The Dreamer coffee shop: coffee, art and aesthetic

Coffee is a huge aspect of life on a college campus and Central Michigan University is no exception. The local coffee shop, The Dreamer, is located on the edge of the campus and is a favorite of many students in the area.

The dreamer is known for its calming and interesting decor. Pieces like these are placed around the shop to bring a soothing aesthetic to the shop.

International student Yazeed Almutairi comes to The Dreamer to study because he is from Saudi Arabia and says it reminds him of the vibe of a big city in this smaller town.
The dreamer is full of interesting art pieces like this clock display. Some of the art in the shop is even for sale by local artist.

Intramural sports bring Greek lifers together

Central Michigan University is home to more than a dozen social fraternities. Junior, Garrett Ritterhaus, has belonged to Phi Kappa Tau for nearly three years.

One of his main activities in Greek life is playing intramural sports. Ritterhaus plays indoor and outdoor soccer, basketball and floor hockey.

“One of the best things to do inĀ Greek life is IM sports just because it brings a lot of people together,” Ritterhaus said.

Ritterhaus strongly suggested that everyone gets involved in IM sports whether you are Greek, non-affiliated, good or bad.

Learning about digital journalism

Hello everyone! My name is Amanda Fischer, and I am a junior at Central Michigan University. For my journalism 340 class we were challenged us to create a blog to share our multimedia creations. This actually scares the heck out of me because I have never made videos (well professional videos), photo slideshows or audio tracks before. With that being said feel free to give suggestions, comments, and encouraging words. Bare with me, strap on your seatbelt, and enjoy the ride!
