Kick Starting our Blog for Fall 2014 Semester!! by Michaela Correa

With the first two days of class over and done with, I feel it is time to kick start the blog!

How were your summers?
How are your schedules?
Did you have fun?
Did you hangout with lots of friends?

There’s nothing much to report, nothing much to say so early in the semester.

So! What do I have to say? Well…
Here’s to the summer soon past. Here’s to the semester just started. Here’s to the friends we have and the ones we will come to know. Here’s to falling leaves and pumpkin spice. Most of all though, here’s to all of you for making it to another semester!

I am so excited for the PTK meetings to start up again so that I might see old friends and make new ones! I have missed you all so much over the summer, see you all again soon!

Vote, Vote, Voting!: An Inside Look into our Election Day Meeting by Michaela Correa

Vote, vote, voting!

That was the exciting happening of the final meeting of the semester, picking four new executive board members! We had professional looking ballets and everything!

There was something absolutely wonderful about listening to the heartfelt speeches of the people I have come to consider very good friends as they attempted to plead their case and prove just how qualified they are for the role. I wished I could have voted for all of them, every single candidate was wonderful and I loved them all so much. It was insanely difficult to vote for only three of them, as I am sure everyone agrees.
Despite this happening during the final meeting of the semester, it never once held a feeling of finality; all I could feel was the anticipation of jumping right back into it next semester

In the end, I am overwhelmingly proud of everyone who was involved and I want to give a big, big congratulations to our winners: Deborah N. Freire, Julius Diaz, Patricia Zeballos, and Elizabeth Ildefonso! To all those who didn't get elected, I wish you all the luck in the world because I hope to see you all run again next semester!

Stay tuned for more blog entries to be written after finals and good luck to everyone during finals week!
