Orientation week had officially come to an end and as the first day of classes drew closer, so did Hurricane Isaac. Everyone was busy watching the radar and making preparations for the storm. Now being from Michigan, I had never experienced a hurricane or tropical storm before, so needless to say I was pretty excited. Snow days are an integral part of Michigan educational culture, so I came to Florida with the unfortunate knowledge that I would no longer spend a day off of school sipping hot chocolate with six feet of snow outside. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Florida has hurricane days. It was announced that the first day of classes would be cancelled due to Isaac.
