This post is gonna have lots of pics because these past 2 weeks have been jam packed with lots of fun stuff so get PUMPED. So as Brynne said, spring term is in full swing and let me tell you it is an amazing time here at W&L. We’ve got some team members studying abroad in wonderful locations all around the globe, and we’ve got the rest of the team here in good ole Lex Vegas. After spring break, one of the first major events was Derby Days which is a philanthropy event for Sigma Chi. While the volleyball team is not allowed to compete in football (shoutout to Elly Cosgrove for her freshman year concussion that inspired this rule), cheering our sororities on was still a blast!
A lot of us have had formals during this spring term as well which have been super super fun!
I should probably talk about my class also just so that my mom knows that I am in fact studying in addition to all this fun we’ve been having here! So I am in a politics class where we read case studies and then write reviews on them. For my final paper I am going to write about Microfinance! Who wouldn’t be excited about Microfinance am I right people? Also as Brynne mentioned, we have lifts, open gyms, and conditioning during spring term. Last week, we had a surprise visit from volleyball alumni, athletic superstar, THE Kenzie Shand! We also had two lovely running workouts on the track to build that essential cardiovascular endurance and got surprised with a water balloon fight from the captains!
This past weekend was filled with lots of darties (that means day parties for all of you parents out there) including KA’s “Old South.” We dress up like old-timey women of the 1800s and I have to say I wish these dresses never went out of style because they are just adorable! The volleyballers also just learned a thrilling new game from the one and only Ashleigh (Cash) Meade that is only slightly dangerous.
All in all, spring term has been such a fun time and I think we are all in denial about leaving Lex so soon! I know all the freshies had an amazing first year and are so excited for the memories we will make during the rest of our time here!
