Alumni representing classes from 1979 through 2016 returned to Pratt Rink on January 8th for the annual alumni hockey game. The contest was tied at 3 after one period but the young legs of the more recent graduates propelled them to a comfortable lead after the second period. The veteran alumni were undeterred, however, and staged a furious third period comeback to pull within one goal before eventually losing 12-10. It was a fun skate which featured some quality play, and the group gathered...

All new students at Middlesex participate in an Introduction to Mindfulness course.  Mindfulness can be summed up as “inner education.” Mindfulness practice helps us in understanding and training our attention, learning to relate to thoughts, emotions, and feelings in a more skillful way, becoming aware of the habits of our own mind, learning how to better connect with others, and developing more awareness of our relationship with our environment.

While exam week was certainly a time when our students got down to some serious work, there were also plenty of activities around campus for anyone in need of a fun and relaxing study break.  Some students grabbed lunch with their advisor at their favorite local restaurant, while others stopped by the hot chocolate bar offered in the Deans’ Office. Our rink had open hours in the afternoon for any student looking to skate off some restlessness, and students also practiced Mindfulness to help...
