Arrival Day 2013!

Yesterday, we drove 650 miles without incident, moved into our digs (Chancellors Hall for the profs and Katherine Thomas Hall at UWEC for the students) and got supplies for our rooms.Today, we received a whirlwind introduction to the city and county of Eau Claire WI, Tomorrow, the work begins. Students have good project assignments and seem nervous but confident. I know they will make us proud…

I am amazed at how well we are treated here. The county and city employees turn out in force to welcome us, and to patiently explain the structure of local government in Wisconsin…. even though they must be very busy with their work.
