Senior Stress

9/22/2014

It’s finally senior year. This is the time majority of us were waiting for to either show off what we accomplished or just to get out of school and don’t have to deal with it again. It is the time for some people to grow up, seek their dream job, start their career or prepare go to graduate school. For others, at this is point, its make or break it for lifelong friends. Life is just beginning when you became a senior; forget becoming legal to drink, you will have rent, loans, and necessities that have to be paid after you graduate.

1.     We are happy to leave.

When we were freshmens, we became so accustomed to the college life we had a lot of fun with friends and then we started our complaints about college. The fun brings out the best in you and you made friends for life, but the complaining about things brings the negativity to your school but who hasn’t done it. Sometimes complaining about things caused you to gain friends because they were complaining too! You probably said at one point as a freshman, “I can’t wait to get out of this school” and that became your motivation to finish without even thinking about it. So now that you’re a senior, it's finally here your wish is almost coming true.

Campus Celeb: Lydia Agyepong

11/3/2013

 

Campus Celeb: Lydia Agyepong

Lydia Agyepong is Ghanaian- American, born and raised in Manhattan, New York. Her parents were born and raised in Ghana.  Lydia is currently a Resident Advisor of St. Mary’s, friends to many and Junior majoring in Biology with the anticipation of perusing a career in medicine. She introduced a new club to Jesuit campus called K-otic Activity. There are two reasons why Lydia decided to start K-otic Activity. The first reason, in her exact words, was “I have always had a special place in my heart for dance”. The second reason was that Lydia didn’t want to leave campus without leaving her own mark that she can call her own. So for Lydia, her way of achieving this goal was “by doing something [she] loves and something that almost everyone can relate to.”

Lydia said “K-otic Activity is all about being...chaotic! The club was designed to draw in a community that was centered around sharing the passion of dance and expressing styles of dance that Le Moyne's campus may not be accustomed to. My expectations of this group are to raise the bar in the uniqueness of performances and break down self-restricting comfort zones.”

The name of her fabulous and exciting group is an expression of the actual dynamic of the group. “K-otic does not focus itself around one style of dance; we literally do anything and everything we feel is right.” K-otic Activity consists of a combination of Spanish dance, hip-hop, Caribbean dance, and contemporary and is welcoming anyone to join. “We put no limits on what we perform, that's why we are known as K-otic Activity.”

Best Halloween Costumes on Girls

10/14/2013

It's October!! Yay! Costume time!! It's time to find one scary or sexy devious costume that would have the whole school talking until next year. However there's a problem... it is hard to find a really good costume, one that you would not see anyone else wearing or possibly heard of. Let's face it, sometimes we find a good costume and the whole night is blown by that one person who has the some exact costume as yours.YIKES! Your whole night could potentially be runied.We call those people copy-cats, to be nice, or HATERS, to be honest.

Well there's nothing you can really do but dig deep for cool ideas and possible alter the costume with another. Let's get real someone will always have the same costume somewhere else. But you can still look your best among the people around so here are a few ideas I would glady share with you for good costumes on girls.

1. Adult Jesterina

If you love Harley Quinn from Batman, the Jesterina is a great shadow costume. It's basically the same idea of Harley Quinn with the black and red colors but think of Batman in the Madevil Ages... Or close to it. The coolest Jesterina costume is found at Party City for $49.99...
