Alice Lasseter – WHS Class of 2017 - Reflections of Graduating in Lockdown
On the 25 May 2020 I completed my Politics and International Relations degree at the University of Bath.
Moving back home at the beginning of lockdown and having to create a working environment in my bedroom, away from the library (which had definitely become my best friend) made it hard to focus at first - especially adding into the mix the beautiful weather! But I was able to knuckle down with my assignments and hand in a dissertation that I am extremely proud of.
However, submitting my final assignment online meant that with a click of a button my uni experience was over and the celebrations that followed were not as I expected them to be.
I was able to celebrate with my family, but with my university friends scattered across the country, and no Summer Ball or Graduation Ceremony on the cards it made the ending very bittersweet.
Many congratulation to Alice from everyone at Wycombe High School
