Ahh my dear Longhorn Confidential readers, I am terribly sorry for my drought in writing. The past few weeks have been consumed with work, luckily all fantastic events!
Last weekend, I served as a team leader for the Hatton W. Sumners Student Leadership Conference hosted by the Center for Ethical Leadership and the LBJ School of [...]
Oh lordy, how many times have I seen Romeo and Juliet? My fiance was in a production last summer (Austin Shakespeare at Zilker Park). It was a fantastic production in a really wonderful outdoor venue, but there are only so many times that a girl can watch her boyfriend confess his love for Juliet (even if it [...]
I love the Olympics! Guess this is the Sport Management side of me coming out, but I love the competition, pageantry, nationalism, etc. I had a few professors at UT who worked for the Olympics in Sydney — how cool is that? Tonight, I’m so proud that my Austria won a gold medal!! Woo hoo!
When I studied abroad [...]
Horrible news has hit The University of Texas campus this evening. Our beloved Cactus Cafe will close in August due to budget cuts at the Texas Union. THIS IS A TRAVESTY PEOPLE! The Cactus Cafe is the venue where many famous Austin artists began their careers: Lyle Lovett, David Garza, Nanci Griffith, Lucinda Williams, Shawn Colvin [...]
I can’t believe this semester is starting up! Some of my dear friends from the Longhorn Band days came over for dinner tonight. We had a very interesting conversation about graduate school at UT-Austin. Students in the College of Education and the School of Social Work are facing some of the strictest budgets on campus.
I spent the last week on a cruise to Mexico with the fiance’s family! Oh yeah, it was fabulous! Plenty of time to sleep, read and get sunburned. I’m definitely one of the palest people I know, but I managed a bit of a suntan as well as a strange mark on my leg.
I’m sure that I will post again about football, seeing as the National Championship is this week. When I saw this sign, I knew that my Longhorn Confidential readers would enjoy the message:
Oh crazy Texans and their football! Hook Em Horns!
Ahhh the first day that staff is back on campus. This week is very slow on campus — no students, no faculty, but the trusty staff is here!
It may not have been the best time to schedule a vacation, but the weekend before finals was a gorgeous time to visit Chicago!
Shameless plug for my graduate program!!
I am getting a Master’s in College and University Student Personnel Administration through the College of Education. Long title, but basically I get to have one of the best career fields I can think of! People in my program work in various areas of campus — financial aid, development, student affairs, [...]
