Student Experience Blog: Work


So, my summer is a little different compared to the last two years. My mom just finished moving from Boise out to Caldwell. Aside from school, I've lived in Boise since I was 2 years old. I'm currently paying rent at my Fraternity house, and now more than ever, I really feel that Caldwell is my home.

Seizing Opportunities

Many opportunities come across the life of our College students,it’s just a question of how and why should an opportunity be seized.Winter and Spring semesters of my junior year helped provide an answer.

Here I am, with a few short days left, struggling to make them count, grasping at any opportunity to allow the feeling of home to sink down deep, where I can keep it until I come back for Christmas.

So… This is my first post right?

There’s a lot of pressure here.

How do I start off this magical nexus of thought issued solely by yours truly? How should I begin to construct the fountain of brilliance and intrigue that will captivate the minds and hearts of prospective students, current students, alumni, parents and professors?

But really, I’m not exactly sure where to begin.
