I hope everyone is having a great quarter so far! I'm getting tons of homework and quizzes already and it's just week 2! I hope everyone is getting to school safely with all this snow Jersey has received lately. It just keeps piling on! Personally, for me,it's hard to take public transportation with all this now because there's a lot of sidewalks that aren't shoveled yet.There's just too much ice everywhere.So please, while your driving, be alert and drive slower than usual! If you're walking,you can easily spot the ice on the ground so try to avoid stepping on it but if you can't avoid it,then step on it lightly.
On a much more serious note,by this time I know everyone has heard of the Arizona shootings and the lives of the victims that were taken,including a 9 year old girl, Christina Taylor Green.
Even at her tender age, Christina had already taken on a political role.She had just been elected onto the student council of her school and wanted to attend Penn State so that she could receive an education and assist those less fortunate than herself. She came from a well known family. Her grandfather was Dallas Green, a former major-league pitcher;and her father was John Green, a scout for the Los Angeles Dodgers. She was thankful for everything she had so she knew she wanted to help others.In a twist of fate, her life ended in a tragic way but also began on a tragic day.She was born on September 11,2001. To her parents,she was a perfect angel and,now,after death,she is their angel.
The following are events that will take place on the Newark campus.Hope everyone can attend at least one of these!
The following are DISCOUNTS that many students do not know about! Take advantage of these!
Now that you know,I hope you guys would take advantage of the NJ Transit discount because I know many students take public transportation and buying bus and light rail passes every month can make a hole in our wallets.So think smart & act quickly!
WISHING EVERYONE SO MUCH LUCK FOR THIS QUARTER! I HOPE IT STARTED OFF GREAT AND I HOPE IT ENDS THE SAME WAY!
