Over the course of four years it’s tough to keep track of all the things you’ve done and the things still left to do before graduation. Â From exploring the city of Findlay to participating on campus, here’s just some of the things you’ve got to do before you graduate.
1. Go to the Findlay Reservoir. I didn’t get to the reservoir until my senior year, and I wish I had discovered it earlier. There are paths around the water as well as in the surrounding woods. There’s also a great dog park and the park is usually filled with people enjoying the weather… when the weather is nice that is.
2. Take a walk down Main St. â€” no, don’t drive, walk! Â There are a ton of little shops that you’d just pass by if you were in … Read More »
I learned a valuable lesson last weekend â€” don’t leave your friends unattended in your room and do not leave your door unlocked! (Also, pranks lead to more pranks!)
I was chilling in my friend’s room down the hall from mine when I saw three of my friends come out of my room. I was confused about what they were doing in my building and even my room. I walked down and hung out with them for a little bit, but I needed to go to a friend’s room in a different building to watch the basketball game. So I left my friends with all of my trust in them that they wouldn’t do anything bad or break something.
A little way into the first half of the game, my friends were still not back from my room. What was taking them … Read More »
For mathematicians, March 14th is a very special day â€” Pi Day! Pi has a value of 3.14 and on March 14th the date corresponds to the value of Pi. In years past, I have always had pie in my math class or did something special to commemorate the day. However, this year I went without pie for most of the day. I was very disappointed I couldn’t share in the celebration of Pi Day. On March 14 I was doing some homework with my friends when the RD of the Haven offered us some strawberry cream pie!
When I heard there was pie, I was thrilled. Before I dug into the delicious looking pie I came up with the brilliant idea of smashing pie into my friend’s face as she was getting her hair done in her room. What was … Read More »
On Friday February 7, Student Government Association gave the students of the University of Findlay a reason to stay on campus for the weekend by bringing in Quote Unquote and the Plain White T’s.
My day started with a text from Preston, one of the SGA (Student Government Association) leads on the event, asking if I could come help with setting up the stage. Â So I threw on my neon staff shirt and headed over to Koehler. Â I helped run cables, set up lights, and was an extra pair of hands wherever I was needed until I had to go to class at noon.
By the time I went back around 6 p.m., there was already a line out the door and the space in between the two doors was packed with … Read More »
It’s the second week of Animal Handling class and we are already getting dirty and learning in the barn. With the temperature in the single digits and teetering on being negative, thirteen of us were out in the barn getting ready for a hour of fun. As we headed to the maternity room (a busy place this time of year), we were told our duties for the day. Today we would be processing three kids and an orphaned lamb.
When we process the kids and lambs that means were vaccinating and ear tagging. We vaccinate the kids and lambs with BoSe and CDT. BoSe is enriched with selenium, which animals in the north are deficient in, and vitamin E. Also, BoSe protects against white muscle disease and nutritional muscular dystrophy. Â On the other hand CDT, which stands … Read More »
On Friday when working with the cattle we broke a record for our shift! We started at 6:00pm and were all cleaned up and on our way out by 7:15pm. Right from working with cattle I headed to Dr. Linda Peck’s annual bonfire for Pre-Vet club.
On a chilly night there’s nothing like standing around a fire, roasting marshmallows and talking with other students in your major. There was hot apple cider to warm your insides along with Dr. Kerns’ grilled hamburgers, fresh fruit and lots of snacks. Behind the barn, in the arena, wasÂ a volleyball net for some intense volleyball games to get on their way.
Thank you so much, Dr. Peck, for hosting all of us!!Â I had a great time mingling with everyone and hanging out with friends.
A group of friends and I went from Dr. Peck’s bonfire back to … Read More »
Every once in a while I like to solve my Rubik’s Cube. It all started when I was in high school and got inspired to learn how to solve it. After the first time I solved it, I got sort of obsessed and started practicing and simplifying my own unique process on solving the cube. Once I get my mind on something, I usually don’t stop until I reach my goal. So please click the link below and check out my Rubik’s Cube solving skills. Thanks.
