I live about ten paces from the eastern edge of DePaul University’s campus in Chicago. The university’s rec center, The Ray, is a terrific workout facility for students and locals. This month, with the return of students to campus, The Ray was giving away free campus planners for the new school year.
Ever the planner, I grabbed one for myself. What surprised me is how many awesome “quote of the week” entries there were throughout the planner. This will be part 1 of me posting five quotes from the DePaul campus planner.
