To all my fellow classmates, aka family members :)

Hi everyone! 

As you probably realize the semester is almost over which means our time together in FNED will he over :( I consider you all like family and have grown very close to many of you. Jess and I were talking and want all of to stay close throughout our time at RIC.  We all are so comfortable around each other and have the same major so why not stay friends? Jess and I have recently became a part of the recreation center here at RIC and would love it if all our FNED classmates, (family members) would join with us and do fun activities such as until use the school swimming pool and work out rooms in between classes! Jess and I thought this would be a fun idea to spend time and stay in contact with everyone while being on campus because she and I are both going to miss everyone once the semester is over!!!

Hopefully we can talk about this is class! Or after class!

Love always,



  1. Lauren,

    This is a very recreational way to support one another-I like it!

    I have been saying for a long time how I think they should have a group on campus where all education majors can meet up and just talk out their anxieties and concerns because you NEED support. Every major does but especially this one because it's the hardest job in the world and there are so many flag points you have to hit.

    I have a friend who’s in the Library Sciences Grad program at URI and she meets with an ALA (American Library Association) group once a month. Librarians and Library students have the opportunity to meet up once a month, I think it’s the first Friday on the month. They just talk about what classes they are taking, get perspective on classes and teachers and routes to take. It really eases her tension and she makes like-minded friends in the process.

    Maybe it’s time we officially create a group of education majors: Elementary, Middle, High, College & Youth Development! Let’s be the change we wish to see! Perhaps your suggestion is a step in that direction!

  2. Love this idea, Lauren. And maybe this class will end up meeting to work out or hang out or have study hours or drink legal beverages every month until you all graduate. How cool to invite everyone in for that support :)

  3. Awesome idea! I think it is important to have a support system in place especially when trying to navigate through all the demands of school, work, and life! What a great way to vent, relax, and have fun!!
