Things Students "Like" About SMC

From a few anonymous sources, I've gathered a list of various different things that students like about SMC! *(These are not actual Facebook comments/statuses...just made to look like it)








For those of you unfamiliar with the infamous "cup drop" and "Alliot crush," Gabbi did posts on these not too long ago- here and here!

Sophomore Housing!

Hey guys!

It's been a crazy week here at SMC. It seems like I'm always in class or running to a meeting about housing & classes for next year! Tuesday I had a meeting with my advisor to finalize my first choice classes before registering on April 11th...I'm hoping to take 1st Semester Italian, Investigative Reporting, Photojournalism, and Ethics! Then, today was the housing lottery for most of the freshmen...

So, the stress of housing is officially over! My friend Clare and I got in line today at 6:10 to start the process, she had lottery #1124 and I had #1440, so we chose the better number, of course! By 6:30 we were walking upstairs in Alliot to point to the room we wanted, and we decided on Alumni 301!! So excited, AND we got SO lucky because a bunch of our friends got the rooms all around us on the 3rd floor! Here's a picture of Alumni...

...and a virtual tour of Alumni!

Alumni hall is a sophomore dorm on main campus, and the best part is its location! It's right in the freshman quad, behind Lyons and across from Ryan...perfect walking distance from Alliot, the gym, the library...well, basically everything!

As sophomores, we had a lot of great options to choose from on main campus and up on north campus. On main campus we could choose between Founders, Alumni, and the suites for a lucky few...and on north there's Hamel, Purtil, and Linnehan which are only a short shuttle ride away!

For juniors and seniors, there are the suites and townhouses (100s, 200s, 300s, and 400s)! One of my favorite things about St. Mike's is the housing guarantee, meaning that basically ALL students choose to live on campus for all 4 years!

Here are some other housing-related posts:

Alex living in Linnehan next year
Lauren's post on all of the sophomore housing options
Gabbi's posts on the new "SMC Kribs" videos (prospective students will see the video on their tours!) & on how students pick housing!

On a Summer Day in March...

Hey guys!

Ok, so it isn't actually summer...but it might as well be! We've had absolutely gorgeous weather at SMC this week, which makes it seem more like June than March. It's great to be able to go outside and lay in the sun with friends and what seems to be the rest of the school...I've never seen so many people outside on campus before! We laid out in the sun while others roller bladed, biked, skateboarded, played frisbee, made a slip-n-slide, and a few were able to swim (inflatable pool, jealous!) So, I took a few pictures this week of our beautiful campus and what some students are up to in this unusually warm weather...

Galya, Mary, and Me on our first day back from break!

Tanning outside with the Ryan 2nd floor girls! 80 degrees today!!

students everywhere!

homework outside- perfect day for it!
Reading outside > reading inside

CARTWHEELS! Hey, why not?

...and finally, going to see the view of the
mountains from campus...beautiful!

Hopefully I'll be able to make it down to the beach sometime soon, or maybe we'll just have to buy an inflatable pool of our own :)
