Even though it is only the first week of spring quarter, I'm already VERY busy.

Classes...I'm taking only thirteen credits this quarter, but I also need to print my Mexico Portfolio. So let's say fifteen credits. While that might not seem like a lot, my three classes are pretty intense. During the introductions, each professor said like their course was a capstone-style course. In Marketing Management, we are doing a marketing simulation "game", writing a marketing plan, AND we have a case analysis due every Tuesday. In Campaign Management, we are coming up with a full PR campaign for a company. And right now I can't even remember what we are doing in Marketing Research, probably because we haven't been assigned our groups yet.

Spring recruitment for Greek organizations starts this weekend. RIT is now doing formal recruitment so girls get to register up until Sunday and then they go around to ALL the houses. It's going to be fun and it will be great to get new girls (my future little is out there!) but it's going to take up a lot of time during an already busy week. So what's the other thing that's keeping me so busy??

Mr. RIT!! Mr. RIT is a pageant that my sorority runs each year. This is the third year we are running it. We donate all of the money from it to the Cystic Fibrosis Research Foundation, one of our philanthropies. Since December, I've been the co-chair and at the end of winter quarter, the chair left, leaving me in charge. There's still a lot to do!! The show is next Friday at 5 pm, come check it out!!

Oh and don't worry, I'm still writing that part two for the parents!
