Already October?

Wow! It seems like yesterday I was out on Carnegie Lawn during the Ultimate Ice-Breaker for Fall Orientation…

Now, we are one week away from Mid-Term Break. It’s amazing how easy it is to get wrapped with all the fun the College has to offer and simply lose track of time. We have already experienced some of Elmira College’s wonderful historic traditions. Mountain Day has come and gone where Dr. Meier nearly won the “Ya-Gotta Regatta” raft race across the puddle with his teammates. The College’s homecoming, Octogan Fair, attracted hundreds of people to campus with its Wild Wild-West theme. And tomorrow is the third segment of Elmira College’s nationally recognized Orientation trilogy, Parents’ Weekend, another exciting fun-filled on-campus event.

Disco Bowling, Parent-Student Ultimate Frisbee Matches, Kickball, Bocce Ball, Kan Jam, and Mini Golf are just a glimpse of the activities available. The Soaring Eagles Varsity and JV teams will be in action and the coveted Dinner Dance will be held for students and their families to attend on Saturday night.

The academic year has just begun but certainly has given students something to talk about with their friends and family as they head home for Mid-Term Break.
