Reflection on the past month

October 31, 2011

Another Halloween Photo

The month of October has flown by, and it may have been the busiest month I can remember. However, tomorrow will bring a new month and time for a fresh start. Halloween weekend was great for me to go home for a while and just relax. Even though my house is about ten minutes from campus, I rarely have time to go home; I think it was the third time I’ve been home since school started. This week will be much more relaxed than last week for me, and I will be playing in our table tennis tournament on campus tomorrow evening without worrying about the homework I should be doing!

Today also marked the start of new athletic training rotations. This month, I am back on campus with the indoor track team, who I will be with until winter break. Which reminds me, winter break is in sight! Over break, I’ll be going to Blanchester High School (where I did my Friday night football rotation) and working a big wrestling tournament simply for the experience. It will be a great learning experience for me because I have never even been to a wrestling meet. If November goes as fast as October did, break will be here before I know it.

Halloween weekend

October 31, 2011

This weekend flew by, and I can’t believe it’s Sunday night already. I could definitely use a few more days off…

On Saturday we had an open house here at Wilmington College, with a day full of sessions and tours to show what our school have to offer. I thought it was fun working, and it was fun to meet a lot of new people.

After work, I went back to my apartment and got ready for the Halloween party that was on campus that night. I was dressed as a police officer, which many thought was a bit ironic considering that’s the profession I want to work in. The party was super fun! There were a lot of people out, and it was fun to see so many of my friends. I feel like it is important to go out and have fun like that every once in a while, and just drop everything else that is going on. Especially with the busy schedule I have. However, now it is back to business. I have a busy week ahead of me, and it is time to get serious again!

Time management

October 30, 2011

Part of the way I keep my life organized

Part of the way I keep my life organized

 Contributed by Brad Fuller

 

The past week may have been one of the longest of my college career: I had two clinical assignments in Dayton (each of which lasted 5 hours plus the drive), three nights of duty for being a Resident Assistant, Three hall activities that I hosted, two tests, and more to come next week. What is my point in telling you this? I’m not trying to say I have the toughest schedule at Wilmington College or that I deserve a break or anything, I’m saying that time management skills become crucial in college. On top of the events, you still need time to eat, sleep, exercise, and sports if you choose to participate in them. The student planner is no longer used for hall passes (at least that’s what it was used for at my high school). The planner or another calendar is essential for keeping track of everything. I personally used iCal, the built in calendar application on my MacBook. I prefer to type my events to writing them, but this method does not work for everyone. When you block out time for everything (including some leisure time), college life is much less stressful! Poor time management can make the experience much more difficult than it needs to be, which no one needs to have happen. This is a skill I am still working on, and hopefully it continues to improve the remaining of this semester and next!

A week with toothache

October 29, 2011

 Contributed by Maria Larson

I have been struggling with a toothache all week, which has drained my energy completely! It is my wisdom tooth that is causing me trouble, and it has been going on for over a week now. I went to the dentist yesterday though, and he gave me antibiotics for the inflammation I have. Basically the reason for my problems is that I don’t have enough space back there, which makes the tooth rub against my gums. I will probably end up pulling it once the inflammation has gone down. I’m not excited about it, but I think it is for the best because this week has been terrible! I have barely been able to eat, plus I have been hurting, and it has not been a good combination. No painkillers works either, so I hope this penicillin will have some effect soon!

Now I have to get ready for bed. We have an open house at the college tomorrow, which we call Fall Inside Look Day. I am excited to meet some new prospective students, and it is always fun to work with the staff in the admission office. Hopefully it isn’t going to be too cold either. If you are not coming tomorrow, I hope you check out some of our other open houses that we have coming up!

TGIF!!!!!

October 28, 2011

 It's finally Friday!! This week has gone by kind of slow in my opinion compared to last week. However, today was nice because we went on a field trip for my global issues class. This morning we loaded up Wilmington College's vans and headed to Cincinnati to tour the Freedom Center. When we arrived our tour guide showed us a movie about the Underground Railroad and the stories of John Parker and Reverend Rankin. We also got see the "slave pen" which is an actual structure that was built to hold slaves until they were ready to be sold. This "slave pen" came from a cottonfield in Kentucky and was transported to the museum by completely tearing it down and hauling it to the second floor of the museum to be rebuilt. 

The entire museum was very interesting I thought. My favorite part was definitely the slave pen because it was the actual structure that was used. Going on this field trip was a good way to end the long week! As for my weekend plans I am not exactly sure what I am doing. Hopefully something fun and interesting! I hope everyone has a good weekend!:)

Goodies for Goblins

Me, Justin Bieber, and Kaylee Cox as a hippie at Goodies for Goblins

Contributed by Brad Fuller

 

Last night, the Wilmington College campus hosted “Goodies for Goblins”, a trick-or-treat event for youth of the community in which they went through the residence halls and received candy from students that reside on campus. I went to the event and it was a lot of fun! I was dressed as a piece of pizza with a parrot hat (because these two articles obviously go together in costume form). There were even a few children that I recognized from the summer; I worked with Grow Food Grow Hope on campus and we hosted a garden camp. There are plenty of events on campus that the community can get involved with!

In athletic training news, the month is coming to and end and that means juniors and sophomores in the program will switch to a new rotation. Last month, I was with a chiropractor and at Dayton Sports Medicine Institute. Next month, I will be finishing up with men’s soccer and moving to indoor track when soccer is finished. I enjoyed my last month of rotations, but it will be nice to be back on campus and working out of our own training room. This will take me up until the start of winter break; this semester is flying by!

Ag Lab with the Vet!

October 26, 2011

 Yesterday we got the chance to have our ag lab with a vet! Dr. Ellis came to the Wilmington College Farm for our lab for a farm visit. He talked to us about what vaccinations he was giving, explaining how he was going to castrate the bulls and palpate the heifers. Once he was done talking to us we actually got to give some shots and castrate the bulls and palpate. We also dewormed the herd along with the vaccinations.

So far this has been a pretty good week considering it is already Wednesday and I have had 3 classes cancelled! It is crazy to think that we are almost in November already and before we know it it will be Christmas Break! 

This week, we have also started thinking about scheduling for next semester which is crazy! It feels like we just moved in! Next week I am meeting with my advisor to discuss what courses I need to take to fulfill my requirements. A lot of things are going on here on campus and its hard to keep up sometimes!

I hope everyone has a good Wednesday!

Fantastic Weekend!

Me and Holt after the Luke Bryan Concert:)

 This past weekend was terrific! Friday night I got to just relax with my boyfriend and his family because he came home for the weekend. Then on Saturday I cleaned Heidi and I's room before I headed off to the Luke Bryan Concert! I drove Holt and some friends up to Troy, Ohio for the concert where we met some other friends from Wilmington College up there.

The concert was amazing as I expected it would be. Lee Brice, Josh Thompson, and Luke Bryan were all very energtic and great performers! After a long time of singing along with the guys we headed back to Wilmington for the night. But not before we got detoured from our exit on the way home which added about a half hour to our trip home!  

The next day I headed home for the day to catch up with family and spend some time on the farm! It was really nice to get a home-cooked meal and see the combine in action while spending time with family! I am hoping this week goes by fast so I can see what this weekend has in store!:)

Friday night lights

A scene from a game

A scene from a game

 Contributed by Brad Fuller

 

The end of the high school football season is coming to and end, and this Friday will be the last game of the year that I am covering for Blanchester High School for my Friday night football rotation. I can’t believe that the season has gone so quickly! This has been by far the most fun rotation I have had in my time in the Wilmington College athletic Training program, and I will definitely miss working with the team on Friday nights. The team was playoff hopeful for most of the season, however they suffered a couple of tough losses that may have cost them a postseason appearance. All in all, they are a solid football team that is fun to watch.

Partially unrelated to Athletic Training, this week may be my busiest of my college career. I made a mistake of scheduling three hall activities in one week (I am a resident assistant for a hallway of freshmen) and am on duty three nights this week (where the RAs are in the lobby to make sure the building is secure and everything is in order). This week, I feel like the “typical college student”, as I am looking forward to the weekend on Monday!

Counting down the days until Christmas break

October 23, 2011

 Contributed by Maria Larson

I can’t believe that we only have about six more weeks of school this semester! Time is flying by! Not that I can complain, but it is still crazy and you wonder where the time goes. I like that our semesters are short, but it also makes them very hectic! Of course it doesn’t help that I take a lot of classes this semester, but wow it’s busy! Busy make the time fly though – that is for sure!

I am excited that I get to go home in less than 7 weeks. It has been too long since last time. I haven’t been home since spring break, which was in the beginning of March. I miss my family and friends so much! Being away from them is definitely the hardest part about being here. I do have great friends here though, but family is family.

Everyone struggles with being away from their families once they leave for college. I don’t think it’s less hard for people who live an hour away from campus, than it is for me. The difference is that people here can call their family members, or friends, at any time. Being from Sweden, I can’t do that. First of all it is expensive, second of all we are dealing with a time difference too. It is hard, but it is manageable… It makes me value the time I get with them a lot more. And it is going to make my Christmas break amazing!

Dayton Sports Medicine Institute

October 20, 2011

 Contributed By Brad Fuller

 

On Monday and Tuesday of this week and next, my Wilmington College Athletic Training observation hours were at Dayton Sports Medicine Institute (DSMI). The facility is about 40 minutes from campus, and is home to our sports orthopedic surgeon (Dr. Saunders) and two of our Athletic Trainers that are on campus every day. The facility at DSMI is incredible; they have any type of rehab equipment and strength training device you would ever need. The facility is located in a very large combined room; one end of the room contains the strength training facility in which athletes and regular people come in order to improve their fitness. Athletic trainers and exercise physiologists run the facility, so the exercises are appropriate for the individual and rehabilitative exercises are available from the athletic trainers. The middle of the facility houses physical therapists (which I have not observed yet) and the other end houses the hand therapists. During my observation with the hand therapists, I got to see some hand injuries that I would not normally see in the athletic training room on campus. Another positive about going to DSMI is that it is located right next to Chipotle Mexican Grill, the greatest food service establishment in the country! All in all, it is a great off campus experience that I will be looking forward to again next week.

DSMI is an impressive facility. Knew a ballplayer who used to go there frequently to rehab (successfully) from Tommy John surgery.

Westheimer Peace Symposium

October 19, 2011

 Today I attended my first Westheimer Peace Symposium at Wilmington College! For my global issues class I had to attend at least one session throughout the day. However, if you went to other sessoins you could get extra credit. So, I decided that I would go to three! The first one I attended was a presentation given by Charles Fishman who discussed the uses of water and different statistics reguarding water usage. The second session I attended was a presentation on resolving the shared water issues given by Dr. Aaron Wolf. And finally the third session I chose to attend was the showing of the film Gasland. This film gave an interesting insight to the hydralic fracturing for natural gas. It explained the process of fracturing and all of the harmful effects to the environment and the people living near the sites. 

Not only did I learn a lot today, but I also only had one class this morning and the rest of my classes were cancelled! Luckily this week is going by much faster because I cannot wait for the weekend!! I am going to a Luke Bryan concert with my boyfriend and some friends! Cannot wait:)

Table Tennis, DSMI

In my last blog, I talked about a table tennis tournament that the Table Tennis club would be traveling to. After playing in the tournament, I can’t wait to go back to another one! Although we didn’t get to officially compete, we got our ratings (which hopefully will be going up soon) and met some great people. We also got to watch some professionals play, which is incredible to see; Imagine sitting courtside at a professional tennis match, but on a slightly smaller scale. The club should be traveling to another tournament in Columbus, and Josh and I will get to advance in the competition!

In Athletic training news, today is the day that I start my new rotation at Dayton Sports Medicine Institute (DSMI). From my experiences so far, getting to observe of campus gives you multiple perspectives on the medical world and allows you to see how everything medically is interconnected. It also allows you get out of the routine of the Wilmington College Athletic Training Room and see how things are done at other institutions. I have heard that DSMI has a very nice facility, so I am looking forward to working there for the next two weeks!

Chiropractor and Table Tennis

October 16, 2011

 Contributed by Brad Fuller

For the next two weeks, I’ll be observing Dr. Stromberg, a chiropractor who practices right across from campus and is a huge Wilmington College promoter. I spent my first two days there on Monday an Tuesday, and it was really neat! I don’t want to be a chiropractor, but I feel like I learned a lot of useful information by observing there. In the athletic training program here, we take Head, Neck, and Spine Evaluation our junior year. Learning some information about the spine before hand will only give me an advantage in the class. Yesterday, I learned some basics about reading x-rays of the spine and what to look for when there is a spine issue. I obviously have a lot to learn, but I still got to learn some basics that I did not learn in class!

 

On another topic unrelated to athletic training, I will be playing in my first table tennis tournament this weekend! Josh Kincaid, a junior here, recently started an official Table Tennis club on campus, and we will be traveling to Indiana to participate in an official USA Table Tennis tournament, where we will receive our rankings after playing round robin style and will be able to compete in tournaments in the future! Its an exciting thing for me since I don’t play any sports any more and it will be an opportunity to watch some very good players and possibly improve my game some.

Stressful week, but finally weekend!

October 15, 2011

 Contributed by Maria Larson

This week has been SO stressful! I have had midterms in several classes, and in my hardest class the midterm was split up in three parts, so I have had it hanging over my head all week. I hate when that happens, cause I rather just have it over with in the beginning of a week, than having it all spread out. It makes the week feel so long too. However, it is over now, and I am just going to let it go! This weekend I need to relax, catch up on some sleep, and just do things for myself.

I have definitely neglected sleep this week, and averaged about 3 hours per night, but sometimes that is what you need to do. Therefore I am glad the weekend is here, and I am going to try to just take it easy. Of course I have a lot of exams and assignments for next week as well, so I can’t be completely lazy, but hopefully it will fuel me a little for next week though!

I just got done working out, and I am about to cook me some lunch and then enjoy the beautiful day outside. The sun is shining, but it is kind of cold and windy. Both the boys and the girls have home games in soccer tonight, so I will for sure go watch that, but other than that we will see how the day goes!

Longest Week of College Ever!!!

October 14, 2011

 Oh my goodness!!! This week went by so slow and seemd like it was never going to end! After having only a four day week last week, going to classes for a full five days seemed terrible! But, life goes on. 

Yesterday was Ag Visit Day here at Wilmington College. I remember the good ole days when I was still visiting campuses to decide which college to choose. But, before you know you it I am already almost two and a half months into my freshmen year of college already! I guess its true when they say ' time flies when you are having'!

It is now finally Friday afternoon and the weekend has begun! This weekend there not a whole lot going on except I am going to a Bengals/Colts game on Sunday. I have never been to a professional football game so it shall be interesting! Hopefully the weather will be decent for it. 

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Fall is here! Got to love Fall

October 13, 2011

Contributed by Ray Travis

Where do I start? So much to tell you guys! Well let me start by saying that the month of October has been a great with sharing my birthday with some great friends on this campus! On the other hand I had to make a critical decision not to continue to play football here for personal reasons. I still wish my Fighting Quakers the best for the remainder of the season. My decision came from just trying to concentrate fully on my education here. Since that’s going to pave the way for my future. Its been a nice long career of playing football with 15 years under my belt.

Furthermore I have more time on my hands now that I have quit playing football. At first it was really strange. I kept on asking myself, “what do I do now” but eventually I found something to do with my time. Here on campus I have three different jobs. First one is blogging for admissions, second is calling alums for phonathon and finally working sporting games for Carl the equipment manager. Its always a good feeling to have a little cash flowing your pockets as a college student. Specially when $100 can last me a month or two.

On another note school is going pretty well. Well, I have decided to get a tutor for economics because I refuse to let that class pull down my gpa. Also, my piano recital is coming up pretty fast and I can’t wait to perform. Trailer for “The Breakfast Club” turned out pretty good. Next we have to do a infomercial. Marketing is getting more interesting every class thanks to our professor Ellen. She might stray off subject a little but she’s a great teacher!

Chicago visit

October 12, 2011

Me by a Swedish

Me by a Swedish "Dala-häst" in Andersonville, Chicago.

Contributed by Maria Larson 

So last week we had our so-called fall break. It only gave us one day off, but considering the short and intense semesters we have here at Wilmington College, even one day is something to be thankful for!

Since my mom was still here visiting over our break, we decided to take a road trip up to Chicago and see what that city had to offer. I was able to get out of my only class on Thursday, so we were able to leave already Thursday morning. The drive wasn’t too bad. “Only” six hours from Wilmington, and it was definitely worth it! I loved Chicago! We stayed at a simple hotel very central in the city. It didn’t matter that it was simple, cause we were never there anyway. We spent the days wandering around in the city. What amazed me about Chicago was that it is such a calm city, but yet so busy and big. It has beautiful parks everywhere, and being by the lake just makes it even more beautiful! We had really good weather too, so everything was perfect!

The last day we also visited a part outside the city, called Andersonville. It used to be a Swedish community, 100 years ago, as many Swedes moved from Sweden to United States and ended up in Chicago. It was a really small part of the city, and all we really did was to visit a museum, and eat at a restaurant with Swedish food. It was nice to see though. I like history when it comes to something that personally touch me like that. And even though I am not an immigrant here, it is nice to in a way relate to others that came to the US – just like me!

Weekend full of shopping

New outfit on Monday morning after a weekend full of shopping!

Contributed by Maria Larson 

Me and my mom did a lot of shopping this weekend! It has been nice, both to do something outside of Wilmington, but also of course to buy some new chothes!

On Friday we drove to Kenwood once I was done with classes, and spent a few hours at the mall there. I like Kenwood, as it has a variety of different stores in different price ranges, and it's only about 45-50 minutes from Wilmington! I played a game in Mason at Wall2wall that night, so we spent the afternoon in Kenwood before we had to leave for the game. Then on Sunday we went to the Outlet mall by Jeffersonville, which is also a very nice mall to shop at - even closer to Wilmington (about 25-30 min). It was a nice day outside so it was a good day to walk around, as it is an outdoor mall, and check out the stores and do some shopping. What's funny at Jeffersonville is that a lot of students from Wilmington College visit there, and/or work in some of the stores, so you always run into people you know!

Other than that it has been kind of a lazy weekend. I haven't done much, as my week of school had been very hectic, and I felt like I needed a break. But now I'm back on track, and it's time to hit the books again! It's nice that we have a short week though. Our fall break falls on the end of this week, and we get Friday off. Me and my mom are actually leaving Wilmington already Thursday to go to Chicago! We are going to spend the last few days of her visit there, before she flies back home on Sunday. It will be nice, and I am excited!

Homecoming weekend

This past weekend was Homecoming Weekend at Wilmington College. Friday night we had a hypnotist come and put on a show at the TOP. The TOP is the name of the cafeteria at Wilmington College. It is located on top of the Pyle Center, which is the second floor. Saturday was the big day of the weekend! In the morning we had Greek (frats & sororities) bed races where the Greeks race beds and compete against each other! After that we had the judging of the homecoming banners and then the football game at two o'clock. Unfortunately our Quakers did not win, But it still fun to see the homecoming king and queen at halftime! Later on that night there was a homecoming dance in the McCoy building, next to the Watson Library, that was put on by APB which is an organization that puts on many events and activities for the students of Wilmington College. After the homecoming dance I went to one of the frat houses, Sigma Zeta house, which most students just shorten down to the Sig house. Finally the weekend had to come to an end. Sunday, I went home to visit and hang out with my family, get some laundry done and catch up on some homework. I had a great homecoming weekend. Stay tuned and keep updated with mine and other student bloggers posts to see what happening at Wilmington College.

Fall is finally here

 Contributed by Kelsey Sullivan
Thursday I did get a chance, after my homework was done, to attend the
women's soccer game versus the Waynesburg Yellow Jackets. Unfortunately,
The Lady Quakers lost! They are now 3-5-2. Along with sporting events
there are lots of other things to do around in and around Wilmington
this time of year. For instance, in the actual town of Wilmington, Ohio
in Clinton County, There is the Wilmington Haunted Hollow Ride which is
held every fall in the fields. The ride costs from ten dollars to thirty
dollars depending on what you choose. There is also a Slaughter hotel
and a Nightmare Penitentiary as well if you are interested in haunted,
scary events. For a non-scary fall activity there is the Fall Harvest
Bash and the Great Pumpkin Patch! There are over 20 acres of pumpkins to
pick from; you can enjoy a hay ride and fun games like a pumpkin
throwing contest. I will be going to the Grandpa's Pottery open house.
It's located in town at Grandpa's Pottery and it's a great time to get
some bargains! Most of the pottery is on clearance and there will be
demonstrations along with refreshments! These all happen on different
days so you don't have to choose any fun events over another. There are
more activities if you're interested just look up October events in
Clinton County, buy local first. This October and Halloween seem to look
like it will be a lot of fun this year! I still don't know what I am
going to dress up as for Halloween. Typically one of our frat houses on
campus throws a Halloween bash and everyone comes out and dresses up for
some fun!
Until next time keep updated with your Wilmington College student
bloggers!

Procrastination and all-nighters

October 01, 2011

Old picture of me, when I was in high school, during another all-nighter.

Old picture of me, when I was in high school, during another all-nighter.

 Contributed by Maria Larson

All nighters. They are a horrible phenomenon, and unfortunately I have experienced them way to often the past two years.

Freshman year was the worst. Then I procrastinated a lot of schoolwork because of other fun things to do with friends on campus, and ended up sitting up late during nights and get the work done. Don’t get me wrong, I have good grades, so apparently these all nighters works for me, but it’s still not anything I am proud of. It also adds on unnecessary extra stress, plus I like my sleep.

I have gotten a lot, lot better with doing my work on time, and stay on top of assignments, but this week I failed that for the first time this semester. I had a really dense assignment in my Research with Descriptive Statistics-class, and I think I underestimated it at first. That got back at me, so there I was sitting the night between Thursday and Friday, trying to get it done on time. I ended up getting two hours of sleep that night, before I got up again to continue working on it. I got it done, and I turned it in, and that is what matters I guess. But I have now again promised myself to never let myself get this behind again… It’s going to take days to catch up on my sleep!
