Sophomore Year in Review

This year has been absolutely wild with the number of things I’ve done. To start out my sophomore year, I was at Disney working. I had a love/hate relationship with the Disney College Program, but sometimes I wish I could do it all over again if I could. I met some great pals, had lots…

Communicating with Leaders

This semester I had the honor of being in COM461L with Elizabeth Carlson as the professor. The class was all about how to communicate to followers as a leader. It was also about different follower’s ways of processing leaders. I had had a bunch of fun in this class because it was with half of…

Social Problems

This semester, I was required to take social problems. In this class, I learned how to educate myself in learning problems happening in today’s world. From this class, I also gained the knowledge on how to present a social issue and how to get people to care about it. For leaders, it’s important to stand…

Who Am I? I’m a Loyal Alpha Chi

This year has been an amazing year for my sorority, Alpha Chi Omega. I joined my freshman year and wrote a blog about how I went through recruitment and chose Alpha Chi. Finishing up my second year of being an active member of the organization, I am pleased to say I’m so happy I got…

Mentoring my Mentee

This year, I had the honor of mentoring Emily Phelan through her first year of college. The year started out a little rocky just because I was out of state for Em’s first semester of college. I remember how difficult it was for me to adjust to college my first month, so I felt bad not…

Illinois + Children

One of my RSO involvements this year is my alternative break trip! This is the second trip I’ve been a part of. Last year I went to Immokalee, FL to focus on elementary education. It had such a lasting effect on me, I decided to participate in another trip this Summer. I knew I wanted…

No Trip, Some Problems

This year I was super excited to find out I was on the LAS in the D lead team. Last year as a freshman, it was one of my greatest memories in LAS, so much so I wrote not only one blog post but two blog posts about how much fun I had. Each year,…

Choose to Include

The week of January 30,  I chose to skip a week of classes to volunteer at the Michigan Special Olympic Winter Games in Traverse City.  I had done the Polar Plunge before on Central’s campus last Winter and I absolutely loved it. The Polar Plunge is a Special Olympics event that helps raises money to send…

Surprising Mentee

Ever since I knew I was going to Disney World for the first semester of my sophomore year, I knew I’d be missing my mentee’s first semester at college. I knew I’d be missing family dinner dates, helping her schedule, all the stuff mentors do for their mentees during the confusing first semester of college….

Hot Dog, I’m Moving to the Mouse’s World

It really hasn’t sunk into me yet that I move to Orlando, Florida this Friday. THIS FRIDAY. As in, TOMORROW.  I come back around the first week in January of 2018. I’m so beyond excited to learn what it takes to run a company as powerful and as successful as Walt Disney did. There, I…

Finding Mentee

Mentee, Hey there, I promised you this blog post a while ago before you knew who I was, sorry it was a little late! I know your first impression of me was horrible. Meeting you was a wild goose chase for Teddy, Katie, and myself. I’m not sure if I told you when I met…

Adventure is Out There

For my first week of Summer vacation, I got the privilege to spend it with 11 other Central students in Immokalee, Florida. We went on an Alternative Break for the issue of education. Being a future educator, I was thrilled when I got into the break at 7:30 am. From there on out, we had weekly meetings talking…
