Golden Ticket

I got a golden ticket

Welcome to the Tube!

For the past week you saw signs around campus.   You might have heard your RA and other students talking about it…and finally you discover the magic of the tube.  It is more than just a green tube.   It is your ticket to free stuff, VIP invitations to select campus events, a connection with important resources on campus and so much more.

Starting this Monday, September 14 you should tune into this blog as we will spend the week discussing all the reasons you should read this blog and meet with your coach.  We will discuss everything from hot spots on campus, tips for student success, fun campus trivia, free things to do around Denton, and the insider’s scoop on how to work your way through campus.  Make this blog your own, by making comments.   I will do my part and end every blog with a question that you can respond to.

It has been exciting to meet some of you, like Stephanie Williams who is here from Illinois and Dan Lyche who is a huge Houston Texans fan.  I am looking forward to meeting all of you…

As this first entry comes to an end I am reminded of one of my favorite movies, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (the original with Gene Wilder, although I was a fan of Johnny Depp’s performance in the remake).   Every kid wanted a golden ticket because it gave them access to something exclusive.  You did not have to find a tube instead the tube found you ….think of the tube as your golden ticket.

Speaking of Willy Wonka, what’s your favorite candy bar? tell us in the comment section and we will randomly draw 3 people to win their favorite candy.
