You can put anything that you would normally put on a slice of bread! READ MORE

It is FINALLY (almost) spring break. And I, just like every single other student at Bing right now, have just about nothing else on my mind! I am so excited for spring break and as much as we (I) complained about it being so late there is an upside! I think it's really nice to be home for the holidays whether you are hunting for eggs or looking for the afikoman this will be a spring break to remember! My plans unfortunately aren't going all Spring Breakers on a cruise or a Caribbean island somewhere but I am still looking forward to spending my spring break with family, friends and by shopping, and most importantly eating some really good food.

Getting involved and active on campus is one of the most important things about college life. Sure academics are important, but there is so much more to college besides that.

With one year to go, it's about time I look back on my time here at Binghamton University and make sure I do the things I've yet to accomplish.

There are some things that every student must experience (luckily I can cross all those things off my list). Whether you're running out of time like me or just beginning your journey, here are a few of my favorite memories of my time here at old BU. I hope they inspire you to get out there and make your own memories! READ MORE
