Shake off that sticky summer sweat! Autumn is the perfect season for an urban safari. Have a picnic in Prospect Park, then check out what all the cute, fuzzy, scaly, feathery animals at the zoo are up to. Or, hop across the street and stroll through the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens (free for BC students!) and see what fall has in store for nature's finest. Go jogging through Cobble Hill, or don your skinniest skinny jeans and check out the Williamsburg Waterfront. They might have pumpkins at your local Key Food or Met Supermarket, so pick out the ugliest one and give it a make-over. Once you've had all the outdoorsy fun you can handle, grab a burrito and explore this week's Boylan Blog, loaded as usual with food for thought from Brooklyn College's most interesting interns. First and foremost, some stimulating announcements:
1) Making Work Visible writing contest. Open to all CUNY undergrads. The deadline isn't until January 2012, but be sure to visit http://www.lehman.edu/academics/arts-humanities/AHlaboressay.php for more details.
2) The Poetry Club. The Poetry Club will have its first meeting on October 11th during common hours in 2307 Boylan.
Now, go get 'em, tiger!
