Graduation diary - Erica Campanelli
May 21, 2011
Hey Longhorn fans!
This weekend marks such an important time in so many people's lives and thankfully I am one of those people. Today, I will receive my degree from the University of Texas. It really seems like just yesterday that I was starting in my first soccer match for the Longhorns and now four years have gone by and I couldn't be happier with the experience that I had at UT.
It feels amazing to be getting a degree from Texas. It's such an honor. You know, the whole time you are getting recruited and picking a college you couldn't dream of a better college than this. And to get through it and graduate is really an amazing feeling.
I am eternally grateful to Randa [Ryan] and her staff, Lara [Conrady], Tina [Kien] and everyone is so helpful in that office. They really make the experience that much better and help you get prepared for when you do graduate and leave college.
Really everyone involved in the athletic department has made this four of the best years of my life. I wouldn't trade it for anything and will truly bleed burnt orange for the rest of my life.
Thanks to everyone for all your support throughout my time at Texas and to my teammates and coach Petrucelli for everything they've done for me.
