Top 10 Best Things About College So Far…

October 18, 2013 | By | No Comments

Hello friends!

So it has only been a couple of months since I first moved in on campus and started school. Currently MNU students are on fall break, so I had the chance to meet with some old friends.  A lot of them ask about my favorite parts about being in college, which gave me the idea of writing about them in this blog!  (Some of these are unique to MNU and others are just about the college life in general)

Here they are, my top ten favorites!

1. Late night Walmart runs! 

IMG_1952Walmart runs usually are a last minute decision, and they almost always happen near curfew.  My friend Rachel here is stocking up for the week.

2. Eating in Class

IMG_1944The answer is yes, yes you can eat in class in college!  This picture is of my breakfast (a devoured blueberry muffin) that I didn’t quite have time for that morning.  No worries!  Finish it in class!

3. Ice cream machine in Campus Center

IMG_1947I am aware that the last few have been all about food, but what can I say! I’m a college student.  This one I’m sure is most students’ favorite.

4. NAPS

In college you get many opportunities. They are especially needed on the late night-early morning combination days.  (Monday, Wednesday, Friday are my days)

5. Movie nights with your best friends nearly every night!

This has become a daily event in the dorms.  Which may not be the best idea on the night before 8 am classes….. but you know! :)

6. All of the many ASG events!

IMG_1935Thrift Store Prom, White Light Event, Car Bash, Smoovie night, and many many more!  There is an event it seems nearly every week.  This was at the hoedown last week.

7.  Going to a small school…. But not too small :)

There are many perks to this in my opinion.  People you’ve met once remember your name and care about you, yet you can still meet more new people all the time! Another perk is making the website fairly easily.  Look at me, I was so ready for that picture. ;)

8. Choosing classes your interested in!

Now of course you have your common core classes you have to take, but you still have options with those.  You can choose your schedule, your classes, and overall you just feel very independent!  And something I love that is unique to MNU is having professors of those classes that care.  You aren’t just a number at MNU, but you matter!

9. Spiritual Life

IMG_1973Chapels at MNU are amazing! You have so many different options throughout the week to experience the Lord.  This chapel is from student-led chapel in Bell on Thursday.

IMG_1906MNU gives you opportunities to join small groups as well!  This is my girls small group!

10.  MEETING SOME LIFE-LONG FRIENDS :)

IMG_1886These people are some of the greatest I have ever met!  I am missing a few, but I truly love all of them!

Anyways that’s my blog for the week…

Thanks for stopping by!
