Chel is—in a word—cold. Just after thawing out in the summer sun of Brazil, she returns to Centre and the wintery winds of Kentucky. "It was weird not to have someone burst into your room every hour," she says. But now she's back with her nose to the grindstone. To read more about Chel's vacation in sunny Brazil, click here.
Laura is learning to be more specific when she mentions "home." These days, Centre seems more like home than Georgia. "Who would've thought that after my first night at home, I actually missed my bed at Centre?" she asks.

Tess has hit CentreTerm head on. Three weeks of only one class…easy, right? That's what Tess thought until she realized the sheer number of tasks she would need to complete in that amount of time: "…three short papers, one long paper, one in-class report, and a final…all covering two complete novels and a short story." To find out what class Tess is taking and how she's coping, click here.
