Happy (one day early) birthday, Chrissy!

17. November 2010 23:55

Today we had the joyous occasion of celebrating Chrissy's 30th birthday. Chrissy's birthday is tomorrow, but her peer mentors were able to gather together a good group of friends and other Next Step students to celebrate this afternoon! There was delicious Weight Watcher's chocolate cake, chips and salsa, and pigs in a blanket. We also had a balloon fight. Tongue out What fun!!!

As her birthday present her Ambasasdores gave her a very cool Vanderbilt wind breaker jacket. How sweet!!

Back to the start of Fall 2010

16. November 2010 14:27

I am so excited to say that we have 55 Ambasasdores working with Next Steps at Vanderbilt this fall semseter. The above photo was taken by Steve Green at the fall 2010 Student Organization Fair. Hugely in part to Edward's help we were able to recruit the majority of our newest peer mentors. Our cover story in the Vanderbilt View has also generated a great amount of interest in the program among students.

We're looking forward to another strong semester with lots of amazing Ambassadores in the spring!

Experimenting with projectiles! Lots of fun!

We took a thing that's like a canon and put a marble to see how far we could shoot the marble through the projectile. We started off using 75 degrees and worked our way down to 25 degrees for the projectile angle. Jacquè took these great photos of us in the lab.
