欢迎, 歓迎, Приветствовать

They’ve arrived!

After weeks of feeling like a ghost-town, the Middlebury campus is now abuzz with future Chinese, Japanese, and Russian Language School students.

Working in Axinn all day, at the “Computing” station of the Welcoming Center, gave me the chance to interact with a lot of the new students. I was surprised at how diverse the people were; apparently Language Schools appeals to everyone from current college students to 80 year-old grandparents.

I was also very surprised at the amount of people coming for these three languages (Chinese, Japanese, and Russian). Out of the three registering today, I assumed Chinese would be the most popular. However, I would say I saw an almost even amount of Japanese and Russian students as well. It was a lot of fun helping them out, be it technologically (I speak fluent BannerWeb now, let me tell you) to simply giving directions to Gifford (“I’d tell you it’s the big stone building at the top of the hill, but that doesn’t really help you”, was my advice to one kid).

Great thanks to LIS for my free lunch at the Grille. I’m also very excited for the volleyball nets put up on the quad next to McCullough.

But most importantly:

THE RETURN OF PROCTOR!

Dreaming of the wonderful breakfast panini I will make in the morning,
