Keeping fit in college

Within the last year, I have gotten really into fitness. I have played sports my entire life, but that was because I loved the game. I never really did a whole lot of training outside of things related to my sports. But, as depressing as it really is, my body has changed a lot since…

The life of a college athlete

This summer has not only consisted of job searching and basketball, but I have also been staying active with our basketball team’s summer lifting program.

A few of my favorite things

One of the many things I liked about the holiday seasons was watching “Oprah’s Favorite Things.” In case you’ve never had the chance to watch the show, Oprah gave her audience a few of her own personal favorites – computers, appliances, cameras, clothes and even cars! If I had the opportunity to give an incoming…

Story Time with Garrison Keillor

Tuesday evening was a very special night at Hanover College. Garrison Keillor found himself on campus for a wonderful evening of storytelling. As a capstone speaker, and a very highly regarded one at that, Keillor packed the Horner Center. He spent the evening telling hilarious tales of Lake Wobegon to a sold out crowd. Students…
