Today we had the Ivy League Connection Orientation at Pinole Middle School. Fortunately, we were able to get started right away. Don started off by mentioning the basic rules that we will need to follow. He especially emphasized that we need to act as mature adults, stick together as a group, and blog every night. The chaperons also introduced themselves to the parents. Then Ms. Kronenberg talked for a little while, and she reminded us that it is extremely important that we give back to our community. She reminded us that we are representing WCCUSD and the rest of the students. At that moment, I felt grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of the Ivy League Connection.

After we went over the itineraries,the whole group then got back together. Don went over the different loaner items he has. He also went over what and what not to pack. I learned that it is very important to pack an umbrella because it can start raining anytime in the summer unlike over here. Most importantly, though, I learned that the ILC will help me grow as a person.
