I hope that all of you are having a great summer wherever you're spend it! I'm excited to see everyone again this coming fall (I know, I know, it probably feels like it's already too soon).
For those of you that will be new to the floor (and even for those who won't be!) please feel welcome to email me at email@example.com with any questions you might have about the move to towers next year or any other concern.
I wanted to start up a forum thread for us regarding hall program ideas for next year. I think that the more we plan ahead the more we can get out of them. I will start it off with some ideas I have been thinking of. Please feel free to critique them or add to them!
Shopping trip, lunch, in combination with first floor meeting (perhaps we could organize rides with those on the floor that have cars to go for a shopping trip very early on in the new school year. We could stop at places like target, wegmans, and cheap used goods stores so that AIF people could make purchases for the floor and joint common areas and do personal shopping for groceries and things. We could stop for a lunch somewhere interesting or at the very least pick up sushi and stuff at Wegmans)
-Movie trip to the Little Theatre, an indepedent theatre in Rochester (biggest limiting factor in scheduling this last year is that they were only posting schedules <1 week in advance so we had no idea what they were showing)
-Floor BBQ Plus (something like our previous BBQs, but maybe involving more interactive activities--not that eating is not interactive!--like board games, card games, oregami, competative ramen eating, etc. etc.)
-Group sushi lessons (I know that AIF does a sushi program every semester, and perhaps if we could get some extra funding for a lesson program, apart from sushi nights on the hall themselves, it could make those nights even more enjoyable)
-Multicultural cooking night (there were a lot of requests for this last year, but it was difficult to find a time when everyone that wanted to cook was free. There is also an issue of space--perhaps if we plan ahead we could find a larger more comfortable kitchen on campus)
-Trip off campus to interesting artistic event (e.g. the MAG--free for students!, George Eastman House, Dryden Theatre--this might be particular interesting since it would drive with AIF's film interests well, Eastman Theatre--repeat of seeing an orchestra/choire?--Art gallery)
I will post more ideas I've had as I remember them, feel free to add your own and let me know what you think!

i was at a wegman's yesterday and i asked about sushi making lessons but they said they didn't have them. I thought I remembered you saying something about sushi lessons at wegman's Greg, unless i am mistaken. however i think that could be really fun if we can find reasonable lessons somewhere close-by.
as to the larger cooking space, i will email the activities director at the interfaith chapel b/c i know they let people use their multiple kitchens sometimes. i have seen the ones for the Newman Community (Catholic kids on campus) and it is a fairly large kitchen and larger eating area. The Jewish community has a kitchen as well (Kosher) and there is another kitchen in the middle level also. we'll see if I can get a quick reply from the building's officials! i think it would be great if we could use one of those kitchens.
group activities that I enjoy include: bowling, ice-skating, and bonfire-(ing?)... the fire is probably impossible and for those less enthused with the cold ice-skating might not be great.
i know a bike trip was discussed by a few members of AIF briefly last semester but that leans athletic and everyone may not have bikes.
i know if we keep cranking out ideas one of them is bound to work!!
