So what’s better than the beautiful weather and amazing views everywhere you go? The fact that you get to brag about it to everybody back in Pennsylvania. Every morning I wake up to tweets and snap chats of all the horrible weather in Pennsylvania, and remember that I made a genius decision on going to Arizona.
Over the last couple weeks, we started working as student recruiters and administrative support at the front desk. Our boss, Ryan Hess is nothing but AWESOME! De’von, AJ and I hiked another mountain which can be easily compared to as Mt. Everest because it was so hard.
Megan and I have been recruiting at many of the community colleges with Ryan Hess. It’s been a learning experience so far, especially for me since I am a marketing major. With all the hands on experience, I have been getting a better understanding of how marketing works. Speaking to varies students about Wilkes University and how it has affected my life, makes me very proud to be a Colonel.
Over Spring Break, Marc and I went to the first annual BrewFest in Downtown Mesa. We got to meet the owner of Desert Eagle Brewing Company. Desert Eagle is a Brewing Company located in Downtown Mesa. Being 21, Marc and I were able to taste some of their beers, and it was a fantastic.
non-profit local dance company and Simply Three, a string trio. The two amazing group’s performances was like nothing I have ever seen before, in other words, they were SIMPLY EPIC! While I was there, Mrs. Ornstein was kind enough to show me around the Mesa Art Center. Trust me when I tell you, it’s phenomenal. The structure of the outside and inside made it win an award for the International Association of Venue Managers. If you ever get the chance to see a show at the venue or even walk pass it, I strongly suggest that you do.

Aj, Lien and I conquered the big bad Camelback Mountain. There are two trails you can take Echo or Cholla. It took about 3 total hours (up and down) with a few breaks along the way. The summit of Camelback Mountain is at 2,704 feet above sea level. It is worth the journey. The view is #BEAUTIFUL. You get to see the whole valley and multimillion dollar homes (Hi, EMMA Stone). I am not much of a hiker but I would like to start because I had such a great time.
After the hike, we went to Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles in Scottsdale. If you like soul food or never had it, I would go and try it. They have a variety of homemade southern food, that you can only get at home or in the south. Sunday morning they play gospel music and other times they play Hip-hop & R&B. And they have kool-aid on draft. I got the “Ribeye steak and eggs”. Lien and Aj got Lo-Lo’s, which is 3 piece chicken and 2 waffles.
Tips for conquering Camelback:
Bring Water (2 Bottles)
Go in the morning to avoid the Heat
Music (if going by yourself)

Megan and I went to the ASU baseball game, and in the great words of Marc Perry… “It was SICK”. Who gets to watch D1 baseball in February? It was nice getting to watch a baseball game in February and not be cold. Usually there is still snow on the ground in Pennsylvania and our team has to shovel snow off the field for practice. But here it was 80 degrees and sunny. It was a beautiful day for baseball game. Wild time, would do it again.
