Fun Ahead

Fall Break is finally here!!!!!

I wasn’t sure if this week was ever going to end. I completed one group paper, two exams, and three papers, but I finally finished! This was definitely an exhausting week, but thank goodness fall break is here!

I’m leaving tomorrow morning with six other girls to go camping near Petoskey, Michigan! I went with basically the same group last year, and we camped at Sleeping Bear Dunes. I absolutely love camping and can’t wait to sit next to the fire and see beautiful Michigan scenery. The weather this week has been prime. I went running in Saugatuck this morning with a friend along Lake Michigan. I haven’t been running as much since I’ll be tapering this week in preparation for the marathon next weekend!

Even though this past week was crazy busy there were some cool events on campus. Last weekend Hope College welcomed its 12th President, Dr. John C. Knapp, on Friday, October 4, 2013, in a ceremony. Since I am a member of the Student Ambassador group I had the amazing opportunity to be apart of the celebration. On Friday afternoon I attended the President Inauguration Luncheon where I sat with former Hope College President, Gordon J. Van Wylen, and former CEO of Herman Miller, Max DePree. Both of the men were insightful and full of wisdom. I love the people around Hope, and the networking opportunities they provide.

Well I’m off to start packing and crossing off things on my long “to-do” list.
