10 Signs You're Graduating From The College Of Education

Graduation is this weekend, and we are so excited for all of our #EduGatorGrads. Here are some signs that you're graduating from the College of Education because let's be honest, you're going to miss good ole' Norman Hall.

1. You're feeling ~nostalgic~. You almost feel like a freshman again the way you're treasuring Norman's endearing quirks.

You're thinking about your last walks through the courtyard and how much you're going to miss studying in the library, attending class and just being a student.

2. You've got mad love for everyone in your cohort. You're going to miss them, but you know you'll stay in touch.

(maybe you've been sending a lot of heart eyes in your group chats)

3. Your professors have become your friends, and you cherish all the moments you've spent with them.

Be sure to take pictures with your favorite professors before you graduate! (or even at graduation like this one)

4. You finally decided how you're going to decorate your grad cap and can't wait for everyone to see it.

If you share pics of you grad cap on social media be sure to tag UF_COE or hashtag #EduGatorGrad.

5. You're wondering how it's going to feel looking back at pictures 20 years from now.

Your pictures probably aren't in black and white, but it will feel like it.

8. You might have had some senioritis this year but then remembered that you had to stay focused (even when some of your friends in other majors didn't) because you're an educator and #SchoolisLife.

Thinking about the kids you'll teach keeps you motivated!

You know all your friends and family will be cheering you on.
