Students from Geneva High came to the Intercultural Affairs Center to prepare for their chemistry midterm that was taking place on the following day. These students who came from different ways of life arrived together to the Conference Room to prepare for their exam. Questions where being asked and answered as the students fired through their study guide. Covering topics such as stoichiometry, periodization and bonding of atoms made the two hours that they spent together very resourceful. When discussing their interest for the subject, some said that they were thinking about continuing studying chemistry in college. The students were very thankful about being able to use the Conference Room and promised to return.
As promised–more on Winter break activities at HWS! Students here at HWS over the break have been hard at work! Hahaha–correction–more like having fun! This past weekend, students had a game night at the IC with pizza and also went ice skating at the Geneva Recreation Center downtown followed by dinner at Wing Tai. Trips such as these allow students to connect in a relaxing atmosphere while having fun.

The fun doesn’t stop when classes are over! For some students who are not able to go home, they spend time on campus partaking in winter break activities such as Wegmans shopping, trips to Rochester and dinner and movie outings. Because of the snow fall, students were able to take advantage of sledding on the Caird/DeCordova/Emerson hill and dinner at Pure Indian Grille. Keep reading this blog over the next few weeks to find out what other fun things are happening over the break!
