This last weekend was the ten year anniversary of 9/11, one of the most tragic events in our history. I remember I was in the 3rd grade when this happened, and I had no idea what was going on. I felt so lost and confused that day, until my parents sat me down and explained what had really happened.

Some of you might have been thinking where have I been. Admittedly, I’ve been around, but had a hard time writing. You see, writing isn’t something that you just do.

Being “home” has allowed my mind to drift back into its usual cycles. A lot of that means the re-emergence of thoughts generally focused around one of my obligations as a Delt: recruitment.I serve on my chapter’s recruitment committee as its chair. I oversee the general activities of our chapter in regards to this vital process, and draft most of the plans for the events we hold when freshmen are interested in rushing.
A big welcome to the Class of 2015 and all returning fellow Yotes! After leaving the Club Fair tonight, I was thinking about how great our campus is. It was so nice to see familiar faces intermixed with the new freshmen, all ready to start a new year, and excited about the opportunities that are ahead.
I know that the other bloggers and I have written a lot about what we love about our school, but it’s time to hear from you! Let’s start a conversation about what we appreciate most about C of I.
A lot of people fear the power of online social networks, the pervasiveness of their existence and the level of intrusion into their lives. The jury is still out on a lot of the implications that arise from this new phenomena of our culture, and I’m still not sure how I feel about a lot of what’s happening within this mostly unexplored frontier.
It’s so close; I can smell it! College! The dorm life, the awesome campus events, the life changing classes; I cannot wait for this experience to begin!
