What’s that we hear? Today marks 100 days until graduation for DePaul University’s Class of 2014! With graduation buzz in the air, we strongly encourage soon to be graduates to pull out those “college bucket lists” and start (if you haven’t already), checking things off that list. Whether it’s seeing a Chicago Broadway show, going to a White Sox/Cubs game, visiting that one restaurant joint you’ve always wanted to go, exploring a part of the city you’re unfamiliar with such as Pilsen, or DePaul related things – all of these are great to do starting now! Stay tuned in the next couple of weeks – we will be releasing a “Countdown to Graduation Bucket List!”
This Friday, January 31st is the celebration of the Chinese New Year (Lunar)! According to the Chinese zodiac calendar, this is the year of the horse.
What does the year look like to those born in the year of the horse? Here ‘s some quick information from the http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2014/01/09/chinese-new-year-2014-horse_n_4568979.html
Year: Born in 2002, 1990, 1978, 1966, 1954, 1942, 1930, 1918
The year of the horse means there is leadership associated with this sign this year, so your authority may increase, according to Ng. However, the impulsive behaviour of the horse can lead to recklessness, so stay away from gambling and speculations.
Work: Those in positions of authority will do well, but chancy businesses, like the stock market, are a bad idea.
Wealth: Don’t expect to make a lot money, and value the income you have.
Relationships: There won’t be a lot of excitement in your love life, and if you are engaged, you might want to delay your marriage until next year.
Health: Watch your health this year — you’ll get tired and can catch bugs easily. Make exercise and rest a priority.
Happy Chinese New Year to all those who celebrate!

Welcome back to Winter Quarter, Blue Demons! As we are in the midst of one of the coldest winters to note, this month OSI will be providing fast tips on how to survive winter in the Windy City every week.
This week’s focus is apparel- a very basic and important thing! Layers, layers, and more layers. The more layers the better. With the high wind chills, it is important to have every part of the body covered. Chances of getting frostbite are very high.
Some must have apparel items are:
A big warm coat
Gloves (we hear the touch screen sensitive ones are very useful and popular!)
Snow boots (to prevent slips in the ice and snow)
Scarf (to cover your face too!)
Modeling for us today in the OSI office is our Marketing Team’s Social Media Coordinator, Teresa! Be sure to check back with us next week on more tips on surviving Winter in the Windy City!
With the Thanksgiving Holiday approaching, let us reflect of what a whirlwind this Fall Quarter was at DePaul! In the midst of the business of a new school year, many forget to take time in their day to sit down, relax, and give thanks. Simply put, what are you most thankful for this Thanksgiving?
A fantastic reminder can be found in this adorable video here called “Jessica’s Daily Affirmation” where toddler Jessica goes all out and says everything she likes and is thankful for. It is such a feel good video that is the perfect pick me up!
The Thanksgiving Holiday is all about spending time with loved ones and expressing thanks in all ways and forms. Just like Jessica here, don’t forget to give thanks to anyone, everyone, and anything in your life!
