Getting Ready for Dissertation Boot Camp:)

Hello Everyone,

I hope you are excited as I am for this weekend! I know it's going to be a lot of fun and hard work (especially for the DH people). This is my fourth year at the Retreat. I must tell you it is exactly what every grad student needs. I spent the first two years doing the outdoors activities. For everyone participating in the outdoors activities, embrace and enjoy the experience. These activities are great for trust building, communion, realizing your inner strengthens, and having the opportunity to be one with nature. This will be my second time in the Dissertation House. I my first experience was wonderful and very productive. I've already been thinking about what my goals are for this time. Well, I look forward to meeting new friends, and seeing my old ones:) I will be checking in and posting online through the weekend!
