What Do You Remember Most About Your First Day in College?
I start back to class today, and have a 40 student first year seminar at 8 am. I am nervous, as I always am about a new semester, but know that I surely must be more ready for my task than my young "charges."
My strongest memory of my own first day of college (at Antioch, I'll reveal), was how smart everyone seemed, the other students. They spoke like little adults, and I felt like a middle schooler among them.
One young lady who sat next to me in a French intro class actually leaned across the aisle of a classroom and picked a piece of cheese off the front of my shirtand dropped it into a tiny tissue in her hand. And she smiled at me.
