Today I’m going to talk about Friday night and Saturday. After my test on Friday I got a tour of the campus which was pretty neat. I also got a look at the dorms so that I could have a better idea as to what dorm I want to live in.
I tell you I’ve never been to a place that had so many people that were as nice as these people were. I was swished away in the breeze of kindness that blew past me. I really think this school is one of the best things that has blossomed in my life.
Saturday was orientation and I thought it was going to be a long and a semi stressful day, but what I found was an environment filled with encouragement and joy.
One lady whom sticks fresh in my head is Debbie. Her last name has been lost in the hustle n bustle inside my head so I can’t recall it at the moment. I met her while on my tour of the campus on Friday night. My dad, the tour guide and I were walking towards her and she all of a sudden stuck her hand out to shake mine and said “hi Taylor my name is Debbie”. I was totally caught off guard that she even knew my name in the first place. She was so sweet and let me know that she was working on getting resources ready for me for the fall; so I’ll have the same advantage as all the other fully sighted students.
Another person who I’m really looking forward to next year is: Dr. Stutes. She is the Dean of the Music School at Wayland. The first time I met her was when I went to visit WBU back in February. I saw her on Saturday and she said “Oh hi Taylor it’s nice to see you again!” She was also very sweet and I look forward to being in her class in the fall. It made me feel so special that a few people remember me.
Saturday I got to pick my classes as I said (16 credit hrs) and register for everything else that I would need next year. (Dorm, meal plan, picture id, financial aid, ect). It was very well organized and made it easy to get everything done in a timely manner. Although, it did take about 6 hrs to get through every station.
In conclusion I am so ecstatic about going to Wayland in the fall and I can’t wait to meet new people and try new things. At the end of June I believe ill get to find out who my roommate will be. How cool is that. I can’t wait!!! J
My God is leading me so I shall fallow and obey. Everything is working out because I’ve put it all in high hands.
God bless. J
