Busy Weekend

Spring is a busy time on the Purdue campus and this past weekend set a good example. On Friday night, my honor fraternity, Phi Sigma Pi, held an initiation ceremony for our 12 new “brothers.” This organization is a national, co-ed honor fraternity that is a like a cross between a social fraternity/sorority, an honor society, and a service organization. Since we do not have a house, we held our ceremony in the Stewart Center on campus and then ventured to downtown Lafayette to welcome our new brothers with dinner at the Lafayette Brewing Company. This family restaurant has been around since 1993 and serves wonderful food in a lively atmosphere.

Since Friday wasn’t busy enough, I decided to join Boiler Blast on Saturday morning. This annual event brought together over 1,500 students to volunteer in the West Lafayette community. I had signed up with the CFS Student Council and we were lucky to meet Purdue’s President, Dr. France Cordova and First Gentleman, Chris Foster. After a few hours of yard work at a local house, we returned to the Memorial Mall for a free lunch!

In continuing the trend, Saturday night was also busy. I attended the Purdue Fashion Association’s Fashion Show held in the press box at Ross-Ade Stadium with a friend from the CFS Student Council. We enjoyed the energetic and exciting show from front row seats! This event showcased the hard work and dedication of CFS students studying Apparel Design and Technology, including fellow Ambassadors Ashley H. and Audrey R. In addition to the Fashion Show, at least two other large events were being held on campus, HTM Society’s Black Tie Dinner and Relay For Life. After such an exhausting start to the weekend, I decided to sleep in on Sunday to prepare myself for a long day of studying.

Six weeks until graduation,
