What I Would Tell My Younger Self

By Samantha Wieder
October 16, 2014 - 11:07pm

As a junior in college, I finally feel like I'm fully past the stage of petty high school drama. Let's be honest, once you get to college, the high school drama you dealt with four years carries into freshman year of college- just with different people. After my freshman year of college, I transferred to a new school and the silly things I did to try and fit in during high school carried me as I tried to navigate my way through my new school. A year after transferring, I sit here a completely different person with some advice for my high-school self.   1. Don't Worry About What Everyone Thinks READ MORE

My First Semester Goals

By Melissa Chalson
October 3, 2014 - 10:02pm

  1. Learn to Balance Two Majors This semester, I decided that I am going to take on another major. Along with majoring in Human Development, I want to major in English Rhetoric. I am very nervous for this, but I am optimistic for my success and the new challenge. I chose to do this because I think this will be beneficial for my future career path. I want to go into the communications and/or journalism field so it just makes sense to do this major as well. I hope that this semester I’ll really flourish in my English classes and that all of this will be worth it in the end. READ MORE

My First Semester Goals

One of the best parts of classes starting again each fall is the chance to set new goals for yourself. The start of a new academic year is almost like New Year's Day: School Edition. Many students have similar goals in mind like getting good grades, getting more involved in clubs and organizations, and having a good time. While I share all of these goals with my peers, I have a few of my own unique goals this fall semester that I'm looking forward to accomplishing.     1. Getting Accepted to Study Abroad READ MORE

May 10, 2014 - 10:06pm

College is known as the time where you will make life-long friends, explore new things: good or bad, and create lasting memories. Every year of college is a new chapter in the story of your life; each semester different than the last. I can definitely say that I have had some ups and downs this year, but I wouldn’t go back in time and change any of what happened. These are my top five memories this year (in no particular order).

My Sophomore Year Highlights

By Rachel A. Kaplan

As my sophomore year comes to an end, I find myself getting nostalgic and reflecting on the past year. I really enjoyed myself this year and a lot of fun, exciting things happened! I can't believe I will be an upperclassman next year (insert monkey covering face emoji here). Here are some of my sophomore year highlights: 1. I lived in new Dickinson! This year, I lived in a 4-person flat in Dickinson in Johnson Hall. I loved it so much not only because it was beautiful, but because it was such a step up from old Dickinson which is where I lived last year. After that, I think I deserved this luxurious living! I also lived with three of my closet friends here, so we had a blast and made lots of memories. ...
