Fall 2010 was an exciting semester for the Phoenix group!  The news that Maseeh will open in Fall 2011 raised the energy level among Phoenicians and inspired us all to work hard to ensure that Maseeh is the best place it can be.  Though we put forth a lot of mind power and hard work at a retreat and at PHEC (Phoenix Group Executive) meetings, it was not all work and no play. We had a lot of fun together around the dorm and beyond and its our fun side that really shows who we are as a community.
