It\'s been a long, hard winter. But if this weather\'s good for anything it\'s producing great skiing conditions. And so last motzei shabbos almost 40 guys boarded a bus at 1:30 A.M. and headed for the slopes of Killington, VT for a student government-subsidized ski trip. The lodge opened as the bus pulled in at 7 A.M., and we davened and ate breakfast before taking our skis and snowboards to the mountain. As the first ones on the lift, one gondola had an impromptu kumsitz on the way up. Some guys mastered moguls, others black diamonds and most of us wore snow-covered ski masks by mid-morning. It was a happy, weary group that gathered back at the lodge for mincha and dinner after the lift closed, and  after boarding the bus, we promptly fell asleep.

The cold is unrelenting, but we refused to let it put a damper on our Purim celebration. We got off to a rollicking start, barely waiting for alumnus Melech Berlove to finish reading the Megillah on Motzei Shabbos before breaking into spirited dancing in the Beis. While the cafeteria was being set up for the chagigah, students took to the streets of Kew Gardens Hills, dancing, singing and collecting tzedakah. Over the course of the week we raised a few thousand dollars for members of the community who could use a little help.

Last night LCM student enjoyed “extreme bingo” and it was really sweet. Played with candy instead of bingo chips, it was truly a challenge to not eat the markers and make it to Bingo. For those that held out, there were tons of prizes, including nerf guns, clothing, and of course, candy. For those that couldn’t, there was still great food – pizza, sushi, and the candy bingo markers.

As the last days of Sukkot wound down, we caught up with four Lander College for Men students who just started their LCM experience with the Fall 2018 semester, to discuss their aspirations and goals for their college experiences. The four students hail from New York, Georgia, New Jersey, and Maryland and while each student had a different reason for choosing LCM, each spoke of how they wanted to balance a rigorous academic curriculum with an equally rigorous yeshiva experience.  As Ariel Bergman summed it up, “I wanted a place where I could get a really strong education to set me up to pursue a career, but also grow in my Torah learning.”
