• To Travel at Home

    Even if you’re planning to study abroad, make sure to explore in and around Austin in your semesters on campus! When you do visit another country, people will ask you about life back at home. I’m sure it will feel even better if you have specific personal stories to tell of Austin’s quirks and oddities rather than saying, “I’ve visited a few places with friends, but that one time I tried taking the bus…"

  • The Best Outfits to Rock This Fall

    Fall is my absolute favorite season. Yes, I am #basic, but that doesn’t influence it. I love college football, the leaves changing and the weather getting colder (well, not in Texas but other areas of the country). Also, who doesn’t love sweaters, boots and scarves? Below I have compiled some of my all time favorite fall outfits that I’ve worn over the past two years. Maybe you have pieces you can use to recreate them, if not I’ve included links to similar pieces located around the web.

  • Motivation Through Music

    If you’re studying a foreign language, I encourage learning at least a couple songs as you study. Aside from increasing your vocabulary retention, you will gain another connection to the culture and native speakers of your target language. Plus, it will give you an academic reason to spend more time listening to music!

  • I’m 19, Korean-American, and Terrified

    It’s a fact that many Americans are afraid of WW3 breaking out with North Korea, although the States probably wouldn’t be the first target if North Korea did attack. To most Americans, North Korea is just a foreign country that’s far away but a possible threat to their safety. But for me, it’s a completely different story.

  • Fun Things to do Outdoors in Austin

    Moving to a big city like Austin when you are used to a small town can be daunting and a little overwhelming. My first year in Austin I didn’t do anything in the city, simply because I didn’t know what to do and I didn’t know where to start. Since my time as a freshman, however, I have learned some cheap and fun things to do around the city for those days when you just don’t want to stay inside.
