It was nice to come back to Anacapa after Winter Break and see everyone in our community reconnecting and filling the halls with life once again. Everyone seems to be getting back into the swing of things and excited to continue their time here Anacapa. Our hall council has grown closer and is getting a lot of ideas and activities for the community lined up this quarter. Anacapa's hall color and mascot has been decided by the community to be an orange anaconda. This quarter I hope to see the floors become more integrated and involved with one another outside of hosted events. I would also like to praise our hall council for having a great first quarter and carrying their enthusiasm into the winter quarter. Some highlights from last quarter, we held a hall wide dodgeball tournament, Halloween costume party and Anacappuccino. These events had big turn outs and went above and beyond their objectives. Anacappuccino was very successful in raising money for three major charities and having residents from all of the halls perform. Also these three events, being all inclusive, gave many students a chance to get to know more members of their community and get connected with kids outside their immediate dwelling. I'm looking forward to great things this quarter from my hall council and community.
