HP Freshman 15: Winners

The finalists from our HP Freshman 15 contest are as follows:

Jace Roscoe::

The other advice I would give would basically be agreeing with someone else, but to be fair, I had the idea before seeing their post.

It would be very, very cool to have actual readers doing guest blogging. We wouldn’t restrict that to /just/ English majors, would we?

Heather Dziczek:

I am awesome because I don’t look like my picture any more — I was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma at 31 and now, rapidly approaching 33, it is behind me. I am writing a book about my cancer experience and hope to be able to publish it. (The picture is from July ’07.) In regular real life, I am a music teacher in inner-city Phoenix and an advocate for my students — their lives are already harder than mine ever was. While not working, I like to work out (especially with a trainer), play with my neurotic Chug (Chihuahua-Pug mix), dance (with or without my husband LOL), sew with my mother-in-law, play trombone in a community band. I am slowly learning to speak Spanish. Life is good, and I am grateful for it every day.


I need this laptop becaue I am a broke computer science major without a laptop or even a personal PC of my own.

All the finalists will receive a HP eco-friendly messenger bag and the first one to post a comment on here will receive the laptop. Also, two other college beings, Joe Kings and Michael Koan, will receive messenger bags.

They were randomly selected using a random number generator from random.org. We thank everybody for participating and will be awarding a small prize to everybody that participated within the next few days. All the comments submitted about the site (most of which involved the size of our RSS button) have been read and we are working on improvements to make College Being better.

Note from editor: The winner is Jace Roscoe. Jace, you will be receiving an email from us within a few minutes. Congratulations to the other winners. You will still get that awesome laptop bag.

15 Thoughts on “HP Freshman 15: Winners”

  1. I win!!!

  2. :(((((((((((((((

  3. Just in case the first name didn’t count!

  4. =[ damn! been sitting here hitting refresh for the past 2 hours!
    congrats to jace though!

  5. Congrats!!!

  6. Nice! Congrats Jace!!

  7. Lucky you Jace. Although if I won it, I’d give it to Heather Dziczek out of spite.

  8. If it makes you feel any better, so have I. And making comments like “I wonder if Ace fell asleep waiting to post this?” or “I’m probably not even going to be a finalist.”

    Thanks for the opportunity, Ace!

    By the way, there isn’t a secret ‘catch’ is there?

  9. No catch, Jace. Promise. Sorry to everyone that waited so long. It took me a while to organize all the entries.

  10. Hey Ace, wanna say thanks for that finalist announcement reschedule bro! Got my end of semester exams this week and it aint wise to cut back on sleep eh? Hehe, nice contest! Over & Out!

  11. Congrats to the winners…Yeah, I had been hitting the refresh button every 25-35 seconds for 2 hours :(

    Oh well, one day maybe :)

  12. Hey guys, next time you have to refresh something a lot like this, Firefox + tab mix plus, then right click and go to reload every. I set it to reload every 30 seconds for the fist hour and a half, then every 15 for the last half. Doing at the end of the 2 hours though probably used up a ton of bandwidth with everyone refreshing like crazy.

  13. Thanks for the hint Andy. I actually have Tab Mix Plus installed, but did not know of that feature. Very useful info!

  14. I just Googled myself to see what the top hits are (I do this periodically) and this page came up! I knew I had won a laptop bag (I can see it from here!), but I hadn’t looked at the site again (*blush*)

    Thanks :)

  15. It’s onerous to search out knowledgeable folks on this matter, however you sound like you already know what you’re talking about! Thanks
