Last night I sent out my first batch of fundraising emails to potential donors for Testing Limits/Insulindependence. What a great response I received! It was really awesome to see that some people opened the email right away and then - bam! - donated 10 bucks, like it was a no-brainer. I'm still a bit behind as far as hitting certain fundraising benchmarks, but it's been such a confidence booster to see the number of contributions slowly creeping up over just the past day, since sending the email.
In other news, spring has finally sprung here in Hanover! Today the green ("both the physical and emotional center of campus," as I say on my campus tours) was full of students and townies playing frisbee, eating, studying, lounging, babysitting, you name it. People are running around in shorts and tank tops. We joke that the college president has a deal with some higher power to bring the sun out just for the prospies, or prospective students, who are visiting campus this week to decide whether this is the right school for them. My roommates and I celebrated the warm weather by getting froyo at foco (college speak for frozen yogurt at the cafeteria) and enjoying it - where else? - out on the green.
