Let me be the last to fill you in. Midterms are here… Say whatttt?! Six weeks have come and left, and my oh my did that go fast. And I thought freshman year was a blur… Luckily, us students have a week full of tests, papers, and quizzes to ground us every six weeks. Most students are running off of large quantities of sugar, a caffeinated beverage, or sheer anxiety. Personally, I have just recently found my fix amidst this hectic time:
So, a natural part of going to a college is a general commitment to paying student fees. These funds go into accounts run both by student government and the Office of Student Affairs, where it’s used in hosting and designing activities and programs specifically for the use by the students.
Our campus is a hot spot. I mean, it is really bumpin’.
There are always ample events and activities taking place, hosted by both the school and the community. We students are always running from one end of the campus to the other. Little did I know, however, that there is a world outside of Caldwell, Idaho between September and May! (Say whatttt?!?)
Seriously! Have a look for yourself… I haven’t been wasting any time this year in exploring the world beyond the quad…
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.

I’m writing this post on Tuesday, and I’m expecting it to be published maybe by Friday of this week. I know I said I’d talk about my classes in my next post, but I have more interesting things that happened.

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.
A big welcome to the Class of 2015 and all returning fellow Yotes! After leaving the Club Fair tonight, I was thinking about how great our campus is.

I know that the other bloggers and I have written a lot about what we love about our school, but it’s time to hear from you! Let’s start a conversation about what we appreciate most about C of I.
