Spring Tour Wrap-up 2011

I really have no idea how to even begin to summarize this semester’s tour.  It was my busiest tour to date.  I travelled as far south as Pensacola, FL and as far north as Lake Placid, NY and did return gigs at 3 of my favorite schools.  I visited my alma mater and had my best friend from high school show up to a program.  It was a whirlwind of travel, meeting awesome students and advisors and lots of fun along the way.  So without any furthur ado, here are my top ten moments from the spring tour.

10) On my visit to Austin Peay State University, I took a little break from spreading girlpower to check out the Country Music Hall of Fame.  I’m not a huge fan of country music, but that Tammy Wynette exhibit had me singing.

9) Late night programming can be tricky,but one school that has really figured out the magic formula is Elon University.  They had a great turnout for their late night program and what was the trick?  Chicken fingers!  Their student planning committee was a lot of fun the work with.

8) Several schools I visited this semester had really good anti-violence campaigns.  One of those schools was Monroe Community College.  They were our final stop on the tour and they had a ton of great events going on.  They even had their student planning committee do some skits before the program about date rape, sexual harassment and stalking.  It was a great way to bring those issues into our discussion and kick off the program with some great energy and information.

7)  I really got to see some beautiful campuses this spring.  One of the most striking was Spring Hill College.  The campus has a fantastic mix of original buildings that have been refurbished and modern buildings.  It is the quintessential Southern college campus and the sorority women there rock!

6)  When I got on campus at UNC- Asheville, I checked in on Facebook Places. Twenty minutes later guess who showed up at my program?  My best friend from high school! I hadn’t seen her in years and having her in the audience was such a joy as was catching up over sushi later that evening.  I love little surprises like that on the road.

5)  I’d been watching our fan count on Facebook most of the semester and after a presentation in Virginia….baam!….we hit 4,000 fans! And we love everyone of you guys!  Thanks for your support!

4) North Country Community College systems brought me in to do programs at three of their campuses.  Not only were the programs wicked fun, but the Lake Placid/Saranac Lake area was incredible beautiful.  It was the beginning of April, but man, it SNOWED! Like a LOT! And this little southern girl was thoroughly impressed.

3) Three different schools brought me back for a second program this semester.  One of them was the totally awesome group at Saint Catherine’s Catholic High School.  Those girls are a blast!  And unlike my program there a year ago, I didn’t have to wear a bikini instead of underwear this go around.  But that’s a whole ‘nother blog post.

2) Meeting amazing young people who are passionate about ending violence is just another incredible part of the job.  At Northern Illinois University, I met a wonderful young lady named Latasha who put together our event on her campus and was clearly working to make a difference in the world.  It’s because of students like her that the GFB legacy has grown so strong over the past ten years.  We also got some awesome media coverage!

1) Longwood University.  What can I possible say?  It was a Panhellenic sponsored program and girls came out in drove even in the pouring rain.  It was a big and enthusiastic group and we had a ball!  For me personally, the biggest joy was meeting the members of the Alpha chapter of my sorority and seeing in person the charter for my sisterhood. I totally dorked out and all the girls were so gracious towards me.  It was one of my favorite experience thus far.

This semester was thrilling and exhausting and rewarding.  Every day I felt blessed to work for an incredibly special company and to be a part of Shannon’s legacy.  I can’t wait for Fall 2011!
