American Authors are enjoying the rage of this current song.  Go Big or Go Home is a worthy entry in the Urban Dictionary and epitomizes for me the spark and enthusiasm I witnessed last week.  For the fourth summer, I was graced to serve with a number of fabulous faculty as we delivered a Business Management Institute, sponsored by the Western Association of College and University Business Officers.  The UC-Santa Barbara campus is always a beautiful backdrop to a great week of learning.  I think, this was one of the best sessions.
