Welcome to another Monday at the Universities at Shady Grove! I know Mondays can feel extremely daunting, I’m feeling that way right now, as the intensity of work is picking up right before we get a much needed break for Thanksgiving. For this reason, I’m going to keep my post short and simple this week.
I really want to simply explain something that I observed at the Grove this week, and how happy it made me. Just one of the many reasons that I love being a student here.
Early on Friday morning I had gotten to campus a little bit early, with enough time to get my much needed soy latte from the Green Grove Cafe. (where the service is always impeccable) After I had paid, while I was dozing off waiting for my drink, a flyer caught my eye. It was for Thanksgiving meals to-go for students. This really caught me off guard and touched my heart, because at all of the other schools I have attended I have never seen such a thing.
The prices of the food seem extremely reasonable, and the fact that the kitchen was able to acknowledge the fact that the population they work with is busy students, many of them who are also working many other jobs. I beamed with pride as I saw this, and left the cafe with a smile on my face.
Have a productive week!
