Notes for Meghan


Congratulations, you made it through. Thanks for being part of the best comparative government crew anyone could have asked for. Go hug your adorable puppy!

Meg! You are such a ray of sunshine on this earth. Congratulations on this accomplishment; I know there will be so many more! Can’t wait to be front row, cheering you on for all of your future endeavors! Love you long time!

Meg- how blessed were we that we began our college career as next-door neighbors. Thank you for sticking with me through bangs and brown hair, yikes! I am so grateful for all the adventures, cheers to you and your incredibly bright future!

Meg, I am so thankful to have had you as a Helmsman my freshman year and also a friend. You have such an amazing heart and I can’t wait to see your accomplishments in the future. I will always cherish our memories and will need to come to see you in California sometime!


I honestly don’t have words express how much you mean to me and how proud I am of you. I’m so grateful that I’ve gotten to do life alongside you for the last four and a half years. We build each other up on our bad days, and keep each other in check on our good ones.

Thank you for being such a loyal and loving friend. I’m so excited for this next season of life.

Love you dearly,



Congratulations on earning your PPE degree! I admire your resolve and diligence, and thank you for your contributions to our discussions in Constitutional Law. Wishing you many blessings in the years ahead.
