Life is just sweet because it is the start of the semester and work is starting to pick up. I could not be any happier to be in the CSPA program because I enjoy working with college students and I cannot wait to start my career in Higher Education. My passion has always been this field since my involvement in my undergrad and life at Canisius could not be any sweeter especially with all the fun programming that goes along with it.
In the past couple of weeks, there has been some awesome events that took place on campus. I have to say “Welcome Week” was such a success here at Canisius College, I have no words to describe these events. My favorite events that took place during the week were Laverne Cox’s presentation and Petey’s Birthday Party. I had the pleasure of getting my picture with Laverne Cox after she talked about her life, which was absolutely amazing. For those of you who do not know who Laverne Cox is, she is an actress on the television show “Orange is the New Black”, which can be found on Netflix. I just started watching the show and it is pretty amazing! Anyway, Laverne Cox is also a transgendered woman and an inspiration to all. It is not just about writing papers and reading as a grad student at Canisius, but also enjoying the finer things in life too on campus, such as these wonderful events. The picture below was me with Petey at his birthday party event. This was also an awesome program if any of you on campus had a chance to attend. These programs were well worth it and it is nice to take a break from grad life and enjoy campus life as well. I will continue my posts about whats new in Student Affairs and my upcoming trip to my ACPA conference in Florida that I will be attending with my cohort in March. I am excited for the trip!
