Dining on North Campus

Last week, I was finally able to make my first trip to Knights of the Round Table which is a dining option on North Campus. Eating on North Campus is included on your meal plan. The only thing you have to do differently from Alliot (the dining hall on main campus) is to call ahead to make reservations. Knights of the Round Table is more like a restaurant; you get served bread and butter before your meal, you have a menu to choose from, and you have waiters that bring out your food to you. I ended up having good appetizers, a delicious entree (picture below), and of course I couldn't stay away from having the maple cheesecake for dessert!

Zumba Classes

At start of the school year, there is a fitness class schedule sent out through e-mails. You have the choice to sign up for either a yoga class, a zumba class, or a strength conditioning class. It's only ten dollars for 6 week sessions. Not sure what class you want to take? The first week of classes is considered free trial week, so it gives you the opportunity to try out the classes before you pay.

Yesterday was the start of trial week and zumba was the one class I wanted to try out the most. I have to admit I was kind of afraid of going because unlike Shakira, I think that my hips sometimes do lie and I don't have all of the best dance moves. Despite my fear of embarrassing myself, I went anyways with my friends and this is what happened...

how I actually danced..
As predicted, my dancing wasn't up to par, but it didn't quite matter as much as I thought it would. It's a class where you don't need to be this dancing expert. Instead, it's all about having a fun time and also getting a good workout.
