A few weeks ago, I was walking on campus with a friend of mine from the pre-vet program, and we were talking about Thanksgiving and Christmas. Suddenly Khalil (my friend) asked me, “Hey! Do you want to come to my home for Thanksgiving break?” His mother had invited me and some other friends to their home once before, so this time I knew I had to go. I went to their place for Thanksgiving in Columbus, and how those five days went is hard to explain in words!
It felt for a moment that I could be at my own home! Khalil’s mom, Aunt Maleha made so many delicious foods for us every day. For every single dish she made a vegetarian version just so that I could eat. On an off note, did I tell you that I’m a vegetarian? … Read More »
“You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” is a saying that many people are familiar with, and even live by. However, I’m not sure I find much truth in this saying. You’re never too old to take on a new challenge!
This semester at the University of Findlay, I got the opportunity to tackle a new and fun challenge that I’ve always wanted to try– piano lessons! Here at the university you can take lessons for different instruments, ranging from vocals to bassoon. I’ve wanted to play piano ever since I became involved in music, but never had the chance to give it a try. The Applied Music: Piano class was the perfect time for me to take a swing at piano.
The cost of piano lessons was one of the factors that led me to not trying out the piano … Read More »
Since the beginning of this semester, a lot of things have changed. I would be lying if I said that one of those things wasn’t my motivation but hey, that’s natural! As a young adult, I have developed immensely in this short amount of time. Being away from my parents, in a new setting, and having to manage time by myself has taught me a lot about myself thus far. I sometimes wish I could write a note to my past self to read before I started my freshman year. Self-reflection is a wonderful thing. So as the end of the semester approaches, I wanted to take some time to write a letter to future freshman on all the ins-and-outs of starting your first semester at the University of Findlay!
Dear incoming freshman,
You’ve made it! You’re finally on your own. Now … Read More »
If someone asked, “What does Delaney Haas love?,” the Cleveland Browns would be one of the first things mentioned. I adore the (currently) winless AFC North team that is always full of surprises and chaos. I have been a Browns fan since birth, cheering on the team through thick and thin. But little did I know my outlook on the organization would transform into something much more than love for the team.
My journey with the Cleveland Browns started back in September 2015 when I attended the inaugural Browns Edge Career Development Summit. I was able to network with some of the Browns staff members, which helped me land some incredible game day opportunities that season including being a secret shopper, managing 15 Findlay volunteers and interning on Dawg Pound Drive. I then interned in Berea the following summer as a … Read More »
For me, choosing which college to attend was an easy decision. I have known since the seventh grade that I wanted to go to the University of Findlay. Findlay is my home, in more ways than one. Yes, I was born and raised a “Findlayite.” My family has lived in this town for generations upon generations; I don’t know anything else. This is not the only reason, however, that I feel Findlay is my home. When I am on campus, I get a sense of home and I can pursue my career in an excellent program. I am confident that this is where I belong, and where I am supposed to be. It just feels right and I am fortunate for that. For others, choosing a school is not as easy as it was for me. Perhaps you are reading … Read More »
