Retail Management: The Guest Lectures

One of the coolest things about classes in the Olin Business School is that there will typically be a few guest lecturers throughout the semester. Here’s a sampling of guests who visited my Retail Management class!

Interested in engineering? We have a Special Visit Day for that! Or pre-med? We have one for you, also! In fact, we have special visit days planned throughout the summer for each academic division, as well as the more broad-based Academic Exploration Days.

A Pretty Average Day

Hey guys! You haven’t heard from me in a while since classes have been crazy, but I thought I’d do something quick about what an average day is like in my life.

WuStock is an all-day festival held each year at the Swamp, hosted by Congress of the South 40. This year, WuStock featured the Grammy Award winning artist, Daya! She performed her most famous songs, including singing The Chainsmokers’ “Don’t’ Let Me Down.”

Photo Journal

As my last year at WashU comes to a close, I have pulled together a series of memorable photographs. Without further ado…

A Day In the Life of Nancy

What’s up, everyone! Today, I would like to share with you all a day in Nancy’s life. Now I need to remind you that not every day of my life is going to be as awesome as this sounds, but this is a typical Monday for me.

Life on the South 40: Highlights

The South 40 (literally, forty acres of living space located directly south of the Danforth Campus) is home to about 3,200 students in twenty-three residence halls. Generally, all freshmen and many sophomores live on the 40 – so as a junior who still calls the 40 “home” (and, no, I’m not even an RA), I’m […]

Food Truck Tuesdays?

Hi guys! I have some huge gossip/news to share! There was a food truck on campus today for lunch. Yes, a food truck! Is this for real?? Rumor has it that this was a pilot project. If successful (which, judging from the gigantic line today), this might become a reoccurring event for EVERY Tuesday for the rest of the semester!

Familiarity in an Unfamiliar City

Hi everyone! I just returned from a fun trip to Las Vegas! The most unexpected thing happened there: I met up with a Wash U friend of mine, David, without planning at all. This shows that even though the world is gigantic, the “Wash U Bubble” is always home sweet home.

A Day In The Life

I’ve been looking forward to writing this post for a while now. My days at WashU are always jam-packed with activities, but it rarely feels too overwhelming. Instead, my full schedule keeps me moving, and allows me to feel continuously productive. Each day is unique, as my class schedule differs. This past Monday was particularly eventful though, so I’d like to take you through it.

Creating new knowledge through research

WashU students ask questions. They test theories. And they create new knowledge through their research. It doesn’t matter if they’re in a traditional science or engineering lab, in the library pouring through archival texts, or in the studio analyzing movement or art.

Alum named one of most creative people in business

Joining the likes of Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and actor/writer/comedian BJ Novak, WashU alumna Laura Javier has landed a spot on Fast Company’s list of 2016’s Most Creative People in Business. Javier has been a product designer for Facebook since she graduated in 2011.

Respites on Campus

When I was abroad, I never expected to find spiritual and calming places. At first, I had trouble differentiating between the plethora of churches in Italy. All of the frescoes started to look the same. I became frustrated. As architecture major, I should have been able to tell and appreciate the difference.

Let it Snow (Ice Cream)

Hey all! The weather is warming up here, so I thought I’d do a small vignette about one of my new favorite ice cream places!

An Intimate Evening with The Occasionals

I spent yesterday evening volunteering at a fun event for my internship. In my last post, I mentioned that I am a Development and Fundraising intern at Angel Band Project. Last night, I attended “An Intimate Evening with The Occasionals,” which was this Mardi Gras themed fundraising concert at Joe’s Café with music, food, and drinks.
