OUWB Orientation: Day 2/3

Today’s inane image of the day:

This is what my front door does to the sun when it wants to invade my foyer — woohoo prisms!

Last night, myself and three of my peers went to a Beaumont faculty member’s home for dinner with him and his family. The dinner was definitely one of the big things I was looking forward to because it offered an opportunity to connect with a faculty member as well as my peers in a more intimate setting. Plus, it was refreshing to see a relaxed and happy physician [so, it is possible to have it all!].
As I drove home last night [very full from a delicious meal], I felt even more convinced that I had made the right decision — while I believe that small schools generally result in a pretty close-knit community, I also believe that there is a right and wrong way to go about fostering its growth. OUWB seemed to put a lot of thought into this, because everything seems to be flowing perfectly.
Today we have a session on Diversity & Multicultural Initiatives, Health Insurance & Graham Counseling Center then the rest of the afternoon is dedicated to PRISM. I have an awesome PRISM group so I’m excited to do the low ropes challenge course with them later on today!
Just this past weekend I was [understandably] concerned about starting school and how everything would fall into place. Now, I’m just relaxed and ready to embark on this journey alongside my forty-nine peers [/corny statements… for now].
