I like the snow, I do. I like the cheerful attitudes of my SMC family and I love how absolutely gorgeous our campus looks with it. However, I, Alex Byrne, am iceophobic. Aka... I hate ice and slipping and all that stuff that comes with it. Thank goodness Saint Mike's is so great about cleaning paths and making sure all the students are safe on their way to class, dorm rooms, and meals :)
However, what's great about SMC is that everyone realizes you are stressed. So, the college tries to do as much as possible to ease that stress. Like on Friday, there will be free 15 minute massages being offered in Alliot (I will so so be there!!)
Saint Mike's Student Association was amazing enough to set up two great events for students to attend. On Friday, we all got our inner kids out and went to Pizza Putt. For those of you not familiar with it (believe me, I had no clue what it was until someone from Vermont told me about it ;) it is like Chuck E Cheese, but with laser tag, mini golf, and so many amazing games.
So, around 8:45, a whole group of my friends headed into one of the Saint Mike's Vans and headed out to Pizza Putt. After receiving a $20 arcade card, free food (pizza, wings, chips, you name it, we had it), and free mini golf and laser tag, I was ready to go!!
Oh Kayley... she wanted this yellow crayon eraser, worth 35 tickets, so badly that of course, I gave her 5 of my tickets so she could get it :)
Aww, Taylor, Kayley, and Erin!! (Love this pic)
Overall, it was such a great night of fun and friends :)
Saturday though the SA brought... NICK CANNON HERE!!!!!!
So, my friends, Kayley, Taylor, Marci, Megan, the two Mary's, Katie, and myself, headed over to Ross to see the opening acts of alumni Kevin Anglin '08 and Pastor Case. They were both so funny and really got us laughing!!
So... you're probably wondering how Nick Cannon was, right?
Umm... HE WAS AMAZING!!
My friends and I couldn't stop smiling and laughing throughout his comedy act. Kudos to Saint Mike's for bringing a great performer to make us laugh so much :)
This weekend, I'm really excited to go to the SMC VITA Snowflake Semi formal!! I'm taking my dance loving friend, Kayley, with me, and I hope it will be a great time- definitely expect some pics :)
The LAST KNIGHT CHAT OF THE YEAR FOR PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS will be on December 9th at 7:30pm. I will be there, along with some of my awesome fellow bloggers, so stop by and have any of your questions answered :)
Until next time, I send you my best wishes,
