Briee Della Roca, who takes photos for Bennington’s gorgeous flickr account, came to my house’s coffee hour this past Sunday and took some amazing photos.
Coffee Hour is one of my favorite things about Bennington. It’s a time every Sunday at 10 (or 11, depending on what your house has agreed upon) when everyone in the house gathers in the common room and hangs out, talks, hears campus announcements, and generally has a good time. Usually there is a theme, and two people are signed up to make food and design the theme.
This Sunday’s, in honor of Halloween, was Monsters vs. Animals. The food was homemade pumpkin pies, cider, and sugar cookies shaped like pumpkins. After we ate, talked, and went over house announcements, we split into teams and had a pumpkin carving contest.
