Hi! My name is Kallie Eberling. I’m excited to be continuing my education this year at Concordia! I have finally decided, after changing my mind multiple times, on an English Education major. I hope to obtain a minor in Political Science, and I am thinking about law school upon graduation.

I’m from the small town of Plentywood, Montana. It’s located about 10 minutes from Canada and 15 minutes from North Dakota. We only have one stoplight, but we are the biggest town in our county!

At Concordia, I am involved in the forensics team and various clubs. I participate in policy debate in forensics, and really enjoy it!

I’m happy to share my experience here at Concordia, and I hope you can find some useful tips from my blog!

Skating at SkateCity!

Posted in Kallie Eberling, Uncategorized on January 29th, 2016 by Kallie Eberling – Be the first to comment

There is an awesome event going on tomorrow- Friday!

Concordia CEC (Campus Entertainment Commission) is hosting a crazy cool event on Friday night! CEC is taking Concordia students to Skateland! Skateland is a skate park in Fargo where anyone can come, rent skates, and skate (inside skating not ice skating!)

If you are interested in the event meet in the atrium with your Cobber ID at 7 pm. If you would rather drive yourself to Skateland you can meet everyone there at 7:30 p.m.!

Though the Skate park may usually be host to hoards of middle school students, it will now be host to around 80 Cobbers (CEC’s estimation!)

Skateland recently came under new ownership, and the new owners have plans to update the place a bit. Along with renovations comes a new name. The previously known Skateland will now be called Skate City!

I unfortunately will not be able to attend since I am on the Orientation Committee, and we are conducting interviews this week. I am extremely jealous!

 

1 Million Cups

Posted in Kallie Eberling, Uncategorized on January 27th, 2016 by Kallie Eberling – Be the first to comment

Today I attended an event that is hosted in the F-M area called 1 Million Cups. The event is all about meeting new people, and finding cool internship and job opportunities.

Normally, the event is held every Wednesday at Island Park in Fargo. However, today the event was held at NDSU’s Barry Hall in Downtown Fargo. Today was actually Internship Day. There were so many students and businesses at the event looking for students to fill their internships.

The event began with a few little presentations, and then each of the people looking to hire interns gave a 30 second pitch in front of everyone explaining who they are, what their business is about, and the amount of internships they have open.

There were more than 30 people lined up, and ready to give there pitch!

Everyone took notes at the event and wrote down the organizations they were most interested in. After the event the hosts, Emerging Prairie, posted an awesome resource of all of the organizations that were in attendance at the event and those who were looking for students to work as interns for them.

If you are at all interested in any of the organizations be sure to go ahead and email them!

Are you looking for something fun to do on a Saturday night?!

If so, you should come out to Mr. Concordia at 7 pm in the Centrum!

Mr. Concordia is an annual pageant like event put on by Concordia’s sorority, Lambda Delta Sigma. The even puts the best of the best men from various on campus organizations in a pageant like competition. This year there will be men represented from CEC, SGA, Forensics, Cobber Football, and more!

You can buy your ticket for the event at the door for three dollars. All profits from the event will go to the YWCA in Fargo.

This year, I know a few of the men competing! It will be fun to see friends showcase their talents. Last year, there were many portions to the event including talent and evening wear.

So if you want to attend an awesome on campus event that supports a great cause be sure to get to the Centrum early to find a good seat!

The best meal of the day

When a person asks which your favorite meal of the day is they probably assume one of three answers: breakfast, lunch, or dinner. However, by assuming this, they are forgetting the best and (actual) most important meal of the day!

BRUNCH!

This morning my boyfriend and I, along with two other couples went to Granite City in Fargo for brunch. If you have never been to Granite City brunch you are missing out! Granite City is a restaurant and brewery located near the West Acres mall. Brunch at Granite City is served on Sundays from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Be prepared to wait for awhile to be seated. Since the brunch is so enjoyable, many people make their way to Granite City. Today, the place was packed and we had about a 45 minute wait for a party of six. This was fine since it gave us more of a change to chat!

The meal is a buffet style with a ton of variety and options. Today I had an omelet from the omelet bar. You can customize your omelet and watch as the chef prepares it for you. After this I headed to the main buffet line where I had fruit, biscuits and gravy, and one of their famous carmel rolls!

If you are looking for a fun date spot in Fargo (that is delicious) be sure to check out Granite City!

Get Involved: MLK Day

Posted in Kallie Eberling on January 14th, 2016 by Kallie Eberling – Be the first to comment

This Monday (the 18th) is Martin Luther King Jr. day. Though not all classes are released on Monday, many are- including my Health Communication class.

Even if you don’t have all of your classes off, you likely have time to attend at least one of the awesome events being held to honor the man the day is held for.

  • To begin with their will be a fun activity of yoga and meditation at 8 a.m. in Jones A/B. This could be a cool opportunity to step outside of your comfort zone! Yoga mats will be provided (for up to 30 people- if you already have one you can bring your own!).
  • Chapel will be very cool tomorrow since there will be a ton of amazing poetry read.
  • At 10:30 an opening plenary session will be lead by Rozella White. White is a faith based social entrepreneur.
  • The key note speaker for the day, Nikole Hannah-Jones (an award winning investigative reporter) will speak at 7:30 p.m. in the Centrum. Her speech is titled, “The Modern Struggle for Civil Rights and the Legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.”

More information about the events can be found here!
