Next week students from nearby Saint Joseph’s College return to campus for another year. In fact, some student-athletes have already returned for fall camps.

For an entire group of students, this will be their first time away from home as they start another chapter of their education. We welcome them and their families to Rensselaer!

It will be bittersweet to see some of the students, knowing that they will be graduating soon. We have gotten to know a couple very well: Seniors Allyson and Josie are our housekeepers during the school year, and we don’t know what we would do without them!

Welcome, Pumas!

Our returning German guests

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

Recently we welcomed back to The White House on Park Avenue Bed & Breakfast a German couple, had visited us for two weeks last year, and returned this summer!

Also checking in last weekend for an overnight stay was a doctor and his wife from Iowa. She was born in Germany, and conversation around the breakfast table the next morning was exciting. As much as I tried to follow along, my German language skills are very sub-par – I could only make out a few words here and there. But it was fascinating to watch the guests from different parts of the world interact in Rensselaer, Indiana.
