Visit Day, impeded by neither snow nor rain

Is “goopy” an acceptable meteorological term? Even here in New England, where we’ve no shortage of creative terminology for various types of weather (we all know to fear the dreaded forecast of a “wintery mix”), today seems to beg for its own descriptor. All of our team fortunately made it back fine over the weekend from our various Thanksgiving travels, only to be greeted by a big, gross snowstorm that started Sunday afternoon, and continues as I write this. Of course it can’t just be a bunch of snow, though, which is an inconvenience, but which the region is collectively pretty good at handling. It started as snow, changed to freezing rain at some point early this morning, is currently a cold sleet, and is predicted to return to snow at some point today, lasting until at least tomorrow morning. Those prospective students who brave the forecast to join us for our final Visit Day of the season are a hearty bunch indeed. Do your worst, weather – you can’t derail us!

Meet the 2019-2020 Admissions Graduate Assistants

With both the academic and admissions year well underway, it’s a good time to introduce (and re-introduce) our Admissions Graduate Assistants. These Fletcher students are crucial all our operations, and in many cases will be the first person with whom prospective students correspond and visitors meet upon their arrival. We’re so happy to have John and Madhuri (our second-year returnees) back, and to welcome Dani to our team, as well.

Events!

It’s hard to imagine more of a toe-dipping into the admissions travel season than attending a fair here in town for my first recruitment event of the fall. That’s how the schedule worked out this year, though, and so Monday night I headed over to Boston University for the Idealist grad fair, always a pretty enormous event, given the number of universities in the Boston area.
