    Thanks for starting this linky! It really got me thinking about my memories and what my students might remember many years down the road. Getting new textbooks was always fun. I usually got used books in school, so I’d look at the names on the inside cover to see if I recognized anyone who previously had my book.

    I’m curious about the face paint! Want to share more? πŸ™‚

      Thank you Cheryl for participating!
      The face paint???? LOL! Initiation in Portugal’s colleges and universities is part of the “welcoming” strategies for new students. Usually they are harmless (like face painting) but sometimes can be a little tough to bear πŸ™‚
      The playful concept is that new 1st year students are worth nothing and the older ones need to teach them how to behave. When done right, it is a really nice way of getting everyone involved in the university life and it helps new students to meet new people and get their bearings. However, some universities sometimes take it too far and this causes first year students to be fearful of what will happen πŸ™
