Elephants in Boise

Although I live on campus during the school year, in the summer I still call Boise home. Luckily, most of my friends are also from the Treasure Valley, and they stick around for the summer.  On Saturday, I met up with three of my C of I friends to stroll through Boise’s Saturday Market and to see a circus parade complete with two elephants.  

Why I am so important (Because I am from a different country)

So recently in my trips around campus, I came across the news that we are getting a sizable amount of international students for this coming year. On talking to our Dean of Enrollment, Brian, (Actually, I am going to go on a tangent here, but I love the fact that I can just walk unannounced into the offices of anyone while they are around. The small college atmosphere is refreshing after going to schools with systems more rigid then the doors of Fort Knox.

Meanwhile, in Boston...

In my last post, I mentioned that I write for C of I’s student newspaper, The Coyote.  Our Editor in Chief, Danielle Blenker, landed a summer internship in Boston with Charlesbridge Publishing. And it just so happens that she’s chronicling it via her own blog, defyinggravityboston.blogspot.com. Check it out—you already know she has to be a good writer.

Top 5 Things I Miss About C of I After One Month Apart

I’m Megan Mizuta, and I’m yours for the next year.  That is, I’ll be one of your student bloggers for the upcoming school year—here to connect you with the C of I community and its goings-on. 

An explanation for all the strange earlier posts; I am exceptionally well rounded

So as previously promised, here is an explanation on why I have been going off the deep end and have been posting photos of rocks and rabbits. I could just explain it in a line, or I could do it in a drawn out manner, allowing me to prove my prowess with the English language. The second method it is gonna be.

Cute Bunny Photos, and Photos of Rocks

So a few weeks ago, In the chicken coop, I discovered baby rabbits. In 3 weeks time, those creatures transformed from small naked mole rat look alikes to cute balls of fur. Here are some pictures:

Also, I have started making  a sculpture, if you would call it that, in my front yard. Here again, are some pictures:

Wanna Jump into the Jump Creek?

One of the things that I like about spending summer here in Caldwell is that fact that I am answerable to no one, but myself. Normally, this kind of a situation would lead to wild shenanigans and escapades that would rival those fictionalised on the silver screen. However, being a UWC (United World Colleges) alumni, and now studying here at C of I, I have pretty much lived on my own for the last four years. I like to think that I am much more sedate now, and most of my activities are more productive.

I Will Post Enigmatic Statements to Intrigue You. All The Time.

So my name is Rahul Sharma, and this year, I will be a junior at The College of Idaho. I am a Fine Art major (a really fancy title for someone who spends a lot of money and ends up with the same skill set as a graffiti artist or a house painter). I feel necessary to give y'all a brief introduction, just to put things in perspective. I am from Kashmir, which, depending upon your political, cultural and national affiliation is either a part of India, Pakistan, China or Taiwan.

Goodbye, C of I!

I did it!  I graduated!  It was pretty surreal to walk through campus in a cap and gown, only to realize that it would be my last time as a student.  

Thank You!

The summer is about to begin and I am super excited! But before reading, sleeping and relaxing time for three months I would like to take this opportunity to give a few thank you’s for this year.
