“How Do You Wait?”

Last summer Julie Rice and I were given the task of making arrangements for lunch for all of the LCS faculty who attended the Summer Institute.  Day one went great.  Boxed lunches were dropped off outside of the Roger Evans Athletic Center and there was plenty to go around.  And then there was day two!  […]
