Staff from Facilities enjoyed ice cream during an ice cream social held by Class Council 2014 .
Class council meets Junior year! This year feels much different than the last two, though. Why, you may ask? Well, as first-years, class council is responsible for planning Winter Wonderland, described on the college website as: "Before students leave for winter break, Bartol Dining Hall is revamped for a community feast. Faculty and students fill the dining hall, as the College president cuts the turkey. The residence halls are decorated with lights and ribbons by their hall councils to complete the winter wonderland feeling".
As sophomores, class council directs their efforts toward putting together the May Day celebration: "Simmons's oldest annual student tradition, when sophomores serenade the seniors at the break of dawn with pots, pans, and noisemakers. Festivities include a maypole dance at dawn, tree planting, and a strawberry shortcake breakfast".
Senior year is usually filled with the most events, such as "Octoberfest", the "Senior Faculty Toast" and senior week events. However, Junior year does not have any traditional big event, but class council 2014 is thinking about creating one! And even though we do not have a "traditional junior class" event to plan, we are going to have a lot of other events throughout the year.
In fact, we have already hosted our first event of the semester - a welcome back ice cream social for all Simmons students! It was held on Thursday September 13th on the Residence Campus Quad. It was a sunny day, with a high of 82 degrees - the perfect day for ice cream. My favorite part was that not only did Simmons students cool down with ice cream, but so did Simmons staff!
