My First Semester Goals

By Samantha Wieder
September 16, 2014 - 11:28am

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

By Melissa Chalson
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

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. ...

The semester is coming down to the wire as tests, and papers are increasing drastically. The good news is this means that summer is approaching fast! In an attempt to get some vitamin D after spending 10 months in grey Binghamton, I will be making plenty of trips to the beach and pool. I know I am not ready to be in a bikini just yet but if I implement these techniques I know I’ll be ready to rock it. READ MORE

My Perfect Spring Fling

  With just two weeks of classes left until finals, we can finally say that the end of the school year is amongst us and soon we’ll be heading home for the summer. However, we’re not quite ready to wrap up the year until one big event takes place and that event is Binghamton’s Annual Spring Fling. Spring Fling is taking place this Saturday, May 3rd and will feature musical performances from headliners Matt and Kim, carnival rides and games, and the campus community gathering together to enjoy what will be a (hopefully) sunny day filled with fun. As a transfer student I am so excited to experience my very first Spring Fling and I must admit, I have pretty high expectations. Here’s what I hope to experience on Saturday:  ...

Passover is that time of year where we have to survive without bread. Although this seems pretty much impossible it is totally possible to survive and even enjoy Passover. 1.) Who doesn’t love matzah? Matzah is everyone’s guilty pleasure. It is the best substitute for bread! To make it even more tasteful, try adding cream cheese, butter, or even Nutella spread! You can put anything that you would normally put on a slice of bread! READ MORE
