I drove around Southeastern Louisiana University today - first day of classes!  The excitement in the air was evident! New shoes, book bags, sorority letters, new friends, new places to live and the list goes on!  It is one of my favorite times of the year!  I also love that as I check Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, all the first day of school pictures remind me of what a special time this is in the lives of parents and students who send their children away from them whether for the semester or for a day!  As we embark on this fall, let us remember to be kind to one another, to help in any way and to just make someone's day better.  It is almost like a new beginning with so many possibilities ahead!  So study hard, make new friends, join a sports team, club or organization and have a great 2013-2014 school year! Who knows, maybe our paths will cross along the way! Peace and Love, Mari Ann "Dr. MAC"
