No Breaks!

Stress Factor: High The last weekend was very interesting for me. There has been a dramatic change from summer to fall/winter weather and as the weather changed so did the school work. The slow start into the semester should have made be alert for what is coming now. I shouldn’t be surprised that tests, exams, and assignments pile up because we are halfway through. Yet, I am overwhelmed with all the work – I guess in that sense it doesn’t matter what year you are in. When the weather is not your best friend! On top of all, the chaotic[…]

Oh the people you will meet!

So you’ve heard it said that you should only go to college for your education, right?  While I agree that picking as school because of their academics is extremely important, I would argue that community is equally as important. That was one of there reasons why I chose MNU- it’s the people!  Coming into college, one of the most exciting things to me was the loads and loads of friends I’d get to make.  I adore meeting new people! It’s a favorite pastime of mine, really.  I consider a room full of people a happy challenge and love the adventure[…]

Five Signs That You’re A Freshman

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[…]

Who Says Dorms are Gross? Room Tour Time

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!

New Blogger on the Block: Chloe Salts

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[…]

Differences between the UK v US

For my last vlog, instead of a travel video I decided to do one about the differences between the UK and the US. I know I’ve written a couple of blogs about the differences, but this way you get to hear the Brits opinions as well. This whole vlog is extremely chaotic, and I’m pretty sure I didn’t get to explain any difference fully because I kept getting interrupted, but you will get the just of it hopefully. Also, in case anyone was curious, I had to put the MNU logo in because some people, were doing inappropriate motions. It took us forever to actually get something that would sort of work, but we got there in the end. I am so grateful for having these vlogs to remember my time at NTC because without a doubt it has been the best year of my life. Cheers to everyone who has kept up with these because I know there was a lot. Honestly, if you ever get the chance to study abroad do it. I have learned so much about the UK culture, about the US culture that I had no idea about, and about myself. Studying abroad will change your life.

Theatre Banquet

Every year the theatre professors at MNU host a beautiful Theatre Banquet in Bell. It is held at the very end of the school year and awards are given out. But the main reason MNU students get giddy with excitement about the theatre banquet is that at the banquet they announce next school years shows. Its a big ordeal and we go all out for it. This years banquet theme was Masquerade…

Here’s an adorable picture of some of the gals getting ready in the green room before the banquet.

A quick photo of all the gals getting ready before the banquet

You’re still scrolling because you wanna know what next years shows are don’t you?? Well hold on a second I’ve got more fabulous pictures…

I love this picture because it is with my two freshman that helped me with my baking with freshman vlog a couple months ago. Dana and Christian are on MNU’s impov team with me and Christian was in BOTH shows this past school year!

Elisa, Dana, and Christian pose for a picture together at the banquet.

 

 

Many people smile for a banquet selfie

This year I was honored to receive the award for Outstanding Performance for the role of Lucy in You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. Other awards given out this year were: Outstanding Improviser, Freshman of the Year, Rookie Performance of the year, Techie of the Year, and the Senior Spotlight Award.

I am so excited for next years show! Seriously y’all they are gonna be so good! In the fall we are doing a community wide version of Into the Wood and in the Spring we are doing Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare in our Blackbox Theatre. I, being a musical theatre geek, am ecstatic about Into the Woods. I cannot wait to get started with that show!

College is called Uni in the UK?

So there are quite a few words that are different in the UK than what an American would say. There are obviously phrases that Brits say that we would not normally say, but there are also everyday common words that they use but we would say something else. For the most part they are easy to figure out but it is curious how many common words are so different. They can’t understand why we have to make all of our words describe what the object is (for example we have to say bath tub instead of bath because otherwise we[…]
