College and high school athletics are very similar and very different at the same time. In college, you can expect longer practices, year round training, intense lifting and a lot more responsibility on and off the court! I think that no matter how hard a sport is, anyone can easily adapt, especially if it helps to pay for your college education. Personally, I thought that college athletics might be too hard for me, and I have a feeling most athletes thinking about playing a college sport have thought the same thing. It is tough to decide whether to play a college sport or not! I knew that I loved playing volleyball and that I could definitely picture doing it for four more years. In college, you will have to work hard all the time. … Read More »
Monday night of exams every semester Campus Program Board hosts Late Night Munchies in Henderson. You don’t need a meal plan to come to this late-night study break, which includes live music and free food. CPB always has really creative ideas to match the theme of the night to the style of the artist playing. One semester, they had a Sesame Street theme and another semester they turned Henderson into a jazz club.
This year, CPB brought in Ari Herstand, a vocal-looper who as a single performer sang to trumpets, guitars, piano and other voices– all created by him. It was a really unique experience. Ari had an amazing voice which was very easy to find relaxing while still being energetic enough to keep his rotating audience engaged.
This was the first year I didn’t help CPB set up the event and … Read More »

We left Wednesday afternoon around 4:30 p.m. in three UF vans with only one stop for dinner and getting to our hotel around 10:00 pm. We were all exhausted after a long drive and day, and were looking forward to some sleep! Forget sleep â€” Â we did not get to bed until a little after 11:00 pm and we had to be up by 3:15 a.m. at the latest. It ended up being a three hour nap.
We got … Read More »
Almost a year ago, I started blogging for the University. Â One of my first ideas for an entry was building personalities, I would spend some time in each one of the main buildings on campus and write about that building’s personality. Â I realized I hadn’t done this series yet, so I’ll start with the building I personally spend the most amount of my time in, Egner Center for the Performing Arts.
Recently renovated, Egner now boasts its very own elevator, a project that reshaped the face of the building, but the character of Egner hasn’t changed all that much. Â The character of Egner is just that, it is the home to the bands, theatre, TV studio, and communication classes. Â Many students pass through its halls to their general education communication classes, however there is a collection of students that … Read More »
