Freshmen, beware…

To the freshmen:

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.

What brings us together…

This last weekend was the ten year anniversary of 9/11, one of the most tragic events in our history. I remember I was in the 3rd grade when this happened, and I had no idea what was going on. I felt so lost and confused that day, until my parents sat me down and explained what had really happened. I remember wondering who would be evil enough to do something like that to an entire country. That was the day America became united.

Blessed by a Post-Rock Bassist

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 had an interesting weekend; a lot of strange, scary, and cool experiences not directly related to C of I happened that fall generally under my winding yarn that makes up my tale in college.

Finding Ways… It’s Easy

Some of you might have been thinking where have I been. Admittedly, I’ve been around, but had a hard time writing. You see, writing isn’t something that you just do. I have a tendency of writing about some things I’m passionate about more frequently than others. As far as a passion goes, well, it comes and goes. Not to despair, as you continue reading, you not only will learn about something I am passionate about, but also about to how sustain your passions amidst a very busy college life here on our great campus.

Planting a Life in College

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…

Inside the Shelter

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.

Big Bird Memories

Last night I attended the school year’s first “Late Night”.  It always falls on Tuesday nights at 9 pm in KAIC, and I always leave a little less stressed than when I entered.

College Dorm Life

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.

Happy Labor Day…not

Bummed about not having today off of school?  You’re not alone.  However, you will soon realize that there are some serious benefits to our school’s tradition of not recognizing most weekday holidays in favor of the week-long mid-semester break.

The Spice of Greek Life

I’m back in Caldwell. I still haven’t unpacked the majority of my stuff, but I’m already enveloped in the warm, soupy mess of people, easy-mac, and porch-talks. Being “home” has allowed my mind to drift back into its usual cycles. A lot of that means the re-emergence of thoughts generally focused around one of my obligations as a Delt: recruitment.I serve on my chapter’s recruitment committee as its chair. I oversee the general activities of our chapter in regards to this vital process, and draft most of the plans for the events we hold when freshmen are interested in rushing.
