Sweat

August 20th, 2009

The past two weeks have been insanely busy. My resident assistant training is finally over. We had good times, but we worked hard as well. The weather has been very supportive. It was constantly around 90 degrees with high humidity. Sweat all over the place.

All the first-years for this year moved in on Tuesday evening. It was a hectic day. I have never seen so many sweaty parents together. After an hour of moving stuff, the fire alarm went off. One of the first-years had driven from Chicago to Wooster and had gotten into an accident half a mile away from the college.

I have a nice room this year. I live in Kenarden on the 3rd floor. Kenarden is a very nice building, but there is no air conditioning. Up to yesterday, I had zero fans in my room. That meant more sweating. Right now, it is raining and things are finally cooling down a bit.

Orientation for the first-years has started this past Wednesday. Everyone seems exceptionally excited for college. That makes me happy. I gotta feeling that this year is going to be a great one.

I have planned the first trip for students. On September 6th, we are going to Cedar Point with 100 people. All my responsibilities for this year are putting pressure on me, but so far I believe that I will be able to handle them all.

The semester starts this Monday, so updates will follow each other more quickly from now on! Keep checking back for good and bad stories about life at The College of Wooster.
