Happy Belated #GenTX Day!

Yesterday, we celebrated our advocacy for higher ed in the State of Texas🏇 by sharing our college shirts on 📳social media ~ great timing before my school trip today!

This raised my awareness that I’ve been showing team spirit📢 a great deal lately!

Our Lady of the Lake University ~ where I’m finishing my PhD🎓 

Duke University ~ for Coach K‘s 5th NCAA🏆

 

 Texas Lutheran University ~ whose basketball🏀 team won the SCAC  

Cisco College ~ where I teach speech🎤 before my R.E. 💒 

Since I’m still surveying Texas student-athletes for my dissertation, NCAA players in the Southland Conference (Division I), Lone Star Conference (Division II), Southern Collegiate Athletics Conference (Division III) and NAIA Red River Conference can participate here!

This wk, I started my 3rd teaching job to add to my curriculum vitae: speech instructor @ Texas State Technical College Harlingen – where I happen to be taking my leadership doctoral courses through Our Lady of the Lake University! I’m eager to establish myself here yet will miss being a communication lecturer @ Texas A&M University-Kingsville
Differences, aside from the obvious (i.e., College vs. University), that I found to be interesting, include:
* there are all male faculty, mostly Baby Boomer Generation & tenured w/terminal degrees in my dept @ TAMUK, while there are all female BBG, minimal w/terminal degree in my dept @ TSTC, w/many faculty overall in my parents’ generation
* our working days & times only included our classes & office hrs @ TAMUK, while we work 8-5 Mon-Fri @ TSTC; therefore, due to my extra full day + night courseload @ TSTC, I can’t maintain my TAMUK schedule
Similarities that I appreciate include:
* traditional campus living (i.e., buildings, police, residence halls)
* student involvement (i.e., Student Govt Assoc)
* school spirit
Either way, I’m enriching my experience in different higher ed institutions & have my work cut out or me…
