The freshman retreat was held on campus Tuesday after school. The freshman class was divided into small groups for breakout sessions led by seniors, who guided discussions and bonding activities. Senior Isabelle Fleming has helped run the freshman retreat for two years and enjoys welcoming the new classes.

“It’s kind of awe-inspiring,” Fleming said, “I get to see who’s going to carry on the next generation of STA.”

For the remainder of the evening, students participated in activities like relay races around Donnelly and “Just Dance” in the Commons. Freshman Sabrina Shugart felt at ease with the girls she grew to know over the evening.

“The people in my group make me feel comfortable,” Shugart said. “I’m just kind of myself.”

Howdy! I’m glad to see you found my staff bio page. I’m Amy Schaffer, co-photo editor and designer. As a #darticated junior who spends most of her free time in the pub room, you’ll rarely see me in the cafeteria during lunch. However, you’ve probably already caught me dancing spastically to Shawn Mendes in the hallways or walking a bit more quickly through the quad than everyone else. If that doesn’t ring a bell, you’ve most likely seen me ugly crying in the bathroom due to the Avengers: Infinity War ending. (If you know, you know.) Some other random “Schaf” trivia for you: I empathize deeply with the “screaming-old-lady-banging-on-a-bus-window” Vine, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013) is the best movie ever made and VSCO filters should never be used at an intensity more than +7.5. If you relate to any of these things, let’s chat. If you don’t, that’s okay, my door is open anyways.
