Unity is Strength

September 3, 2014 - 2:48pm
What kinds of things have you accomplished today? Maybe you finished a big work project. Maybe you got the kids off to school. Maybe you treated a patient or taught a student. Maybe you even made a great discovery. Did you do it completely alone? Chances are more likely that you had some help. Whether it's a colleague, relative, professional, assistant, student or simply another human being, there is little in this world that we can accomplish completely alone. Collaboration is a very powerful thing. Young poet Mattie Stepanek once said, "Unity is strength... when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved." Not a day goes by where I don't spend time working with someone else in my office and the results are always better than if I had tried to go it alone. There's strength in collective minds and success in sharing tasks. I love nothing better than bringing all sorts of different people with varied skills to the table to create something remarkable. That unity and collaboration has produced some pretty wonderful things, in my opinion.

Sage advice

August 27, 2014 - 12:59pm
Get a fan. That was the first piece of advice I found myself offering new freshmen as I helped them move into Campbell Hall last Sunday. There isn't any air conditioning in the hall and the forecast for the week ahead looked downright steamy. I lived on the third floor of Campbell and I remember just how warm it can get. I tried to chat with all of the students as I helped them find the check-in table or lug boxes up the stairwells. Some were more than happy to chatter away, ask advice and offer their thoughts. Others seemed too nervous to do much talking. One young lady came right out and said, "Oh, I'm so nervous. Well, not bad nervous-good nervous. This is all so crazy that I'm here. Do you have any advice?" Ask any Spartan alumnus for advice and I guarantee you'll get plenty. Get a fan. Go to class. Study hard. Make friends. Join a club. Get to know your professors. Find a tutor. Be open to new experiences. Form study groups. Get a bike. Do the Izzone campout. Go on a study abroad.
