What: Soup & Serenity
Where: Kadampa Meditation Center Maryland
When: Wednesdays// 12:15-1:30 pm
We’ve all found ourselves needing a moment to stop what we’re doing, put everything down, and just breathe. Sometimes, it’s not easy to find the time for that, and even if we do, allowing ourselves to relax and distracting ourselves from all of our stresses can be nearly impossible. If you’re feeling that way right now, drop everything, and sign up for Soup & Serenity! The Kadampa Meditation Center holds a half an hour guided meditation class every Wednesday, followed by homemade soup, salad, and bread, served in the World Peace Café. It will give you a midweek break that will make the next couple of work days seem much less frustrating, and you’ll learn how to relax your mind when it just wants to keep running! Plus, who doesn’t love some hot soup? Namasté! Get your tickets here!

The Tewaaraton Award annually goes to the top men’s lacrosse player in the country, and now two Greyhounds are on watch for it.
Herreweyers joins his fellow attackman, Nikko Pontrello, on watch for the prestigious award. Herreweyers currently sits at No. 3 in the country in terms of goals with 29, and at No. 5 in the country for goals per game with an average of 3.63 per game.
The junior from Ontario has recorded five hat tricks so far this season, and has been named the Corvias Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week twice.
Herreweyers, Pontrello and the Hounds will try to shake off a tough loss to Georgetown when they face Lafayette on the road this Saturday.

WHERE: Ridley Athletic Complex
The Loyola Women’s Lacrosse shocked the college lacrosse world by upsetting No. 8 UVA on their home turf. The Hounds pulled off the overtime upset thanks to a heroic effort from senior Hannah Schmitt, who scored 3 goals in OT, making Loyola Superfans go, “Holy Schmitt!”
Loyola looks to carry that strong momentum back home on Saturday as they host the Lafayette Leopards to kick off their conference schedule.
The Hounds come into the game with a 2-4 record, having played in very close games thus far this season. This will be the Greyhounds’ second season in the Patriot League.
In their first Patriot League season, they went 8-0 in conference play, and beat the Leopards 22-12.
Come on out to Ridley this Saturday to cheer on the Hounds as they begin league play!
