So basically Oswego is the popular kid that everyone wants to know. Being that I work for the Admissions Office, allow me to use this time to plug how awesome Open Houses are and if anyone wants to find out more about the 2 upcoming open houses you can go to www.oswego.edu/visit.
Any-who… on most days being on campus before the sun has fully risen does not sit well with me, there’s a certain air around those crazy long Open House days that makes it ok. Visiting schools, at least for me, was one stressful time, I had high school, plus scared yet excited of graduation, trying to figure out where I wanted to go, what I wanted to do (still figuring that part out haha). But looking around at the families that were visiting, I rarely saw a grimace, a look of confusion (unless they just couldn’t find that room they were looking for), just lots of smiles. And i love that.
I think one of my greatest rewards from being a tour guide is being able to share my enthusiasm about college, and especially about Oswego, with students and families trying to make that difficult college decision. My favorite comment of the day was when a mother came up to me (in response to another tour guide she had just delt with) and said how nice she was and how nice it was that there was such a confident and smiling face in the midst of all of the confusion that comes with deciding what college to go to.
In other news, I just bought a book… and it’s not a text book, i’m so proud of myself haha. It’s “I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell”… and it’s absolutely hilarious.
Also in other news, there’s the And 1 Basketball tourny this weekend, and if anyone ever saw the show, i’m so excited to go! (for more information, there’s flyers all over the campus center or you can check out www.oswego.edu/sapb)
Oh! And in third news, the United Way Walk-a-thon is this Saturday (October 18), registration is at noon outside of Lanigan, and entry is only $10 per person. It’s such a great cause and everyone should come out and help support! Plus if you have family and/or friends coming up, it’ll be a great way to spend time with them! Woot woot!
