Hi all! I've been having some "technical difficulties" but now all is well and I'm safe and sound and blogging. First night was a great introduction to Rhode Island. We went to Paragon's for dinner and then back to Hope dormitories. I had a single and was surprised to find that with the window open, it was not the blazing hot temperature that I had expected. The next morning we all woke up early and beat the rush of people waiting to sign in for the Brown program. I was really suprised by how many people there were in the program! We all have to go to class now but I'll get back with more later.
