LET IT SNOW!
Snow couldn’t have come any sooner, within the second week of October we had our first snow fall. If you’re a Colorado Native then this doesn’t seem like anything new, however if you’re from out of state then it is a enchanting view to watch. It was awesome to see students engage in their first snow ball fight or create their first snowman. The beauty of living on campus is to make the most of those unforgetable moments.

Unfortunatly, college is not all treats but Midterm exams are required for everyclass. My advice for incoming freshmen is to study one section at a time atleast a week in advance. Craming here does not work and you might find yourself a litte more stressed out then usual. Procrastination is something that will happen nomatter how hard you try to get out of the habit, but if you are really wanting to get an A then taking the time to study and use all of the school recourses will help you be successful. CASA (Center for academics services and advistmentist) is a great resource here on campus that offers tutoring, academic excellence workshops and even tips to study for each exam. CASA helped me out a lot in the workshops because they have worksheets relavent to what you are learning in class and practice exams before tests.
The beautiful month of October went by like a breeze, although I was busy with school and midterm exams I still managed to make this month as fun as possible. Me and my roomate decided to really get into the Halloween spirit and decorate our dorm, a tradtion for both of us back home. Our creativity brought a lot of spider webs, lights, candy and a ferocious spider which hung in our doorway. I couldn’t tell you how many compliments we received..or people who were too scared to come in, but in the end we both loved it! In addition to the decorations we painted pumkins and placed them outside our door. All of this was a great use of time while breaking from doing our homework and studying.
