This Past Weekend

It would be hard to have improved on the weekend we just had.  Weatherwise we were in the low- to mid-70s, sunny, light breezes.  Perfect.  Some of our students hit the road for beach weekend, others stayed on campus.  I suspect some of them might have been watching the Masters to see a young man their age, Jordan Spieth, win the green jacket (and $1.8 mil) at the tender age of 21 – and dreaming of what they’d do with that money if they’d won it 🙂

There was an event on Saturday morning on campus.  It was something akin to a mashup of the Color Run and a festival.  In the pictures you see below students are celebrating Holi, the Hindu spring festival of colors, by throwing packets of colored powder on each other on Manchester Plaza (aka Mag Quad).  It looks like it was spectacularly fun.
