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…

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.

Welcome Home!

A big welcome to the Class of 2015 and all returning fellow Yotes!  After leaving the Club Fair tonight, I was thinking about how great our campus is.  It was so nice to see familiar faces intermixed with the new freshmen, all ready to start a new year, and excited about the opportunities that are ahead.

I know that the other bloggers and I have written a lot about what we love about our school, but it’s time to hear from you!  Let’s start a conversation about what we appreciate most about C of I.

Did you go to that?

A lot of people fear the power of online social networks, the pervasiveness of their existence and the level of intrusion into their lives. The jury is still out on a lot of the implications that arise from this new phenomena of our culture, and I’m still not sure how I feel about a lot of what’s happening within this mostly unexplored frontier.

What to do?

By Madai Montes

It’s so close; I can smell it! College! The dorm life, the awesome campus events, the life changing classes; I cannot wait for this experience to begin! The countdown is beginning to come to an end, and by the end of this week, I will be making my next post as a college student. However, no matter how excited I am, I am still extremely stressed. So, because I hope this doesn’t happen to any other incoming freshman, here are some tips on what to do once school starts to sneak up on you.

Spots on campus

By Dorgham Abusalim

I know that many students come to our campus while having a decent idea about how it looks like, and where the nice hang-out spots are at. But since approximately 10% of our students are international, they rarely develop such solid view of our beautiful campus.

Here are some of my favorite/memorable spots on campus:

Summer’s gone?

By Melanie Palmer

Let’s get real here – summer went by real quick.

Here I am, with a few short days left, struggling to make them count, grasping at any opportunity to allow the feeling of home to sink down deep, where I can keep it until I come back for Christmas.

As I wrote last week, there is so much that I am really  looking forward to – however, now all I can think about are the things that I’m really going to miss.

Plants fight back

By Andrew Moore

From my experiences, a lot of college education is an exercise in common sense. If you fail to wake up in the morning, neglect your homework or disparage your sleeping schedule, you’re playing some tough odds in trying to keep some semblance of decent grades.

It’s simple enough right? Wake up, commute to appropriate/obligated location, perform required tasks. Kind of important in a work-environment, or so I’m told.

Magic in the air

By Sara Davis

Just got wind of some good news… I get to jack my dad’s bike for the school year!  As I return for round two at The College of Idaho, I am going to take advantage of the dreamy, flat terrain of Southwest Idaho. Last year I would start my morning jogging a couple blocks to the public library, or to the YMCA.… In my home town, a breezy jog or bike ride is rather unheard of (for each street is infamous for a hill, mountain slope, or valley that would make even Lance Armstrong shiver).
