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: Eastern Connecticut State University
Location: Windham CT
Eastern Connecticut is another university I have never visited. It is located in Windham CT and was founded in 1889.
I found a cool link on the university website that lets you tour campus via drone footage.
The campus has over 5,000 students and sits on 184 acres. It is the 3rd oldest college in the state. Windham is located in the east central part of Connecticut located about halfway between Hartford to its west and Providence to its east.
Eastern Connecticut sponsors college athletics on the NCAA Division III level. The men’s basketball team has enjoyed a lot of success under Bill Geitner.
