This is always an exciting time around East Lansing. I share an office downtown on Grand River with my husband, Jeff, and we have a huge window on the second floor of the building overlooking campus. I love the vibe around here as students start to come out into the warmer weather and enjoy the final weeks before summer break begins. I’m always itching to change up my location, so I walk down to Espresso Royale or Grand River Coffee, and I secretly smile about the fact that I no longer have to study for final exams.
I’m always grateful when students celebrate their years of hard work at Michigan State with professional photos around campus with me. Ruth is one of those students. Everyone take senior photos to celebrate the end of high school, but so many students get caught up in the final days of college and forget to celebrate it the same way. Despite a little sprinkling of rain, we had a great mini tour of north campus—from Sparty to the MSU Botanical Gardens to Morrill Hall. Congratulations, Ruth, and best wishes after graduation!
