I love the opening of a new academic year. It holds so much promise: “I’ll do great things!” from the new student. “I’ll do things differently!” from some returning students. “Only one more year to graduation!” from those who can see the goal down the road. There’s enthusiasm, excitement, a fresh and positive energy. And everyone is ready. How are we—all of us— going to approach the new year? The door is open. What’s on the other side?
