Birthday Bash!

by Alumni Posts October 3, 2012

Thursday (9/27) was my 21st birthday! My mom traveled all the way from Plainfield, IL to surprise me. It was a huge surprise because everyone knew, even my roommate. So I was able to go home for the weekend and my roommate came with. It was so much fun, I showed her around my neck […]

“Family” dinners

by Deanna October 3, 2012

In the beginning of the school year, myself and five friends decided every Tuesday night we would have “Family” dinners because all of us lowered our meal plans this year. Each week one of us prepares dinner and dessert for everyone, and we rotate turns. We do this up in the Griffins Nest on the […]

How I Study

by Alumni Posts October 3, 2012

Before I start my studies, I make a list of everything that I need to do for the next three days of school work. Doing this makes sure that I don’t miss anything. It is also a nice feeling to see what I have accomplished. I normally do this on a Monday and I try […]

by Lizzie April 30, 2012

Can you believe it? It’s already the end of the spring 2012 semester! Wow, my freshman year of college has flown by so fast. And I’ll tell ya, I’ve had great experiences with the campus, organizations, and friends! For the 2012-2013 year, I have a goal of focusing 90% of my time into my schoolwork. […]

But I’ve Got Friends that Are New Friends.

by Alumni Posts April 12, 2012

After agreeing to work with fellow blogger Courtney on our online Organic homework that’s due tomorrow night (which I still have to finish, unfortunately), I made my way to the library computer lab where we had decided to meet. When I arrived, Courtney was nowhere in sight (she was hiding in the back corner), but […]

Stressful Week Ends with Some Fun, well Maybe

by Conner April 2, 2012

This week I learned a lesson: If you have time over Spring Break to work on assignments for college, don’t be lazy and do them! My Spring Break was wonderful. It was nice and relaxing. I did absolutely nothing, but I should have used my week off to get ahead in my school work. That […]

Send Your Dreams Where Nobody Hides.

by Alumni Posts March 14, 2012

It’s almost here. I can almost taste the sweetness of spring break. Unfortunately, though, I have a massive list titled, “Fun Stuff to Do” tacked up on my wall, staring back at me and daring me to even utter the phrase, “Spring break.” *Big Sigh.* Today one of my professors announced that after spring break, […]

I Need Time to Stop Moving.

by Alumni Posts March 2, 2012

This week has been a crazy mess of homework. Why is it that teachers feel the need to pile on the tests, projects, and assignments right as I’m counting down the days until spring break (which, by the way, is approximately twelve, counting this evening)? Well. With all of this information being crammed into my […]

Real Love Had Not Quite Yet Found Me.

by Alumni Posts February 6, 2012

Okay, so I’ve decided to procrastinate out of sheer frustration with my chemistry homework. Currently, we are reading chapter 14, which is creatively entitled: “NMR Spectroscopy.” Enticed? I knew you would be. Quite frankly, I don’t understand how to identify chemical compounds utilizing IR, NMR, or any other acronym, for that mater. Give me a […]

What a Perfect Chance to Start Again

by Alumni Posts January 17, 2012

I will never underestimate the power of sleep again. Last semester, I had the stupid idea of, “How about I stay up as late as I possibly can to study and get stuff done?” This was a stupid idea because it led to numerous, undesired side effects: I began to crave food, which is bad […]
