Finals!

Monday, April 25, 2011

Sorry I didn’t post earlier everyone, but I’ve been holed away preparing for my finals. This is the season when almost every undergraduate does more studying than sleeping and more reading than eating. Luckily, I only have 2 finals, but I still have to prepare for those. Wish me luck! I promise good flatirons pictures after finals!

One last ski trip

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

This past weekend I took what will probably be my last ski trip this season. Most of the mountains are closing this weekend or sometime around then, so there’ll be nowhere to go. But it’s OK because the mountains are open in the summer for mountain biking and some have giant alpine slides. It’s still a sad time when you know you won’t see that much snow for a few months! Now to focus on finals…

Formal

Sunday, April 10, 2011

Hey everyone! This weekend I had the opportunity to go on my fraternity’s annual formal weekend. This year we went out to dinner at a restaurant in Estes Park, CO, and then spent the rest of the weekend in condos in the same town. The rest of the weekend was very relaxing and we had a ton of fun hiking around and checking out the town itself. Now I have to brace for my last midterms and finals and then I’ll be done for the summer!

On and around campus...[Photography post]

Wednesday, April 6, 2011

Instead of stressing out when school gets tough, take time out to relax…do something you like to do. One of those things for me is photography. I’m thankful that CU provides a beautiful scenery for many pictures and more.

Bless…

Admitted Student Day

Sunday, April 3, 2011

This weekend we hosted Admitted Student Day at CU. Over 4,000 newly admitted students and their families came to our campus to go to major-specific info sessions, take campus tours, and generally get the feel of the campus. It was a very long day for me, an Ambassador, but a very fun one nonetheless. It was really cool every time a family would come up to me and ask where they could go to confirm their intent to enroll as soon as they could. I’m sure we solidified the commitments of a huge percentage of those students.
