The first weekend back on campus was a great one! There were plenty of activities to be involved in, and being able to hang out and relax with friends was a nice pause after the first busy school week back! Friday‘s highlight was the Men’s Hockey game against Harvard. Union students poured into the stands to support our team, and watch the intense game between the two teams. The teams ended up tying the game 3 to 3.
On Saturday there was another Men’s hockey game, and this time we were facing Dartmouth. We hadn’t won a home game against Dartmouth since January 5th, 2007! The highlight of this game was that it was Whiteout Night. This means that the first 2,000 fans to arrive received a free white t-shirt to cheer on our team. And the cheering must have worked because we won 7 to 1!
Another highlight of Saturday night was that it was ‘Casino Night’ a.k.a. A fantasy casino sponsored by UProgram was set up in Old Chapel! It ended up being a lot of fun, and in the end, students could ‘buy’ raffle tickets depending on how many chips they had, and enter their names in to win lots of cool prizes (like a Nikon Coolpix Camera!)
All in all, it was a pretty great weekend and a nice break from classes.
And now…. back to work!
