^That’s me

Hi everyone! For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Collin Hoeffner and I’m going to be attending Oswego in the Fall, majoring in history. Throughout the rest of the summer, I’m going to be blogging to you guys (whether you like it or not) about how I’m getting ready to go away to college, and how I plan on taking on these new responsibilities while away at college for my first semester.

But before I jump on all those topics, you probably want to know a bit about me before I start preaching to you guys, because honestly, who wants to listen to some stranger telling them what to do?

So, for starters, I’m from Long Island, NY. I’ve lived here my whole life, and going to Oswego is going to be the first time for me living away from L.I (Long Island). Yes we ask for Caw-fee in the mornings, and yes, I pronounce Long Island as Lawn-Guy-Land. What may be a little unconventional about me, however, is for the past three years I’ve been competing in the US Legend Car series, racing on a range of race tracks weekly in NY, CT, NJ and PA (I’ll leave one of my videos at the end of this). So, I know a bit more than the average guy about your car. I follow sports, primarily the NHL and the NFL (How about them Bruins and Patriots), but I’ll watch whatever’s on. Personally, I’m planning on trying out for the club hockey team in college, as I play ice hockey a bit.

I chose Oswego for a few reasons. One being the fact that the school is a bit far away from home. I wanted to get the classic “college experience” of living away from home, and finding myself, if you will. Another is because I REALLY enjoy the cold. I ski quite well, I like snow, and just the overall cold. Taboo right? However one of the most important reasons why I chose to spend my next four years of Oswego is because Oswego has a great teaching program. In fact, one of my teachers who I have grown very close to the past four years is an alumnus of Oswego! So perhaps I’m a little biased. I’ll let you decide that.

Anyways, that’s me, in an extremely shortened version. If you guys want to talk, or maybe want me to focus on something in my upcoming entries here, message me on Facebook, or shoot me an email at choeffne@oswego.edu OR Choeffner6897@yahoo.com see you all in the fall, and maybe I’ll see some of you at the July 12-13 orientation!
