UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSIONS at WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY in ST. LOUIS

How to Choose Your Major

It’s the first question I hear when meeting someone new on campus: what’s your major? For me, this question didn’t have an answer until my second-year at WashU. I came in undecided in Arts and Sciences, and officially decided in the Fall of my sophomore year to major in Political Science.

A new blogger saying hi!

Hi everyone! My name is Rebecca, and I am a rising senior (which is crazy, I can’t believe I’m that old). I am from the suburbs of Chicago (go Sox) and am majoring in Psychology with a minor in Spanish. At WashU I am really involved in the outdoors community, and run an orientation backpacking trip for first years. I also am training to be a DJ for our school radio show- my roommate and I are planning on mainly talking for an hour and seeing who listens.

All on My Own

So, you’ve made it. Congratulations! Even though there is still a good two months before the fall semester, as an incoming freshman, that first semester of your college journey is probably all you can think about right now (that’s all I did summer 2019 c:). For some, this is the first time you will be away from home for a long period of time, something that seems daunting. For others, this distance from home is something that you have been longing for. Whatever the case may be, it is important to create your own home while in college.

As the spring semester of 2021 comes to a close, I’d like to share with everyone how my junior year in quarantine has been. What did I like about it? What was unexpectedly hard? How did I spend my day to day life? And what can an incoming student expect academic life to be like going forward?

John E. Simon Hall Located on Danforth Campus here at Wash U, John E. Simon Hall stands as one of the largest academic buildings with nearly 80,000 feet of workable space. While it houses many of the inner workings behind John M. Olin School of Business, I find non-business school students (like myself) use all […]

My Semester Abroad…In Washington DC

At Wash U, there are a ton of different study abroad options should you choose to take a semester and go explore somewhere new. Because I’m doing the Brown School 3-2 program, I knew that if I wanted to go ~abroad~, I should do it as early as possible. In all honesty, I was looking […]

Women in STEM Panel

My favorite thing about being a STEM major is the fact that I am a woman majoring in STEM. I love that I defied the odds and chose a major that is usually chosen by men. Everyday, I’m reminded that I am serving as a representation that it can be done. I am sure I’m […]
