Paris France

Jetlaged students after landing in Paris
A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit Paris for my first time.  The trip was brief, almost as much time was spent in airports and airplanes as was on the ground. I went to get our international students settled for a semester in the 'City of Love.'  I did manage a little bit of time to wander as a tourist, visiting attractions as time permitted including spending Fathers Day walking up the northwest leg of the Eiffel Tower, which I have to say, if I wasn't at home with family wasn't a bad way to wake up!

Brittney and Zaid!

If you have been watching ABC's Windy City Live, you know who Brittney and Zaid are. Winners of the Summer Dream Wedding which was last night at the breathtaking Hotel 71 in downtown Chicago. Brittany is also the only one at Harrington that can keep all four Department Chairs out of trouble!  It was amazing to attend the big day...congrats to the Bride and Groom!

Tune in to Windy City Live on Tuesday morning to see the official photographer Julia Franzosa's  pictures of the happy couple.
