Free Stuff

As a freshman on campus, it’s my first opportunity to be completely inundated by free stuff. My entire life, I have loved free stuff – I mean, which kid doesn’t? But until you get to campus, especially, it seems, Case Western’s campus, you don’t really realize how much free stuff you can fit into a tiny dorm room. This Friday, I would have been on campus for two months. And I’ve got SO MUCH STUFF. To date, I have seventeen free t-shirts (which, personally, is an amazing and awe-inspiring collection in itself). I have various Case merchandise – foam fingers, cups, and ID holders. Then there are the fairs – the career fair, the Spartan Spirit Fair, the choices fair. I’ve gotten books, folders, gum, thank you cards, and literally anything else you can imagine. There’s so much free stuff!

But Case Western has one specific event, each week, that really takes the cake in terms of free things. It’s called Thwing Tuesdays. Put on by the University Program Board in our student center, Thwing, these areevents that involve two very important elements. First, there is food. Every stereotypical “starving college student” loves any sort of free food, but UPB brings in some really good vendors to showcase to the Case Western community every Tuesday from noon to 1. For example, we have had Jaipur Junction (a really great Indian restaurant), Melt (an awesome grilled cheese place thatputs anything and everything into a grilled cheese sandwich), Ben and Jerry’s, Qdoba, and more. All sorts of wonderful restaurants. After the food comes the fun!Each week, UPB brings in some sort of childhood event. For example, the event that really draws the biggest crowd is Create a Critter, which is similar to Build a Bear – but it’s free! I made an elephant this year, on the very first Thwing Tuesday of the semester, which I am eternally happy about attending. We’ve also had spin-art t-shirts, crayon makers, coloring books, cookie cutter makers, and, once, we had free Legos, which were pretty awesome! See, when you come to college, maturity levels definitely go way down. Today’s a Tuesday, and at Thwing, we got coloring books and Qdoba. I was so excited about my Disney princess coloring book, but when I texted my mom about it, she seemed a little confused… guess I forgot that I wasn’t supposed to be so excited about princesses!

What surprises me the most about Thwing Tuesdays is that not enough upperclassmen on campus seem to know about it – so I thought I’d share it with you, the upcoming Case students, so that, if you choose to come here, you’ll have that little tidbit of knowledge to take you through the first semester. My schedule generally allows for it, and I know it’ll last for it second semester, since Thwing Tuesdays are officially my favorite free event at Case WesternReserve University and I’ll definitely be scheduling the next seven semesters I have here at CWRU around it!

I remember going to University, I was swamped in freebies, a lot of it made of plastic and a lot was ironically from the 'Friends of the Environment' society. I studied languages, but have ended up in the steel doors industry, so I suppose life is never that certain. Great post as always, and very enjoyable to read. Thanks.

Wow spin art t-shirts! How'd those turn out? Would be awesome to have something like that where I am, would keep the kids quiet :/ but at the moment I have to make do wearing a fluorescent pink hi vis jacket at luton airport vallet parking far away from my home in Hatfield. Keep up the blogging!

Clean site! I discovered this when browsing on Bing News. Do you possess any techniques on exactly how to get listed? I’ve already been struggling for a while however I never manage to get there! Lots of thanks.

One thing I wouldn't skimp on are really comfortable clothes. Once you're over the initial excitement of being in college, the first things you're going to gravitate to on cold early morning classes are your comfiest jeans, sweatpants, sweatshirts, etc. So make sure to have plenty of those handy.

I have learned newer and more effective things via your website. One other thing I want to say is that often newer laptop or computer os's are likely to allow a lot more memory to be used, but they furthermore demand more memory space simply to run. If an individual's computer is unable to handle far more memory and also the newest software package requires that ram increase, it could be the time to buy a new Computer system. Thanks

Comments

Thanks for your blog post. Some tips i would like to bring about is that laptop or computer memory ought to be purchased if your computer is unable to cope with anything you do with it. One can set up two RAM boards of 1GB each, by way of example, but not one of 1GB and one with 2GB. One should check the maker's documentation for own PC to make certain what type of memory is required.
