Spring Break, S.T.A.T., and Learning to Cook

After a week off for spring break, S.T.A.T. Ambassadors joined back together for another general meeting. To start the meeting off, we discussed our recent spring break experiences. I went on a tour around Iowa—working a few days, traveling to Davenport to visit one of my sisters, traveling to Fort Madison to visit a friend, and returning home for my dad’s surprise 60th birthday party. Last week’s weather was amazing, so I can’t really complain. Who wants a beach when you can have 60-degree weather one day and 25-degree weather the next?

During the meeting we discussed a lot of things we plan to do in the future with the S.T.A.T. program. Some of the ideas included having alumni football players coming back for a flag football game, Homecoming tailgate events, and water ballooning rival mascots. With only a few S.T.A.T. Ambassador meetings left for the semester, our discussion last night had us already looking forward to next fall semester.

To conclude our meeting, we had a S.T.A.T. Ambassador pot luck. We had a wide variety of yummy foods, including meatballs, spaghetti, spinach and artichoke dip, buffalo chicken dip, and cookies. Being a busy student and not much of a cook, I brought chips and salsa. After seeing the variety of foods, I have decided to try to learn how to cook. But looking into my wallet, I discovered that mac and cheese may have to do for awhile!

S.T.A.T. Ambassadors have a very exciting month coming up. Senior Send-Off Week will take place from April 11 through April 15. One of the events planned is a Cooking for One class—just what I need! The class will take place in Coralville at the Pioneer Co-Op. Space is limited, so I plan on signing up today.

Look forward to hearing about more exciting events planned for Senior Send-Off Week in my blog next week!
