A beautiful day on campus
Contributed by Brad Fuller
Yesterday was a very strange day for me. I woke up bright and early at 5 a.m. to be in the Athletic Training Room by 5:45 to observe the orthopedic surgeon’s clinic. Every Tuesday, Dr. Saunders (the team doctor from Dayton) is on campus to evaluate students that have injuries. While it may seem inconvenient to have to go this early in the morning, it works out very well because students don’t have to drive to Dayton to see the doctor and they don’t have to worry about scheduling it around class or other activities.
After I was done in the training room, I had a class at 9:10 and the class I normally have at 2:30 was cancelled. As you were probably well aware, yesterday was a very nice day (and possibly one of the last 70 degree days of the season). I had enough spare time yesterday to ride my bike! I did a 30-mile loop of backcountry roads, and it was very pleasant to feel the sun and the warm air. With rain coming in today and a busy schedule, it’s back to the books for me today. However, I should be well prepared for the day considering I slept 10 straight hours last night! I believe it’s a new college record for me, considering I usually get 6-7 hours per night; hopefully I’ll get back on schedule today and time change stops messing with my sleep schedule!
