Scholars Ice Cream Social

The incoming Scholars class of 2016 was welcomed last Monday at the Scholars Ice Cream Social. The Mellon Dining room was packed with Scholars—from first years to seniors—and everyone was enjoying a nice cup of ice cream while mingling with their Scholar mentors. Dr. Lenz gathered us all in a circle, like every one of his classes, and made us go around the room to introduce ourselves. We are a very diverse group: there are women from as far away as California, the East Coast, and right here in Pittsburgh. Dr. Lenz talked to us about how important it was to be a part of the Scholars program because we raise the academic standard at Chatham but we remain humble at the same time, always remembering that we are here to find whom we are and what we want to do after these four years at Chatham University.
By the end of all the mingling and ice cream, a few first years were left—I being one of them—talking about the upcoming classes for the week and what events the Scholars program would be doing in the future. All my first year friends at Chatham and I decided that we were very happy to be in the program we are in and to be with the people we will spend the next four years studying with in class. The Ice Cream Social was a great way to start out our time here at Chatham and we can’t wait to go to another Scholars event.
