Hi there, everyone!
I am sorry for the delay between updates, but I have been busy since I returned from Fall Break. Here are some highlights from the last three weeks on the Hill:
The weekend after Fall Break was Family Weekend, and my parents and twin brother came to visit Holy Cross. This visit was my family’s first visit during my time as a Holy Cross student, and I was finally able to show them my new home. After touring the Holy Cross campus, my family and I enjoyed the Fall Choir Concert, which featured several of my friends. Throughout the remainder of the weekend, we were entertained by other musical performances and treated to fall foods including one of my favorites, kettle corn.
Although fall brought colder temperatures to Holy Cross, it also added vibrant fall color to campus and the surrounding New England landscape. The trees on Linden Lane turned stunning shades of red and yellow which glistened in the sunlight of late afternoon. Not to be outdone, the hills surrounding campus rolled towards the horizon in shades of yellow, red, and orange. However, my favorite fall sight proved to be the red ivy covering Dinand Library and Fenwick Hall.
Additionally, several dining locations and students organizations have had fall themed food (pumpkin spiced lattes, pumpkin muffins, and apple cider all made welcome appearances), making fall at Holy Cross as delicious as it is beautiful.
The last few weeks have featured superlative performances by Holy Cross students in the aforementioned choir concert and the fall play, Cloud 9. Cloud 9 runs through this weekend, and anyone who happens to be in town (perhaps for the upcoming Open House) should plan to attend this riotously hilarious comedy.
Thanks for reading, folks. Hopefully, you will hear from me again much sooner next time.
Until then, take care, everyone.
