We’re a day away from Thanksgiving, and indications include the appearance of the “Pilgrim Panini” in the Caf and an abundance of canned food drives. The C of I Thanksgiving break is only a few days long, but it’s not too much of a downer, as we’re off for Christmas break just two weeks after Thanksgiving.
Fall Fling was just a couple of months ago and I am pretty sure we still remember the outstanding performances by Andy O, Axiom and The Armada ID. Well, I spent some time in my freshman year with some of those guys and it is incredible what they have achieved. Let me tell you why;
Usually, I am really excited for the first snow. Growing up in Utah, we got quite a lot of snow, so now that I live in relatively-snow-free Caldwell (at least until January), I get even more excited. But this year, alas, I was not excited to see that blanket of white upon the grass in Boise.
November has really been plugging along, hasn’t it? All the weeks since the end of fall break seem to have passed by at a breakneck, Usain Bolt-like pace, to the point that Thanksgiving is less than a week away. Every day in my classes after I write the day’s date at the top of my notes, I always just stare at that steadily increasing number, as if glaring at it hard enough would magically shift the month back a week.
I’m killing two birds with one stone (or simply “multi-tasking” if you are against avian violence) for this week’s entry, readers. For my Intro to Theatre class I needed to write an analysis of C of I’s fall production, Baby with the Bathwater.
It's been 8 weeks of school here at C of I and I've had one of the best times of my life. I've made some great friends, had some crazy times and learned a lot. Halloween was awesome, bowling night was a ton of fun, and the Yote Fam cheer section at the NNU game was crazy to be a part of.
If you’ve ever driven to the College of Idaho, chances are you were on the Boulevard at one point or another. The Boulevard, officially named Caldwell Boulevard, borders the College on its northern side, and serves as the main artery that flows between Caldwell and Nampa.
Welcome to the second installment of Dos and Don'ts, the monthly series in which I impart the wisdom I've gathered over 4 and a half semesters of college life to you, the reader. Don't worry, it's a lot more fun than it sounds.
The hottest topic right now with the International Student Organization is the annual Cultural Show. This is the biggest event that the ISO hosts and the preparations for it this year are absolutely incredible.
A habit I have developed in my time here at C of I is writing down things that professors say. Yes, I know, everyone takes notes, but these are more random, weird and funny quotes that I will remember for a very long time.
Because I’m majoring in political economy, these are all quotes from the POE professors, but I think they’re quite hilarious. I’ve spent a lot of time collecting these (plus it makes class go a lot faster!), so here are some of my favorites:
“We are all, in other words, prostitutes.” – Hunter (he's famous for this one)
