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 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 University: Chadron State College
Location: Chadron NE
Sometimes colleges that are located in rural tucked away parts of the country have to be nimble and offer unique amenities to attract the best faculty, staff, and students. One of those perks that is offered at many large research universities is child care. In fact the list I found online listing the top 40 schools for offering daycare to students with children was dominated by schools like the University of Michigan, Florida, Purdue, and Washington.
There was one smaller school on the list and that was Chadron State College. Chadron State College is a four-year public college in the Nebraska State College System in Chadron, Nebraska, United States. The college is located in the northern part of the Nebraska Panhandle, in the Pine Ridge area.

The Chadron State College Development Center Lab has provided services for students and faculty members at Chadron State for more than 40 years.
The CDC serves as both a functional childcare facility for boys and girls between the ages of two and nine, as well as an educational resource for students.
Chadron was founded in 1911 and has an enrollment of slightly less than 3,000 students.
Chadron State College is the youngest state college in Nebraska. It was first established as the Nebraska Normal School at Chadron in 1911. In 1921, the Nebraska Legislature changed the name to Nebraska State Teacher College at Chadron. It wasn’t until 1964 that the college was renamed Chadron State College.
Chadron State is a NCAA Division II member and sponsors a rodeo team.
