Pam Richter – Class of 2011
December 13, 2010
I will never forget my first day working in Belk Library Archives and Special Collections. I was a nervous freshman who was looking to make some money to help pay for college. When I first started out, I had no idea that it would turn into a life-changing opportunity.
Today is my last day at the archives, as I will be graduating from Elon University at the end of this semester. With graduating comes a lot of goodbyes and also reflections of my time here.
My time at the archives has been one of the best experiences of my life. I have learned about myself and found new passions in my life. I’ve learned so much about myself and am extremely grateful of every opportunity I have had here to pursue my curiosities and interests.
Throughout my three years working at the archives, I have worked on many projects that I have loved and extremely proud to say that I have helped working on.
Next fall I will be pursuing a master’s in Library and Information Science, concentrating on archival studies. Wherever I end up, I will take a lot of great memories working at the archives in Belk Library.
