Snapshot: April 17, 2017
This is the week to take stock and recharge a little bit before we plow into Spring Term and look ahead to the end of the school year and graduation. Activities on campus have slowed to a trickle as most of the undergraduates are on spring break. But we did find a few events this week that you won’t want to miss. Before heading out to your favorite spots on campus, check for closings or abbreviated hours.
The Employee Recognition Banquet will take place today. After enjoying a catered lunch, we’ll wish all the best to this year’s batch of retirees. Evans Hall, 11:30 a.m.
Take advantage of the lovely weather forecast for this week to get outside and cheer on the W&L baseball team. Washington and Lee plays Bridgewater at home at 4 p.m. For more info about athletics, click here.
Devote a lunch break to a free cooking class today and you’ll have great ideas for your next dinner. Join dining services chef Hannah Glick for a free spring cooking class featuring healthy Thai cuisine. At this class, you’ll learn how to make seared shrimp over a rainbow sweet potato and Romanesco hash with mango Thai peanut sauce, featuring herbs and greens from the Campus Garden. Yum! This event can be logged as a Live Well W&L activity in the Evolve Wellness program. Evans Hall, noon-1 p.m.
