Welcome to winter quarter! We made it. There were a few arrival glitches, a few stumbling blocks but over all we feel it all went great! Thank you to all of you, thank you to those who stepped up at the last minute to bring a parent to the hotel. Thank you to those of you who waited so patiently at the airport and your student didn’t show up or they decided to call a friend. Thank you for your happy smiling faces at the airport, thank you for remembering to bring your sign, you even brought a snack for your students to munch on while you waited for your other student.Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Those of you who have students at the Kent campus – Your students can’t always get to Auburn campus to see us, please let them know that Housing will be in Kent on Thursday, January 11th from 11a – 1:30p. We will have “Lunch with Housing”. At that time we will go over Housing information, inform them of the days we will be in Kent, and basically share IP Housing information with them. Plus – we will bring them lunch! Who doesn’t enjoy a free lunch!
