President’s Press: paid for by the WSGA

To my fellow students:

I hope you all had a great Labor Day. I know I sure did. It was really nice to actually spend a little time relaxing and reflecting rather than just “GO, GO, GO” all the time. I think one concept college students (myself certainly included) often forget is the power and importance of rest and sleep. With that said, I have definitely not been the best example of that during my time at Washburn, but every once in awhile you figure things like that out through experience.

Friday is WU In The Community which is a great time to get out into our community and take part in an act of service. There are several different locations and service projects that you can choose from. If interested, you can meet on the lawn between the Union and Garvey at 1:30 p.m. on Friday. It should be a lot of fun… and there will be free pizza for participants as well!

The Ichabods and Lady Blues have had great starts in all three sports so far this Fall. The volleyball team is 8-0 and ranked #6 in the country! WU football had a very impressive performance scoring a school-record 82 points in a game this past Friday and are now 2-0. They’ll be back on the field this Saturday at 6:00 p.m. for our first conference game against Missouri Southern. You should come on out and support our Bods. You can still join Bod Squad. Members get a free t-shirt and free food at the Bod Squad Tailgate for every game!

Collegiate Readership started up again this past week. This is a great program available now for STUDENTS ONLY. The locations where you can pick up your free newspapers, which are evenly spread across campus, are Henderson, two locations in the Memorial Union (one right by our office in the basement of the Union), Petro, and Stoffer.

Hope you all have a great week!
