I love checking my mail at the College. I could have most of my mail be sent to my house where I live, but it’s just more satisfying having to use your own special key to unlock your box. It proves much more of a rewarding sensation when something comes in the mail, like today when I signed for a t-shirt that I had ordered from DesignByHumans.com arrived. The mail staff is always super friendly and quick. I had a funny moment as I signed my name to receive my package when the attendant on duty asked me about my last name (I feel bad, because she knew my name but I still don’t know hers.
Academic Resources on Campus. The first time I heard about them was during my first campus tour; and to be honest I kind of tossed that information aside. Thankfully, however, during my Student Ambassador training I was reminded again of the academic resources offered on campus; such as tutoring in certain areas that you are struggling with, proofreading papers, and help with student resumesl!
Things are going smoothly for the most part. It's the middle of week 3 of Spring term. One of the more defining aspects of this term for me is the fact that I'm not enrolled in one of my classes. As a student, that is. This term I'm serving as an aide to Professor Minear, chair of the psychology department and a teacher who I can say is one of my largest mentors on the campus.
I was occupying my time one night by perusing the Internet, when I found a link on Facebook. It led to a website called Kickstarter, highlighting a project by my friend and fellow C of I student, Katy Stewart.
Certain moments leave a tremendous impact on your life that forever change the way you perceive the world.
For me this event occurred during Winter Break. Winter Break is an amazing time of year C of I students are blessed with that many other schools do not have. Therefore, when you are visiting your friends from other schools during Winter Break you can rub it in their face! :)
Finney happens to have total kick-a ResLife staff (RA’s, Hall directors, etc). We are always indulging in their latest hall-programs and fun activities. I am always so impressed with their creativity and reliability. You go, Glen CoCo. I mean team. Thanks for making dorm life so memorable!
Picture: Case in Point! We have a hall program for Valentine’s Day—it doesn’t get cuter than that! <3
One of the things that I like about our school is its efforts to foster some elements of sustainability with its daily consumption, whether it be through energy conservation or though its work with Bon Appetit to provide local food options. Since I was in high school, my mom has been a prodidgious locavore, shopping for organic and local foods whenever she can. She turned her entire back yard into a garden and raises chickens for their eggs which she eats and sells.
