Small College Georgia (SCG) emailed me late last night with the itinerary for orientation week. August 13th at 10 A.M. I will be starting the first leg of a full packed week. I also noticed that they have Sunday scheduled as “Assist Students on Move-In Day.” Cool. I don’t know how helpful I could be but I’ll be there. I will probably be mistaken for a student again. When I came for the interview I stopped a young lady to ask her where the building I would be interviewing in was located and she said, “Oh, are you looking for your adviser?” I smiled and said no, I am here for an interview. With everyone calling me sir now as of late, that was a welcome mistake.
I could tell from looking at the email that SCG hired seven new faculty in all (Colleges from Mississippi, Tennessee, etc.) I’m coming from Florida by the way. Big Time State University (BTSU).
From looking at the itinerary, I can suddenly feel the gravitas of the situation and am anxious for it to begin. I hadn’t heard from the college in a while so even though I knew I was hired it still seemed not quite official. Things will probably start picking up from here.
Oh yeah, four days until the big move….
