Haven’t made a post in a while, but that doesn’t mean that there hasn’t been a lot more activity happening on the hill!
After having a relaxing October break back home, it was time to hit the books and get to the heart of first semester. By the end of October, it was time for Family Weekend. Last year during this time, we had a blizzard. This time, we were getting ready for a hurricane! Luckily, Hurricane Sandy did not disturb our Halloween plans as students were dressed up, eating candy, and going to the annual Healy Haunted House the weekend before All Hallow’s Eve.
Since my family was not able to make the trip across the US for the weekend, I was so thankful to enjoy some great food and family time by spending it with the families of various friends of mine. The College Choir’s concert was a great success on Friday night. After a great tailgate before a Saturday football game, I was lucky enough to be invited to Worcester’s The Sole Proprietor with one of my friends, her parents, and another of our friends. And let me just say this…the food is excellent! I wish I had some more of it right about now!
Hurricane Sandy gave us a three day week since we were locked in our dorms for that Monday and Tuesday, but the campus was barely affected, which was a blessing.
Three of my friends from Holy Cross went along to Boston with me to visit one of my friends from home that goes to school in the city. It was so great to have friends from both my home life and college life meet each other in one of my favorite cities in the world! It didn’t hurt that Holy Cross offers free shuttles to Boston during the weekends!
This past weekend, I was asked to help out with the Open House. I spoke with two other students about being a college student in Worcester. It felt great to have a hand in informing perspective students about the college.
While intramural soccer has been the extent of my Holy Cross athleticism, I’ve been a big athletic supporter this year. On top of a few major football games that draw big crowds of Crusaders, I’ve recently been to a hockey game and attended a basketball game tonight! Both were successes!
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and I’m planning on spending it with a friend who lives in New Jersey. After the break, I have to prepare for the end of the semester workload as my last tests, papers, and assessments start to happen. I’ll let you know how it goes!
