The frenetic energy of an overstuffed school begins to permeate Union. Though the vibe is still predominantly positive, the tone is intensified by the sheer number of teenagers, including 500 freshman. Today Tanya had to yell out her office window repeatedly to boys trying to jam and jack the salt and sugar vending machine. Finally she implored me to go out and say something to get their attention. I did. They stopped.

Tomorrow I plan to sit out there and have a conversation with the potential leaders of our 400 building lunch foyer. Nothing works better than mature peer pressure.
