How was your holiday?

AU is filled with life and energy once again. It is quiet and peaceful, but a bit sad without students around. The windows of Anderson Hall, excepting mine, are cold and dark. When you ask returnees ‘How was your holiday?’ Almost everyone will reply, “great!” Probably this is not true in every case. I know that I loved my parents but was often glad to return to the greater independence of college.

In the olden days (that’s when I was an undergraduate) we had a horrific schedule. Christmas holidays came before the end of the semester. We returned to frigid Hanover, NH with term papers yet to be completed and finals yet to be taken. Of course, we had planned to study over the holidays, but rarely did. January was ‘cruel and unusual punishment.’
