What to Do @ the End of a Semester

1. Take your spouse out to eat to make up a little for all the dinners you were late for or missed.

2. Look at a list or picture of those who attended your welcome week events and make a list of those who did not come back or disappeared along the way.

3. Write a note or Christmas card to these students that they will receive at home...warm and encouraging...not where were you, you dirty dog!

4. Find 2 or 3 books to read before spring semester starts ( ok, one or two may be ones you "read in").

5. Take a day alone somewhere to think, pray, de-compress.

6. Have a "Pizza talk-back session" with 4 or 5 freshmen about why they got involved, why they stayed connected and why some friends did not.

7. Have a "Pizza talk- back session" with 4 or 5 upperclassmen about what worked, what didn't and why. 2Principles to remember: students think and talk better with pizza in their mouth and you need to ask questions and shut up and listen....don't explain why and your pizza, listen and make notes!

8. Read your Bible a little more.

9. Work out out topics/outlines for your talks for next semester.

10. Take your spouse out to eat!
