Today my office had a pizza party to celebrate the awesome year we have had here in advising! It was the first time this semester that I have realized that I won’t be coming back! I am definitely going to miss all of my coworkers and my bosses! It is definitely sad that I will no longer have this job, or that I will no longer be blogging to all of you!! Graduation is 5 days away and I am excited but it is also very sad! I know that it is the beginning of my new life as an adult but it is just very scary to think that I will no longer be a student!!! It is a very bittersweet feeling… Hopefully it all works out for the best!

Yesterday at Lanphier high school, the college advisors held a decision day for the seniors! Decision day is basically where seniors tell everyone what they are doing after high school! There were kids going into the military, community colleges or four year schools! There were quite a few going to uis! It was an awesome event and was put together very well! First the kids would sign a t-shirt for the advisors to keep, then they got to enter s raffle to win prizes. After that the kids got s sticky note and put there names on it and posted it on a map to show where they were going! They also got a free t-shirt and a brownie! I got to help work it which was an experience since that is the job that I am going to be doing!! So excited for my new job!

Our bake sale was a complete success! We raised over $500 for the babies program at Decatur Prison! It was an awesome turnout and there was lots of goodies! I am so glad that our last bake sale of the year went so smoothly! It was awesome!!!

Thanks to everyone who came and bought stuff! You are all awesome!

Bake Sale!!

Alpha Phi Sigmas, the Criminal Justice National Honor Society, is having our final bake sale tomorrow in the PAC! The funds are going to support the babies program at Decatur Correctional Facility. The babies program allows mothers who are about to be let out of prison keep their babies up to 18 months in the correctional center so that they can establish the mother child bond. The program currently has a 0% recidivism rate, so it is a really good program!! Everyone should come to the PAC and buy some goodies to help support this program!

Today starts the last week of actual classes at UIS! Everyone is pretty excited about class almost being over! Next week is finals week and then summer break! Or for me, I graduate and start my new job :)! I am pretty excited about graduating. I wish it was here already! But I only have 12 more days! Exciting!!

Hope everyone has a great day and make sure to stop by the bake sale tomorrow! It is going to be a huge hit!
