It's the beginning of a new year here at St. Mike's and I want to say welcome to the Class of 2014 and any transfers that are just starting out! I hope you enjoyed orientation (You probably saw me around with the flip cam.) and are enjoying the lack of whistles that is haunting the campus right now!
Like everyone else, I have moved into my new home, a four-person suite in Pontigny. I am living with my good friend, Natalie, and two international students named Dain (pronounced Tie-Anne) and Nikoro. Dain is from Korea and Nikoro is from Japan. They are both so nice and I can't wait to get to know them better.
So, I tried to make a video of the suite, but I am having trouble uploading so pictures are the next best thing! Here it goes!
When I'm not at Walmart, I have been hanging out with my friends that live upstairs, or Cantebury, or Joyce 3rd where my friend is an RA, or Lyons 1st where my other friend is an RA. It's fun! I feel like such a social butterfly. I also attended a TON of the Orientation events to take video so all of you can see what Orientation is really like! Just like last year, the hypnotist was ABSOLUTELY hilarious and people did some hilarious things, but I won't give away the details because that will ruin it for your orientation!! I know many students enjoyed the dance on Friday night including myself and my other friends who had nothing better to do with our evening!
Overall, I think it was another great orientation and think the freshman are now a little more comfortable here at St. Mike's. Classes start tomorrow and I can't believe. I promise to update soon with how my classes are going, the new info for the ski team, and all things SMC!
