Ten on Tuesday

1. Where did you go to college?

Iowa State University - Go Cyclones! :)

2. What did you study?

Apparel Merchandising and Design with an emphasis on Merchandising and Consumer Behavior

3. Was college really all that it was cracked up to be?

Oh yes! I loved all four years and only regret not trying to make it last longer! :)

4. How far were you from home?

Only about 30 minutes which was perfect for me!

5. Did you have the same roommate all four years?

Nope, I had several roommates! Two in the dorms my freshman year, then lived in a sorority house my sophomore and junior year (so I had a 52 roommates...), and lived in Des Moines and commuted my senior year.

6. Where did you order food from at 2am?

There were lots of options... Jimmy Johns or Gumby's pizza was my favorites!

7. Did you date in college or were you tied down?

I dated the same guy off and on throughout college until meeting a guy in Kansas City during my internship before my senior year and dated him throughout senior year.

8. Funniest drunk college moment?

Hmmm... probably my 21st birthday. I did a lot of shots... and it's documented. Below is a picture of a paddle that my friends made me. On the back is the list of shots I took, who gave it to me and my signature. It's interesting! My four best friends and I all have one. We were big on interesting, unique birthday gifts in our early 20s. (which is an entirely different blogpost that I may share sometime...)

9. Did you make it to class on time?

Most of the time! I hate being late so if I had to walk in late I probably didn't go... I rarely skipped though, so I made sure to be on time! ;)

10. What was your favorite class in college?
I loved all my merchandising classes and especially the retail math classes. We learned the math that buyers deal with (which was what I originally wanted to be) and I just adored the professor! She was the cutest, stylish little Asian lady!

What are some of your favorite college experiences?

I didn't know you were in a sorority! Me, too! :)

I had a blast in college. I miss Friday afternoon naps and Target runs with girlfriends and Saturday morning brunches where we'd talk about who made out with who!

Heather said...

Hah we had a Gumby's just off campus for us. That was some GOOD food!

Jamie said...

Fun questions and answers!

We're getting a Jimmy John's in town soon and I'm so excited!

I loved college too :)

Hope you've had a great day!

1. University of Central Arkansas
2. Computer Information Systems emphasis on Programming.
3. Oh yes! I loved it.
4. Well, my mom lived about an hour a way, my dad lived in the same town.
5. Oh no. That's a post all in it's self.
6. Taco Bell was our only option!
7. The first year and half, I was tied down. Then I dated all kinds of crazy boys till my 4th year. Then the 4th and 4th year I dated my first husband (another post in itself).
8. OMG! At a mixer (I was a Tri-Sig), I got so trashed that I passed out in the front yard of a frat house, then puked on a guy's shoes and told him our grandma's were going to marry us in a nursing home, then ended up dating the guy 2 weeks later.
9. Yes, otherwise I skipped the class - which happened too much.
10. Hmm, honestly, I'm not sure that I had a favorite.

I love these meme's. It's so fun to learn more about bloggy friends.

And, um, WOW... there was a TON of handwriting on the back of that paddle. Looks like you took about 50 shots!!
