1. “Maintain 4.0, get into the nursing program, and work out three times a week.” — Liz Jensen, pre-nursing major.

You can do it! If you’re looking for a study spot, you might try out one of these places recommended by other Casper College students: the Doornbos Lounge in Liesinger Hall is known as a quiet, relaxing place to study; the T-Bird Nest in the Student Union; or study rooms in the Goodstein Foundation Library are great if you tend to get distracted by noise and people walking around; and when it gets a little warmer this spring, the rose garden near Liesinger Hall is another quiet spot.

2.  “I don’t have any concrete [New Year’s Resolutions] but I’m generally trying to create more personal artwork and finish it.” — Maddison Mahlum, graphics design major.

If you are seeking some new inspiration, you might check out the rotating exhibits in our two art galleries on campus.

The Student Activities office offers individual, dual, and team intramural sports for male, female and co-rec participation. The intramural activities are fun! You don’t have to be skilled to participate.
