It's been about a month since the 2012 presidential election has concluded. I don't miss the misleading political commercials as well as the hard-hitting and condescending television debates.

First days are filled with questions like: "What program are you in?" or "Is this class required for your program?" asked in classrooms so packed that someone has to sit in the front chair with no desk.  There are classes that were waitlisted or packed to capacity and the teacher still let students a...

Okay so I kid about the headline. I'm not the type that watched "Dirty Dancing" and/or sang with Jennifer Warnes or Bill Medley. I'm going to give a little low-down of my experience here at MATC.
