October 2nd! And a chill is in the air this morning :). It sure feels like a school day when I was a kid. It’s dark outside and all the indoor creatures (human and furry) are quiet and snuggly. Outside, nature is busy packing nutrients way down deep into the roots and tubers of trees and smaller plants for the oncoming winter.
On Sherman campus there are lots of things happening this month.
Today, all the newest interns are getting ready for CCX – the outdoor “Clinic Challenge” of team building and spirit elevating, yours truly included. :) I’m kinda considering what to pack this morning as it is starting out chilly and who knows what the temperature will become during the day. I’ve had lots of experience with daily temperature ranges in New England but …I feel kinda silly starting out with my heavyweight clothes in South Carolina. However, wisdom says to be prepared! Nothing worse than cold, wet feet and noses.
New first quarter students began their orientation yesterday. They’re probably wondering where everyone else is. Second quarter and above begin today. New interns, like I said, will be outside today.
October also sees the return of Sherman’s awesome IRAPS Conference – The International Research and Philosophy Symposium which promises to be quite exciting!
And something new for this October – The Sherman Wellness Fair ! Oooh ya… and we will be also having a “Trunk or Treat Halloween” experience 🙂 for the kiddies of the area!
I have a feeling there’s much more going on…. But I better run and get my wooly socks on! I’ll let you know how it all goes….
