Hey everyone! We’re back with a fresh installment of our personal favorite segment- Domino’s, Dining Halls, and Dives!
This is when we find a local alum (could be you next time!), and take them out for lunch! While we’re at lunch, we chat about all sorts of stuff, including what they’re up to, and what they’re looking forward to!
This week, we met up with one of your classmates, Matt Marshall ’18, who graduated this May with a Forestry degree from the Rubenstein School!
We caught up with him after work for a snack (a big snack) at Bueno Y Sano in South Burlington.
We got to chatting with Matt, and learned more about his summer so far – from getting into lots of board games to continuing his job search – he looks like he’s having a pretty good summer so far!
More from him later in the post, but first, pictures of the most important thing – the food.
^^That’s Kathryn’s Burrito Bowl – not served in a bowl, but just as delicious as if it had been.
Everyone else grabbed a burrito, some with Chipotle chicken, some with steak, all with the spicy sauce.
Now back to Matt:
How have your first couple months out of college been so far?
My first couple months out of school have been good so far. I went on a road trip to the Summer Camp Music Festival with some friends and spent a few days in Chicago afterwards.
I’ve been to the live show for the Risk! podcast with my mom, younger sister, and my friend/her family. I’ve been to a couple concerts around town and generally hanging out with my friends around town, we even started a Dungeons & Dragons campaign!
What has been your biggest challenge?
The biggest challenge for me has been trying to find a job that will let me utilize my degree and everything I learned at UVM.
How are you working on overcoming it?
Always sending in applications and on the lookout for new jobs.
What’s the biggest lesson you’ve learned so far?
I haven’t had any life lessons come along this summer, it’s been fairly relaxed!
Any advice for your classmates?
None that I feel qualified to give, since it’s only been a few months since graduation.
We’ll check in with Matt again later this year and see how he’s doing, and if any life lessons have come knocking on the door!
Speaking of knocking on the door…
Are you local to Burlington? Would you like to get a free lunch, and chat about how your adventures since graduation? Does this post have you feeling like this?
