I know that I have not blogged in a while, it got to be a crazy semester but I am back and ready to share my life with you all for the spring semester! This is going to be a crazy semester for me, I am taking some tough courses but the good news is that by my senior year I will have only electives left! One class that I am excited about is Digital Photo! I have always been interested in photography so I am pumped to take this class.
Along with school work I have my two sports coming up, Volleyball and Tennis. Our first Home Volleyball match is Sunday Feb 2nd so come to the gym to support us! Tennis does not start until March so keep your eyes and ears open for my announcement about those games.
SGA has some really fun and new events coming up this semester, the first being TIE DYE NIGHT on January 19th in the Pub/BCR. First 100 students get a free T-shirt to tie dye. Albertus Got Talent is one of the events that I plan and it's going to be the best year yet! Jason Lavassour will be the MC for the show along with him playing some of his music for the crowd.
I am also pleased to announced that I am on the NACA Committee again for the 2013 conference in Hartford! I applied to be school swap coordinator but I was asked to be the student rep for Ed Session reviews so that's exciting!
Well that's all the news I have for now, talk to you all soon!

If you weren't at Fell Fest yesterday then you missed out on a great day. Along with men’s soccer, women’s soccer and women’s tennis, there were food trucks, a dunk tank, novelties and other fun activities. Fall Fest, is one of the biggest events that is put on during the school year and it gives students a chance to have a great time with their family and friends. This event is also a great Alumni event, a lot of alumni come back for this event to cheer on the sports teams, catch up with old friends and just have a great time! Congrats to the men’s soccer team and the women’s tennis team for winning their games/ matches. Despite a tough loss to the women’s soccer team, each team honored their seniors; it was senior day for each team. A cool new feature this year to Fall Fest was the dunk tank sponsored by the SAA Club. Students were able to purchase throws to dunk professors, directors and other faculty and staff. Overall it was a fun day for everyone and I hope to see even more people at Fall Fest next year!

Who’s excited for Fall Fest? It’s just a week away! Both men’s and women’s soccer will be playing Emmanuel College. In addition to the soccer games, there will be novelties such as water bottles, keychain and magnets. Not to mention all day students get a free t-shirt when checking in! There will be lots of options for food as well. Chartwells will have picnic style food and there will be food trucks as well as popcorn, cotton candy and snow cones. Fall Fest is a great time to be with friends and family and it’s one of the biggest events that the school puts on every year. If you are 21, you can enjoy the beer tent as well. Come to the athletics field on Saturday October 20, 2012 for a day of fun!
There were a total of 24 games including a raffle. The first 20 games, students were able to win different gift cards and cash amounts. After the first 10 games, there was an intermission for people to get free pizza and the winners of the raffle got $10 and a free non-alcoholic drink from the pub. After the next 10 games it was time for the final round. During the last four games we gave away large prizes. The prizes were an iHome, a Blu Ray DVD player with two DVDs, a Kindle Fire and the grand prize was a 22” TV. Students were very excited to win these prizes and the event was a huge success!
Coming up this week, Saturday September 15 in the pub will be the first Saturday Event which is a video game tournament! Some fun things about these events are that they are late at night as well as being on the weekends when there isn’t much to do! When you come to a late night event there is ALWAYS free food and when you come to your first Albertus@Night Event you get a free shirt!!! You might have already got one or seen people wearing the green shirts around campus! So if you are ever bored on the weekends you know that Albertus@Night will be going on or a Saturday Event down in the Pub in the Campus Center. Keep your eyes and ears open for more flyers for the upcoming events!
