An update from Ashley, a sophomore flute performance and environmental studies major:
We started off our day meeting at Boaz Hall to wait for the Super Shuttle. It was running a tad late, but we ended up getting to our terminal about 20 minutes before the boarding call.
After we boarded the flight, I promptly fell asleep for the 2 1/2 hours that consisted of the travel time. Zzzzz. We had a nice dinner at TGIFriday’s, where we met a very nice student named Jess who was our waitress. She filled up our water bottles for us and told us she was getting a double major in mechanical engineering and aerospace science (I believe).
The hotel where we are staying is the Radisson Hotel. The shuttle driver came to get us and basically told us that there wasn’t really anything within walking distance food-wise … oh, well! After settling into my room, I unpacked and now I’m currently blogging and getting ready to turn in.
Our day tomorrow starts bright and early – waking up at 6:30 am to catch the 7 am shuttle to the convention center. I’m really excited about tomorrow’s service project – more updates on that tomorrow!
