That back to school feeling always feels amazing! It doesnâ€™t matter whether you are a freshman or a graduate student â€” we all understand the excitement of going back to school during that first week. I was happy to come back to campus; it gave me a completely new vibe and energy.
Â Â Â Â It feels great to be back on campus! Our campus is very well laid out, and it’s easy to find many things to do. For me, the Alumni Memorial Union (AMU) is the best place to hang out. It is considered the student lounge on our campus, so one can find many student related activities happening there on a daily basis. Since I am an avid coffee lover, I usually spend most of my time inside the Cave, a cafe in … Read More »
Last Friday at 7:00 a.m. we left for our second football game. It was our first away game against the Northern Michigan Wildcats. Northern Michigan happens to be about a 9.5 hour drive up north into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We travel in nice charter buses that have televisions and a bathroom. Itâ€™s quite the experience for me, because I never really go to Michigan. So as we rode up through northern Michigan, we stopped at a few rest stops and a buffet for lunch. Once we reached Northern Michigan, we went to their game field to have a practice. One of cool things about Northern Michigan is that their game field is in a dome. I donâ€™t know of any other Division II college teams with a dome! So, that night we practiced in … Read More »
“It’s the lecture hall without the horse,” totally makes sense.
You hear more spurs walking across campus than keys.
No one knows where or what Beeches is.
Brewer Frost is actually two buildings…. except in one.
Our squirrels are pretty rockin’.
The girls have bigger trucks than the boys.
Our sports teams sometimes even win!
“I have to go from GFAP to Davis.”
“I live in a house, it’s like like living off-campus, except I’m still on campus.”
The office houses are actually pretty cool.
I know there’s been a very popular Buzzfeed article floating around about 15 signs you went to The University of Findlay. Â A few days before, I had been working on this post, but I decided to go ahead and post it anyway. Â I know there are many, many more things unique to Findlay, so tell me some!
Each year The University of Findlay holds an annual Arch Ceremony for incoming freshman. At the front of campus, there is a historical arch that everyone can see. It is a tradition here at Findlay for students to walk through the Arch toward Old Main their freshman year. Professors, faculty, and Derrek lead the class from the Recreation Center to the front before the arch. Students are greeted by friends, family, music, and of course refreshments. Don’t worry athletes, your coaches will let you miss practice for the ceremony! Students are not to walk through the arch again until they have graduated from the University of Findlay. You do not want to know what happened to the ones that walked through the arch too soon… Legend has it that ordinary, well-rounded individuals have failed classes, weren’t able to … Read More »
One of my favorite things about Findlay is that, no matter what happens, the University is truly seeking the best opportunities for its students. Â As students we sometimes forget this as we get caught up in how much it costs, the amount of homework, projects, late nights, dropped classes, frustrating professors, and everything else we battle trying to get “the piece of paper” that is going to get us a better job when we graduate. Â It’s frustrating beyond all belief to read in the newspaper about protests from fast food workers saying they need to be paid more than $10 an hour, but before I digress too much further, going to college can be full of surprise challenges. Â Ones that they don’t show on the brochures, and ones you don’t hear from the students visiting home. Â This is the same … Read More »
