I had fun! The line was so long though, but that was to be expected.

This was not a good event for this first VNL. I encouraged first year and freshman students to attend all to regret making them do so when I arrived. It was not supporting for the amount of people. Really not as engaging for the first one. That sets the tone for the rest. And I honestly believe a lot of students will not be attending the other one because on the first one.

This was my first year and I really enjoyed the event! I was impressed with the flow of people through the buffet line. There was plenty of seating for me and my colleagues. I even met a few new people outside of my department. I was greeted in a very nice fashion by the folks at the registration table. I also enjoyed the speech by Chancellor Davenport. The tents, balloons and music made this a very festive event. I'm proud to be a part of UT!
