to celebrate everyone’s accomplishments and emphasize the importance of enjoying yourself these last two weeks, especially if you’re graduating.

A few weeks ago, we ran an editorial about how graduating from college is a major accomplishment, and we’d like to echo that sentiment here once again. If you’re graduating, that’a huge deal, and we’d like to offer a formal congratulations to everyone graduating (including some members of our staff)! Graduating from college during a pandemic is a huge accomplishment, so everyone graduating this year (and everyone who’s graduated the past two years) deserves major credit.

We’d also like to take a moment to encourage everyone who isn’t graduating to attend commencement on April 30 at PPG Paints Arena. The event is free, you do not need a ticket to attend, and the doors open at 11:30 a.m. Come out and support everyone graduating, especially those who don’t have anyone else coming out for them.

Lastly, we’d like to direct a message to our seniors: your time here is coming to an end. You should make your number one priority in these final days before commencement to enjoy everything Point Park and the people around you have to offer. To echo the eternal words of Ferris Bueller: “Life moves pretty fast, if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you just might miss it.”
