Here we go...

It's been one week of forgetting names, getting lost on campus (Grounds, excuse me) and being wilted by 8:30 AM. A week without seeing the ocean, eating a [good] bagel or seeing Red Sox highlights on the news.

But I like it here.

I'm the new Assistant Dean of Admission at the University of Virginia. I thought it might be interesting to record my experiences over my first year here. Feel free to comment, whether you're a student, colleague or just a random person who landed here through some surfing.
