秋季家庭周末从周四晚上开始, with a 大学咨询 workshop and dinner (and bingo) before the early morning Friday Morning Reports. 在体育馆集合, the Morning Reports team kicked off the special gathering with ‘Rao Rumbles,’ a segment during which 校长 Jenny Rao answers questions left anonymously in a box outside her office. 在本期节目中. Rao answered a question asking for advice when it comes to tackling a large list of things to do when one is feeling overwhelmed.
Ms. Rao reminded the community of the importance of prioritizing those things that refuel us—exercising, 读一本书, 烘烤饼干, alongside tangible tools to help wrangle an overwhelming to-do list like breaking large tasks up into smaller plans and then trusting that plan (but also, a reminder to check in with your advisor if you’re feeling overwhelmed often)!
Rao Rumbles还需要回答另一个问题. 饶，什么是爱情?”
“I wonder what this student was thinking when they asked this question,” she started. 也许他们在想, 我怎么知道我恋爱了, 或者爱的感觉到底是什么或者不是什么? 我对这个问题的解释是恋爱的感觉.”
“对我的爱。. 饶继续说，“是我生活的基石. 它很强大, 它表现在很多方面:对学习的热爱, 对生命的热爱, 澳博下载app地址生活中的人. 爱也会让人心碎! 我相信勇敢的人爱...爱是勇气.”

The students noted that the goal of this day is to “shine a spotlight on the strength and resilience of Native Americans who endured centuries of violence, 歧视, 文化消除,” while also “celebrating the vibrant indigenous communities that exist today in the U.S.”
SDLG provided the audience with several ways to engage with and celebrate Indigenous People’s Day, 包括:
- 探索澳博下载app地址目前居住的土地的信息: for example, Troy, NY is land that was stewarded by the Mohican Nation.
- Listen to and amplify indigenous voices and become invested in the stories of indigenous experiences, 与周围的人分享你的学习.
