ATTN: students with a .edu email address

Amazon is offering a free 1 year subscription to Amazon Prime (Which usually costs $79 a year. Perks include free 2 day shipping, and $3.99 overnight shipping): (url shortened with

This is being marketed towards college students but all you need is a valid .edu email address, so teachers and alumni might be able to benefit from this too (though the Terms of Service does say they have the right to ask for proof that you are a current student).

I apologize if you have already heard about this amazing deal. I just want to help spread the word on this before they stop offering it. I am not an employee of Amazon, nor do I gain anything from people signing up for this service.

woo hoo

we went up in rankings from 51st to 43rd in the US News World Report...

So I just graduated from the great institution of what is known as DePauw University...Read my post if you want to get a glimpse of a recent DPU alum's life.

Operation Holiday Card

Operation Holiday Card is up and running again this year!  This is a wonderful program that distributes Christmas, Hanukkah, and holiday cards with short personal messages to troops deployed overseas during the holiday season.  This program was a huge success last year collecting over 16,000 cards.

            I am asking people to write a note to an unknown service member inside your card, seal it, and send it to the address below.  Cards can be for Christmas, Hanukkah (please write this on the back of your envelope), or general Season’s Greetings.  Your words of support mean so much to these men and women.  Remember each card you send is another service member touched.   

            This program works because individuals take this initiative to spread the word and collect cards with in their lives.  Please pass the word about this project to everyone you know.  Feel free to post it in your journals, other communities, promote it in your workplace, or your place of worship.  One woman from my church last year collected 200 cards in her workplace. How many cards can you collect?  Cards can be sent to:


Operation Holiday Card
226 Albany Ave  

Shreveport, LA 71105


            This year’s deadline will be Dec. 3, all cards must be received in Louisiana by that time.  The cards will need plenty of time to get overseas.  I thank you for your support of this wonderful project.  There is so much support for our troops as they spend the holidays away from their families.

            Please look at our new website for more information.  If you have any questions please feel free to e-mail me at


Thank you and God Bless you,

Just had dinner with DePauw's new president, Dr. Brian Casey, and I have this to say: he is awesome. Very different from Bobby B, but in good ways. Anyone else making it to the inauguration?

Sooooo...did any other of you alumni out there get the ridiculously nice invitation to President Casey's inauguration, or am I just special somehow? (None of the other DePauwples here at Paige's seem to have gotten one.)

Winter Term

So, I've got one more question!
I have a winter term thing all set up. I've got my paperwork filled out and everything. I'm going to work at a school for emotionally handicapped students. However, the paperwork says that an internship must last 6 weeks. Uhh... is that right? WT itself is only like 3.5 weeks. How can they really make independent experiences )not on-campus) last 6 weeks? Also, since this is at a school, they start back when WT starts and I can't keep going into second semester just to make it last 6 weeks.
Any information? Are they strict about that "6 week rule," or could they make allotments? Is 6 weeks even correct?

Next summer, I want to live on campus and do research or work in the Bonner Scholars office. I'd like to housesit for a professor for the whole summer if possible to cut down on costs for housing. If anyone knows anyone who needs a housesitter all summer or any tips on how to get my name out there, please let me know!

Just in...

I don't know whether to be happy or afraid that we're now #1 in beer consumption...
