Today is our last full day at the ranch! It is such a bittersweet feeling. Students are excited to go home to their friends and families, but they are also trying to enjoy every last moment at the ranch. Currently, students are writing on each other’s yearbooks and finishing up academics. Yesterday the students went to tour a local college, the University of Northern Colorado. It was great to get off the mountain for a little while to see what great opportunities UNC has to offer. Not to mention, there was an endless buffet that everyone loved. Poetry Slam on Tuesday night was a huge success! Nearly every student shared a poem, and the support and encouragement in the room was incredible.
It is amazing to see how close these students have become this session, and I am sure it will be difficult to say goodbye tomorrow morning.
