First Year: On October 8, right before our first CORE paper is due on the 11th, we will be having a No Core Allowed study break! Come to the Student Union anytime from 8-10 for snacks, time with your friends, and some fun puzzles and games! If you have any suggestions for events or other things you would like to see happen this year please feel free to email me at ACechony5033@scrippscollege.edu. I am looking forward to a great year with all of you ladies!
Sophomore: On October 1st, the entire sophomore class was invited to the first ever “Sophomore Dessert Mix and Mingle” at the Revelle House. Guests were seated by tables to encourage new friendships and to provide an atmosphere where it was acceptable to make introductions to fellow classmates that they may not have met. This was the joint effort of Jennie Xu, Sophomore Class Representative, and Marta Bean, SAS President, as part of a collaboration between the executive board and programming board of SAS. Thank you to President Lori Bettison-Varga, Claire Bridge, and all of the Malott Catering staff that helped make this event a success!
First and foremost, our Class of 2015 grad speaker search is underway! The first meeting of the grad speaker committee will be held Sunday, October 6th at noon in the student union. If you are passionate about finding the best grad speaker out there, please attend! This will not be a large time commitment, and your help would be very much appreciated! If you have any ideas or suggestions, feel free to email the Junior Class Rep, Mikayla Raymond, at email@example.com. Secondly, we have a very exciting panel discussion on the horizon. For all of you who are interested in all of the amazing fellowships and grants that Scripps has to offer, but are looking for more of student perspective, the Class of 2015 will be hosting a Fellowship Panel Friday, November 1st at 12. Be on the lookout for many more fun events to come later this semester! SAS and the Junior Class Representative look forward to helping make this year our greatest yet.
The senior co-representatives have already had their first event of the year, a very successful back-to-school event for the senior class. Currently, they are planning a senior cocktail hour at one of the restaurants in the village, and have started a fundraising campaign to help pay for the various traditional spring events, like champagne brunch and the senior class Vegas trip. They have also begun to set dates and plan their budget for events in the spring, since the end of the year has a tendency to get pretty busy for graduating seniors. They’re looking forward to spending a final year with their class, and hope to make it the best year at Scripps yet for the class of 2014.
