Learning Outside the Classroom

Friday, March 6, 2015

Hi everyone! It has certainly been awhile since I’ve written a post, but let me tell you, study abroad is busier than you think!

The Good, the Bad, and the Sick

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

            Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, and most of the time you get sick. A sad fact of college is that you will get sick. A lot. Like, I’m pretty sure the amount of times I’ve been sick breaks several natural laws. I guess when you live in a building with 339 other people and recycled air, colds tend to flourish.

Restaurant Week!

Tuesday, March 3, 2015

Restaurant Week is a cool thing to take advantage of in Boulder and Denver. In the last week of February and the last week of August, a bunch of fancy restaurants in the Boulder/Denver area agree to charge a flat price for a 3 or 4-course dinner. Most are $30 per person for a few courses plus dessert, which may sound like a lot, but it's what you would get for $70 or more per person at those restaurants normally. It's definitely a splurge for the average college student, but I promise it's worth it. It's a cool chance to be fancy for cheap, and to bring your friends.

And my nose is froze. And my ears are froze. And my toes are froze. And I am froze.

What do you do all weekend when you’re in a dorm room, it’s freezing and snowing outside, and you don’t have a car? Not a whole lot, that’s what I am here to tell you. However, my friends and I made the best of this snowy weekend and even managed to change out of our PJs and leave the dorm once or twice.

Mom's Weekend

Monday, March 2, 2015

This past weekend was my last mom's weekend for my sorority. For mom's weekend, the event chair in my sorority plans fun acitivities to do for everybody. But since this was our last mom's weekend, my close group of friends and I wanted to spend the weekend with just each other and our moms. So we planned our own events since we have done them at the sorority house every year. (Although this year's Canvas and Mocktails event and brunch was really tempting). One of my roommates, Laura, wanted to plan a fun dinner with some of the seniors and our moms. We all met up at the St.

Beautiful Boulder

Monday, March 2, 2015

"Boulder might be the closest a college town is to heaven - and not just because it is located at 5430 feet of rocky mountain high altitude. It is 27 square miles of relief from reality.”  - Sports Illustrated

Viva Las Vegas

Sunday, March 1, 2015

As much as I love Boulder and the #snowpocalypse2015, I was very excited when my three older sisters kidknapped me to join them on a sister trip to Las Vegas! I was whisked away to celebrate my 21st birthday, and it was such a treat for me to get to spend some time with my sisters!

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Stop?

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

You’ll hear a lot about how much fun it is to go study out on Farrand Field, hike Chatauqua, or swim in the new Buff pool. But as a prospective student, you might be wondering what there is to do in the 6-7 months during which being outside is less than super duper fun.

A Weekend of too Much Dessert and Texas Hold'em

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

This weekend, winter finally decided to return to Colorado. I went to bed on Friday with a little bit of snow falling, but by Saturday night, there was almost a foot. I personally love the snow and couldn’t have been more excited, but some of my Florida and southern California friends were less than thrilled.

 

It's bad timing, though, because this weekend happened to be dad's weekend for my sorority! Lots of dads had to cancel, but luckily for me, my parents live 10 minutes away and my dad decided to make the trek to come see me!
