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[…]

The Space Between

Hey friends! We are in the home stretch. These next few weeks are going to be tough and stressful for a lot of us.  I know they definitely will be for me!  For me, it’s been a little rough getting back in the groove coming back from Thanksgiving break.  It was like a strange teaser for the moment we all are waiting for…Winter break!   The end of the semester! All the anticipation and excitement isn’t really helping with trying to study for finals and finish all those long term assignments that have been put off to the very last[…]

A LISTENING GOD

    The semester is winding down rather quickly. We made some new friendships, and ended some old ones. We surprised even ourselves with how well we did academically, or maybe we learned we should and will do a lot better than we did next semester. We ate a lot because college fifteen comes for the weak. We accepted eight hours of sleep five days a week is only a dream. We learned how to cope with how poor we felt every time we left the cashier’s office. A lot of things happened this semester. You learned a lot, well[…]

Living ON Campus vs. Living OFF Campus

Living ON Campus: It has its perks, but it also, has its downsides. Being a freshman, it can be super exciting coming in, fresh out of high school, excited to be on your own and have a roommate. You get to meet new people and make new friendships. You get to experience, what it means, to be a true college kid. On this campus, for both, men and women, there are three styles of dorm living. The first style, is the freshman and sophomore dorms. In them, there are one to two roommates per room. They share a community shower with the rest of the hall. The[…]

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[…]

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! I attempt to blog about newspaper!

When I decided to come to MNU, one of the first things I did was grab one of the newspapers from Bell Center when I went to a choir concert. I’m not even sure I read the whole thing, to be honest, but right from the beginning I knew that an element of my life was going to be wrapped up in this paper. At MNU the paper is called The Trailblazer. The print edition comes out roughly three times a semester, and the online version is usually updated every week. Over the summer I met with the advisor, Melinda[…]

10 Times Liz Lemon Embodied The MNU College Experience

Liz Lemon is a pretty strange woman from the hit TV series 30 Rock.  I think that she perfectly and strangely captures the college experience here at MNU.  I am sure that everyone here has experienced at least one of these Liz Lemon moments. When you can’t figure out how to hook up the cable in your dorm room. 2. When you are looking forward to Glow With The Flow at the end of next semester because you know this year is going to wreck you.                            […]

COLLEGE IS NOT MY HOME

College is fun. College is hard. College is independent. College sometimes feels lonely. College is change. But one of the thing I didn’t realize college became for me until recently was home. I was on my annual walk, which is a day I set once a year to go on a walk. I really hate walking hence why I only do it once a year. I rather sit through a weekend long marathon of Pretty Little Liars than to get up and go on a walk. But I digress from my point. I was on my walk through the campus[…]

10 Things That Change After Freshman Year

This is my second year at MNU, and although I’m going to the same school and studying the same thing, it seems vastly different from my freshman year. There are quite a few things that have changed, small and big. Here’s my personal list of things that have changed since freshman year. I hope this can apply to other students besides myself. 🙂 1. The amount of times you eat at Campus Center It’s not necessarily that I eat out more, but I get real tired of the having the same thing for dinner every day. Maybe that’s my fault for[…]

Dating at MNU

For those who don’t know, I have a boyfriend that doesn’t go to MNU. Austin attends Saint Mary’s in Leavenworth, KS (the polar opposite direction of Olathe.) Even though I get to see all these happy couples together on campus, sometimes I’m happy that he doesn’t go to the same university as me. One reason being that he is incredibly competitive with me; the other is that “Ring by Spring” is so real it’s scary. Here at MNU, if you sit with a member of the opposite sex 3 or more times, you are automatically considered dating. Oh my. I[…]
