Weekend Activities

Rex kitePeople always ask what Exonians do for fun, and it truly depends on who you are asking. Some prefer leisurely activities like strolling through the park, some enjoy mountain biking in the woods, and others love to sit at a coffee shop and read all day. One of my dorm mates and I, however, decided to do something a little more exciting this Saturday. Because the wind was howling, we carried his gigantic kite to the school’s soccer field and flew it around. The kite has more than a five square meter surface area, so whenever a gust came we would go flying into the air. In the picture you can see my friend soaring over me, without jumping at all. It was an exhilarating experience, and something that I would have a hard time taking part in any where else. That is what I love about Exeter- if you live with your friends, no matter what you will always find fun and fascinating things to do.

About Rex

My name is Rex, and I am the head blogger for Big Red Bloggers! I am a senior from Washington DC, and this is my fourth year at Exeter. In the dorm, I am a proctor, which is kind of like a student leader for the dorm. On campus, I am the squash captain, I play the first spot on varsity tennis, I play trumpet for the concert band as well as piano on my own. I am also a member of the Discipline Committee, which oversees cases in which students (rarely) break one of the school's major rules. Two of my passions here are being a news editor for The Exonian, our school newspaper, and being a member of Student Council. I was a grade representative two years ago, and last year I was a dorm representative. With my spare time, I love hanging out with friends, playing frisbee in the park, or hosting a radio show with my two friends each week.
