Pas de Deux: \-ˈdər(z), –ˈdə(z), –ˈdü(z)\
1: a dance or figure for two performers
2: an intricate relationship or activity involving two parties or things

I have explained to numerous people, for the past four years, that I really do have class at the barn – and it never ceases to amaze them. Who goes to school to ride horses? Well, a great deal of us here at The University of Findlay do, and many of us choose to pursue a second major to supplement our equestrian studies major. Although the most common is a business major, my second major is public relations, and between the two disciplines, my life never slows down.

I chose to become a communication and equestrian studies major because I aspire to work in the communication department of somewhere like USEF (United States Equestrian Federation), USDF (United States … Read More »

Putting knowledge to work – a summer vacation story.

Posted by Madison Simmons in Tales from the Barn. No Comments

20th September

Welcome back! Classes are in full swing already, but let’s get you caught up on what I did this summer through work experiences and and an internship as a pre-veterinary major.

For the first part of my summer, I had the privilege of working at a sheep farm in my hometown. I had the time of my life working from sun up to sun down for the whole month as we had over 1200 sheep lambing. The most intriguing part of the job was being able to apply my knowledge from my spring semester Animal Reproduction and Parturition class to real life experiences. What I had studied and read finally became real and applicable to what I was doing at the farm. I was able to identify the different parts of the placenta and such as the ewes gave birth.

After finishing up lambing … Read More »



10 Things I Learned Working for The Cleveland Browns

Posted by Shannon Ebert in Tackling the Job. No Comments

15th September

What an amazing experience this summer has been! I learned more during my time at the Cleveland Browns than I could have ever imagined. My favorite part was getting my first corporate experience, taking everything I have learned during my first three years of college and applying it to the real world. What better of a place to apply that knowledge than at the Browns’ organization? Now that I am back at UF and into my final semester of college, my view on my academic studies has been transformed. I am able to take my summer experience inside corporate America and apply that knowledge to my courses this fall. Graduation for me is just right around the corner in December! Even though I am on a great path, I am anxiously anticipating the opportunities that I will take on once … Read More »



The HI Life: Fish

I’m beginning to miss some of the food from Hawaii. However, I recently went to the Asian Grocery in Findlay and found a number of things familiar to me: arare, senbei, mochi, nori, dried ika, and rice candy. That store made me nostalgic. I’m probably going to be spending too much money there.



Getting Started

4th September

School has gotten off to a great start! I’ve made some friends, joined some clubs, and settled into my classes. I’m introverted, so I was afraid I would sit alone in my room and never talk to anyone. Luckily, that wasn’t the case! For the first time in my life, I actually have to make sure my social life doesn’t take up the time in which I should be doing schoolwork. Or sleeping. Sleep is important.
