On Monday, September 14th, MSSM had a "Penguin Day". Students slept late, had breakfast in the dorm, and were able to relax. These days usually happen once a semester in the middle to give students a day off. Some take the time to catch up, others simply do nothing. There are late afternoon events and activities, but no classes in the morning.
MSSM Seniors Lydian, Conner, and Martin spent this past Saturday afternoon (September 12) on a bicycle tour of the former Loring Air Force Base. While there they visited MSSM's first dorm buildings, learned about Loring's very important role in the Cold War, checked out nose-dock and arch hangers, saw the site of two "Phish" concerts, and watched "land-boats" racing down the former main runway. (Reports that they cycled headlong down the parallel taxiway and then had a snack stop on the ramp by the former alert facility can be neither confirmed nor denied.)
Check out the first of many Fireside Chats as we bring the MSSM experience directly to you in your home. Tune in every M-W-F for a new episode.
During Move In weekend, students and faculty enjoyed a great cycling ride throughout the Limestone area. The weather was perfect. They managed to get as close to Canada as one can right now. Here are Isaac, Elise, Connor and Dr. Barans at the Canadian border post. Thanks to our other faculty member, Mr. Tasker, for taking the photo.
The first waddle of penguins arrived today including new students and residential assistants. It was so great seeing all the smiling faces and how the dorm came back to life. We hope all the penguins can be together soon.
