Yay finals are finally over!! Sorry it took me so long to post, but I haven't really had a spare minute and the one time I tried to figure out how to post my computer wouldn't let me. So I'm absolutely excited about Asheville this summer! I also was told about some big house and a bunch of other places I need to go see so I hope everyone is up for site seeing with me!

Now for a little bit about myself. I'm April Scudere and I will be going into my senior year at Westminster College in PA {although I'm actually from Ohio}. I play singles and doubles on our tennis team and absolutely love it. I will be bringing my rackets so hopefully someone is up for hitting around with me :). I am also a sports writer for my schools newspaper, involved in a bunch of academic honors societies, and a representative on our school's sports committee. And most importantly, math takes over my life. I work for the math dept. as a tutor and I also tutor on the side whenever my advisor gets high school students needing math help. In my spare time, I like to play tennis {if that wasn't obvious already}, shop, eat {desserts/chocolatey things are my weakness}, hang out with friends, work out, be crafty, and watch The Office.

I can't wait to meet you all in a few weeks!! Hopefully the weather is nice down there because I can't stand 50 degree weather anymore!

Hey :)


My name is MJ (Michael James) and I'm from Georgia College & State University (GCSU) in good ol' Milledgeville, GA, a small town ini the center of the state, pop. 18000, whose "famous" residents include "Joel Godard, an announcer for the Late Night with Conan O'Brian TV show" (thanks Wikipeida). I am a going to be a fifth year senior in the fall because I decided to double major in Mathematics and Creative Writing--I just got done completing my senior capstone in English so from here on out it's math all day and night. Although I live in Georgia now I am originally from the U.K. where I live before emigrating my sophomore year of high school.

I am very excited about Asheville. Everyone keeps telling me how wonderful it is and how pretty it is and that I should go to all these places (something about a big house is all I remember...), so it sounds like it's going to be a good time.

Anyway: hope to see you all soon :-)


Hey Everyone!

My name is Cindy Cook, and I am currently a Sophomore at Catawba College in NC. I am from a small town about an hour north of Pittsburgh, PA. I actually pass Westminster College every time I drive home (I noticed someone went there). I have one younger sister who is graduating high school on June 7th. I will not be getting to Asheville until later that day.

Along with Math, I am studying Economics. I am involved in Student Government, tutoring, the retreat leadership core, Alphas, Teaching Fellows, and Environment Catawba Outreach. Any spare time I have, I’m working in the Center for the Environment doing research and whatever is needed of me. I’m lucky if I get 6 hours of sleep a night, but I love staying busy.

I cannot wait for this summer. Asheville, from everything I’ve been told, is beautiful!
