Success! In today’s mail I had parcels from three different colleges.
Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut sent me kind of an odd little drawstring bag. I see now that I didn’t include that bag in the picture. What happened to that bag anyway? I think Joni confiscated it. Anyway, even though it wasn’t a t-shirt it was exciting to get something from them.
Fairfield University in Fairfield, Connecticut sent me that neat little red pennant that you see in the picture. I actually like that. T-shirts are cool but they always wear out eventually and that little pennant is something that won’t wear out and doesn’t take up a lot of space. I also got some literature from Fairfield about their school. I’m expecting to get a lot of college literature even from schools that don’t send me any goodies.
The big hit of the day was from the University of Maine at their Machias, Maine campus. Yes, I got my first t-shirt from the great state of Maine. Not only that, they also sent me a lanyard and a pen, both in the school color of green. And yes, literature! A good deal of literature in fact. They have a beautiful campus on the coast of Maine. I think I actually would like to go school there.
As you may have guessed, I began my email campaign on the east coast of our nation and will be working more or less toward the west coast. So the materials I receive in the early stages will most likely all be from out east. The exceptions are Alaska and Hawaii, which I think were the first states I covered. Isn’t this exciting!?
