One week from today I will be sitting in the Minneapolis international airport waiting for my flight to Spain. Never in my life did I think that this would actually be happening. Actually, I have dreamed of doing this for my entire life, and I am so happy that it is finally coming true.
When I looked on the front page of the Witt website today, I saw the new class of 2014’s new student day pictures of “what will you do at wittenberg?” and of course I had to check out all the pictures. Its amazing to think that just 2 years ago I was in their shoes and thinking the same things. Reading all the amazing things these freshman want to accomplish, I know now that it all is possible at Wittenberg. It is astonishing what resources are available to students here and what you can do if you put your mind to it. That’s one of the thing I love about being a student at Wittenberg, all of the opportunities and experiences that are here just waiting for students to take.
As I sit here in a little coffee shop at my cabin in Webster, Wisconsin, I am thinking of all that these new students have to look forward to, and all the fun they are going to have. I also am really missing all my friends back in Ohio, getting ready for the first day of class tomorrow (haha! I don’t have class until end of September ☺ ). So I leave with this:
