The Best Event on Campus

This is top secret information.  I wasn't going to tell anyone, but I discovered a little known fact about C of I...

A year full of memories

Well here it comes; the end of the year. Students were packing up their rooms and heading home all last week. Cleaning out the dorms is a passage. Just like “striking” a set at the end of a show is to help you put away the memories and help you move on, moving out of the dorms for the summer is a way of reminiscing on the past year and packing up those memories and moving on.

Side Stepping Hobo-Fights

Looking back on my last two years at The College of Idaho, I feel a lot of gratitude.  Not only do we have a beautiful, active, friendly campus, we also have an incredibly safe campus.  Never once have I felt threatened or scared, or remotely in danger, which is pretty unbelievable considering I’m skipping through what is considered the city of Caldwell. But really, The College of Idaho has done a wonderful job in putting up some seemingly magic, invisible walls which protect the campus from all sorts of funky danger stuff.

Glammed Up

Everyone knows that the best part about a school dance is not the free Panda Express, the sweet venue in downtown Boise, or the charismatic DJ’s (although those things never go unnoticed)… All that anyone really cares about, and remembers for that matter, is getting dressed up, curled, and glossed with the girls!

Moving on

This is the only bag I'm taking to China.

The only one. It's pretty much packed, all the clothes I'll be wearing, the daypack that I'll be using to walk around with. Almost all of my clothes are synthetic so I could wash them in a river if I needed to. We got our itinerary for our trip this week. It's crazy to see our journey mapped out, and today I've never felt so excited. I just have to order a book that I plan on reading while I'm over there. Otherwise I'm set.

I've eaten so many viruses over the past week

They make these bracelets for anything. 

This is what my nurse gave me so I'd remember to take my typhoid vaccine every other day. I took a pill each morning, filled with a nice dose of living Typhoid to tango with my immune system. I finished the course today. Hoping that it sticks.

Full Bloom

In addition to the dozens of trees full of white and pink flowers, something else blossoms in the spring here at The College of Idaho: Greek life.

Teaching Coyotes to Swim: Academic Conferences and Building Ties

Things on my mind:

1. I leave for China in 26 days

2. I have an issue paper due in two weeks, a presentation due tomorrow, Initiation for my Fraternity this weekend

3. I have to finish registering for my classes next year 

4. Not sure where I’m living for Fall...

ResLife Hwy Clean-up

"How does Chinden Blvd. look so well kept?" you may ask... Well, your RA's clean it up, of course!  Three times a year, the trusty College of Idaho Residence Life staff put on their neon armour and gloves to conquer the trash that is littered along a section of Chinden Blvd. here in Caldwell.
