Peer Advisor Grace Cassidy is also enjoying her summer and it sounds like she has an awesome reading list lined up this summer. She says,
“I’m currently reading Jailbird by Kurt Vonnegut and next I’m reading Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury. I’m watching Orange is the New Black, Breaking Bad, Grey’s Anatomy and definitely going to squeeze in some classic Lindsay Lohan (my idol as I was a red-headed child with freckles) in The Parent Trap ever since it recently went on Netflix. SO EXCITED. I’m not doing much this summer other than working, hanging out with my friends, napping…. u kno the dEal~*”
Grace will be in the office starting in the end of August!

Brandon Klugman ’16 weighs in with his summer plans and summer reading:
“I’m spending the summer working at a canoe/kayak rental place on Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis, and I’m excited to be going to Lollapalooza in Chicago in August. I’m really into the World Cup and the current season of 24 (my favorite show ever), and I just finished reading a great book called Outcasts United by Warren St. John which is about a youth soccer team made up of refugees in suburban Atlanta.”

BIG thank you to all who participated in the Peer Advisor’s Bucket List tabling event this past Wednesday, April 16th. The picture above shows some examples of what students at AU are hoping to achieve by the end of their time in college. Students wrote about everything from getting involved in research opportunities with their favorite professors to exploring popular museums in the heart of DC. If you’d like to add something that’s on your college bucket list feel free post more ideas in the comments section below!
