The Bus

If you have driven on the highways in New England, you may have seen the huge Saint Michael's College bus cruising around.  It is a large coach bus with a huge SMC athletics decal on the side.  One of the times that I visited Saint Mike's while I was still looking, I was driving up 95 in CT and I saw the bus going in the other direction.  It is really cool to see it driving down the road, even before I decided to come here.

Lately, I haven't been just seeing it from afar, I have been practically living on the bus. This year we have been on the bus for about 44 hours in total.  We have made trips to Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Long Island.  Lucky for us and all the other athletic teams at SMC, the bus is really nice.  It has pretty much everything we need.  Some of the perks of the bus include but are not limited to: TVs with DVD players, nice reclining seats, book lights, wifi, and a bathroom.  Needless to say, the bus is super classy and we are lucky to have it.

Since we have had so much time on the bus, we have taken a lot of pictures (of course) so here are some of the ways that the SMC Softball team uses the bus:

Everyone on the bus and ready to go!

Beth doing homework and using the wifi.
Greer being a sleepy-head.  

Lindsay is super excited to get going.  She also loves coffee. 

On our trip to Long Island, we got a great view of the NYC sky-line.  You can sort of see it in this picture.

The best thing about this post? I wrote it on the bus. We are on our way to Saint Anselm's for our last away games.  Wish us luck!


  1. I have to try my university's hopper bus to see if it has the same cool features you've described. I doubt it will, though. :(
