Today was the first day back of school. There is a an excitement that vibrates through the campus. Students print out syllabi. Campus coffee grinds fresh espresso beans. Chick-fil-A back in action, line swerving around the union. People crisscross through campus, greeting new faces. Geese waddle, wondering who all these new people are, on their turf.
There are fresh beginnings at the start of a fresh semester, in a new decade. Questions flash across our minds.
How will classes be?
What opportunities will a semester bring?
What new friends will we make?
How will we grow and challenge ourselves in new ways?
How much longer until…summer?
