We Gotta Fight for Our Right to…Fight?

The first (and only) rule about Fight Night, readers, is do not talk about Fight Night. Otherwise, you’re going to end up looking in a box with Gwyneth Paltrow’s head in it.

Wait, no. Sorry. I’m mixing up my Brad Pitt movie references. Seriously, though, you are not supposed to talk about Fight Night.

So, naturally, we’re going to talk about Fight Night (I know. I’m ever the rabble-rouser. I blame public schools and violent video games.).

My Friends Are Getting Married?!

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to watch one of my best friends marry the girl of his dreams. And I mean it seriously, too; he was dreaming of this day way before she even agreed to date him in the first place. I've known Jordan (the one in the dapper suit on the left) since the 4th grade, so I know a bit better than most that even when he was dating someone else through the majority of high school, Megan (the blushing bride on the right) was always the one he was most serious about wanting to settle down with.

A Very Yotie Christmas

It’s crunch time, readers. The last hurdle. The semester’s crescendo. The final frontier.

Finals week starts today and it’s taking a toll on all of us. The stress and tension the whole campus is experiencing is causing an eerie, hushed mood to fall over everything.

And frankly, I do not care for it. Not a bit.

Parties Aplenty

My week has been so crazy that somebody might need to call me a doctor.

Or, you know, 11.

Holiday Responsibility

We’re a day away from Thanksgiving, and indications include the appearance of the “Pilgrim Panini” in the Caf and an abundance of canned food drives. The C of I Thanksgiving break is only a few days long, but it’s not too much of a downer, as we’re off for Christmas break just two weeks after Thanksgiving.

8 week slump

It's been 8 weeks of school here at C of I and I've had one of the best times of my life. I've made some great friends, had some crazy times and learned a lot. Halloween was awesome, bowling night was a ton of fun, and the Yote Fam cheer section at the NNU game was crazy to be a part of.

Dos and Don'ts: Laundry Day

Welcome to the second installment of Dos and Don'ts, the monthly series in which I impart the wisdom I've gathered over 4 and a half semesters of college life to you, the reader. Don't worry, it's a lot more fun than it sounds.

The 2013 Cultural Show

The hottest topic right now with the International Student Organization is the annual Cultural Show. This is the biggest event that the ISO hosts and the preparations for it this year are absolutely incredible.  

Subway, Spandex and Spirit

There is nothing that brings the C of I family together quite like free sandwiches. That, along with the hope that we might just see someone get hit in the face by a leather-bound canon going 50 mph and we have ourselves one exciting Saturday night.

The Lady Yotes geared up for a match against Salem, Oregon’s Corban University. The winner would be granted a lifetime subscription to Cat Fancy magazine and the loser would get…I don’t know. This joke sort of got away from me readers. I apologize. I’ll be sharper with my comedic skills next week.

Something Wicked This Way Comes

Rev up your broomsticks, practice your ghoulish wails, and put your dentist on speed dial, ladies and gentleman, because it’s Halloween and things are about to get a whole lot of weird.

I had class today with Miley Cyrus. So already, that’s a little bit abnormal for my regular Thursdays. And there was a ghost there, but that wasn’t unusual. If horror movies have taught me anything, it’s that colleges are the ideal ghost hang-outs. And, Gregory is cool and kind of keeps to himself, so everyone is pretty okay with him.
