One of the things I most enjoy about higher education is that we get to start over every sixteen weeks. If things are not working, we only have to wait until the end of the term. If things are going great, however, it is another story as I really do not want the term to end when that happens.
We are approaching one such time. The start of Fall term. This opportunity along with one of my two favorite times of the year are rapidly approaching. The first week of classes vibrates with new energy. it may be a crazy, but it is most enjoyable.
If you are wondering, the other time of the year is graduation. You get to see the changes from the the first day of school to four (or five or six) years later and what they have become.
Not only do students start anew, but faculty seem to be refreshed from time to focus on research or gearing up for classes. It is also the time for new faculty to arrive. This year we have five new faculty starting. Two in Theatre, and one each in Dance, Mass Media, and Communication. It will be an interesting time as we also have to get them up to speed on what is happening.

Thanks to a compute problem I had to redue the entire website.
