So today I’m going to piggy back off of Steffi’s hilarious post (guys if you haven’t read it, her post is GOLD), and do my own spin on being a freshman!! *waves* yah, that’s me. I’m the typical freshman in every sense of the word, and it’s led to many laughs at my expense. Here are just a few examples. Showing up to class excited. I know, right? This feels like a no-brainer to me, but in several classes I’ve received the “woah you’re too perky” look, and people have made comments that “I’m such a freshman” solely because I[…]Read More
A lot has changed this year that makes me realize how old I am. As if being called “grandma” by the freshmen isn’t enough, I wrote down a few signs that show you that you belong to the seniority class on this campus. You know you are a senior when people say the following things to you: “What? You are still here? I thought you graduated!” Honestly, there is nothing more depressing than another person showing you how fast time flies – especially teachers. If they even notice, how do you think I feel? In today’s world, I probably should[…]Read More
I am a member of MNU’s performing Improv team, To Be Determined, or TBD for short. This week we performed our first show of the year and here are some of the funny things we said. Enjoy!
Let’s be real: tests can be a little intimidating. We cram knowledge into our heads at 2 in the morning, praying that when the morning comes the test is multiple choice. Sound familiar? Trust me, I’ve been there. And I’ve tried all the tricks: using chocolate as a motivator, chewing a certain kind of gum, standing on my head- okay, maybe no headstands. But you get the idea. If we want to succeed, whether it’s in high school or college or even grad school, we have to be good test-takers! So today, I’m letting y’all in on “Chloe’s secrets for[…]Read More
When you think of dorm rooms what are the first things that come to mind?
Smelly? Gross? Dark? Just plain bleh?
Well you might be surprised to know that there are so many ways to make a dorm room feel like a home. Not to mention that there are many different styles of dorm rooms that are available here on campus.
So come along as I take you on a dorm room tour. I hope you enjoy!
This does not only describe my first blog post, but also my senior year in which I finally got a starting position. Senior year could not have started better: For our soccer trip, we went to Chicago and my parents had planned a trip there as well. They were flying in to see their first collegiate game ever in person! They had not seen me play since I have left home 3 years ago, so this was huge for me! Preparations After a really hot and rough preseason (a few losses all against ranked teams), we were ready to make[…]Read More
Perspective can be defined as a particular attitude toward, or way of regarding something: a point of view. In art, perspective shows the depth of a painting, using lines and lights to create a third dimension on a two dimensional plane. Everything we, as people, can know about anything, is fully and completely comprised of our perspective. Based on the way we grew up, those we call friends, where we spend our time, what we put into our minds, what we’ve seen, heard, tasted, felt, smelled… the sum of all of our past experiences , defines our perspective. This is[…]Read More
Hello everyone! My name is Chloe and I will be one of the new student bloggers. I can’t wait to share my experience here at MNU with all of you. For now here is a video to get to know me better. It felt a bit odd to simply talk about myself, so I asked my friends to tell me what first comes to mind when they think of me. I hope you enjoy!Read More
Happy hump day, y’all! Chloe Salts here, the baby freshman blogger on board 🙂 For my very first post (eee!) I thought I’d just tell you all a little about myself. Quick backstory for those of you who enjoy that kinda stuff: Although I was very interested in attending to MidAmerica Nazarene University from the get-go, I was still hesitant about the money situation. I knew it was incredibly expensive, and the only way to go would be scholarships. In His good grace, God opened multiple doors and before I knew it I was getting the phone call telling[…]Read More
