    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Mentor Connection Event

A week ago, Matthew R. and I attended the second Mentor Connection event as Student Ambassadors of the program. Both of us graduated from the program last year and since then, we have been actively recruiting and encouraging CSS students to participate and benefit from this program. Mentor Connection is a NORTHFORCE initative that pairs local business leaders and professionals with UMD and CSS college students to create lasting relationships and valuable connections through a year-long mentorship program.

Culture Night

Last Friday, the International Club in conjuction with the Asian Student Union held its annual Culture Night in Mitchell Auditorium. I remember in my freshman year when I took part in the Fashion Show of the event. Last year, I did not participate, but like this year, I got to witness the various backgrounds and identities celebrated at CSS through poem, spoken word, music, dance, and many other art forms. As always, after the event, we got a treat from India Palace, which serves really good food that I like.

This week, there will be much pomp and fanfare as we celebrate the International community on campus through a series of events. This past weekend, Office of IInternational Programs organized trips to the mall to give students the opportunity to get off campus and go shopping. I look forward to the events coming up this week especially the potluck and international-themed lunch at GDR!

Apartment Community Events

This past weekend, we had 2 events in Cedar Lounge aimed at bringing the residents together. Res Life brought goodies such as cookies, pancakes, hot cocoa, and games for residents to play. I rarely see all the residents in one place so it was fun to meet with and have a chat with neighbors.
