Final Thoughts From the Entertainment Editor

The Do's and Don'ts of Lyndon State

By Dana Berlin

As my time here at Lyndon State comes to a close, I figured I would just take a moment to pass on some useful information to younger students.  I have compiled a list of a few things I believe, as the entertainment editor, students should take advantage of while they attend Lyndon, as well as things they should avoid. 

I can honestly say to my readers that not everything this school, CAB, or clubs put on is worth attending, but there are a few hidden gems. 

First let me start off with hypnotists.  I have attended two hypnotist shows during my time at Lyndon, and both times, I wish I didn't go.  While it is cool to see people dance around pretend they are monkeys or goats or whatever they might be, it's kind of sad to see adults (yes, I refer to students here at LSC adults) pretending to be hypnotized when everyone knows what they are doing. 

Both times I have been to the hypnotist, I was severely disappointed due to the lack of enthusiasm on the performers part, as well as the blatant acting by some of the students.  I would steer clear of the hypnotist shows. 

Soccer, Baseball, Hockey, rugby and Basketball are all sports I would suggest going to watch.  There is no better way to support your school and friends than by going and cheering them on while they take on other schools.

 Lyndon does have a lot of school pride, believe it or not, and there have always been quality turnouts for sporting events.  As an athlete myself, there is no better feeling than seeing the bleachers full of fellow students cheering you on. 

Students should, if they can, take advantage of a bus trip sponsored by CAB, either to New York, Providence,  Boston, or wherever they go.  

I recently attended for the second time, a bus trip to a New Hampshire Fisher Cats game in Manchester, and boy, was it fun.  Free food, good people, a baseball game; what is better than that?

CAB and the LSC Hockey team put on, twice a year, a free skate for students.  It is completely free, and a great place to hang out with friends.  As a hockey player, I have attended this even since I came here, and I'm certainly glad I did. 

It is great to see 100+ students skating around, having a blast, participating in a limbo contest, and enjoying every minute.  This is one event I would emphatically encourage students to attend. 

 I can understand why some students would attend this next event, but I find it absolutely pointless, and have only attended this event once in my career here at Lyndon. 

Wednesday night movies are probably the most pointless event on campus.  I find it very silly to spend a Tuesday night sitting in the theater watching a movie with 50 other students that are talking and giggling, while spending 50 cents on popcorn that is dry and not worth the buy.
