After seeing this clip from the movie "Rudy" I started using the word Rudy to describe anyone who goes hard all the time.
I am inspired by Rudys-- you never catch them slouching around campus complaining about how many days of school are left. They're always energetic and interesting, and they push everyone around them to be their best.
All of the students who have posted their blogs and gotten started are Rudys, and the most recent has the cool claim of actually being named Rudy. Check out his blog here.
