The Monday Memo: 3/12/2012


March 12, 2012                                                                                          DPT Class of 2014


Welcome Back!


Whether you traveled to Scotland or stayed here in the ‘Burgh, hopefully everyone made the most of their Spring Break 2012 by seeing family, friends and spending maximal time outdoors. We return with just seven weeks remaining in our first year of the DPT program. Can you believe it? It’s both exciting and a little intimidating! If you’re not feeling fully recharged, use these motivational quotes and videos to get you through the rest of the semester (or inspire you to win your NCAA Brackets).


“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit” – Aristotle


“I am a champion – the greatest speech ever” – YouTube


How Bad Do You Want It? (Success) – YouTube


“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.”

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
