Besides wearing your dancing shoes, many students have been donning their maroon and gold and cheering on the basketball and hockey teams. We were all disappointed to see the Gophers lose in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Last month the Gopher hockey team finished its conference season with a big game at Target Center against border rival Wisconsin. And we all got the chance to skate like the Gophers at a free skating night at Mariccui Arena in February--it was a blast!
The University Honors Student Association took a couple of trips to explore the museums of the Twin Cities this semester with trips to the Science Museum of Minnesota and the Minneapolis Institute of Art. It was a great chance for students from outside the Twin Cities area to see the museums for the first time, and students from the Twin Cities to revisit some great metro area attractions.
One of Carlson's biggest annual events is coming up very soon--Business Week. This year's Business Week, or B-Week, will take place the second week in April and is the 50th year of the celebration. All week, students will enjoy speakers, events, and loads of free food. Some of the highlights include Carlson's version of The Price is Right, a week-long volleyball and basketball tournament, a case competition, and Business Day and Etiquette dinners. I am very much looking forward to this week-long celebration of Carlson!
Well, I am off to enjoy some music and free Jimmy John's at an outdoor concert at Northrop Mall featuring U of M student groups. After that, it's off to the showing of The Blind Side at Coffman, and then dancing with student group USwing!
