Taking it all in

This article is a part of The S&B’s Anniversary Project. See the entire project here.

These photos, while they may not immediately seem particular to this week, reflect the specific intent of many cameras: to take in what may be their last experience of Grinnell for the indefinite future.

Cloudy skies

Photo contributed by Rylee Beltran.

The last sunset seen by Rylee Beltran `22. “It felt absolutely unreal, like I was in the end credits of a movie. I remember being too stressed to cry and too scared not to,” wrote Beltran. “I went back to my room to pack up the rest of the last few years of my life into any box and suitcase I could find.”
