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.
Hayman is the ultimate stomping ground, and all of us here at the C of I are willing to admit it. We all had “the best floor,” “the best class,” “the best fishbowl” … yes, yes it’s true. However, there is something I must bring to your attention, and the sooner, the better.
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…
So it’s the second week of classes, and much like the rest of my fellow Yotes, I’m super busy with all of my classes. However, in a study of irony and spontaneity, I just got back from a game of Frisbee Golf around the campus, and now I’m settling into an evening of reading on the porch.
In my next post, I’ll talk a little bit about my classes, but today I’m going to take you inside the Delt Haus.
Today marks my first post with videos! My boss is cheering somewhere.
When I was a high school senior, I wondered what life was like in a college dorm. Naturally I asked around and “googled” it, and tried to learn more about what it would be like to live in a college dorm. Of course, nothing on Google prepared me for what I was about to encounter.
I’m here! All these weeks of planning have finally come to an end. It all started on a Sunday. After a sad round of goodbyes to everyone I love, I was off on a four hour drive to Caldwell, Idaho. It was a sad day. I was lucky enough to move in early because of a debate retreat, and even with the extra time, it took me around 12 hours and a couple of trips to Wal-Mart to settle down and have my room perfect.
It’s so close; I can smell it! College! The dorm life, the awesome campus events, the life changing classes; I cannot wait for this experience to begin! The countdown is beginning to come to an end, and by the end of this week, I will be making my next post as a college student. However, no matter how excited I am, I am still extremely stressed. So, because I hope this doesn’t happen to any other incoming freshman, here are some tips on what to do once school starts to sneak up on you.
I know that many students come to our campus while having a decent idea about how it looks like, and where the nice hang-out spots are at. But since approximately 10% of our students are international, they rarely develop such solid view of our beautiful campus.
Here are some of my favorite/memorable spots on campus:
