Welcome to College!!!

Tonight is the first meeting of my new First Year Experience class at the College of Charleston. With 22 students enrolled, this is my largest FYE class ever!

We are fortunate to have a very nice classroom

The students come from many different states. Eleven do come from South Carolina.  Other students are from North Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, Massachusetts, New York and California.

Five of the freshmen are student-athletes. Their sports are baseball, softball, equestrian, sailing, and crew.

I'm looking forward to seeing the students new blogs that they are creating for this class.  And their first blog posts are due next week. So we'll see what they have to say about their lives so far in college!

Grave Finding in the ACE Basin!

One of the highlights of my summer was to finally find a mysterious grave site in the woods down in the ACE Basin.

The graves are briefly mentioned in a tour guide of the Boynton Trail located within the vast Donnelley Wildlife Management Area, which from my house about 50 miles south of Charleston off Highway 17.
The small grave site I found after much effort
My well earned smile! 

On my BirdsEyeViews blog I did a detailed post about this adventure. Click here to check it out!
