Your Three Words: I made it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I made it to Friday!!!!!!! I still have a few more programs and meetings, but  - I made it!!! Thank you to my friends - fast food, Diet Dr. Pepper, an of course, Coffee - I couldnt have done it without you all!

 It's the end of a very long Welcome Week and we've welcomed about 3,800 new students by feeding them constantly, outfitting them with tons of new t-shirts, entertaining them every.single.night, and teaching them about getting involved and staying out of trouble. Throw in training 7 brand new student employees, an earth quake on Tuesday, and the ominous threat of  hurricane Irene this weekend and we have the makings of one of the most unique Welcome Weeks of all time!

I may seem whiny about this past week, but the truth is that I really enjoy it. I can't believe that it was 10 years ago that I stepped foot onto my own college campus and took in all the excitment of Welcome Week. I want to pull each new student aside and tell them about all of the great things that they have in store for the next 4, or 5, or 6 years!


What are your three words this week? Link up!

Wordless Wednesday

As if this week could get any more crazy...

Luckily, there was minimal damage and no injuries, but the shock and insanity of it all is noteworthy!

It's Welcome Week, Friends!

It's Welcome Week, Friends! One of the busiest weeks of my year. The week when all the students return from summer break and there is programming around the clock! I will be living in the student union for the next 5 days! My family will be eating hamburger helper! I will be collapsing upon return to my house and I will probably not be blogging!

Let's catch up next week!
