I will start off with some other things that make Wooster unique:

  • Senior I.S. I believe the Wooster independent study is ranked number two in the United States for senior projects. During the whole year, seniors work with a faculty member to produce a massive high quality paper.
  • At Wooster, you are an individual, not a number. Everyone counts. Some examples: Wooster students are highly encouraged to develop good personal relationships with their professors. If you have a problem of any kind and ask for help, it will be addressed. If you send the dean of students an email, you will get a personal reply. The faculty confers with the student body about every major decision they make. The president makes an effort to get to know all the different student groups and is very open to feedback.

From now on, I will try to integrated the uniqueness of Wooster in my blogs without explicitly mentioning it because I do understand it gets old.

Now some other Wooster news:

The Ethnic Fair performance of the Dutch booth was worthy enough for an appearance on the front page of the Daily Record, the local newspaper. I will post evidence of this later.

Friday, there will be a campus wide I.S showcase. Seniors will be bragging about their projects and students from lower classes can come up with good ideas for their I.S.s (plural of I.S.).

This past Sunday, we had the first training session for next year’s resident assistants. Besides signing our contracts, we got to know each other a little better and we did some initial thinking about being a RA.

Enough writing for nowl. It is time to post some pictures again.

To summarize why we won the best booth: we had the winning snacks, the winning outfits, the winning decoration, and the winning mentality.
