K-State Students Have Lunch With Warren Buffett

It is like if you were a Physics student, and you got to sit there and ask Einstein questions, or if you were an English major and you had Shakespeare walking around a room giving you insight into the ins and outs of the English language.  Continue reading “K-State Students Have Lunch With Warren Buffett”

The semester is over, I walked out of my last class this Friday and it felt so surreal that I am now five semesters down and only three to go. Time flies when you are having fun, time truly flies when you are at Kansas State. Here’s a recap of my Fall semester in photos. Continue reading “Fall Semester Photo Recap”

Guest Blog: Take Your Time

img_1198

A blog post from Rome by my great friend, Grant, who is finishing his Fall semester there. I hope everyone enjoys reading it as much as I have.

Seeing a different way of life has changed me. Right now, I am in the final legs of studying abroad in the beautiful country of Italy. I have been here since August, and although I arrived just three and a half months ago, I have changed more in the last three and a half months than I ever have before. I have seen how other cultures live. I have seen how people live in Ireland, England, and of course Italy. I see how the world views us Americans. Our large portions, our big cars, and our new president. Continue reading “Guest Blog: Take Your Time”

Getting Your Money’s Worth: Part I

ddef1b60-3585-0130-5f4f-005056945a4e

As a Finance major, a good chunk of my college education revolves around the concept of minimizing cost and maximizing profit -or in other words, getting your money’s worth. So this is a concept I think about quite often, and a lot of times it finds its way into my personal life as well. We all like to get our money’s worth when we spend it, especially being college students, but if you are having a hard time running out of month before running out of money, here are some things you can try to maybe stretch your dollar just a little bit further.

Beginner’s Survival Kit

Palms sweaty? Knees weak? Arms heavy? Well, that is okay, you do not have to know much to start. Being an expert in anything is all about putting in time, making mistakes, and being curious. Today I felt like writing about every time I was super nervous about starting something I have never done before, and how that nervousness is sooner rather than later replaced with confidence.

Beyond The Football Game

Tailgate outside Bill Snyder Family Stadium. K-State vs Texas Tech. 10.8.16

For a while since I’ve moved back to Manhattan I had not fully understood football or the experience around a football game. I had not grown up watching the sport so I did not know enough about it. Well, having been at K-State for a while now and given how much everyone around town gets excited about the football program here, I could not help but get on the bandwagon -and to be honest, it has been a fun ride. So here are three things I learned being a K-State football fan. Continue reading “Beyond The Football Game”

What is K-State All About?

nametag

It was almost three years ago when I first set foot on campus here. It was winter break time so Manhattan was not very crowded. Ironically, at the time I had no idea where I was. I mean, I knew I was at the home of Kansas State University, but it was not until I started school here the following Fall did I really know where I was and what this place really is and what it stands for.

“The Most Dangerous Worldview is [That] of Those Who Have Not Viewed The World”

raindroplets

A very important part of growing and developing is learning about the world around us. Sometimes we forget that the world is an unimaginably huge place. There are more than 7 billion other people out there and almost 200 countries, think of that the next time you think Cardwell Hall is crowded. In fact, just think of all the different cultures, attitudes, beliefs, and thought processes out there. People live their lives in very different ways and that makes the way they tackle their issues or the way they get to solutions vastly distinct. Think about how learning about just one or two different cultures or languages can open up a whole new world of possibilities and make you see the world  around you with not just one but two or three sets of eyes.

Thinking outside the college degree

Getting an engineering degree is pretty tough work -of course I wouldn’t know about that, but people tell me. I just assume if someone goes through the trouble of getting an engineering education they wouldn’t think of doing something else for a career. Continue reading “Thinking outside the college degree”
