Finals Are Coming

First and foremost, if you are a nursing major, please do not read this blog. You will get upset because your finals week actually is crazy and difficult. However, the rest of us should admit that we are not as overwhelmed as we are trying to convince our surroundings. When I think about it, finals week is just another series of tests consisting of things I already know. In fact, it should be, and it often is, the easiest test of the semester. My thesis here is that as long as we study diligently throughout the semester, there should be[…]

Christmas Spirit at MNU

I am a big fan of this holiday. I simply love everything about Christmas and all its traditions. My birthday is also in December, so I am naturally a winter child who loves the cold, snow ball fights, and building snowmen. Last week, I wanted to found out what other people on campus think of this awesome time. I know there is a divided community. A lot think it is commercial garbage whereas others share my point of view. I talked to different students and recorded some of their answers: Mac What do you like about Christmas? I like the[…]

Dare I Say This?

This week I had one of the most fearful and risky conversations in my life. I know how big the issue with political correctness is, however my stubborn brain keeps telling me to wage a war against it. I believe that political correctness is a disease that needs to be cured, and the only way to beat it is to talk about the issues it covers. I was so happy to find once again that professors at MNU are absolutely fabulous in helping with problems of all kinds. In fact, I realized that I am at the right university where[…]

My Election Night at MNU

November 8 was one of the most thrilling days I have ever witnessed. I think that most of us still don’t believe who won. However, I am happy and proud of our MNU community for accepting the outcome without any drama, unlike some other people. This is how democracy works. Sometimes you win and sometimes you loose. What made me happy was the fact that I could say, “I told you so,” to everybody who considered Trump just a joke. I was curious who the American people would choose. Frankly, there weren’t many options on the table, but somehow this orange-face[…]

College – Is It Really Worth It?

A question that every student asks, and every parent is worried about. We all have been there. There are times when all the effort, time, and money seem to be invested into something we don’t really care about. We all learned by heart the stories preaching about the importance of having a college degree. On the other hand, we all know Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates who dropped out of college and are billionaires now. So, which path is the right one? I think that college is not as much about getting a degree as it is about[…]

WaterFire at the Plaza

This weekend was the WaterFire event in Kansas City which is an installation of fires along the banks of Brush Creek next to the Country Club Plaza. Everyone who has seen how glamorous the Plaza itself is can now imagine what such an event would look like. That MNU is close to KC truly is an advantage, especially for people like me who are used to live in the suburban areas of big towns. I live close to the city, Hamburg, in Germany. This city is so big that it is considered an own state. With a big city nearby,[…]

FIRST TIME EXPERIENCES!

This past week, I have been doing a lot of things. In order to tell you about everything I tried to find something they all have in common which is that all of them happened for the first time. On Wednesday, some of my teammates spontaneously invited me to go to the Royals game. I was so excited because I have so much about it, but I have never been. The Royals play such an important role in Kansas City and the surrounding. Winning the World series last year, almost everyone can identify with the Royalty blue. It is a[…]

Action Pact takes to the road

This last weekend the Action Pact travel team packed packed up our bags and jumped in our fifteen passenger van at 10:15 AM to begin what ended up as a seven hour road trip to Cimarron, KS. Between moments of doing homework, sleeping, and jamming out to the radio our team of six alternated between melting in suffocating heat when the windows were closed or being slapped by relentless wind when the windows were opened. Action Pact followed Voices of Praise, an eight person singing group, in Clifford, their big red van. This was the second event Action Pact has[…]

Chicago and Championships

Over the break a few friends and I stayed at Jordan’s house in Champaign, IL which we used as a home base for getting to Chicago and exploring the city. We had some mishaps along the way such as losing Levi’s bag on the side of the highway when, wrapped in a trash bag to protect it from rain, it escaped the ties binding it to the roof of our car and didn’t even make it into Missouri. Unfortunately we didn’t realize this had happened until we were a few hours into the trip. Levi handled things really well though[…]
