My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.
The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.
In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.
I actually have a summary list of each of beer I drank in 2014. That “Beer of the Day” list can be found at link below:
I have a summary list on my 2015 “A Friend of a Friend” posts.
I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of Institution: Sierra Nevada College
Location: Incline Village, NV
The oldest private college in the State of Nevada is Sierra Nevada College and it is not very old.
It was founded in 1969 and don’t let the address fool you Incline Village, NV is actually on the north side of Lake Tahoe not far from the California State Line and south of Reno.
The school boasts enrollment slightly over 1,000 students and sure does offer up some interesting degree programs. It’s 30 plus majors go from outdoor leadership & sustainability to ski business & ceramics.
The sports offerings may be the most unique of any college I have ever seen. No indoor sports at all-no basketball-no volleyball but they have snowboarding and free skiing.
