Ladies and gentlemen...it's that time again.
The time small children dread and parents treasure. The time rooms that went dark for weeks are brought back to life. The time that books are dusted off and reopened eagerly awaiting to bestow their wealth of knowledge. The time pencil companies see a bump in their profit margins. The time educators don the armor of enlightenment and ready their weapons of wisdom.
It's school time ladies and gentlemen.
I know I may be in the minority here but I am very excited for school to start up again. I missed going to class and seeing such lovely friendly faces!
I am also very excited for PLC this year. I am excited to better get to know our new members and to continue growing the kinship with the current ones. I am excited to see what we can accomplish and the impact we are going to have as well. We have good things in store.
As everyone is getting ready for school, be mindful of certain steps. Please please please go fill out your FAFSA now. Yes it is a pain, but it is much easier to do it now than when you are in school. I'll even put this the link right here! http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ Look! There it is! Ready to be clicked!
If you haven't enrolled yet, go. Just go now. Run if you have too. Run into enrollment and scream at the top of your lungs about how badly you need enrolled. Plead and beg for mercy from the sins of being an ignorant undergrad...No but seriously if you haven't enrolled yet, you really need to go do that.
Also, go get some books! A lot of these classes require books for learning and what not. I don't make the rules people. You can purchase books at the bookstore in the Centennial Center, or you can purchase them online from places like Amazon or Chegg.
Dorms are all ready for moving in! Head down to the Residential Life offices in the club house located in close proximity to University Village B and go pick up your keys if you have not done so already. Get all moved in and take time to evaluate how much better your living conditions are than those students at OU and OSU. Maybe even chuckle to yourself if you're feeling rather baleful.
I know a lot of this can be confusing and just plain ole frustrating, so if you have any questions feel free to ask me. Or you can e-mail the very helpful, very knowledgeable, very amazing Joy Lin at firstname.lastname@example.org. She is here to help us with anything and everything we need. She is like the Obi-Wan Kenobi to our Luke Skywalker. Or the Rafiki to our Simba.
I am very much so looking forward to seeing everyone! Have a wonderful last few days of summer and get ready for an amazing year!
