The campus once again comes to life, as the first week of classes brings the usual array of "Welcome!" banners, freebie booths and Campus Center concerts. Surveying the sea of faces on the steps, my knees go weak for a moment as I realize I'm older than just about everyone there. I can still vividly remember my first day as a freshman, listening to the first of what would be hundreds of courtyard concerts, awed by it all. That was eight years ago, and you could say I've gotten a little jaded since then.
