Thai food and fun with the Honors Program

Friday night, students in Dr. McMahon’s Honors Systematic Theology I and Dr. Sharbaugh’s Honors First Theology classes gathered for a night of food, fellowship and culture. 

We traveled to Squirrel Hill to eat dinner at Curry on Murray, a Thai restaurant on Murray Avenue.  For some, it was a first-time experience trying Thai cuisine.  We tried dumplings and crab rangoon, and most ordered the classic Pad Thai dish for dinner.

In movies, there are always different groups of cliques that are portrayed. In most cases, there would be the jocks, the nerds, the cheerleaders, the preps, the Goths or even the foreign exchange students all sitting together excluding anyone who doesn't fit the criteria of the group. These same types of cliques can often be seen in high school cafeterias.
