Charles Davis, Gia Chevis, and Tim Thomasson were the faculty sponsors on this year's trip. We went to dinner at Heartland Brewery, a Times Square favorite of mine (mostly because it brews its own root beer, but they never put quite enough ice in it; it's remarkable how consistently low the ice level is).
We had the chance to catch up on life at Baylor, and they asked me about my time in New York. After dinner, we got a cup of coffee at Starbucks (actually, we got multiple cups of coffee; we didn't all share one cup of coffee) and walked around Times Square. That evening was a great time of fellowship. It was nice to get a taste of Baylor.
I remember being a student on the same trip last fall. I was a candidate for the researcher position in New York, and the trip was one week before my office visit. I remember hoping that I would get to visit with the Baylor folks if I were selected for the researcher position, so this time with my teachers was really special.
