Living...ON YOUR OWN

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

For me, the fact that I was going to have to leave my home was by far the scariest part of college, even though I lived a scant half hour away. Having to live with a roommate, feed myself, and, horror of all horrors, DO MY OWN LAUNDRY, seemed like it would be the most difficult thing in the world. I remember preparing myself to hate the dorms, thinking that I only had to get through one year before I could move out. Cut to me signing up to live in Smith again next year. Living in the dorms is certainly much different than living at home, but it does have some great perks.

Dogs, Sweet Dogs

Some of you may be mislead by the title of this blog. It has nothing to do with dogs the animal, but everything to do with hot dogs.

TRAVEL.

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

So, if you were to ask someone what I'm passionate about, I'm pretty confident that they'd tell you that I like Jesus, that I'm outgoing, and that I love to travel. In my family I'm known as the adventurous daughter, all my friends send me links to articles like "10 ways to travel more this year" and most of my time is spent dreaming up the next big thing. This year, I have hit the jackpot.

Sorority Recruitment Again

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

I know I posted a blog about this last semester, but when recruitment rolls around it more or less swallows my entire life, so I'm going to go ahead and give you a little peak into anoher round of recruitment, Alpha Delta Chi style...

When In Rome... Or Boulder.

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

It is always fun to go to new places, experience new cultures, and meet new people. Things feel fun and fresh, new and exciting, and the opportunity feels special. This week I had some friends visit me who were born and raised in Houston, Texas, and it was so fun for me to see this little world we call Boulder through another set of eyes!

It's All About the Student Groups

Wednesday, February 11, 2015

This week I stood in front of 20 CU students to help teach them how to teach English to non-English-speaking immigrants. These students will become new volunteers for the Student Worker Alliance Program, or SWAP, a student-run group on campus that connects CU students with a campus employee who would like to practice English. I'm one of SWAP's three student coordinators, and we hold trainings at the beginning of each semester for new volunteers.

Sunny and 75

Tuesday, February 10, 2015

One of the best things about Boulder is that there is so much to do in and around campus on the weekends.

This weekend I started off my Saturday by having brunch at the St. Julien for a sorority alumni event.  The St. Julien is a fancy restaurant, hotel, and spa on Pearl Street in Boulder and they have amazing, amazing, amazing food. Do I need to say amazing one more time? It was solidly the best eggs benedict I have ever had. And the best part was it was for free. And if there is one thing college has taught me it is that free food automatically tastes better.

Oh, the Places You'll Go!

Wednesday, February 4, 2015

I know most of you are facing one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make; what you’re going to wear to prom this year. I’ll discuss that later, but I also wanted to inform you about a slightly smaller choice you’re probably making, where to attend college. If you go on a tour of CU, you’ll learn lots of reasons you should come here; we have amazing faculty, dozens of close-knit communities, a kick-butt marching band, and we even win some football games! (Usually two.) However, what you won’t hear is all the great extra-curricular activities that you can participate in!
