For the past ten years or so, my spring road trip season has focused around soccer. Vacations were planned and other items done by the soccer schedule. Now that the soccer player is in college, that is the fall road trip season.
This year, my road trip season started yesterday. I took a day trip to the Niagara Falls region. My 20 year old daughter attends Niagara University and was inducted into Delta Sigma Epsilon – a national scholastic honor society for students, faculty, and alumni of colleges and universities with a Catholic tradition. Since Niagara is a Vincentian university, it qualifies to have students who are juniors and seniors inducted into Delta Sigma Epsilon. This is particularly an honor for my daughter as she is truly only a sophomore but she has junior credits due to taking college courses during high school and taking AP courses during high school.
The induction ceremony was a wonderful time. It was held in the main gallery of the Castellani Art Museum on campus. The campus of Niagara University is on the Niagara River in Lewsiton, NY and is a beautiful setting all in itself, but to sit in the main gallery and watch almost 70 juniors and seniors be honored was wonderful.
What a great way to start the spring road trip season!
