Lessons I’ve Learned My 2nd Yr of College

There is an endless list of lessons I’ve learned my second year of being at MNU. However, If I named them all, I’d be writing for a week straight–no joke. So here it is–a few valuables that I think everyone can benefit from: Completing homework before Sunday. This theory sounds ridiculous. But trust me, it’s the best thing in the world. I’m not ashamed to admit it, but there has been one day this semester where I’ve actually gotten all of my homework done on a Saturday and had nothing to do on a Sunday–imagine that, having the intended Sabbath[…]

The Real Reasons Why You Should Come To MNU

Not that you really need to be persuaded because, by now, we already know that MidAmerica is an outstanding university with even more outstanding students. But in case you needed to be reminded, here’s a few reasons why you should come to MNU.  1. Fact: MNU is one of the few universities that start later in the fall. So, when University A and B have to start school on the 17th, we get to start school on the 27th–say hello to four months of summer! 2. An average classroom size is 1:14 ratio–so that means plenty of one-on-one time. 😉[…]

Pioneer Day!!!!

***The video above is from two years ago! (Yes, I’m in it…) Incoming freshman, you should be pumped for one thing, specifically, this summer. And that, my friends, is Pioneer day! Whoo! I know a lot of you have been asking about what it is and when it is, so today’s blog is directed toward that specifically. The What: Pioneer day is a pre-enrollment day for incoming students and freshman. At this lovely event you will have the chance to register for classes, complete the registration process for next fall, meet your future roommate, or get a roommate! During this[…]

A Short Blog Post (And an Update on the foot!)

Good News, Ya’ll! I don’t have GOUT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Praise, Jesus. Bad News: I have tendinitis, and it still hurts. Last Thursday, I went to the clinic on 175th street (which was really cheap for a broke college student who doesn’t have insurance) and was correctly diagnosed with Tendinitis, and if any of ya’ll are familiar with it, you know how much it hurts. So I was on bed rest for four days–it was terrible. However, in those four days, my foot healed enough for me to walk on it without using crutches. This was a plus, but I still have to[…]

Well, I definitely wasn’t expecting this…

It started out slowly–almost like a whisper. Then, throughout the morning/afternoon, it grew louder. The pain intensified. It was like a burning sensation in my ankle. Whenever I put pressure on it, It felt like someone was taking needles, setting them on fire, and digging them into my ankle. Why must pain like this exist? There was a moment–a few moments, actually–when I assumed I was imagining the pain. I thought, “Britney, this has got to be in your head. There is no way that this is real.” But it was real. It was real, and it was consuming me.[…]

Spring Into Classes (The Four Year Plan)

Classes are the best part of your day, right? If the answer to that question is yes–kuddos to you. For me, it’s definitely not applicable. For the most part, I like my classes, I do. I really like the learning part, but, at this point, I’m just so ready to get out of my general education courses. I’m ready to dig into the niddy-griddy, and start my Cooperate Communication courses!  (check out my major right here!) One thing they don’t tell you about college is constructing your four-year-plan. A four-year-plan is basically a map of classes you have taken and[…]

The Truth About Campus Center

It can’t be that bad, can it? The truth is, when it comes to Campus Center, you either love it or you hate it–but most MNU students fall in-between. When students come to visit–for example, SCOUT, Senior Visit Day, MAX–the food is at an all-time high. Everyone is in a good mood because there are actual food choices that we can live with. I mean, the Campus Center staff spoils the newbies; they shower them with grilled food, special dips, soups that taste good, and other delights. The bread is always fresh; the fruit is hand-picked from the ripest trees,[…]

SCOUT, My Birthday, And other things this week.

First and foremost, I seriously hope you enjoyed that video! (Things You Just Don’t Hear MNU Students Say.) Shout out to those who created it…cuz it was amazing! (P.S. I watched it like five times the day it aired…) Anyway, on to other news, today is an exciting day because it’s SCOUT!!! SCOUT simply stands for Students Checking Out University Turf. Basically, Juniors, Seniors, and even Freshman or Sophomores, come to campus on a Thursday and Friday. It’s an overnight event where students will get the chance to sleep in the dorms (exciting), attended a few classes of their choosing[…]

My Not-So-Normal Tuesday

I’m back and ready for action! I can’t even begin to describe how crazy my life has been these last two weeks. SO much has happened in SO little time, and there are not enough seconds to breathe…. But then again, that’s just college: Deadline after, deadline after, deadline–it’s exhausting and it’s a habit I can’t adjust to. Anyway, I thought I’d share one of my days with all of you! Recently, my admission’s job asked me to take a student to the airport, but she wasn’t just any student, she was a future Pioneer. She had been in Kansas[…]

Snow, Frozen, and My Day In A Few Gifs

This week MNU had two Snow Days!!!!!!!! So Imagine having to start school on a Thursday. . . It’s the pits! With That Said, here is a brief overview of my day with a few Gifs. I woke up like a princess this morning….well, not really. It was freezing in my Spindle apartment. I felt like I was in the middle of a frozen forest with no clothes!!! Yikes! I then proceeded to get ready for the day. I probably didn’t look as great or as happy as Bill Cosby though! Then, with integrity, I faced the outside world. And[…]
