We’re hosting our newly admitted students today and the place is jumpin’. It’s only about 11:45, and we’ve already had an alumni panel and reception (o.k., those were last night), a welcome session, and break-out sessions for each of the degree programs. Visitors are currently either grabbing some lunch, attending a panel discussion with current students, hearing from the Office of Career Services, or engaging in a roundtable discussion with the folks from the International Environment and Resource Policy or with Students in Security Studies. And so it will go, for the rest of the afternoon. Liz did an amazing job of organizing roughly one bazillion sessions for the day. And balloons. She also organized the balloons.
I have just these few minutes to write this post, check my email, etc. Then I’m off to a lunch discussion on international economics. I fully intend to learn something while I’m there. (A perk of the job.) This is an annual event that, while exhausting, gives meaning to our work throughout the winter and early spring. It’s such a treat to put together names and faces!
