Start Fresh, Stay Fresh (With A Little Fire)

Posted on Friday, October 11th, 2013 by

Today was a SPECTACULAR start for Homecoming weekend, if I do say so myself. Today was the first day of really big, really anticipated events, and if

everything goes as well as it went today, I won’t even have to worry about anything else.

Our first event tonight was Frosh Frolics, a talent show that exhibits freshman talent, along with transfer students every now and then. This years theme was “Start Fresh, Stay Fresh”. To open, the emcees Andrew and Bethany rapped a spin off of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song. They changed the words so that they could introduce themselves, as well as tying in some Concordia humor and introducing some of the acts. They did so well! I was part of the decorating committee for their event, and it was cool to see it all come together–Olson Forum is a tough space to work with just because it’s SO big and has little to work with in terms of hanging up decorations, but we

managed! It was such a well attended event that people went up to the cardio balcony and sat on the exercise

equipment so that they could sit and watch.

My friend Kevin, a transfer student, and a freshman named Erik covered “Little Lion Man” by Mumford and Sons,

and let me say, I was BLOWN away. They, along with a group that covered “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall” by Coldplay were my favorite acts.

After the final act of Frosh Frolics, Cobber Nation lead everyone to the Jake Christiansen Stadium to get ready for

the bonfire, our final event for the night. The bonfire has been a longstanding tradition at Concordia, and this year

was no different. Kelsey, Taylor, and Kari put SO much work into making the event run smoothly and to make sure everyone had a good time, and they didn’t disappoint. Erik Johnson, the alumni office chair

, lead our “Release the Beast” chant before lighting the fire, and I can’t even begin to explain how much

energy was running through the crowd; the amount of pride that flowed through everyone was overpowering. Being a Cobber has always been amazing, but tonight….tonight was something special.

  8. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to
    be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this
    is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser
    compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon.

    Many thanks

  9. Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, fantastic blog!

  10. Hurrah! After all I got a weblog from where I know
    how to in fact get valuable data regarding my study and knowledge.

Hello! My name’s Jasmine Lara, but most people call me Jazzy.

If I miraculously stick on my current career path, when I graduate from Concordia I will have a major in Social Work and Spanish, along with a minor in Psychology. Before I came to Concordia, I called Litchfield, Minnesota my home.

I’m a first generation Cobber, and the first to go to college in my family in general! Needless to say, I’m pretty proud of myself ☺. Because of this, I’m not taking my time here at Concordia for granted. Currently I’m involved in Hall Council, Homecoming Committee, and Echo Band, along with working for Dining Services and Maurices in West Fargo.

In my spare time, I like to lounge around with my friends and explore the wonderful place we call Fargo-Moorhead. On weekends you’ll often find me with my friends, whether it’s hanging out in one of their rooms, or at Kroll’s diner chowing down on one of their awesome milkshakes.

Concordia has brought me many new opportunities, some that I have yet to even figure out. Until I figure them out though, I’m just going to enjoy my time here—in my opinion, there’s nothing better than being a Cobber!
