As I’ve mentioned before, I’m living in a Mayfield next year. We had our Mayfield Orientation tonight, which consisted of ice-breaking, team building, and elections, not to mention delicious catered food.
This semester, I’ve had the opportunity to take Sociology 235, which focuses on Contemporary American Society. We’ve studied a variety of topics, ranging from the economic crisis to parenting in today’s society.
Yesterday was Easter, and because most of us will be leaving Vandy in a week or so, not many people went home for the holiday. That’s not to say we didn’t take a break from studying and spend it with loved ones, though.

Last Thursday night, AOII had our Last Bash party to say goodbye to the seniors (I realize I’ve blogged about two of the three parties we’ve had this semester which might give you guys the wrong impression, but I promise we’re about a lot more than that.
