Miniature Golf

Yesterday, the Alternative Housing Residence Life Team hosted an event at Adventure Cove miniature golf in Wilmington. The event was free to everyone that lived in the College Commons, Campus Village, Fife Hall, or college owned Greek housing. There was also free pizza available. I sometimes hear students complain that there is nothing to do on the weekends, but these are the students that do not take advantage of all of the programming we offer, both on weekends and through the week. Putt Putt is one of my favorite things to do in town because I have always been a golfer and I love being able to play putt putt with anyone, regardless of skill level (real golf you sort of have to know what you’re doing and it takes a lot longer to play). Next month I’m hoping to host multiple programs, providing I have the time. This is the point in the semester where the work begins to get difficult, as well as my honors seminar class starting tomorrow and my big paper being due in less than a month now. There is always time for fun (and sleep, of course, which I refuse to sacrifice), but studies always come first.

Burrito!

Burrito!

Contributed by: Brad Fuller

As you may or may not know, I am a community advisor in the College Commons apartments, which is very similar to a Resident Assistant (RA) in the residence halls. One of our job duties is to host programs for our residents as a way of community building and as a great way to get people involved. This past Sunday, I hosted a program at my apartment where I cooked burritos and made everything from scratch (except for the tortillas…). Cooking for people may be one of my favorite things to do, so I chose to do it for my program. Not as many of my residents showed up as I would have liked, but I’m hoping for a better turn out next time. I could probably also improve my advertising techniques, as this is difficult to do in an apartment-style living arrangement. Next month, I am planning on cooking a vegan dish that is a little more exotic than simple burritos (not to discredit burritos at all, since they are my favorite food), but my goal will be to get my residents to try some foods that they have never tried before.
