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: Tufts University
Location: Medford MA
I try to spend one day a week reading other bloggers posts. I came across one on Tufts University located outside of Boston in Medford MA.
Tufts has one of the best college nicknames in America-The Jumbos. That nickname has connections to Ringling and Barnum Circus.
The blog post found below will give you some insight on why the name Jumbos. I want to thank Audrey Kletscher Helbling for letting me learn something new about a Tufts from her blog post. She is a very accomplished writer with an impressive list of accomplishments,
Her blog post on Tufts is below.
