Thank you and everyone from the Writers House for the awesome display of hospitality shown towards the cross country team last night. Everything from the meal to the lecture to the time spent with Chris and the signed copies of his book were greatly appreciated. It was quite a crowd there last night, as I'm sure you heard. We had 28 of the 32 varsity cross country runners there! Chris was very engaging and I feel we could have stayed there all night to talk, without even getting too much into running. I hope to have him join our team at practice in the future so we can resume our discussions and tap into his wealth of experience. This is the type of collaboration that the liberal arts experience and athletics strives for, well done.
F&M Cross Country
"Writers House and the people here have welcomed, taught, comforted, fed, encouraged, and inspired me these past four years. The friendships I've made will last a lifetime, the house has become a home away from home, and every moment I've spent in this wonderful community will continue to shape my life long after I leave F&M." - Cassie Lees '10
