As I mentioned in my last post, I went on a retreat called Leap. I can't say too much about it because I don't want to give away anything for those who might read this and go on the retreat in the future. However, I can say that I returned to campus last night feeling rejuvenated and filled with love for all the wonderful people in my life, both at home and at SMC. I now consider everyone who I went on the retreat with a part of my SMC family. Today I was greeted with so many hugs from the people I met over the weekend. Hugs are one of my favorite things so it was absolutely wonderful! In addition to all the hugs, many of us who went on the retreat (Leapers, as we like to call ourselves) got together to have dinner in Alliot. (Apparently we can't be apart for even a day!) There were so many of us that we had to push together a few tables so we could all fit!
Dinner with my Leapers was definitely exciting, but the rest of my day was wonderful as well. Before class (bright and early at 8:30), I headed over the Hoehl (the Admissions building) to meet an accepted student so he could shadow me for the day. I brought him to my classes and then over to Ross/Tarrant (the gym) to meet with the Associate Director of Athletics, Zaf Bludevich. I had never met Zaf before, but he was extremely nice and even showed us the ski equipment room.
After meeting with Zaf, a few of my friends and I had lunch with my shadow, and then I brought him back to Hoehl so he could have a tour. I hope he loved Saint Mike's as much as I loved showing him around!
In other news, you may know that tomorrow Ben & Jerry's is hosting Free Cone Day. My friend Alex and I went last year and we had so much fun, so we will definitely be going again this year! I can't wait. After all, who doesn't love free ice cream?!
Have a wonderful week and as always, thanks so much for reading my blog! If you have any questions feel free to email me or contact me via Twitter!
