It’s been a while since I’ve written- but there’s been so much going on here. After getting back from Spring Break, I immediately got thrown back into school work. The weather was pretty dreary for a few days, but it got really nice, before turning cold again. Rhode Island weather never lasts long, so you have to enjoy (or put up with it) while you can.
Last week we had March Meltdown, which was just a bunch of fun welcome-back events to put everyone in a good mood. It was a Jersey Shore themed weekend (Bristol Shore.) We had the Spring Sports Pep Rally- Fist Pump Like a Champion, a trip to Dave & Busters in Providence (think of an arcade for adults), a Bongo Ball tournament- (combine American Gladiator, Nerf Guns, paintball, and capture the flag), and Last Hawk Standing- Are You Situation Enough? Which was a stand-up comedy competition for RWU students.
Saturday and Sunday, I spent my day at Accepted Student’s Days- which I love working. It’s so great seeing students who may be coming here in a few months and weird that I was in their shoes a year ago. A big crowd pleaser at these events are our famous chocolate fountains. It’s an effort keeping current students away from Global Heritage Hall on these days.
The Campus Entertainment Network is getting ready for one of their biggest events of the year- Spring Weekend. This year the concert is going to be The Fray. In addition to the concert, we have a block party, trip to a PawSox baseball game, and other fun events. The theme of the weekend is super secret and won’t be revealed to campus until the Monday of that week. Sunday night, CEN-ers spend their evening decorating campus and Roger to represent the theme. I can’t wait to deck out Roger, since this year’s theme really is a lot of fun.
Not as fun, but still important is doing classwork. I have several papers to write. Unfortunately, I didn’t make Student Advocate, but I’m applying to be a Presidential Ambassador- they’re the ones you see at events on campus wearing the Roger Williams blazers. Hopefully, I’ll have better luck with that group.
Got questions? Lemme know and I can hopefully answer them. Hope to hear from you (or see you) soon.
