Up way too late

. . .so I'll make this short.

I've been in Iowa the past few days (am flying home today) for a volunteer weekend for alumni to reconnect with the college and with each other. It's been awesome.

I went to a presentation this morning on how alumni can help current students think through their life and career choices. The guy from the career development office said something like "Grinnell students are interested in so many things, and they're good at so many things, but they hate to make choices." Because, he said, they feel that would be cutting off possibilities and passions.

Good god does this man ever know his Grinnellians. (Or at least me.)

Leslie Madsen-Brooks,

Hi there! I leave this comment to thank you for signing the petition for Southwest Preboard and families.

Thanks!

I was contacted by a reported from the San Jose Mercury news and he is looking to talk to CA based people.

If you are the same Leslie Madsen-Brooks that signed the petition, please contact me!
