NSLC Experience

July 31st, 2005 11:27pm Leave a comment

NSLC is over 🙁 It went by really quickly but I had the best time ever. Thursday was the last day of scheduled activities and yesterday was checkout day. We ate breakfast at 7:30 with the remnants of our TA group and slowly people dwindled off and left.

NSLC people can skip this part – I’ll be explaining the basics to all our non NSLC friends. There were about 300 people that attended the conference on Medicine and Healthcare. The group was split into two teams – Med A and Med B each with about 150 people. The groups were further divided into smaller groups led by a TA (team adviser). Our TA was Michelle and she was awesome. The program included many activities. There were leadership lectures, medical lectures, Dr. Marfuggi was great with clinical rounds and his lectures, Casino night, the Pizza social (lol Pledge), Ropes Challenge Course, Washington trips, the Baltimore trip, National Library of Medicine, and the Walter Reed Museum of Health. On the first day we all met in our TA groups and everyone was quiet and shy. Michelle warned us that we would all be upset when we left, but no one believed her because most people thought others were not going to be friendly. But after a few days, we all knew each other really well and bonded nicely. Our team name was the “Fuzzy Duck Dippers.” We came up with an awesome cheer/ skit which we performed at the College Life Panel.

Thanks to everyone for sharing all your crazy jokes and cool games (dibby dibby dip, Egyptian Rat Screw, the triangle game, the animal game, the color game, etc. ) Everyone is unique and special in your own way and this was the experience of a lifetime. Hopefully, I can use this to become a better person.
