a philanthropic weekend

This was a weekend in which it seemed every organization held its annual philanthropy. There was a 5k run on Saturday, the conclusion to Sigma Chi's Derby Days, Beta Theta Pi's tug of war, Phi Sigma Kappa's benefit concert, Relay for Life, and the Multicultural Greek Council cook off. That mean this weekend was absolutely insane, music blasting from every field, people running everywhere. It was also a day with amazing weather, and everyone turned out to catch some rays on various quads and lawns. 

A lot of cultural events also took place this weekend: India Day, Japan Day, and Asian/Pacific Asian Heritage Month opening. Lots of good food, performances, music, and inspirational speakers at all of them. Like me to elaborate on any one of them?

But one of my favorite days was today, good ole Sunday. Usually people try to cram the work that they've been putting off all weekend in, but many people were soaking in the fineee spring weather on the Lawn, listening to a jazz band play. It was Jazz on the Lawn day. This was seriously the perfect day in terms of weather. Warm in the sun, cool breezes in the shade, add a blanket and snacks on the Lawn, some jazz music, and you've pretty much got a perfect day. MmmMM, life is good. =D

woe for SIS...

aka the Student Information System that's replaced our old student system. I've been struggling with it for an hour now and thoroughly dislike it. Listening to all my fellow students, I don't seem to be alone in my dislike. My biggest problem is that it bounces me from login page to home page and back again without ever letting me login to the system. And my class register time is tomorrow, so I *need* to be able to be in the system. Ah great. I'll get up earlier tomorrow to try on Grounds, hopefully that works, if not, I'll be tearing my hair out in the computer lab.
