5 Reasons The NFR Is The Place To Be

One of the biggest rodeos of all time, who could miss out on the entertainment?

5 Reasons The NFR Is The Place To Be

th the The National Finals Rodeo starts this Thursday, December 1st and it is a time where so many rodeo fans and contestants flood to Vegas to watch one of the most popular rodeo events in history.

There are 5 reasons I think you should attend the NFR atleast once in your lifetime. (It is so worth it)

1) COWBOY GALORE- whether its the Wright brothers, Cody Teel or someone else. You cant resist the amount of Cowboys that come and compete at the NFR every year. It is quite amazing.

2) All the rodeo events you can think of- Saddle Bronc, Bull Riding, Tie-Down Roping, Barrel Racing, Bareback and did I already mention Bull Riding? The NFR has 7 main events and they compete for 10 days straight. Now how cool is that?

3) Cowboy Christmas- When they say Cowboy Christmas they mean it, it is literally shopping Heaven. It is opened every day from 9-5 and is free to the public.

4) VEGAS DUH!- When people think of Vegas they see money rolling and tons of fun going on. As the NFR turns the Thomas and Mack Center into Rodeo Heaven, Vegas helps shine the light on many tourist.

5) If you are a little bit of a rodeo fan, be ready for the time of your life.- The National Finals Rodeo Experience is phenomenal, whether you are watching the rodeo at the Thomas and Mack Center, MGM Grand Hotel or South Point, it is so much fun.

Whether you are watching it on TV or in person, the NFR is something you do not want to miss.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
