“It’s a credit to them. They do a great job balancing their time,” she said. “It’s almost like working a full-time job and being a student.”
Basketball player Chelsea Bridgewater was among the attendees. She’s headed to law school at BYU after earning degrees from Utah in psychology and political science. Although she took her last final earlier in the day, Bridgewater did take time to reflect on her four-year journey.
“It’s kind of a whirlwind and so it comes quicker than you expect,” Bridgewater said. “At the same time, it’s been a long and challenging but exciting road.”
As for moving on, Bridgewater admits it may be tough to give up basketball.
“I’m going to have to play intramurals or something. I don’t know,” she said. “It’s crazy. It’s a crazy milestone.”
