Get Involved!

Sunday, November 30, 2014

Hi all!

Hope all is well. In this post I would like to write about some of the great student groups and clubs that I have been a part of in my time at CU. At a big school like CU, there are so many opportunities and groups to get involved in. Below I detail some of my personal favorites.

CU Basketball

Sunday, November 30, 2014

Hi All!

As many of you many know, CU has a great Men’s Basketball team. For the past 4 years, winters in Colorado have been made even better with numerous CU basketball wins. This year, we look to return to the top 25 and make it to the NCAA Tournament in March again.

Thanksgiving in Santa Fe

Sunday, November 30, 2014

Hi all!

I hope that everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!

I spent the last week in Santa Fe, New Mexico visiting family. We left Wednesday morning and all piled into our Honda Odyssey. In total, there were six of us and Louis, our golden doodle dog. After the six hour drive, we arrived in Santa Fe at my uncle’s beautiful mountainside home.

Thanksgiving at Home

Friday, November 28, 2014

This past week, I have been back in my hometown in California for Thanksgiving break. I have gotten to spend a lot of time with my family and friends that I have known my entire life. Yesterday was Thanksgiving, and I must say that it was definitely one of the best yet. We started off the morning by watching Saturday Night Live Thanksgiving episode that actually aired the night before while my dad watched football in the other room.

How I Got Here

Friday, November 28, 2014

This fall, as I am seeing all the pictures of my little high school friends going on college tours and trying to start their decision process, I am reminded of my own! When I was a senior in High School, I was sure I wanted to go to college somewhere far away. CU Boulder was the school most of my family had gone to, and it sat conveniently in my back yard. I applied to 8 schools all over the country, varying between big well known schools like New York University and small Christian schools like Grand Canyon University.

The Return of the C-Unit

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Hi all,

 

I hope that everyone is enjoying a fruitful Thanksgiving week. CU gives us the week off of school, so I am able to relax, and ideally catch up on school (although it is tough to get going on school when you are on break).

The Nearly Naked Mile

Wednesday, November 26, 2014

Howdy Folks,

 

As some of you may know, I am in my final year here at CU. The reality of graduating in May definitely sparks a bit of apprehension when I think about it, and has spurred me to try and suck the maximum amount of fun out of my final year as an undergraduate.

Boulder to Santa Cruz

Tuesday, November 25, 2014

Hi all!

A couple of weekends ago I flew out to Santa Cruz, California. I had never been to California, except for 2 days in L.A., so this extended weekend trip was really interesting to me.

We flew out of Boulder on Thursday night into San Jose. Since we flew out so late, it was dark when we arrived, so I did not get to see the scenic drive from San Jose to Santa Cruz. While in Santa Cruz for the weekend, I got to experience many new things.

Why I Chose CU

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

When I was a senior in high school, I told all of my friends and family that there was no way that I was going to CU Boulder. I am from a small town in California, where everybody seems to know my family and I was so ready to get away from all of that. My dad and both of my sisters went to CU Boulder and my mom went to grad school at CU Denver, so I was raised a Buff. My family has the 1990 National Championship football game on DVD, CU stickers on every car, cornhole with the CU logo on it, and even a bottle opener that plays the fight song.
