BACK 2 SCHOOL

It is hard to believe, but back to school time is upon us once again. It seems like just yesterday we were handing out degrees at graduation and welcoming in the latest members of the Herd Alum family. Now, here we are, getting ready to welcome future alumni with the annual Week of Welcome, followed by the first day of classes just a few weeks from now. From an observation standpoint, it is a unique time of year, as these bright-eyed teenagers walk onto campus for the very first time, getting ready to take that next step in their young lives, knowing full well that in just a few years these inexperienced freshmen will blossom into accomplished, well-versed adults, ready to tackle the world. Do you remember your first days, weeks, months on campus? Head on over to our Facebook page to share your story of those awkward first days adjusting to college life. Who knows, maybe your story will help a student in need!
