The College Thread


#1

Seems like a lot of us here are college students who don't really have anyone dedicated to train with, so I thought I'd start a thread where people can post what school they go to and set something up via PM.

I'll start -

I'm at IUP in Pennsylvania training for strongman. Anyone else up there?

Damn you. Why couldn't you have thought of this when I was still in college?! Good-idea though. I will, however, be at U of M for law school come this fall. Don't know if any of my friends will be lifters. So, if anyone's in that area, maybe we can figure something out.

Unviv. of Maryland


#4

a few of my friends went to IUP...im originally from youngwood/greensburg area
..graduated from U of Cincinnati over 3 years ago..:0.


#5

I'm starting my second year at Boise State University in the fall.


#6

buffalo,

are you not a fan of the CU folk or is there another reason for that screen name?


#7

Maybe it's that storied IUP(whatever that is)-Colorado rivalry. Or that heated Colorado-Missouri rivalry. Man, what a grudge match.


#8

Haha, didn't notice that before now.

Nope, it's in honor of the Cheers line of logic when it comes to getting smarter.

As we all know, a herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest member of the herd. Predators will usually target the slowest moving members of the herd, killing them off, enabling the rest of the herd to move faster. As Cliffy sees it, the brain works in much the same way. Now, what do we know of that can kill brain cells...

Oh, Pretzel - IUP is the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. We won the Division II championships last year in football; I think we're bumping up to Division I to get our asses kicked this year. Something about funding.

#12

I'm at Kansas State University, in the middle of nowhere (Manhattan, Kansas). Great people though.

I'm training for powerlifting and shaming all the neanderthals into squatting. Oh yeah, and occasional strongman training on the side.

And I'm proud to say that the only other 3 T-Nation men in the city(2 true and 1 honorary) were all converted by myself to the true path. :slight_smile:

If anyone drives through, stop by and train with me.

Just saw your post and wanted top say hello. I was Born and raised in Topeka. Currently relocated to DC at American University for Grad School. Thank GOD only one more semester.

Let me know when you decide to start training for the Ironman.

I'll be @ Lake Placid 2006 and Florida 2006. Florida's registration isn't until November 14th so you still have time to take the plunge :-).
