On February 15th LMU welcomed twenty prospective students and their families to partake in the interview process to gain admission to the Honors Program. This was the second annual Honors Day in which prospective LMU students who qualified interview in hope for admission to the Honors Program. I was part of the first group to participate in Honors Day, so this was the first time I was on the other side of the interview process. It was such a big day for me!
Check-in began at the Hamilton Math and Science Building at 10:30 a.m., and those of us already in the program who were helping had to be there thirty minutes prior. Merry, my suite-mate who is in the Honors Program with me, and I volunteered to help out together and we were both excited to meet the incoming freshmen! Because of the massive amount of snow that accumulated here in Harrogate that week, and the distance between Mitchell Hall, my dorm, and the Hamilton building, it was necessary for us to leave a little early in order to walk there in time. There’s one perk to living in the mountains in the winter: you quickly learn how to walk on snow and even ice without falling (or without people seeing you!) or slipping too much! Walking to class when it’s snowy and icy surely adds a sense of adventure to my day!
