this is it

Hi Everyone,

The bleachers are full of proud parents carrying flowers and stuffed animals. People who don't normally wear socks are wearing ties. The opening strains of "Pomp & Circumstance" have been wafting up from the field and just now Kaitlyn rocked the Star Spangled Banner. This is the last official post to the 2012-2013 course blog.

I am proud to be a member of this community.  You have all accomplished a great deal this year, in many different ways, and I hope you're proud too.  Thank you for all your contributions to this learning experience.  I wish each and every single one of you great success, and I look forward to following your adventures online and in person.  

Sapere Aude.
Dr. Preston

school's out

For Travis:

the 608 grad lounge is open

We're here from 8-10. And Josh beat me to class for the last time. And, speaking of things Josh beat me at, he is this year's blog posting champion with 662 posts. (I'm going to get to 500 today.) Thanks to everyone for posting blog stats. Ming had the most page views (10,262), Michelle had the most followers (36), and Hayden had the most comments (405). I'll get back to posting after I finish the next board game.

Check out the vocal stylings-- this guy could sing the phone book and make it sound good.  (Thanks, Dylan!)

608 will be open 8-10 graduation morning

For anyone who'd like to get a parking space early, or have a place to hang out with family and friends, or have one last quiet moment before the Big Walk, room 608 will be open from 8-10 tomorrow morning.  Your parents, friends, and even that cousin you only see at events like this are all welcome.

June 3

Psych.  There isn't one.

Today we'll be setting the program for the final presentations.  Please be ready to report exactly how long your presentation will take and what you will need to make it happen.  If you have tech needs please be ready with links or media to test so that everything is ready to go.  Same with catering and set design as necessary.  After today no changes will be made.

[PLEASE NOTE: Every member of your group must post blog statistics in order for the group to be eligible to present.  Mahalo.
