10 Questions College Students Are Tired Of Hearing

Hey friends! So I have been thinking lately and I have no idea what I want to do with my life.  I am majoring in sociology and I have some ideas about what I want to do, but I have not fully committed to anything.  I am only 21!  Sometimes I tell myself that I am young and I have plenty of time.  But other times I feel so old and that if I do not figure this out soon, I am going to die sad and miserable!  I was asked a few days ago what I am majoring in[…]

Social Media: What Is It Really?

I was sitting in my Sociology class a couple days ago when MNU’s beloved professor, Bo Cassell, brought up an interesting point.  Why do we have social media? What is the point of it in today’s society? Why is it so valued? How has it affected our culture today? We discussed our theories. But what stuck out in my mind was Professor Cassell’s statement, “Now days, we do things in life so we can post about it.” MIND BLOWN. This got me thinking, what would our lives be without social media?  Think about it.  We go to a party, and[…]

This past week I received the extremely exciting news that I have officially been accepted as an intern at The Keeler’s Women Center for this upcoming summer!

Some of[…]

I PASSED!!!!

I’m sorry I’m so late in the game in updating you guys on what’s been going on lately! This last week has been absolutely CRAZY. Technically I am Junior in my undergrad but since I’m graduating a semester early, this past week I HAD TO TAKE THE SENIOR COMP. For those of you who are unaware, the Senior Comp is an exam you have to take your senior year which is basically a cumulative final for all of the classes you’ve taken during your four years that are in your major. I found out about this exam right before spring break,[…]

I’m at this point in the semester where all the homework and craziness is getting the best of me. This past semester I had some upper division elective spots to fill and, since being a Sociology major and Psychology minor, I thought it’d be good to take some classes from the one remaining behavioral science major–Criminal Justice. Now, having taken no Criminal Justice classes prior to this semester, I of course thought it  best to jump into a senior-level course focusing on the most debated and controversial issues within Criminal Justice. NBD. Piece of cake. Needless to say, the confidence has waned a bit since then. This[…]

Today is my very first post of many to come! I am so excited to get to share with you all a glimpse of what my life looks like throughout this coming year! I guess an introduction is in order… Kelsey Rae Cranford is my name and I am a junior here at good ol’ MidAmerica. I am studying Sociology and Psychology and have yet to discover what to do with all that yet.  Regardless, I absolutely love what I’m learning and love how it challenges me every day. I’m from Manhattan, KS, and have the most amazing family I[…]
