Blogger with the Bathwater

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.

The 2013 Cultural Show

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.

Harvey to campus Nov. 20 for the special guest lecture “The Transatlantic Sublime, Romanticism and the Hudson River School of Landscape Painting.” Harvey will speak at 3:30 p.m. in Boone Hall room 103 on the C of I campus in Caldwell.

Subway, Spandex and Spirit

There is nothing that brings the C of I family together quite like free sandwiches. That, along with the hope that we might just see someone get hit in the face by a leather-bound canon going 50 mph and we have ourselves one exciting Saturday night.

The Lady Yotes geared up for a match against Salem, Oregon’s Corban University. The winner would be granted a lifetime subscription to Cat Fancy magazine and the loser would get…I don’t know. This joke sort of got away from me readers. I apologize. I’ll be sharper with my comedic skills next week.

Something Wicked This Way Comes

Rev up your broomsticks, practice your ghoulish wails, and put your dentist on speed dial, ladies and gentleman, because it’s Halloween and things are about to get a whole lot of weird.

I had class today with Miley Cyrus. So already, that’s a little bit abnormal for my regular Thursdays. And there was a ghost there, but that wasn’t unusual. If horror movies have taught me anything, it’s that colleges are the ideal ghost hang-outs. And, Gregory is cool and kind of keeps to himself, so everyone is pretty okay with him.

Halloweek at the College

Halloween, one of my friends has aptly observed, is really more like “Halloweek,” because at the College, the festivities really do span a week. My Halloweek started out on Sunday with a Halloween theme chapter meeting with my sorority. My president wasn’t back from a trip to D.C. with our Model UN, so I presided over the meeting dressed as Frida Khalo, unibrow and all. Seeing my fellow KKGs in costume is an especially fun time because it’s a dress-up situation where everyone knows that a.) they’ll be inside and warm, and b.) that they’ll be among people who share their sense of humor.

C of I Planetarium hosts November public show
