Helloooo team, alumni, parents! We are starting our first ever blog post series, to continue sharing a more personal side of the team and leadership through a snippet of our regular/every day lives! Our first blog post is from Max Orman-Kollmar, who is off this term but is rearing to come back for Winter Carnival (?) and spring term!!
On a winter day long since passed, I heard many of my friends parrot the same complaint: “7 am drill is soooo baaaad!” Well, guess what, boys and girls: I can do you one better!
Being off both winterim and winter term has left me with plenty of time to fill. I have since done so by laying pipe- no, you degenerates, thats not an innuendo. I am currently working for a plumbing company and am on various sites installing water lines, learning how to use various power tools and just overall working on becoming the world’s premiere Mario™ cosplayer. Since I’ve gotta be on the site in downtown Manhattan (or Queens for my first site), I have to be up around 4:30 in the morning. The cold air, compounded with wind chill, made the Queens site unbearable as it had NO WINDOWS. Imagine handling cold metal rods and trying to tighten tiny screws, all while hoping that you’re fingers are just stiff and not legit frozen solid. Continue reading
Yeah, yeah I know what you’re about to say – winter’s been in season since November! But Club Swim is about to pop back in the pool and begin our season after about 6 weeks of being fish out of the water!
For any new potential members, there is an info session that will be happening at 6pm in the gym lobby TOMORROW, Monday, January 8th! Look for leadership and anyone wearing Club Swim apparel!
Following that, at 6:30pm in the Karl Michael pool in the gym basement, we will kick off our first open practice (of the week of open practices)! Come by and try Club Swim out even if you can’t make the info session, but do try to fill out the insurance waiver beforehand. If you can’t though, also no worries, it’ll just be an extra 5 minutes or so of filling it out on the pool deck via a laptop!
See everyone soon!

WELCOME 21s to the Big Green, and welcome home to the returning upperclassmen!!
Leadership had so much fun seeing everyone on the Green yesterday (as you can see by our very big smiles), and we are even more excited to actually get going for our 2017-2018 season!
That being said, everyone is welcome and all are encouraged to attend our Club Swim general INFO SESSION this coming Saturday!! It will be in Collis 101, 5-6pm! Look for people with the Club Swim apparel, or take a look at the Leadership page in case you want a familiar face to look for! 🙂
See everyone there!!
