Hello, all! I am now in my second week of classes following Fall Break, so I figured I’d provide a brief update on some happenings on the Hill.
This past weekend was Family Weekend at Holy Cross! Last year, my family members were unable to attend the festivities. This year, however, my dad was able to make the trip from Rochester. Seeing as I chose not to visit home over the break, it was great being able to catch up with him on how things have been going back in New York.
My dad and I went out to a local restaurant, Wicked Wing Co., located about ten minutes from campus. Fortunately for us, the Celtics game was being shown on the TVs there, and we actually ended up staying at the restaurant for the entire game. The food was delicious, and it’s always a pleasure to get off campus and see what Worcester has to offer.
Although Family Weekend consisted of many exciting events on campus, the main attraction was undoubtedly Holy Cross Football’s matchup with the Colgate University Raiders on Saturday morning. I spent much of the morning tailgating with my friends and their parents, before watching the first half of the Crusaders’ resounding 31-10 victory over Colgate. It’s always a great atmosphere in Fitton Field, and this past weekend was no exception.
Overall, it was a super fun weekend. This coming weekend, however, may be even better, seeing as I’m planning on attending a Celtics game with my roommate and some friends. Halloween is also coming up this week, though I must admit that I am still in need of costume ideas.
That’s all for this week’s post! I’m busy as ever, so be sure to check back soon for more updates. I’m sure I’ll have plenty to provide. Peace!
