The Alumni Activities Club is surely on a roll these days! Our most recent trip was to the Wicked Eatery, Pub & Entertainment in Clifton Park, NY on the evening of Thursday, July 8, 2021. We wanted to give the alumni a change of scenery from the stretch of restaurants a stone’s throw from their own neighborhoods near the College of Saint Rose. (It is common for alumni to remain within Albany and move a short distance away from the program.) Andrew, Mia, Rob, Dora, and Jessica enjoyed the Open Mic Night in which they had the chance to see the talents of local musical performers. We may be returning in two weeks to watch the Thunderbird Band perform, which is a group of teenage musicians who specialize in classic rock songs.
We anticipate this is going to be the start of many more College Experience adventures throughout this summer and beyond as life starts returning to the Old Normal! The alumni are wonderful about advocating for themselves to voice their desire to plan certain activities. Andrew has already suggested a trip to the Darien Lake Amusement Park, which we are exploring at this moment in time. We would also like to extend a heartfelt welcome to our newest member, Dora Butner (wearing pink in the photo) who enjoyed her first outing with the club this particular night!
