Happy Monday Everyone!

This past Saturday at Hope, the student activities committee (SAC) hosted a charter bus trip to Chicago. SAC puts on different fun activities throughout the year and this is one of them. The trip was a lot of fun and 3 charter busses from Hope came and helped populate the Chicago streets even more. The lights festival was taking place on the magnificent mile and there were wall-to-wall people during the festival. We could not even walk down the streets because there were so many people.

Even though the stores were crowded, we still had a lot of fun. Once we got off the bus we ate at Buca de Beppo, which is an awesome Italian restaurant. We had some great food! Then we ventured through Michigan Avenue and hit up different stores. While we were in Chicago, I was able to see one of my friends from high school who attends college in Chicago. I was so glad I got to spend some time with her. We did get to see a tiny glimpse of the light festival, but because there were so many people, it was hard to get a good look. After we finally made it through all the people, we had a good dinner together and left Chicago about 8 p.m. I had such a great time, and I hope to go on the trip next year.
