A few weeks ago, I attended the First Year Experience Conference in Orlando. This is a chance for all student affairs & academic affairs folks to get together, discuss new and innovative ideas of reaching out to first-year students, and basically socialize with some free food and free books. FREE BOOKS. Seriously? Geek girl heaven.
This was my first time at this particular conference but not my first time in Orlando. It felt great to be back in a familiar city and I even got to have lunch with former O-Teamers. It was also great to enjoy the warmer weather but the humidity is something that I will never get used to in the South. My hair + humidity equals Gilly. Save for the small money snafu, it was a great experience.
Rosen Hotel and my crew and I stayed at the Rosen Plaza Hotel. These are gorgeous hotels and the staff know their business. It doesn't hurt that the Rosen Campus of University of Central Florida is just around the corner.
