Ice Breaker – School Days


Each week on The Stretched Blog, I ask an ice breaker question. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

(I’m always looking for Ice Breaker question ideas.  If you have an idea, send me an email at  If I use your question, I’ll give you credit and share your links.)

This week, I spent some time at Grove City College.  This is where I also spent four years of my life pursuing my mechanical engineering degree.  Today’s Ice Breaker question is inspired by my visit to my alma mater.

Question:  Where did you go last go to school?  Where did you first go to school?

My Answer:  Grove City College is one of my favorite places, but it’s not the last place I went for school.  I went to Penn State University (Great Valley Campus) for my MBA.  Not counting preschool, Lowell Elementary School in Wheaton, IL is the first place I went to school.  I spent my first three years of elementary school here (Kindergarten through 2nd Grade).
