It’s All About The Weekend!

Hey Everyone!

I wanted to spend some time in this post talking about a few things I did this past weekend, and what to expect on Muskingum’s campus this weekend.

For starters, I have been very stressed lately about a lot of different things and nothing was bringing me out of the “depressed” state I was in–not even ice cream which is a HUGE shocker! Saturday night, my best friend and I started off the evening going on a night-time run;this is a great way to relieve stress, and clear your head. I recommend to anyone that likes to run to try this out when you’re feeling stressed, or if you don’t like running, try taking a walk. Any time where you can just be with your thoughts, while getting your blood pumping is a great way to push any negative thoughts out of your head.

After the run, MPB (Muskingum Programming Board) was putting on their annual event, “Banana Extravaganza.” This is a banana split eating contest where teams of 4 compete to see who can eat their plates the quickest. The catch? You must stay on your knees and you cannot use your hands! If you aren’t brave enough to participate in the contest, it is always a lot of fun to watch the event, and receive the free ice cream available afterwards. My best friend and some of her sorority sisters participated in the contest and won, so it was fun to watch them get covered in ice cream, while I stayed clean from the sidelines. 🙂
Sunday, involved a donut date to Tim Horton’s with again, my best friend (if you can’t tell we are pretty inseparable) and a nice walk around the reservoir. This is a place that is about 5 minutes from campus (a nice park), that is absolutely beautiful, especially in the fall. It was nice to just be out in the fresh air, and take in all the beautiful sights around us. I always have found nature to be so peaceful because it is so much bigger than you and its really easy to let it envelop you and help you find a sense of security in your surroundings.

This weekend on campus, however, is bringing lots of excitement for all students—Homecoming. The weekend will start off on Friday night with our annual talent show called, Varsity Revue. Students from all around the campus perform, as well as the sororities/fraternities preparing either skits or dances–sometimes both! Saturday, will be filled with school spirit as there will be many tailgates with free food to get fired up for the home game at 1 p.m. Keep your fingers crossed for a Muskie Win against Otterbein! The night concludes with a dance in the gym which will be celebrated Vintage 1837 style–it will be neat to see how the gym is decorated for this.

This is always a weekend where there are a lot of students, parents and alumni on campus so it definitely brings forth a lot of excitement for everyone. Muskingum is definitely its own community, and each and every one of you are more than welcome to join the family!

Have a great weekend, and enjoy the pictures I have attached!
