Quote of the Week:
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and starting on the first one,” –Mark Twain, who was pretty good at getting things done.

Already stressed? Inhale to a count of four. Exhale to a count of four. It centers your breathing and gives you a minute to remember: you got this. You’re here.


Think of trees too? That’s always peaceful to me. (Photo from


Save the Date:
-Tuesday, August 30th, the last day to add/drop classes.
-Monday, September 5th, Labor Day (a.k.a. first mini-vacation of the semester).
-Saturday, September 10th, the first home football game (which is against Lehigh at 6 p.m.)


It’s Pumpkin Spice Season:   

The Pumpkin Spice latte (PSL, to those in the know) is soon to make its modern-day declaration of the true beginning of Fall. Starbucks claims to have generated over $80 million in revenue over the past eleven years, however they are now lagging to say when they will bring about the crowd-favorite (though personally I’m hoping for a secret-drop akin to Beyoncé’s Beyoncé album). Dunkin Donuts is not playing as coy with its release date on August 29th and McDonald’s falling close behind on August 31st.


Soon, everyone. Very soon. (Photo from


Books to Ease the Tension:

The beginning of the school year demands a little bit of awkwardness from its participants who are meeting their new friends, classmates, professors, and librarians (right?). These may help:
Level Up Your Social Life, Daniel Wendler
How to Talk to Anyone, Leil Lowndes
-And of course, How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie, says “actions speak louder than words, and a smile says, ‘I like you. You make me happy. I am glad to see you.”



#FalveyPeek at the Week provided by Hunter Vay Houtzer, a graduate assistant on the Communications and Marketing Team at the Falvey Memorial Library. She is working toward an MA in Communication at Villanova University, and also on learning how to whistle (which she never quite got down as a kid). Send your thoughts/suggestions to Hunter at #falveypeek. See you next Monday for more!
