Hi everyone! Today I am going to tell you about one of my favorite places on campus, the Collins Fitness Center.

So the best thing about the fitness center is that it is the perfect place for anyone on campus. You don’t have to be a body builder to be there! It has cardio equipment, a track, an extremely nice weight room with state-of-the-art equipment, basketball courts, locker rooms with showers, and a cafe/lobby area featuring Starbucks Coffee.
I took the liberty of getting a job here so that I can tell you more about it! We keep extremely clean all of the time. I personally clean all of the benching and squatting equipment every Thursday and vacuum every Monday.
For those of you who don’t like to work out the gym is also a great place for people watching. There is a wonderful cardio area set up on the second floor overlooking the weight section. You can just set yourself up on a bike and watch everyone that comes in.
I’d like to end this post by introducing a friend of mine, Keston.
Keston had this to say about the Collins Fitness Center, “I love it because I get swoll there.”
Well folks, that is all I have for now. Thank you for reading and I hope to see you all out here soon!
This was the first year that TU decided to do a “Color Run” for Homecoming! The idea was that students would run a loop around campus and members of SA would throw dry paint at them. What resulted were some super colorful runners!

I have a wonderful opportunity as a student of Conversational Spanish here at the University to branch out to the community and use my Spanish speaking abilities to help people out. My teacher is a firm believer in community service and so she has partnered with the local elementary school Kendell-Whittier, which has a large population of Spanish speaking families, to have her students help the school communicate with the parents. We have done reading sessions and parent teacher conferences with families who only speak Spanish. It was a major challenge to me as a student, but I’m glad I got the opportunity to learn and use my spanish in a real world environment. Spanish is hard, but I’m hoping with more practice like this I can really master the language.
So the past couple of weeks have had a lot of festivities mainly homecoming! (I apologize in advance for so many pictures!) It was definitely fun to go to all the activities but my favorites were the Ben Rector concert and the bonfire! I mean how can you not love a face like that?
But I was quite happy especially when he played my favorite song and all and all it was a good night!
The bonfire was pretty impressive and I’m pretty sure we were being baked during the fireworks show but I got lots of great pictures so I think it was worth it!
The next celebration we had was Kerry’s birthday and we planned a surprise party for her where we all wore lovely mustaches just because that theme sounded fun!
Today I got three care packages (our room was pretty much a disaster when I first opened them with so many things all over the place so I did have to clean up a bit):
You would think it was my birthday! Which I mean it actually was so more celebrations! I never knew how much care packages would mean until I got here! I am so thankful for my friends and family! Celebrations continue with Halloween and then a count down until Thanksgiving so I am quite excited! Until next time!
