With the beginning of Fall semester 2014 less than a month away, the time has come to slowly begin saying goodbye to the joys of summer at Ole Miss.
Farewell abundant parking places near buildings where we work at any given time of day. It’s been great knowing that if I occasionally want to sleep in, there’s still likely to be at least one available spot when I arrive on campus. But I realize it won’t be much longer until University Police officers have more opportunities to write tickets for the various violations that come with increased traffic.
So long hot, humid temperatures. With unseasonal cold fronts already passing through the region, the climate has begun to chill. Thankfully, it’s also been just the right amount of sunshine and rain for those long walks around our award-winning grounds.
Adios to lighter work loads. Most of the faculty, staff and students I serve have been absent the past two months. I know all that will change come mid-August.
