We had A LOT of fun events these past weeks! Here is a brief outline of what our Shipmates have been up to!
We had SHIPMAN WEEKEND! Shipman Weekend is usually a 3-day long weekend where prospective Shipmates are invited to Ann Arbor to meet the current Shipmates as well as tour campus and their respective schools. It is usually a weekend jam-packed with social and informational events as well as student interviews. We love Shipman weekend as it is always so much fun to show students how amazing our community is. This year we had a virtual Shipman weekend event where prospective students came to hear about our experiences. It was organized by our amazing Student Relations Chair, Oliver Barron. Students were split into breakout rooms based on their majors/interests. It was so much fun to meet everyone and we hope to see you all in the Fall 🙂
Next up, we hosted a Bob Ross Painting Night over Zoom. Shipmates were able to pick up painting supplies in order to join a super fun Zoom call where we each painted along with the amazing, Bob Ross. We watched the video “The Grandeur of Summer” (in case anyone wants to reference). See below for some of our amazing creations!
Our last amazing activity of the week took place at our last Shipman meeting! Our meeting was community service based where we worked on transcribing documents for the Smithsonian! It was super interesting to learn about these documents and Shipmates found some really cool information. We learned a lot about an aviatrix named Ruth Law.
