If you couldn’t tell from the scathing heat outside – yeah, really, right? – it’s summer. If you’ve experienced a Chicago summer before, then you know it’s one of the most manic weather patterns across the nation. Sometimes it’s hot, sometimes it’s cold, and, more often than not, it’s a little of this and that. Whatever the case, there’s little room to complain. You’re out in it and ready to have fun.
Speaking of fun, we hope this last year has been enjoyable for you. We know we’ve had what some people refer to as “a ball.” No, really. It’s been an enviable task in taking education-related foundations and policies and turning them into breezy discussions and digressions online. Not to mention, it’s been highly rewarding having the chance to sit down with your spectacular administrators, faculty, and staff. We learned countless things ourselves, and judging from the responses over the last three quarters, we know you have, too.
That’s going to continue next year. What we started in 2010-2011 will carry over into 2011-2012. Right now it’s a little too early to digress on what exactly you might expect, but rest assured, it’ll be worthwhile content that will assist you on your engaging and exciting academic road.
Still, there’s plenty of stuff to absorb right now. So, if you’re taking a break from the outdoors over the next few months, and looking for a good (and quick) read, feel free to visit here. Over the past year, we’ve had the unique opportunity to publish some great conversations, packaged with some supreme information. Just recently, we chatted with Dean Paul Zionts; earlier, we discussed each program with the department chairs. Outside of that, we’ve touched upon scholarships, career opportunities, campus technology, and plenty more. We’ve introduced you to your advisors, we’ve opened your eyes to facilities within the College of Education. Somewhere in there we managed to squeeze in hot topics like graduation, certification (even for advanced programs), or endorsements (twice, actually!). Pretty wild, huh?
The best part? It’s all there for your reading pleasure. It’s not going anywhere. Three words: Use it wisely.
Anyways, have a great summer and see you in September!
