Walking in a Winter Wonderland

by Dec 9, 2016

Home » Naturopathic Medicine Student Blog » Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Winter has finally arrived! We got our first accumulating snowfall on campus of about six inches. It was a lot more than the one-two inch prediction! The snow was dense, moist, and perfect for making snowmen. Too bad I’ve been stuck inside studying! 


December feels real now. The snow outside helps sets the mood, dedicated students and nervous energy fill the library, and holiday music and decorations are everywhere. 


Students are counting down the days until winter break! Winter break is special because it’s the longest break we get, about three and one-half weeks (depending on when your last final is) and almost everyone goes home for part or all of it.


This is my final blog post for this trimester, but I will be back again blogging for you in mid-January. In the meantime, please email me at [email protected] if you have questions about anything NUHS-related. I enjoy communicating with prospective students, and it also gives me ideas for future blog posts.

Be safe this holiday season, and have a happy new year!

Mary Simon

I'm a naturopathic medical student at NUHS. I started the Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine Program in January 2014. I was born and raised in Manitowoc, Wisconsin, a beautiful town on Lake Michigan. My experiences interpreting (Spanish to English) in nearly all medical specialties solidified my decision to study naturopathic medicine, as I saw a deep need for treating the body as a whole, getting to the root causes of symptoms, and using minimally invasive low-cost therapies to restore health.

This trimester’s theme has been about discovering a sense of balance imposed upon a constantly-changing schedule. In fact, the balancing act started during my last break from school. Although I had no school, I spent my break reviewing for the NPLEX Part 1 exam in...
