Maybe my excitement is because I remember my first weekend on a college campus and all the life changes that occurred during my first year at college. Maybe it's because college is a fresh start and a new world for those arriving. Maybe it's pending interactions and changes in the student's learning and personal growth.
Whatever the reason, in the middle of a stressful day while I scrambled to get things ready for orientation and classes I started singing "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year." While the start of school may not be Christmas, it is a season worth celebrating.
Good luck to everyone out there starting their fall semester!
