In this installment, we will be focusing on the Tufflepuffs who are more esteemed and knowledgeable, due to the fact that all of them have already graduated from college.
First up is the lovely Michael Sanders. In the beginning of the summer, Mike graduated college and entered the real world. As a real person, Mike has been working as a server at Nebo Restaurant and bar, which was recently voted one of the top restaurants in Boston, in order to save up money for his time in the Peace Corps. Mike will be leaving for the Peace Corps between January and March and will most likely be placed somewhere in East Africa. He will most likely be doing health or environmental work. Until he leaves, Mike plans on continuing working at Nebo, hanging with his friends, and playing quidditch. Although he still hasn't decided what team he wants to play for now that his time playing for Tufts Quidditch has come to a close.
Next up is one of our lovely graduate students, Samantha Snyder. Sam is one of only three graduated students who have played for Tufts quidditch, and like most graduate students, her time is focused mostly on her studies. Thus far this summer, she has just been working on research and playing softball for the Psychology department team. She is currently home in Orlando and will definitely be visiting Wizarding World of Harry Potter! She may also be going on a Disney cruise at the end of the month. Her only other plan is to attend her cousin's wedding in Wisconsin in August. We hope her time in Florida is magical!
Last up is the one and only Ethan Sturm. Our resident old married man, Ethan has been spending his summer doing exactly what he did while he was at Tufts: working in the PR department. He has also continued working on his site, The Eighthman, where he records a podcast with fellow Tufflepuff, Noah Schwartz. He continues to make promises about writing more articles that he never fulfills.
Ethan has also spent the summer working on his quidditch skills, as shown in the picture to the left. He has been conditioning all summer and even learned how to do a squat for the first time. He has also been attending fantasy tournaments all over the Northeast. Thus far, he has failed to defend his Canada Fantasy title. He will attempt to garner a championship victory at Champagne this weekend and is gathering his forces to attempt to reclaim the Northeast Fantasy title from Michael "Yada" Parada. Best of luck to you, Ethan.
That's all for this installment.
