BREWing Everywhere

Posted on Friday, February 26th, 2016 by Kelsey Rausch


Every spring break, hundreds of Cobbers leave the Fargo Moorhead area to become responsibly engaged in the world. Many of them do it in very obvious ways (e.g. volunteering for Habitat for Humanity or learning about conservation efforts at National Parks with the HILT Sustainability trip). However, even if you go on a trip that is seemingly just for pleasure, aka my trip to San Diego, there is still a lot of BREWing that can be done. On my trip to San Diego in particular, there are many things I have done and learned about that have helped me become a better, more informed Cobber that can go out and more efficiently and intelligently influence the affairs of the world. First, San Diego is a very unique and environmentally conscious city, especially for its size. One of the big issues is water conservation. There is hardly ever any rain, so it is important to take quick showers and to not take water for granted. In fact, they actually say that they are going to go “take a four” instead of “take a shower”. This is to indicate that the shower will only be 4 minutes in length in order to conserve water! So even though we are hardly ever in a drought in MN, water conservation is still important and we should be focused on using less and being grateful for what we have!

Hello, there! I’m Kelsey Rausch and I am an English Education major from Elk River, Minnesota. It is my hope that I will be able to do extraordinary things with my life and I think I chose the right college to help me make an impact on people’s lives. I have some serious Cobber pride and couldn’t be more in love with this amazing college! I love music in every way that it can be taken in, whether that be listening, collecting, watching, or performing. I’d like to think I have great taste in music and I love connecting with people over a shared interest in music. I’m always up for an adventure and trying new things. I’m (apparently) very awful at telling stories, so I have to have crazy adventures to talk about to make up for my lack of ability. I am always in search of good books to read and I am grateful for God, who has blessed me with so much.
