This has been a fast moving semester, I’m sorry I haven’t posted in a tick.
WOW Week is a week here at GCC with exciting events the whole week.
Monday, September 13, 2010
I felt this event was over all helpful for GCC students as a whole. It’s important to have short and long term goals and events like this give you an opportunity to think about your future. I am currently looking into SUNY BROCKPORT,NIAGARA UNIVERSITY, and SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY. I am leaning toward SUNY BROCKPORT because of the cost, but the other schools may have more of a long term hold for my future. My brother an RIT graduate assures me that “you have your whole life to pay off school and that the quality of education is the most important part”. He is currently in Milwaukee working as a packaging engineer at SCJ. During the summer I took four summer classes at GCC and during a weekend I took a trip to Milwaukee to see him. He is my current inspiration. I hope you enjoy the picture! Speaking of inspiration, who inspires you? Let these people in your lives drive you toward excellence.
I unfortunately did not get there in time to enjoy the delicious assortment of finger food, but I did however get a wacky caricature done by a GCC Alumni, Peter Badami. This made the event much more successful because everyone loves a souvenir. This is my fifth caricature I own and I hope to add more to my collection soon. I love art in general it inspires not only my mind, but the way I dress. My first semester of college I took ART HISTORY 104, this was one of the most rewarding classes I have had the opportunity of taking.I fell in love with the work of Van Gogh with his thick brush strokes the evoked so much emotion.

Info Fair-wild west theme
I hopped around quite a bit during this event volunteering at the Student Government table and T.V. Club table. There was definitely school spirit in the air.
I briefly attended this it looked like people were having a blast! I, however, have always been prone to injury and was afraid I would get hit by a protruding object.
Wednesday, September 15th
This was a lot of fun and I hope everyone took time out of their day to take part. The food was great and the Abbott’s frozen custard hit the spot. It was hard to choose a flavor, but in the end I choose chocolate almond. There was also a live DJ.

Drunk Sex or Date Rape: Can you Tell the Difference?
This controversial event was mandatory for all College Village residents and all sports teams. A truly inspiring nationally known speaker Brett Sokolow ran this interactive program. The students were very responsive and willing to state their opinions.
Dinner and a Movie
I volunteered for CAB for this event. It seemed that the students were enjoying the film and the tacos! The movie was Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland. I enjoy the Disney cartoon version and I like this director, but unfortunately wasn’t about to watch the movie.
It’s a wrap! I hope you enjoyed your week of WOW. Please feel free to share your WOW Week memories.
