    Amanda's Bio:
    I grew up in the Twin Cities, but now live up in Ely, MN near the BWCA, where my family has been for the last 7 years. I have three brothers, who I adore, and I enjoy fishing, playing basketball, and rough housing with them whenever I can. My mom has been a daycare provider since I was born, which served as inspiration for me to pursue a degree in Elementary education. I also love to paint, draw, and DANCE! I have been dancing for twenty years and am a dance instructor in Superior, WI....I can't imagine a life without it!

College Trends for 2012

With  a new year upon us, we can look forward to many new and interesting inventions, trends, and must-have gizmos for the months ahead.  What can we expect in terms of college trends and predictions for the year?  Here is a compilation that ranges from fashion to technology to food.  Check it out:

Technology Trends-

1. E-Textbooks will replace buying textbooks at hundreds of institutions, and will prove convenient and easy for student use through access via computers, nooks, and cell phones.

2. Cell phones will become even more prevalent and advanced (duhhh).

3. Online learning populations and availability will grow significantly.


1. Mixed prints and patterning will be big with clothing (as if it’s not already!).

2. Metallic tops and bottoms paired with denim.


1. Strength training

2. Core training (such as yoga and pilates)

3. Zumba and dance fitness


1. Ethnic cuisine (basmati rice, chutney, sushi)

2. Organic (coffee, free range eggs and chicken)

3. Late night dining (Jimmy Johns, Subway, and Dominos)

4. Food trucks (Many campuses implement these to travel school grounds and attract hungry students between classes. Genius!)
