YAY! You’ve survived ASB registration! Congrats to everyone who signed up, especially those who signed up for our trip! Remember that the wait list opened at 12 p.m. (47 minutes ago), so if you didn’t get the trip you wanted, make sure you get yourself wait listed!!
Also, a big thanks to all those who came out to the ASB Benefit Concert last night. It was a grand time, we had over 200 hundred people attend, and all the performances were fantastic. A very special thanks to Reputation’s Records for booking Gentlemen Hall – they were absolutely amazing.
AN UPDATED ON OUR TRIP:
Nancy, our wonderful contact at Terrell Lane Middle School, recently informed me that we might get a chance to work with the Boys’ and Girls’ Club in addition to tutoring the kids at the M.S.!!! Jason and I are both super excited about this, and if you’re on our trip, YOU SHOULD BE TOO!!
Everyone should come check out our Fundraising Concert TONIGHT @ 8:30 @ BU CENTRAL!!
Gentlemen Hall (band)
Slow Kids (sketch comedy group)
The BosTones (a’capella)
Soulstice (dance group)
My LOVELY & HALRIOUS CoCo Jason will be hosting the event along with Martin Nolan (who is slightly less funny than Jason).
It’s going to be a lovely time, and there will be dollar slice pizza brought to you by Campus Foods!
Are you jealous?

Jason & Fu
March 12th – 20th, 2011: a group of enthusiastic volunteers/chaperon will embark on a 12-hour drive to Lousiburg, NC for the best week of their lives!
Where are we volunteering?
Louisburg, NC is a quaint town of roughly 3,000 people. We will be going to Terrell Lane M.S. (Home of the Tornadoes) to work with teachers and staff to tutor students in their academics, coach after school sports, and paint a mural. There are about 500 – 600 students in grades 6, 7, and 8. Not only will we tutor these students, but we will make a difference in their lives and serve as a mentor, even if it’s only for a week.
Where are we staying?
We are staying with the Sayles family, who are anything but a typical southern family. Paige and Al Sayles’s four children are all off to college or in the military (and they really miss having kids in the house). They are currently hosing a 15 year-old Korean exchange student. Also, they have about a million pets – one of which is a Chihuahua.
Where are we eating?
The Sayles family will provide a few meals, along with the local church. There will also be a potluck with the Terrell Lane M.S. band! And of course, some major cooking endeavors.
Our trip to Louisburg is one of the two oldest ASB trips in the BU Community Service Center history. And every year, each group brings their own special dynamic to this friendly town. Let’s keep up the tradition and build upon the past few decades of mentoring and role modeling!
On Saturday night (11.20.10), the entire ASB crew got together after the BU vs. New Hampshire Men’s Hockey game to clean the Agganis arena as a fund raising event. Believe it or not, cleaning the arena was quite demanding. But Jason and I found the time for a short break to have a little fun. Here’s us sneaking out onto the ice.
