The Day in the Life of a Twenty-Something New School Girl, As Told By Comic Strip Artist Sarah Andersen

College, for most humans, is that small awkward moment between the “best days of our lives” and the “real world.” But, for the 20-something female population it’s a bit more complicated. From dating, to our daily commute, to period problems, Sarah Andersen creates the perfect snapshot for each of these moments through comic strips.
