A lot of things have happened in the Bubble over the summer. Here is just a short list of some of the more newsworthy things that didn’t make it into an article.

•With the biological threat of the swine flu behind us, the greet line returned to handshakes, not the fist bumps that the class of 2013 endured.

•Brown Science Center underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation.

•Clay Hall underwent a partial renovation; the renovation will be completed next summer.

•The Rafskeller has been upgraded. Two eateries now stand in its place: Sub Connection and World of Wings. The 1780 Café is now Sandella’s. Read Alex Cheser’s food column to find out more!

•Sixty-five students moved onto campus early this year to participate in a service-based preorientation program. A new preorientation program, Community Learning and Sustainability Students, joined the First-year Urban Program, Jump Start, Rising through Education and Disciples Orientation into Transy.

•Another preorientation program, Quick Start, was added to help select students acclimate to the academic aspect of Transy.

•The Princeton Review ranked Transy No. 1 in the nation for its Greek life. This comes after Transy went a year without a dedicated staff member to Greek affairs. Stay tuned for the next issue of The Rambler to find out more.
