We hosted our annual SHPEsgiving potluck in the classroom wing and there was nothing that was left untouched. The menu was large and included chicken enchiladas, mac n cheese, rice, arepas, mashed potatoes, an assortment of chips, dips, desserts and more! Luckily, everyone came with an empty stomach and was ready to eat!
The room was filled with smiles laughter the aroma of good food, as well as stories and experiences from this semester. We all had an amazing time, and although SHPEsgiving was our last general body meeting for the semester, we look forward to keeping in contact with every single one of our members over the break and strengthen our bonds next semester!
On a serious note, with Thanksgiving being the official start of the holiday season, it’s important to be thankful for everything that you have. There’s someone that’s in a less-fortunate position hoping to have the things you are complaining about. You truly never know what someone may really be going through at home, work or school, especially during the holiday season. Hence, why our emphasis on familia is so strong and important. Keeping a positive, welcoming, and stress-free space to just enjoy one another’s company was truly the objective of having SHPEsgiving and we definitely accomplished that!
With finals around the corner, the Executive Board wishes all of our members good luck on their exams and projects; as well as safe, stress-free, and enjoyable winter break!
