Enjoy this week’s Vlog as Logan and I continue our quest to get the most out of our college experience. There’s no limit to the possibilities of strange activities and random events that may transpire in this Video. Hope you enjoy!
A couple of weeks ago my friend Blake Holden and I had a bet. We were in Des Moines, Iowa the last week of January for KCACTF. (I wrote an entire blog on KCACTF keep scrolling for details). The bet was simple. Whoever met the most people and took the most selfies with them by the end of the week won. The winner got to choose the outfit (from MNU’s costume closet) that the loser had to wear at our next improv show. Guess who won… ME. Feel free to go look at all the selfies I took with random[…]Read More

Congratulations are in order MNU for we have just competed week 4 of our spring semester of school. You know what that means… Summer is just around the corner and seniors have already graduated and gone on vacation in their minds. *Senioritis has arrived and although I am only a junior I fear that I have also been diagnosed with the worst case of it. With that being said here are a few things that I do instead of studying: *Senioritis is defined by google as, “a supposed affliction of students in their final year of high school or college,[…]Read More

This week 12 students including myself spend the entire week in Des Moines, Iowa participating and competing at the Kennedy Center America College Theatre Festival Region 5. This festival invites college students from all over the mid-west. Here are 3 things I took away from my week at KCACTF:
1. MNU Theatre is high quality.
Throughout the week the festival had different shows from colleges all over. Just about every night we got to go see a different play. Some were okay but others were truly disappointing. Many of the shows had poor acting. I was reminded of the the high standard that Heather Tinker (Professor/Director at MNU) holds her students to.
2. Dancing is Fun!
This week many of the MNU students had the opportunity to take dance classes such as Broadway Boot Camp and Musical Theatre. I probably had the most fun in these classes. We learned dances from Big Fish and Hairspray as well as basic Ballet and Jazz techniques. We definitely are not the best dancers out there but we giggled our way though!
3. Zombie Burger is Delicous.
If you havent been to Zombie Burger in Des Moines I would highly recommend it. We ate dinner there one night and I regret nothing. Not only was the food epic but the zombie decor was top notch.
A final thought: This week the festival challenged all the students to really branch out and meet people. They even made it a selfie swap competition. I won said competition. (Go look on my Instagram elisasfinsta). But even more than that I got to meet so many people that are so different from me. People that believe very differently than I do and people who were very kind and loving. It made my week even more fun! Blake Holden and I made a bet to see who would obtain the most selfies throughout the week and I won said bet. To see the ending result of this bet you are gonna have to be present at MNU’s next Improv Show on February 23 @ 9:30pm in Smith 200.
