On Saturday evening, Nov. 12, Prof. Alyssa DeBlasio and Morgan Hall residents watched an episode of the TLC reality show “My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding” and discussed some stereotypes and misconceptions held about the Roma people (commonly referred to as “Gypsies”) across Europe. The event was organized by Nealy Harnsberger, a Russian and Spanish double major, as well as an R.A. in Morgan Hall. While watching and discussing the show, residents enjoyed food from Euro Burger: downtown Carlisle’s Bosnian restaurant.
“I think that overall it was a great event and a good way for students and faculty to come together in an informal setting. I liked having Campus Life and the Russian Department joining together to host an event, and I definitely think we should do something again in the future.” – Nealy Harnsberger ’13
