It seems to be that spring has sprung here on campus! Purple and gold flowers are beginning to pop up all around. I’m writing this as I lay in the grass overlooking the puddle on this beautiful 78-degree day! I don’t think there was a single person indoors yesterday as it was also sunny, in the 70’s, and just plain gorgeous. Everywhere you looked, there were groups of people laying in the grass, listening to music, playing Frisbee, setting up volleyball nets to play with, and of course Kan Jam.
This past week was time again for our semi-annual Theme Dinner! This was one of the best Theme Dinner’s I’ve experienced in my three years here. This term’s dinner was inspired by the Asian culture and featured food from a variety of Asian countries. There were fun lanterns and dragons galore, decorated tables to eat on the floor, stage featuring our Martial Arts club, and stations where you could have your name written in Japanese. There were so many food options! Throughout the entire Dining Hall there were different soups, a sushi bar courtesy of Wegmans, green tea or ginger and mandarin orange ice cream, green tea, fortune cookies, and dishes from different countries like the Philippines and Korea. Everything was delicious! The bamboo plates, silverware, and chopsticks were cute to use as well. It was nice to see how many of our international students got involved and were proud to share with us a part of their culture and customs. Here are some pictures of the event!
