First, let me apologize for the title of this post. Second, I apologize that I didn’t live up to my promise of updating with an “much more important and relevant post” tomorrow — clearly tomorrow has come and gone, but that post is still coming (obviously, this isn’t it).
But hey! This is newsworthy too! Us lucky Oxy students are being given the opportunity to try some corn, fresh from President Prager’s farm near Sacramento. This is going on on Wednesday night, October 24. Fresh Presidential corn (that could be so misinterpreted) is going to be available in the marketplace that night at dinner.
Better yet though, we get the opportunity to husk it the corn ourselves. As the hand-out puts it: “Be a part of the farm to school experience and help prep the corn for dinner!”.
Now, I know that there are many people out there who don’t feel that corn husking is not exactly up their alley — but, come on, how amusing is it going to be to see people spending their lunchtimes down in the quad husking their own corn? Many people might be surprised that there is more to food than driving to the supermarket.
This program is put on by UEPI and, obviously, President Prager as a “harvest festival”. This seems like a good way for us Oxy students to find out more about our President, and to connect with her a little bit more. Even if it is over corn.
