About 75 Bonchekers started off the Spring semester with a trip to play laser tag on Saturday, Jan. 18. Thanks to Congress for organizing the trip and subsidizing the tickets. Photos by Maya McNeal.
Bonchek winter olympics
Bonchek had its own winter olympics with an impromptu snow sculpture contest and snowball fight on Feb. 3. 1st prize went to The Thinker, by John and Abel, due to its thoughtful pose, elegant form, and detail. Godzilla, the Grand Piano, and the Bonchek Crest were also well crafted. Prizes were won by all!
One World, One Dance
On March 4, Ariana Solodar-Wincele gave a slide show of her trip to Guinea, Africa, over semester break. She and Janet Peck performed African dances, the African drumming ensemble led by Tammi Hessen, and we all enjoyed food from Rafiki's deli. It was our loudest (and one of our best) UnCommon Hours!
Prof. Sternberg ends his four-year tenure as don of Bonchek House this summer. In his honor, students Cameron Koob, Esther Kim, Jenny Georgieva, Otto Magee, Jack Mizell, and Ricard Camuccio presented an open-mic evening on March 27, with refreshments for all.
Several hundred students celebrated the end of the academic year on April 12 at the Bonchek-sponsored Classy Ball, organized and paid for by the student Congress. Tunes were spun by Tayzhaun and Geovani.
