Take a look through these photos and you’ll notice something about everyone in them. They’re all smiling. Even the lasagna is smiling if you look closely.
Last Friday, the Buena Vista Institute hosted a social to kick off the semester. What better way to start the semester then eating delicious food with friends at the institute? I mean, sure, last time I went to one of these socials things got a little heavy with a mysterious murder, but it was still really fun.
This activity was just as great. As the first social of the semester, there were plenty of opportunities to meet new people. They introduced this year’s institute council: Erik Flores, Maggie Wright, Tatiana Monsen, Richard Thorman, Cody Hosier, and Bronwyn Himes. They’ve taken it upon themselves to do everything they can to help the rest of us help ourselves by signing up for institute classes this semester. If you haven’t already, be sure to register now!
The whole activity was pretty chill, but there were other memorable moments. The Elders had compiled an awesome video showing why so many students attend Institute. We got to sing happy birthday to Bishop Rodriguez. The food was amazing. (Don’t tell anyone, but I may have carried away a whole thing of extra lasagna. But I swear, Bronwyn and Maggie said I could.)
All in all, it was a wonderful opportunity to meet new people and enroll for institute classes. A big hand to the new Institute council that pulled it off!
