Why I Love UE'S Size

 

When I was looking at colleges, I knew that I really wanted to go to a small school. Now, I know that this choice isn’t for everyone, but for someone as introverted and intent on personal relationships as I am, the thought of going to a huge school was absolutely overwhelming. And I do not at all regret my decision. Although there are a few advantages one tends to lose when going to a big school (with the crazy amounts of funding these often have), I love UE’s relatively small, intimate size—it leads to a unique, far more personal experience than otherwise.

Time Moves Faster Here

 

I swear it's true, here at college time moves by quicker than ever before.  And with more demands on your time than you ever thought possible, time truly does become your most crucial resource.  I'm completing most of my undergraduate coursework in three years before attending physical therapy school here at UE, which means I'm already halfway through my undergraduate career!  That's unbelievable and actually quite scary to think about.  I still find it weird to introduce myself as a sophomore in college.  And I felt old today in class when we walk in and kids birthdates we written on the board from the previous class...and they had been born in 2012 and 2013.  When someone says "20 years ago..." I think that's before I was born, but in fact it's right about the time I was born.

Firsts

This semester has started off with a lot of firsts...and as nerve-racking or as awkward as it may be to do something new, it also stirs up a rush that comes with doing something for the first time.  Our sophomore athletic training class made a basketball team for IMs and our first game this past Thursday was the first basketball game in years, or for some people, ever!  

DO IT AGAIN

 

Please do not be alarmed by the capital letter explosion in the title of this post. "DO IT AGAIN" is something that my high school football coach used to scream at me (a lot) and my teammates (sometimes) when we did something incorrectly. As a result, it has become ingrained in my memory and subconscious. Fortunately, this phrase is being used this time with mucho excitement instead of with anger and frustration. I have returned to the University of Evansville for the spring semester of my sophomore year to DO IT AGAIN!

The Best Major on Campus

I know I've mentioned it before, but here it is again: I'm an athletic training student on the Pre-PT track. I may be a little bit biased, but I firmly believe I'm in the best major that UE offers. But instead of just telling you that and hoping you believe it, now I'll tell you why I'm in the best major on campus.

Home for the Holidays

 

Family is something that is easy to take for granted and ready to be rid of for a while when transitioning from high school to college.  As Simba said, 

Final stretch

The Christmas lights almost felt out of place yesterday in the 70 degree weather.  But today winter is definitely on its way, dropping 30 degrees overnight.  Here's a couple pictures around campus of decorations and in turn some motivaton to make it through finals, and back home to friends and family.

The Best (Worst) Time of the Year

 

Good news friends! It's the most wonderful time of the year! We get to spend time with our loved ones, and get to stuff our faces with delicious foods like turkey and pie and mashed potatoes that actually have flavor. And we get two breaks to relax, catch up on sleep, and see our friends.

Surrounded by Music

As a music major, I am often surrounded by music.  Actually, almost all of the time.  This week, however, I spent an even larger portion of my time involved with music, including a few performances.  It has been quite the week:

Not-so-pro athletes, but don't count us out!

Intramurals (IMs) are very popular here at UE and there are so many options there's bound to be one you can get involved in!  Most colleges offer intramurals, and here at UE you can bet you'll be able to make or join a team in whatever sport and competitive level you want.  Some of the sports offered include flag football, sand and indoor volleyball, basketball, and ultimate frisbee!  What about badminton, Euchre, dodgeball, futsol, and racquetball?  Got it, have it, yes, you betcha, and you should try it!
