Highlights from the trip:
- I presented a program on apartment-style residence halls and how in the last 21 months since I started my job and opened 2 new halls I made positive changes in move-in, programming, and policy enforcement training. I had a packed house for my presentation and received very high evaluations. Yay!
- The food was great. We were provided with some conference meals and we also got a per diem to eat out. I never eat out, so this was way exciting. Fresh seafood, steak, and yummy vegetables. Good stuff.
- We stayed at the Williamsburg Lodge, which was attached to the convention center. I have been to 5 SEAHOs now, and this was the 2nd nicest (we stayed at a spa mountain resort in Asheville, NC - nothing can beat that). I had my own room and CABLE TV! I have not had cable television in 2 years. Oh, how I miss thee. Seriously, how does one live without Keeping Up with the Kardashians and House Hunters at 2am?
- Thomas Jefferson was the guest speaker at dinner. He was really funny, answered questions on the fly completely in character and was perfection. I always did think he was the sexiest president.
