Well, this concludes another year of MICA Pre-College. (cue Vitamin C's "Graduation (Friends Forever)") Thanks to all of you for making it (truly) one of the best years yet! We hope you've enjoyed keeping up with the BEAT. It has definitely been fun documenting all of your adventures and experiences. Hopefully all the hard work you put in has paid off and now you can look back with nothing but fond memories. Consider this blog a virtual yearbook of sorts that you can now use to reminisce on the days of Pre-college's past. Again, kudos to you all for making it another year to remember and, in the words of Fall Out Boy, Thnks Fr Th Mmrs.
