The day had finally come! Yes, it was here! The day where I did not have to endure a three-hour, Business-Law class had finally arrived! Now, instead of sitting in a lecture hall scribbling notes as fast as humanly possible, I was off to my UPB Spirit and Traditions meeting that I had been missing since the beginning of the semester. When I walked into the meeting room in Taylor I was greeted by so many familiar faces that I had missed very dearly. During the meeting, we discussed the upcoming Funny Freakin’ Friday event and decided on next month’s Late Night Breakfast theme! It was so nice to relax and enjoy UPB for once instead of stressing over class.
To my surprise, I was also introduced to a group of PIT Crew members who were there to sit in on our meeting. PIT Crew is a group of students that are in Programmers in Training, which is the 2nd and last phase to becoming a member of UPB. I encourage anyone reading this, whoever you are, to apply for next year’s PIT Crew! You won’t regret it! I mean, who wouldn’t want to be a part of one of the best organizations at JMU??? Just sayin’.
Well that’s all for me! Unfortunately, next week I’ll be back in Zane-Showker for my Business Law class. Again, I highly encourage all of you to apply to UPB if you get the chance. I have a ton of fun at the meetings (when I can go!) and I think it is an organization all of you readers could really enjoy.
