As you can see we are very excited for spring semester and all the joy of spring! One addition to the lobby you may have noticed is a large blue bucket.  If you see someone do a nice thing for someone else or someone does something nice for you, stop by the desk and ask for a water drop.  On the drop, please write what this person did and how grateful you are.  Feel free to use names only first names or no name at all. The desk clerk will hang it in the bucket for you.
