As the semester comes to a close, my time on campus has mostly been occupied with finishing finals/schoolwork, and attending to fundraising for the 2014 trip to Kolkata, India. MOVE, the service organization on campus, runs extended service trips, and SMC students have had the opportunity to travel to Kolkata for 3 weeks each spring to bring resources to the Mother Theresa homes, and also to assist in the service these organizations have already established. This year, seven  students, a student leader, and two faculty leaders will be making the trip. Every year that I've been at Saint Mike's, a close friend of mine has gone on the trip, and in that way the India trip has always existed as a part of my experience at Saint Mike's. This year, I get to go for the first time, and our first fundraiser is an international market featuring crafts from India and the Dominican Republic (another international service trip).

If you can and are willing, you should stop by the market between today and Saturday! All the funds from this market go directly to the service organizations we work with in India and D.R., so it's a good cause.
To my fellow SMC'ers: best of luck on finals!
Thanks for reading ;)
