Hot time, summer in the city…
July 4th, 2014
Hot time, summer in the city. I’m not complaining. This is the time to be here, hay fever and all. I have a chunk of iceberg in my freezer for summer drinks and a thriving garden. All is well. Indeed, we are predicting about another 10% growth in graduate studies this fall, just what we were hoping for. Our office is humming along, processing applications and dealing with the day-to-day business of graduate studies. If we take home all the prizes at Wimbledon this weekend it will turn out to be a spectacular July. Go Canada Go.
