My Favorite Memories From This Semester

As the semester comes to a close, I’ve been reflecting on my favorite memories of sophomore year so far. The first thing that comes to mind is the trip I took to Colorado over fall break. I went with my friend Christen and we stayed with an amazing family while we were there. Christen and I explored Colorado Springs, hung out with horses, watched some Royals baseball, and went to New Life Church. Speaking of Royals baseball, another one of my favorite memories is when the Royal’s won the World Series… and every game leading up to that. My friends[…]

It’s OK To Feel Down Sometimes

Hey friends! So I wanted to talk about this during mental health awareness week but I obviously missed that chance, but I think that I can tie the subject in pretty well to this upcoming week. “But Isaac!  What are you even talking about?!” I’m glad you asked!  I am talking about depression. “But Isaac!  How does this subject tie into this upcoming week?!” Ok, calm down I’ll tell you. Finals week is stressful.  For some people, probably more than you think, it is a make it or break it time.  For some people, these tests are a matter of[…]

Creating an Integrated Marketing Communications Plan

For the past few months, I’ve been working on a semester long project for my Promotion Management class with a few teammates. The assignment consisted of creating an Integrated Marketing Plan for the MNU Admissions Department. Specifically, we were supposed to create a plan to market the current SCOUT events that MNU holds. It was crazy. We had to conduct our own research and think of every possible way to market high school students for SCOUT. I say that it was crazy, and it definitely was, but it was also super fun and interesting. That was my first time doing a Marketing Plan,[…]

Fall Semester Is Almost Over 📚

There are only two weeks left of our fall semester. We call this period of the semester “crunch time.” This is where a lot of students are trying to do anything and everything to get their letter grade from a B to an A; or for those students struggling to pass that tough class, with a C or better. This is when, students start asking their professors for extra credit, or if there is anything else they can do to get their grade up. A biology professor of mine, ounce said . . . “Why would I trust and spend my hard earned[…]

Success Mushroom

I can’t sing. I am not a musical person. My friends are musical people but I was not given that gift. I can art…sometimes. People tell me I can art but I won’t attempt to draw something that I’ve never drawn before because people might look at it and realize I’m not very good at arting after all. I am as good of a Christian as I am ever going to be. I have a certain ability to understand and experience God and I should be content with where I am. These were statements that I believed about myself about[…]

Terms You Learn in College

Last week it dawned on me that my vocabulary has recently expanded. Upon coming to college, there are several new terms that I’ve had to learn and use in my every day vocabulary. I wanted to share those with you all in hopes that you don’t have to stare blankly back at those would use them on you in your years to come. Love Language: This is the verbal and nonverbal communication between you and your significant other in which you express how you feel. I’d never heard anyone say this until this year…and now everyone does. The hard part is everyone[…]

What’s a day in college look like?

It’s November? It’s November! Time to schedule classes for next semester… already! Upon planning my new schedule, I realized a typical college daily routine will change semester to semester. So I wanted to illustrate to you all what your schedule MIGHT consist of going day to day. (Now let’s remember that I’m taking 16 credit hours and working full time. This might not be what YOU end up doing.) Morning Routine: I wake up around 7:30am, as a commuter I leave at 8:20am for my 9am class. Depending on the day, I might eat breakfast, spend a solid amount of[…]

What Is The Point Of A Dry Campus?

Hey friends!  This weekend is Halloween for those of you who do not know.  I am not really sure how you possibly could not know that.  But as long as I can remember, Halloween has not been on a weekend for a long time.  So I am sure there are going to be some crazy college Halloween parties.  Parties full of people dressed up in insane costumes pretending to be someone or something else just for the night.   And you know what college parties means.  Alcohol. Now, MNU is a dry campus.  It is against the rules to have[…]

Don’t Go as God for Halloween

Fall break was this week. I vowed to do two things To kickstart a revival of my bible reading habit To get all of my homework done so I could bask in a glorious no-homework, stress-free beginning of my week Let’s just say God may be happier regarding my fall break reading habits than my professors. I didn’t get much homework done. I read my bible and hung out with my friends doing caffeine induced non-study study parties, mall trips, movie nights, and listening to music. In communications studies there is a concept called “reframing” in which the words chosen to describe[…]
