Western Recreational Services hosted a free open skate for Western students at Danbury Ice Arena last Friday.
Directly after the Danbury Titans game, students hit the ice from 10 pm to 12 am, with music, free refreshments, and skate rentals provided. Shuttle service was also available to and from the arena.
The free skate was part of Rec After Dark, which provides opportunities for Western students to get together for fun night-time events. Past events have included a free skate session last semester, as well as a “Glow” event featuring laser tag, glow-in-the-dark dodgeball and Zumba in Berkshire Hall.
Running from mid-May to mid-June, the WCSU Summer Study Program in Spain allows for students to spend a summer attending class in Malaga, Spain at the cost of only $4,300, an estimated thousand dollars less than other schools’ programs.
The program is open to all WCSU students, and not only can it be used to fulfill the Intercultural Competency/Foreign Language requirement, but all classes taken can count for electives or major/minor requirements in Spanish. In addition to education, the program also gives students opportunities to travel to the cities of Madrid and Marbella and learn how to dance the flamenco and cook Spanish food like paella and tapas.
