Molly and Nathan Mehta and their father enjoying Champaign!
The Illinois Evans Scholars are all about making sure kids are staying well. To keep this trends through the house, the GRAs and two class representatives from each year have put together a Wellness Committee that puts on events for the chapter as well as spreads knowledge on how to stay healthy both mentally and physically throughout the school year. Our chapter has done multiple talks about this during our chapter meetings, and our newest event taking place will be a yoga class. This event was being led by one our very own Scholars, sophomore Samantha St. Leger, who has a passion for staying in shape and promoting a well-balanced lifestyle. Food and refreshments were provided while Scholars were able to explore the different techniques that come with yoga.
Our Scholars also know how to get creative! Take a look as some of our Scholars get creative with their costumes for Halloween this year.
From Nov. 3-5, the Illinois chapter welcomed their dads to Illinois for Dads Weekend with some scholarly events, most notably our tailgate before the Illinois vs. Minnesota football game. Scholars are always very excited to welcome their dads to Champaign!
Our chapter will soon be on fall break for some down time before we come back to conquer our finals and close out the semester. It's going to be a busy time at the Scholarship House.
