Saint Mary’s juniors gave their moms a glimpse into their college lives during this past weekend with the college’s annual Junior Moms Weekend. The weekend began Friday with a reception, where juniors and their moms received a t-shirt with the slogan “I got it from my momma.”Later that night, moms and daughters participated in karaoke night at O’Rourke’s Public House on Eddy Street, junior Meredith Mackowicz said. “Karaoke is always fun, and this weekend was no exception, even though it was packed everyone had a great time,” Mackowicz said.For junior Brianna Foley, her favorite part of the weekend was karaoke.“It was a fun and relaxed time with our moms. Moms and daughters were able to mingle with each other and sing to some good songs,” Foley said.The next day, juniors and their moms could shop and browse clothing at a trunk show, which included brands such as Beyond Zen, Gina Marie Skincare and Vintage Charm, class council representative senior Delaney Gilbert said. Gilbert helped plan the weekend.Mackowicz said introducing her mom to her friends at school was a unique opportunity.“When I was in high school, all of my friends’ families knew each other, and were able to connect and form friendships with one another, and I think parents weekends are a great way to do that,” she said. ”Plus, with [Saint Mary’s] being an all women’s college, it’s important to show love to the strong women who raised us, because we wouldn’t be who we are without them.”Saturday also included a mass and dinner at the Hilton Garden Inn, which concluded the weekend.“I wish it went through Sunday, just because I’m always up for more time with my mom. But, for the price we pay, I think a final Sunday brunch with the moms would be awesome, even if it was just DH,” Mackowicz said. Mackowicz said attending mass with her mom was a good opportunity to bond and reflect.“It was just a really special experience. It was nice to take a little break and be thankful for such a good weekend together,” she said.Foley said she enjoyed letting her mom peek into her life as a college student. “I think it is a good time for moms to come to see their children at school, the school to appreciate students’ parents and a good time for parents to meet other students’ parents,” she said. “My mom really was able to see what it was like to be a Belle this weekend.”Tags: Junior Moms Weekend, parents, saint mary’s
Warren acknowledged in her video that she’s had differences with Biden over the years but said he’d always been respectful of her views and even willing to adopt new policies if the argument is persuasive enough.“When you disagree, he’ll listen — not just listen, but really hear you. And treat you with respect, no matter where you’re coming from,” she said. “And he has shown throughout this campaign that when you come up with new facts or a good argument, he’s not too afraid or too proud to be persuaded.”Soon after Warren dropped out of the race last month, Biden adopted her bankruptcy plan. It was a sign of goodwill in a dispute between the two that dates back to 2005, when Warren, then a Harvard Law School professor, battled the then-Delaware senator, who was opposed to some of the reforms that she was advocating.Warren said Biden mentioned the fight when he swore her into the Senate, telling her: “You gave me hell! And you’re gonna do a great job.”That, she said, is “the thing about Joe: he wants you in the fight with him. And when you’re in the fight with Joe at your side, you know you have a partner who’s committed to getting something good done for this country.”Senators Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin, and Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters, both of Wisconsin, also endorsed Biden Wednesday.Topics : Elizabeth Warren endorsed Joe Biden on Wednesday, becoming the final major former 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful to back the party’s presumptive nominee.“He knows that a government run with integrity, competence and heart will save lives and save livelihoods,” the Massachusetts senator said in an endorsement video. “And we can’t afford to let Donald Trump continue to endanger the lives and livelihoods of every American.”After Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, Warren was considered the most progressive of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. Her announcement came the same week the Biden campaign rolled out two other big-ticket endorsements: Sanders and former President Barack Obama.
