Erika at Cedarville (CU) cont.

This is Erika's desk, which is right at the end of her bed. So, she has one long side of the room, with the closet to her back as she sits at her desk. Her roommate's side is the same. The window is at the heads of their beds, with the computer stand between the beds.

There is only one four drawer dresser for two girls!!! That was a challenge, but with underbed storage we managed quite well. Actually, it's not a problem until you get into winter sweaters.

The rest of the weekend was full of meetings for parents and students, some together and some separately and social activities. It really was an outstanding weekend. The one meeting they had with a skit about college kids and how they change during the four years was the best. At the end of that meeting they had all the freshmen move to the center of the chapel and all the parents circle around them in the aisles. Then he (the President) prayed for the parents and then for the students. I don't think there was a dry eye among the parents. It was a very touching meeting and a wonderful way to leave your child, knowing the love and prayer that they are surrounded with their. Dr. Brown said his door is always open to students, and you could tell that he really meant it. We left after church on Sunday, and Erika had a full day of activities to keep her busy.

Erika has a blogspot of her own, and has been posting regularly there (you can find it under my blogging friends--she is Nepo's Mullings). So, if you want to keep up-to-date with her, bookmark her blogspot.

You're right that Dr. Brown has a soft spot in his heart for students. It's probably both his greatest strength and greatest weakness as a president. I'll look forward to hearing more about Erika's experiences at Cedarville.
