This fall one of our Social Hangout events included going to the Purple Power Play in the Park. The students enjoyed winning prizes, spraying their hair fun colors, and seeing live bands perform among the many activities throughout City Park. The night even ended with fireworks; what a way to start the semester!
Setting a bit of a tradition, this fall a group of students went to the Lazy Heart D Bison Ranch and got the chance to feed and learn about the buffalo (and then later taste some buffalo burgers). The ranch owner, Ed, has met many international students over the years and impressed many of our students with his ability to speak some Chinese. Students learned a little about the history of the ranch land and were able to hand-feed the bison.
