Since today is a holiday, our teachers have given us a day off, thus, no office hours today.
Anyways, earlier today, the Residential Community Advisors had put together a carnival, which was located right behind our dining area on the grass. Even though I did not play any games, I feasted on cotton candy and popcorn.
Future ILC Scholars: Be sure to take time to thank your RCAs because they are the team that runs these events. I must further recognize the advisors on my floor because they work so hard to plan activities to stress diversity. Aside from listening to students' concerns, they always put the students first. They take time to acknowledge the feedback from students, as well as their suggestions.
I appreciate the Summer College experience so much because I now have a better understanding of what dorm like is like. It seems as if I have been tested, whether I can be independent and make good decisions on my own. So far, I must say I have passed the test.
I strongly encourage this program because it is more than just about academics but it is a self-learning process as well, testing one's capacity ever minute of the way.
