Events on events on events

The end of the semester is rapidly approaching; in fact, as I write this, the vast majority my fellow Hanoverians are on their way home or have already arrived. I am calmly waiting until Friday morning to make my departure, since I want to wait until after watching The Hobbit to make my own journey…

It’s about time

My roommates and I have been ready for Christmas fun for probably over a month now. We have had several people tell us we had to wait until after Thanksgiving before we could really get into the Christmas spirit. We totally disagreed, but held back a little (in public, at least) until now. Thanksgiving is…

Christmas festivities

My suite could not possibly be filled with more Christmas cheer right now. December is officially here, and since exactly 12 a.m. Saturday we have been celebrating. We started with our advent calendars. In our suite, one of my roommates has two of them. One is a pop-up version where on each day you get…

As a member of the SAC (Student Activity Center)¬†Committee, Saturday, I found myself surrounded by roughly 500 pieces of sushi. This event marked the second time in two years that we have hosted a sushi night for the entire campus. I think it is likely that this will become an annual event, as it is…

Striking in Madison

Easter Part II

While I had my Easter visitors, we couldn’t just stay inside the whole time so we took off Easter morning. My sister accompanied me and some friends to brunch while my mom packed up their stuff and prepared for the rest of the day. We ate colored eggs in the Campus Center, got purple dye…

Not Passing Up a Good Deal

Being a student at Hanover College has many perks, and I talk about them all the time. But it seems that in all my blogging, I have skipped right over a perk that saves my broke college self a couple dollars every now and then. Each student at Hanover gets a student ID card¬†which acts…

A Taste of Ireland in downtown Madison

Friday night, I was lucky enough to experience the Taste of Ireland in downtown Madison, Ind. Several of the more popular restaurants decided to prepare an authentic Irish dish, and by buying a ticket earlier in the week, I was able to sample each of the dishes. For only $20 I got to experience several…
