Days on The Lawn, vol. 1

The first Days on The Lawn of the year is in full swing...actually, it's more than half over at this point! The day started off a little wet and the rain site was prepared, but we decided to start the day on The Lawn in accordance with tradition. CavDog greeted guests, walked on marble for the first time (he did not like it), and happily accepted petting and praise from prospective students and their parents, though my sense is that many recognized him and opted not to say hello.

After the morning welcome, everyone was able to visit a specific school presentation and after that, students were sent off to visit classes and parents went to Newcomb Hall, the student union, for special sessions.

Of course, schools from one of the most populous areas of the state are on spring break right now, so our office is literally mobbed with prospective students of all ages, making it a pretty busy day. I hope that those of you who didn't get a chance to ask questions or to say hello with feel free to call to speak with a dean or post a question here.

The next DOTL is Friday...hope to meet a few more of you then! Please be sure to say hello if you see me and CavDog!
