Fall So Far

It’s hard to believe we are already over halfway through the semester. Time flies when you’re having fun and working hard. Here are some highlights of the past few months:

–       Attending the Robert Reich Lecture: Students, faculty, and community members had the opportunity to attend a talk with the former US Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich. He gave a fascinating talk about the future of the US economy and labor market. His quick wit and sense of humor put a positive spin on this serious topic.

–       Greek Week: As a member of a sorority on campus, I participated in this semester’s Greek Week, a week-long set of events designed to foster community and pride among the 7 fraternities and sororities on campus. Highlights included a community service day, Greek Olympics including chariot races and sumo wrestling, and attending the Logger football game together.

–       RDG: Repertory Dance Group is truly a force of nature. Every semester over 200 students participate in around 20 student-choreographed dances and perform for an audience of over 800 students, parents, and supporters.  Even complete newbies to dancing (like me) are welcomed enthusiastically. This year I am in two dances and preparing for the big performances (Nov 9th and 10th) has certainly been keeping me on my toes (literally).

–       Political Activism: Puget Sound is ready for an election! Various clubs on campus have hosted debate-viewing parties with large turnouts. One student even organized a voter registration campaign to make sure that everyone was ready for November 6th.  It’s been fun to talk with my friends about their views and opinions in these weeks leading up to the elections.

That’s all for now! Thanks for reading.
