Sorry I have not been keeping up with the blog. Sophomore year got a little ahead of me. But as I said in one of my previous posts: the lack of entries is not because there isn’t enough to do, but because there is just so much going on! This month especially has been busy not only with class work, but also campus wide events.
Once spring starts to actually show its face on campus, clubs schedule events for almost every weekend. This weekend happened to be both Battle of the Bands and the biannual Farmers Market sponsored by the Eco-Action club. Unfortunately, it was raining for the Battle of the Bands event on Saturday, but everyone still had a great time and there was a fairly decent crowd! The usually more than a handful of bands compete in this contest to see who will open for the Spring Concert during the last week of school before finals. It’s always a ton of fun to see all the different bands and you’ll always recognize someone on stage even if you don’t know them personally. A bunch of seniors from band compete every year in Battle of the Bands, so a good amount of people from marching band all went to watch the seniors play. The crowd generally embraced the rain and as always it turned out to be a very fun event to prelude Spring Weekend.
The Farmers Market was also a nice Sunday break from homework. Eco-Action was able to get stands for preserves, coffee, alpaca products, granola, and flowers. The local farmers are always so nice and so far I have bought at least one thing from each Farmers Market. This semester I ended up getting three different types of organic granola (they are SO good). Last year the alpaca farm actually brought the alpacas with them to hang out on Kimball Quad, however this year the alpacas had just been shaved and so they were not able to make the trip out to Worcester. Here is a picture of the alpacas from last year, though!
So much is happening on the Hill this month and next month including academic conferences on Wednesday and the concert band concert on Sunday, so I will be staying more on top of blogging as the semester comes to a close.
Thanks and have a great day!
