Fall on Campus...

There is nothing I miss more than walking around the University of Arkansas campus during this time of year. The campus is gorgeous all the time, but add the changing of the leaves mixed with the crisp cool breeze blowing the leaves across the yards.....ahhhhh.... I loved being on campus. I loved college. I will return one day. As I drove near campus today I was reminded of how beautiful it is this time of year. I long to be a college student again. I plan to return as a graduate student in two years. I cannot wait.


I haven't been to campus to see my name on the sidewalk, but a friend of mine has and sent these to me a while back...it's pretty cool to see my name on there. I finished my course work in December of 2004, so I got bumped to the 2005 section on the sidewalk. But my degree says 2004, so that's what matters, I guess.







I took this today, while driving in my car--but the leaves are gorgeous!!! I'll get out to take some better shots this weekend. But until then...

That is SO strange you posted on this beacuse David and I have totally been talking about the same thing! We drove down Dickson Saturday night, and I almost cried looking at the campus. I LOVED being in school too. I know I complained while I was there, but going to school was so much less stress than being in the "real world." I always chide David that he doesn't know how lucky he is to be in school. I want to go back too! There are just so many careers I would love to try my hand at. The UofA was such a great school. I mean, they challenged me, but I learned so much and really loved the atmosphere. The UofA will always be my heart. It makes me feel good to hear you say the same things! Jordan will be so proud of you as her mommy and all the drive, motivation, and accomplishments you have and will continue to make! You are being such a good role model for her! I think pursuing higher education is the best example you could ever set for your kids. As a teacher, I know it helps to set the stage, so to speak.

I admire those of you who loved college and want to return. Although I did well in college, I did not love it. It was a means to an end. I was soooo excited when I graduated and never looked back! I have no desire to go back and get my masters. Maybe I'll change my mind one day, but for now I am so glad to be DONE with school. I hope you can pursue your dream of going back, and I'm sure you'll do great!

I miss the UofA in the fall too. That campus is gorgeous! That is one of the reasons I chose it. Go see your name in person sometime soon! :)
