October came and went, and it’s time to really settle into Fall. But how do you do that?
During Fall Break I swung over to Tacoma for a nice breather, and made sure to bring scarves, boots, and coats back to Idaho… I am cozy and I am still wondering how on earth to cope with this ‘Fall’ concept. I love the change of weather, the colorful leaves, yes, the crisp wind…
But what is there to do? The nights are getting too chilly to loiter around campus or in someone’s backyard… The days are too chaotic with students up to their ears in classwork to enjoy a friend in the quad…
It’s fall break here at The College. I’ve spent most of this week lounging at my house, watching a lot of movies and catching up on reading. So seeing that this week has a bit of downtime to it regarding college activities, I thought I’d share a bit of one of my past experiences at The College.
There are a lot of reasons why I came to The College of Idaho. Naturally, now that I’ve been here for a few years, I have even more reasons why I couldn’t bear to leave.
Whew! I'm glad that’s over. You know what I’m talking about: Midterm week. That was intense! Yes, I am sure many of my fellow bloggers have stated otherwise (no offense to them; I love them dearly), but I am a dramatic freshman; and for me it was a very intense, stressful, midterm week.
I’ll be honest here – I was in a funk for a little while. I’m sure I won’t get many sympathy votes now, but I have a very unusual class schedule this semester. I only have class Tuesday and Wednesday nights. (Yes, I’m taking 12 credits, but 9 of them are on these nights, and 3 are independent.) As a senior, most would consider this to be one of the perks, but I find it somewhat troubling.
You know how everyone tells you that there are so many things going on campus? And how there is no possible way you won’t have anything to do on campus? Well what happens if everything is scheduled when you are not available? The minute you become available, nothing is going on, or worse, nothing is open. It seems like everything I want to do, such as our hall program tie dye party or the caramel apple party, is always scheduled around when I am not available. It’s like everyone knows my schedule and secretly makes sure to schedule everything so that I will not be able to attend. :) JK.
I had a busy week. Nothing especially stood out, just your typical 5th week of school. Typical means: Greek Week, Humans vs Zombies, job training, and research presentations.
Humans vs Zombies started again on our campus last Sunday. This round we had 125 players, and by the first day we had over 40 zombies roaming the campus looking for fellow Coyote brains. HvZ is an apocalyptic-themed game of tag, with human players attempting to survive as long as they can before being tagged by zombies. For usually around 2 weeks, the campus is filled with a little extra energy as
Literally. Not only is it Human vs Zombies week here at The College of Idaho, but it is also flu season. It is kind of like the game Humans vs Zombies, someone starts off with the disease and once that person touches someone else it starts to spread. It’s a little more technical than that, but you get my point.
You know how much I love the cafeteria. But sometimes, I just feel like I need to get out of our bubble and have some of my own culinary adventures. Here are some of the top Caldwell eateries which earn the votes of your C of I peers - based on quality, price, and experience – we approve.
I’m in college. A conversation with two or more people can’t last too long without it eventually turning towards Jimmy Stewart or Harry Potter.
I read the series. I’m familiar with all the Potter lore. I hated the movies. People (girls) rag on me all the time about this. I hate them. But the great thing about talking about these teenage wizards is that it’s easy to draw a lot of lines between the fantasy of Hogwarts and our campus.
