College Misconception #1: You’ll Have No Time

Written by    Oct 12, 2017

In high school, teachers, adults and even older students seemed to fill our brains with warnings and college horror stories.

Review of Circuit Cycle

Written by    Oct 12, 2017

Of all the group fitness classes I’ve tried at the RPAC so far, Circuit Cycle is my favorite. It consists of about seven minutes on the stationary bike, then seven minutes on the floor.

Written by    Oct 5, 2017

(Picture- Carson Yerian) Surviving Orientation (and maybe, possibly, liking it?) TIP #1 Fresh out of school one afternoon in mid-March, you’ll saunter your way into your house, barely mumble “good” when your mom asks how your day was, and let your backpack slide off your shoulder, down your arm, and plop down on the floor as you slowly fall onto the couch in a heap.
