My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.
The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.
In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.
I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: Edgewood College
Location: Madison, WI
I have a few universities I hope to get to visit one day including the University of Wisconsin in Madison. There are other colleges in Madison including Edgewood College. The campus is minutes from the Capitol Square, located on 55 acres on the shore of Lake Wingra. I have to admit I had never heard of Edgewood before.
Edgewood started out as a junior college in 1927 for women. Today it is a private, co-educational liberal arts college that is affiliated with the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters of the Catholic Church. They have an interesting history.
