Spring at Goucher: When will it be here?

"Raindrops cover a window overlooking the back of Welsh Hall at Goucher College Tuesday, April 5, 2011."

I woke up at 5 A.M. this morning to the sound of rain and wind slamming against my window. So, for some reason I felt like taking this photograph later on in the day.

It’s nothing special, but I haven’t been able to shoot much else over the past week. I’ve been focusing all of my time on my Senior thesis, tennis, and plans for life after Goucher.

I wish that the Spring weather would finally get here for good. It would make all those endeavors a lot more pleasant. Plus, I’m sick of aimlessly posting about rain.

Valentine’s Day 2011: Friends, The Q, and Red Hot Blue

I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day, but there’s been lots of student spirit for the holiday at Goucher through yesterday and today.

The Junior class is raising money by running around campus delivering bags of Hershey’s Kisses to people. The Ultimate Frisbee team was selling chocolate covered strawberries and cookies in the library last night. And Red Hot Blue, Goucher’s Acapella group, surprised students in their rooms yesterday with singing candy gram performances.

In this first video, you’ll find them in The Quindecim office serenading our Editorial Board with Beyoncé’s “Halo” before our weekly meeting.

In the second one, you can see them surprising our friend Andrea in our apartment with Mariah Carey’s “Always Be My Baby.”

Fantastic singing and a beautifully mild Monday has made for a great start to the week!
