Hello, Im Corey and I’m a Freshman here at Concordia College. I absolutely love it here, and am so glad i chose this as my new home. I am from a small town near the twin cities, Zimmerman, Minnesota.

I love dorm life, and all of the friends I have made at Concordia. Here I plan to study business and a possible minor in accounting or business management. When I have free time I can often be found in Olson forum or in Memorial auditorium playing basketball or volleyball.

I am an only child and am very close with all my family and friends, spending time with them is something I will always love!

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Posted in Corey Foyt on December 3rd, 2013 by cfoyt – 1 Comment

The most wonderful time of the year is truly upon us! With just 23 days until Christmas my excitement is beginning to build.

I absolutely love this time of the year.  Everyone is so happy, and almost always in a good mood. What more can you ask for? Around Concordia, decorations are going up, and I even spotted Santa in the Atrium the other day.

Dorm decorating is also in full effect.  My room has a few strings of lights, and of course a little tree to make it really feel like Christmas in Erickson 815.

My roommates for next year and I were discussing how we want to have the brightest house in Moorhead next year, but then we remembered that we have to pay an electricity bill starting in a few months, and I don’t think that stringing thousands of lights across our house is going to do anything but increase the bill and lower our pocket books.  We decided on seeing if our parents will pick up that bill for the year.

With the holidays in full force, it also means that finals are as well.  Emotions are high and so is the stress as the end of the semester is near.  I luckily, do not have any huge finals that I have to worry about thank goodness!

Thanksgiving Break

Posted in Corey Foyt on November 30th, 2013 by cfoyt – Be the first to comment

There is nothing like time home away from studies and school.  It’s even better when the reason for the time away is due to a holiday filled with family, friends, giving thanks, and a ton of great food.

My Thanksgiving break could not have possibly went any better than it did.  As it comes to a close, I sit in my room at my house, thinking about how much I truly have to be thankful for.  I could go on for days thinking about how much I am thankful for, but I’ve always came back to one thing.  The people in my life.

I’m a firm believer in not going into anything alone.  Life is tough as is, and going through it alone is something no one should have to do.  Everything I am thankful for stems back to the people in my life.  Surrounding yourself with people that can make you happy is some of the best advice I’ve ever received.

That is what I am most thankful for this holiday season.  The amazing people I have been blessed with in my life.  They mean more to me than anything in the world, and I know I would not be who I am today without those people.  I owe them everything.

Thanksgiving is a special holiday that really humbles you and makes you realize how good you really have it.  The older you get the more you realize that, at least I have!

So thankful for these two friends right here!

Awesome News!

Posted in Corey Foyt on November 21st, 2013 by cfoyt – Be the first to comment

I just got some super exciting news today that regards my trip to Vegas in less than a month!

This year, the NCAA is putting on a double header game that sponsors coaches against cancer.  The first game is between Marquette University and New Mexico. The second game is between Oklahoma State and Colorado University.  All four are great teams that would be so exciting to watch. Guess who is going?

Me.

The MGM Grand casino and hotel is sponsoring the event and is hosting them inside its entertainment complex. Vegas is one of the most exciting places to be in the world, and then throw in some of the best division one basketball teams in the world. Wow.  I cannot wait another minute to get down there!

My mom called me with the good news that she got the tickets, which are actually very close to the court.  She got only two tickets, one for me and one for my dad.  He almost never gets excited about anything sporting event related, but for some reason he was like a little kid filled with excitement when he found out that my mom got those tickets!

The game is prime time, and broadcasted on ESPN.  Hopefully I can get myself a spot on SportsCenter.  Look for me on December 21’st!

Spicy Pie Challenge

Posted in Corey Foyt on November 20th, 2013 by cfoyt – Be the first to comment

For one of my good friends 20th birthday we got a group together to go get a couple slices of pizza at Spicy Pie in downtown Fargo.  It was a great time talking over great food and celebrating one of our good friends birthdays.  However, the real fun didn’t start until Matt Ziebarth forgot his wallet.

Matt was probably the hungriest one out of all of us.  He hadn’t eaten since breakfast that morning and was complaining about how starving he was.  When it was his time to order he realized he forgot his wallet and had not a dime on him.  He proceeded to look to his left and saw the sign.  Spicy Pie Challenge, 18 inch, 7 topping pizza and it must be eaten in 20 minutes.  If you complete it, the meal is free and you also receive a free tee shirt.  Matt was all over this.

With out even the slightest bit of doubt in his mind, Matt began to dive into his pizza.  At a crazy pace he almost downed 3/4 of the pizza within the first 10 minutes.  We all thought he had it, and then he hit the brick wall.  The taste got more and more disgusting, and the food kept piling up in his stomach.  He was trying every tactic, including bouncing up and down to try and pack the food in his stomach and push the food in his mouth down his esophagus.

With valiant effort, Matt had failed, but provided our group and the birthday boy with a great amount of entertainment.  He says the next time he sets foot back in that place is the day he tries to do the challenge again.  We will see about that Matt.

Freakanomics

Posted in Corey Foyt on November 17th, 2013 by cfoyt – Be the first to comment

I’m not normally one to get lost in a book all the time, but when I do, it’s hard to pull it away from me.  I enjoy reading, just normally don’t have the time to do it.  So getting assigned to read the book Freaknomics by Steven D. Levitt was some good news for me.

IMG_1683The book was assigned to us in my Business 201 class.  Our assignment is to read the book and write a seven to ten page paper discussing the book and it’s contents.  The big part of the paper is writing about how the concepts in the book were discussed in our class.

The book is so entertaining and opens up a whole new thinking side to the reader.  One chapter is on how drug dealers and sumo wrestlers have things in common.  Just an outrageous topic.

The book has kept me entertained easily for a week now, and as I near the end, I can honestly say I am excited to write the paper!  First time for everything I guess!

Freakanomics has done a couple things for me so far.  One, it has got me excited to go to bed every night because I read it before I go to bed.  Two, it made me decide to start to read a book every night before I go to bed.  I’m just a studious cobber.
