A continuation of YOSYO - Fall Semester! You only senior year once… Week of Oct 29th: Penn-Princeton! The longest non-tradition Penn has ever held! Penn kids have long held up the “tradition” of taking busses up to Princeton for our “rivalry.” The awkward part is that Princeton doesn’t consider this a rivalry at all! In fact, they were on break during the game so no students were even there hahah. It was a ton of fun, though, and I’m glad I finally made it up my senior year.
Week of Nov 5th: Greek Conference! I’m part of an amazing Christian fellowship on campus called Greek InterVarsity. It’s specifically for sorority and fraternity members and has some of the most amazing people I’ve ever met. Through Greek IV, I’ve become closer with my own sisters in Chi Omega and have been able to meet so many more people in the Greek system that I never would have encountered before. It’s something I’ve valued so much during my time at Penn. This fall was another Annual Greek Conference up in the Poconos with other Greek IV chapters in the Northeast! Week of Nov. 12th: I didn’t leave campus, admittedly, but that’s because Thanksgiving was right around the corner…and it was CHISINO! I was so excited to be able to attend (and help work) Chisino’s 2nd Annual Chisino charity event for Make-A-Wish foundation (I was abroad last year when they started it). We were able to help buy a new computer for Make-A-Wish child, Ryan. Much better quality photos of the event here. Week of Nov. 19th: Thanksgiving with my cousins up in Rochester - the Lees! Some more here. Unfortunately, the last few weeks of a semester are always filled with cramming for finals and projects so there is never much time to escape campus. But I have to say, I did a pretty decent job of enjoying Philly and beyond last semester! More on the Spring Semester soon.
