I was standing in the hallway of Campbell Residence Hall, hot and sweaty from helping a young lady and her family lug countless boxes, bags and pillows up three flights of stairs, when it hit me. She put her key in the door of that corner room and BAM! All of a sudden I was 18 years old, nervous, excited and a little bit scared, putting my key into that exact same door.
I volunteered last Sunday to help with move-in day and was assigned to Campbell, the same hall I spent my freshman year so many years ago. It had been a fun morning welcoming students and their families, pushing bins, carrying all the things that make a room home up all those stairs. (Really? No one from the first floor was moving in while I was there?)
I also lived on the third floor of Campbell-just a million or so years ago. Of course I had already run down to my room, but it was locked and no one was home. I stood watching this young woman at a different room and that's when I remembered that, originally, I had been assigned to that very room and she was repeating my history right in front of me. I had been tripled with two sophomores when I first moved to campus. It took a few weeks, but I was eventually able to move just down the hall and around the corner with someone whose roommate never showed up.
MSU's Agriculture Hall has a new name.
Some people think of Jan. 1 as the start of a new year. I consider the last week of August, when students and faculty launch another school year, to be the real New Year's. And, this is absolutely my favorite time of the year. All you need to do is walk the halls to feel the excitement and energy that comes with all the fresh faces and ideas among the students and faculty. This year, we also have some fresh paint, carpet (yes, we are replacing the 30-year-old carpet!) and new furnishings in the mix.
