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.
This last weekend was the ten year anniversary of 9/11, one of the most tragic events in our history. I remember I was in the 3rd grade when this happened, and I had no idea what was going on.

I remember wondering who would be evil enough to do something like that to an entire country. That was the day America became united.
Some of you might have been thinking where have I been. Admittedly, I’ve been around, but had a hard time writing. You see, writing isn’t something that you just do. I have a tendency of writing about some things I’m passionate about more frequently than others. As far as a passion goes, well, it comes and goes. Not to despair, as you continue reading, you not only will learn about something I am passionate about, but also about to how sustain your passions amidst a very busy college life here on our great campus.
Feeling down about your homework load? In need of a pick-me-up? Well before you head to McCain for a Redbull…plant something green in your room! There are plenty of benefits to adding a house plant in your living space. Here are the top five reasons to bring a plant into your room…
Bummed about not having today off of school? You’re not alone. However, you will soon realize that there are some serious benefits to our school’s tradition of not recognizing most weekday holidays in favor of the week-long mid-semester break.
I’m back in Caldwell. I still haven’t unpacked the majority of my stuff, but I’m already enveloped in the warm, soupy mess of people, easy-mac, and porch-talks. Being “home” has allowed my mind to drift back into its usual cycles. A lot of that means the re-emergence of thoughts generally focused around one of my obligations as a Delt: recruitment.I serve on my chapter’s recruitment committee as its chair. I oversee the general activities of our chapter in regards to this vital process, and draft most of the plans for the events we hold when freshmen are interested in rushing.
