We're coming to a close of the semester!  The best part about coming closer to the end is all of the traditions that go along with the end of the semester at Rockhurst.  One tradition for Student Senate, is our annual dinner at Dr Quick's house.  Dr Quick is our Senate adviser in addition to the Vice President for Student Development and Athletics for our university.  Every year (to my knowledge) he and his family has welcomed our rowdy group of college students into their home for a holiday dinner.  It is often such a relief to have an evening off campus to just think about being with friends, and what is considered a part of your Rockhurst family.  Driving to a more residential part of Kansas City also gave me my first glance of Christmas lights displays rivaling those back home.  This reminder that the holidays are near also put classes into perspective, which is exactly what we all need going into finals week.

Senators enjoyed taking pictures around the fire and the Christmas tree in the beautiful home of Dr Quick

Another tradition I'm looking forward to is Senate Midnight Breakfast.  Every year, we sponsor breakfast from 10pm-midnight in the caf, right before finals week.  Rockhurst students fill up on food to energize them for the coming week (or night of last minute studying)  Senate only asks for $1 or a canned food item to fill up on all the breakfast food you can eat, and we donate the money and canned foods to St Francis Xavier church- across the street from Rockhurst.  Its a great way for students to hang out and enjoy a meal as the semester comes to a close!  

Some pictures added after the event.
