Finals Study Tips

Friday, December 7, 2012

 

Hi All, with finals looming ominously overhead I thought that I would write this week’s blogs with some of my best study tips. I have gleaned most of these from professors and others and they have worked really well for me, and I hope they will for you too.

Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 29, 2012

             Thanksgiving is easily my favorite holiday. It really isn’t even close. I mean, what’s not to like? Family, friends, and a schmorgazborg (I’m pretty sure that not a real word) that lasts well past the Thanksgiving dinner itself.

 

            At CU, we have the full week of Thanksgiving off of school. So, most students head home and spend time with their families, and away from their studies. Finals are beginning to lurk on the horizon, so I for one really enjoyed the time to decompress.

Buffs Basketball

Buffs Basketball

Now I am a die hard Buff. Winning, losing, or otherwise I am at every game. However, it sure is nice when they are winning, and that is exactly what the men’s basketball team has been doing. Last year the won the Pac-12 tournament and reached the round of 32 in the NCAA tournament. The season tipped off last Friday, and the Buffs crushed Wofford.

Election Day

Thursday, November 8, 2012

 

Well, the election is finally over. Whether you like the outcome or not, the campaigning is done. Living in Colorado, this means we can all breathe a huge sigh of relief. Colorado is an important swing state for the presidential election, and the winner of Colorado has won each of the last three presidencies.

First Snow

Friday, November 2, 2012

 

              Every year, the Daily Camera (one of Boulder’s local newspapers) holds a contest. People enter in the date they think the first snow of the year will arrive, and whoever gets the date right wins a ski trip of some kind.

Campus In The Morning

Thursday, October 25, 2012

 

I have to lift three times per week with the lacrosse team at 7:15 a.m. As a result, I am on campus before classes get going, and I am usually riding home right around the time that classes are finally starting.

Thursday Night Cruisers

Friday, October 19, 2012

 

Imagine 100 of your friends all gathered together on a Thursday night. Imagine all of you together at a park. Imagine all of you dressed up in costumes based on a common theme. Now imagine all of you with bikes, cruising around the city of Boulder, wishing every person you pass a “Happy Thursday!” enthusiastically.

Midterm Season

Thursday, October 11, 2012

 

Ah yes, the part of the semester where everyone gets a good bit busier. Midterms. For some reason it seems that professors choose the same two weeks to for all of their exams and due dates. However, a lot more is made of midterms than there really is to complain about.

Hall of Excellence

Thursday, October 4, 2012

 

If any of you have ever taken a campus tour at CU-Boulder, you may remember the stop at the top of Old Main in the Heritage Center. The Heritage Center is a museum that basically seeks to honor and remember some of CU-Boulder’s most significant historical moments, people and accomplishments.

Last week marked the first week of fall practice for club lacrosse team here at CU. We have a bigger team than normal this year, but that just adds to the fun.
