Well hey there! Thanks for visiting my blog! Before I get to blogging about my life at IU, I thought you should know a little bit more about me before I got there.
My name is Greg Watson and I am currently a Junior here at Indiana University majoring in Marketing and Finance in the Kelley School of Business with a minor in French (Oui, je parle français). I also speak some Spanish and random Latin and German phrases. I come from an extremely small town (hence my blog title) in Northeast Ohio. Its name is Novelty (appropriately so) or Russell depending on whether you are mailing me something or just talking about where I live. Its about 40 minutes east of Cleveland and only about an hour west of the border of Pennsylvania.
So at this point you are probably wondering..."Why the hell did you choose to go to IU?!" Thats actually a great question and I wish I had an exact answer. I mean, I know I came here mainly because of the excellent business school. But other than that I honestly can't remember. My college search was by no means light. I applied to 11 different schools, visited somewhere around 30, and got recruited by countless others for swimming. But somehow in the end, I chose Indiana University and haven't had a second thought about it since!
I was directly admitted into both the Kelley School of Business and Hutton Honors College and received the IU Distinction scholarship and a scholarship through the Honors College. That definitely helped in my decision knowing that my parents wouldn't have to pay for full out of state tuition.
All through high school, I was very involved in extra curricular activities, sports, and working....and that hasn't gone away at all. To make it easy, I'll make a list of what I'm currently doing here at Indiana University.

Also, in my free time I like to go to the gym, hang out with friends, go to concerts, watch movies, go to parties, eat out, pretty much normal college kid stuff. But since I'm doing it....its gotta be awesome. I am also OBSESSED with shopping and clothes. I have some experience modeling as well, both print and runway and love being in front of the camera. I am currently in the middle of blogging my way through 365 days of outfits. If you're interested in checking that out the address for that is: gregthefashionisto.tumblr.com
Other interests include: LOVING IU. I am an avid fan of all things IU. From the theater to sports. I love it all. I have season tickets to both basketball and footballand love everything that involves either of them (i.e. tailgating and waiting in line for general admission).
This school has seriously changed my life. Bloomington in a great place and the memories I've made here will truly last a life time. From the people to the places, from classes to clubs. Indiana University is a truly amazing place and I wish I didn't have to leave after I graduate!
And always remember, Hoosier Pride Never Dies!
Until next time,
