Fall Fun Around Curry
BY NICOLE BEAL // OCT. 12, 2012 //
Even though the weather is getting colder, there’s still plenty happening on and around the Curry campus.
With the leaves currently changing color, and weather not too cold, it’s the perfect time to go hiking. The Blue Hills Hiking Trail is about a five- to 10-minute walk from campus. It is a beautiful walking trail that brings you through the hills and woods of Milton, as well as a few other cities around here. There’s also a chair lift there that will take you to the top of the hill, where a weather observatory is located.
So, whether you want to hike for exercise or to just admire the beautiful scenery, Blue Hills is a good place to visit if you have the time.
I always see commuters going home after their classes are over, but a number of commuters are looking to stick around on campus.
The new Commuter Club is a group that looks to build community, friendships and tackle some issues on campus specific to them. The next meeting is Tuesday, Oct. 16 in the Student Center’s Gray Meeting Room (2nd floor) at 5 p.m. It’s a good opportunity for commuters to meet people in similar situations and discuss some issues that anyone might be having.
If you like dancing and want to learn something new, you’ll enjoy what Curry is serving up this fall. The World Dance Master Class series is different forms of dance, from belly dancing to classical ballet. People who are experts in those types of dance will come in and teach you.
On Thursday, Oct. 25 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m., classical ballet specialist Anna Myer will be at the ARC’s dance studio on the campus’ south side. Myer has her own dance group and will share her dancing knowledge with Curry students.
Future guests this semester include dancers who will perform Cambodian classical dances, Indian classical dances, and West African dances. You think you have moves…come check these folks out!
There are plenty of things to do on (and off) Curry’s campus; it’s just a matter of taking advantage of what’s available.
