Today is one of the new student orientations on campus this summer. I am here to advise the Honors Program students entering as freshmen this fall. In the meantime, I am also getting things together for the trip to London. Today, I am printing out our guide for the walking tour of London filming locations for Harry Potter. One of our fieldtrips will be to find some of the locations that have been used in previous Harry Potter films. Of course, we will all get our pictures taken pushing our trolleys through the barrier to get onto Platform 9 3/4 at Kings Cross station!
I'm looking forward to getting to the Atlanta airport next week and meeting all of the students who will be on my plane. It will only be a portion fo the total number travelling to London, but it will be good to get the thing started. Often times, the anticipation can be completely unnerving, and it takes the actual first step to put all of that into perspective.
