To everything, tour tour tour

I'm done with tours for the semester, officially, but I'm 14 people away from having 300 people take my tour this semester! Maybe I will sign up to help with Centralis this weekend.

I'm such a freak. Here's the breakdown

Number of tours given-17
---Standard Office tours-4
---Friday/Saturday programs-2
---Special Visits-5
---CMU and You Day-3
---Centralis(bus tours)-3

Number of people "toured"-286
---Standard Office tours-25
---Friday/Saturday programs-16
---Special Visits-92
---CMU and You Day-74

Miles logged around campus-???
Sharing my view of this campus with the world-Priceless

Big thanks to quelita, none of this would have been possible without her.

It really has been great. For every tour brat I get, I seem to be blessed with someone else who I truly connect with. On Saturday, I watched a mother and daughter share a look with each other, a look that said, "we've found where you belong" and I will carry that with me forever. This was so worth it, even though I had to wait until I was twenty-five to do it.

Goals for next semester:
-I will be more confrontational with my tour groups. If you are going to be rude to me, or people on campus, I'm going to call you on it.
-I would like to break at least 150. Spring semester has less recruitment events, but I'm going to try.
-I will solicit more admissions directors for their views on recruitment.
-I will come to terms with Betty's "fake it until we make it" philosophy.
-I will create a CMU userpic to use with posts like this!

    Who's That Girl. How did I love this movie? I remember watching it 6 times when we rented it, but couldn't watch 15 minutes of it a few years ago.

    The movie of The Dark is Rising still gives me nightmares. Not because it was powerful, but because it was the worst reinterpretation of a book…
