It didn’t take much to entice Alison Rogers, ’25, to attend Roller Rinc, one of a flurry of neighborhood-sponsored events during spring quarter. “I skate almost every day,” says Rogers, who is majoring in symbolic systems and in theater and performance studies. “It’s my main way of getting around campus.” She landed some cool jumps; she met an ice skater trying to transfer her skills to asphalt. (“That was fun to watch.”) The vibe was casual, Rogers says. Good music, ice cream, a limbo stick, and friends just freewheeling.
