This past weekend, I was able to join in with many students and cancer-survivors to walk in the Relay for Life that was held on campus. The event was both powerful and emotional, and I had no idea what this event would entail until I was able to experience it firsthand.
In the past, I imagined that college would be the end of the fun dancing events that I always thoroughly enjoyed in high school. Thankfully, this did not wind up being the case. Last weekend, I was able to join many Concordia students and head over to Discovery World in Milwaukee. There, we were able to spend the night eating, looking at sea creatures, and literally dancing through decades of music.
It is always nice to have family in town, but it’s also always a nice plus when we are able to eat off campus with them as well. My brother, Zachary, and his wife, Anna, came to Wisconsin from Michigan this past weekend to hang out with us for a little bit. As Sunday rolled around, it was almost time that they were going to have to leave, but we were able to spend the morning with them which was still a fantastic time! more “Worship and Breakfast”
I had never before been to a driving range, and, honestly, I never saw myself every going to one either. However, my boyfriend asked me to go and the weather was so nice, so I thought I would give it a try. I am a fairly coordinated person, and I like to try new things. The driving range is a mere mile drive from the parking structure to their parking lot. You almost don’t even need to drive when there is such nice weather. It is at the corner of the road that the school is located on, so it would be near impossible to miss it. The prices are pretty cheap (or at least that is what I’m assuming, considering I have nothing to compare it to in my nonexistent experience with driving ranges). more “Driving Range”
Finals week is approaching and some serious studying needs to be done. There are papers, tests, and, of course, the finals themselves. There are tons of great places on campus to study, but getting off campus is a great way to shake things up. There is this super cool, “secret” coffee hangout called The Hiding Place. Coffee and caffeine are the driving forces of the college experience, and it is amazing when it can be gotten cheap. At The Hiding Place, they have cheap coffee and variety of options, most for a dollar or less, and it is run by CUW students in a church basement about five minutes away from campus. more “The Hiding Place”
Finding a summer internship is not an easy process, but with careful planning, being open, and trusting God, they are amazing blessings!
