‘Twas the night before college, when all through H-Town
Everyone was psyched, knowing what was about to go down.
The backpacks were packed with pens, notebooks and other student fare,
In hopes that morning traffic would be kind and ‘twould be a short commute to get there.
The #UHBauer students were checking social media all snug in their beds,
While visions of #MakingAwesomeHappen danced in their heads.
And Shasta in his Cougar Red, and Sasha in her finest, too,
Were already slumbering, waiting to greet all of you.
When down in Melcher Hall, there arose such a clatter
All the students ran down to see what was the matter.
Away to the ticker, they flew in a flash
And pulled open the doors with that business student panache.
When what to their wondering eyes they saw,
But Dean Latha Ramchand, department chairs and all.
Full of experience, respect and fame,
They yelled “Bauer is Where Awesome Happens!” as Dean Ramchand called the departments by name.
“Now Marketing & Entrepreneurship, Management, Accounting, too.
On Finance and DISC, you know what to do!”
They sprung to their feet
Standing tall with pride.
As Dean Ramchand led them out
Taking the new semester in stride.
And we heard her say
As they walked out of sight,
“Best of luck for #Fall2016, and to all a good night.”
