As usual, the long-awaited retreat began with a deluxe breakfast prepared by the House E-board. Residents spent the morning enjoying their favorite homemade breakfast foods while making introductions and conversation. When it was time to head out, House Vice President Yadirys Collado (CAS ’14) finally revealed the retreat activity: pottery painting!
Together, we hopped onto the T, making quite a racket all the way to Arlington. From there, we found ourselves walking along a scenic bike path complete with a dog park, pond and lush greenery – the perfect place to take in the fresh autumn air. After arriving at the pottery place, everyone focused on painting their pieces to perfection while making the occasional chit-chat. Two hours later, we headed back toward BU, recommencing the conversation and laughter. By the time we arrived at those black gates of 191 Bay State Rd., we truly felt closer to one another. Here’s looking toward a year filled with friendship, memories, and much more chatter.
