There is a mixture of feelings that comes with being a senior. Usually bittersweet, as students have the excitement of knowing that you are about to be finished with your undergrad, but also the stress knowing that your life is soon about to begin.

Virginia Wesleyan has many alumni that have gone through the mixed emotions of what it feels to be a senior. Reid Hoffler, a 2014 Political Science graduate of Virginia Wesleyan College has too felt the same emotions and stresses that come with being a senior. Hoffler was a pitcher for Virginia Wesleyan’s Men Baseball team for his four years attending VWC. He is now a sales representative for Hoffman Beverage.

Q:What is some advice you would give seniors that are about to enter the real world soon?

A: My advice to these seniors who are about to enter the real world and search for jobs and begin their actual life is that it is all about who you know. Do not be scared to try new things, because a lot of new experiences will be thrown to you. Make sure you keep everything in perspective and do not stress a lot and always be genuine.
