  • Naked Bike Ride

    Tyler on Tyler's Blog
    The naked bike ride is a tradition at UVM where people strip down and do laps around campus. It has become less of a bike ride and more of a run, but the fact that people are naked hasn’t changed. First semester I had to go see what the NBR was, I knew I wasn’t [...]

  • Almost There

    Tyler on Tyler's Blog
    Freshman year has gone by fast, so fast that the school year is already almost over. I feel like it was a month ago that I just moved into the dorms and started here at UVM. The weather has started to get warmer, my classes are wrapping up, and school work is getting old. I [...]

  • Admitted Students Everywhere

    Tyler on Tyler's Blog
    It’s that time of year when prospective students are getting accepted and start touring universities trying to figure out where they want to spend their next 4 years. I remember last year when I had tour the universities I got accepted to, seeing all of the students and trying to picture myself as one of [...]

  • Back to the Days without the Internet

    Tyler on Tyler's Blog
    I recently added an anthropology class that has a semester long project. For the first homework assignment we were to research and answer questions about a certain culture that we were assigned. Like a normal student of the 21st century, of course I went on the Internet to search about my culture. After hours of [...]

  • Icy Conditions

    Tyler on Tyler's Blog
    Due to the lack of snow and the warm weather, the campus has become an ice arena. Numerous people have slipped, hurting not only their body but also their dignity. The best one was a girl who figured that she could shuffle her way down and hill covered with complete ice. She started slow and [...]

  • Back in the 802

    Tyler on Tyler's Blog
    Vacation was great, no homework or stress. I got to catch up with my old friends, sleep in every day, and see my family. But coming home after being in college is ridiculously boring, or at least from my hometown. There is absolutely nothing to do, especially in the winter. In addition you have to [...]

  • Finals Week=No Stress

    Tyler on Tyler's Blog
    Finals week means for many students a time for panic, stress, and no sleep. In high school I didn’t have to take finals, so I came to college expecting a ridiculous week of constant stress and no sleep. But luckily, my exam schedule worked out to be easy and relaxed. One of my classes doesn’t [...]

  • Thanking the Pilgrims

    Tyler on Tyler's Blog
    It is one week until thanksgiving break and it can’t come any faster. It has been three months of non stop schoolwork. Okay, maybe I took my own breaks in those three months, but we have not had a day off from school since Irene. This is the season where I thank the pilgrims because [...]

  • No More Cramming

    Tyler on Tyler's Blog
    Midterm week was pretty rough. The week consists of a lot of stressing out, cramming, and trying to get some sleep. It is the week where I realize that I am in panic mode because I’m trying to memorize the past 2 months work. Then I get to the day of the test and come [...]

  • Time Warp

    Tyler on Tyler's Blog
    For some reason, it seems like time is not the same in college. I can watch a TV show for what seems like 10 minutes and it has been two hours. However, when I am writing an essay, what feels a half an hour is 3 hours. Because of this, my time management is completely [...]

  • Hello world!

    Tyler on Tyler's Blog
    This is officially the first blog I have ever written. I guess I should start off by introducing myself. My name is Tyler and I am a first year student majoring in biology. I am originally from Windham, Maine so I pretty much couldn’t have picked an area more similar my hometown. Even though I [...]
