Family Weekend 2017

A day in the life of a student during Family Weekend.
Family Weekend 2017
It’s something I look forward to every year: Family Weekend. The weekend where I get to see everyone I hold near and dear -- my mom, my sisters and, of course, my dog. On Friday night, after multiple laps of walking my energetic Yorkie (Cooper), we gathered in my apartment to sit back, relax and watch some movies. We saw "Sing" and "Moana" for the first time while going through two bags of popcorn. Saturday, we spent the day on campus stopping by some of the events the University hosted for Family Weekend. After enjoying some brunch, we went out on the Dionne Green which was packed with many different visiting families and students. Together we watched the Dance Team perform, walked through the Community Fair on the Royal Way, listened to the Octaves and Royal Harmony perform, cheered on the Urban Beats Crew as they danced on the Dionne Green and, finally, played some Bingo to end the day (sadly, we didn't anything).

Family Weekend means so much to my family and me. Having them visit my second home where I learn and live is an opportunity each year. As a senior, this Family Weekend made me look back and realize how much The University of Scranton means to me and how it has helped me grow and progress, not only as a student but as a person who is ready for the world.
