This has been an interesting journey that is almost complete. I have had the opportunity to meet some great prospective students, talk with faculty from several community colleges and meet other recruiters from other colleges and universities. Best of all I have had the opportunity to reconnect with friends. Last week at the Student Success and Retention Conference I reconnected with one of my first mentors from Western Oregon State College.
I also stopped to visit a good friend from Lewis & Clark and Portland State. If was fun to see Gary and Merci and to meet their kids. When I came out of their house I noticed pumpkins sitting outside their door. Most times pumpkins are rotted when left out but these were deflated.
I guess this is what happens when pumpkins freeze for weeks and don't have an opportunity rot. Here are a few other pics from the trip.
