UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSIONS at WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY in ST. LOUIS

Thanksgiving Dinner… with a Side of Crisis

I can almost taste the mashed potatoes on my tongue, soft and buttery, a spoonful I want to curl up and fall asleep on. My dreams are filled with heaping plates of mac n’ cheese, and my head is filled with google-searched recipes of caramel apple cheesecake. Thanksgiving is right around the corner. So what?

For Colored Girls (A Review)

Yesterday on November 21, 2019, I had the pleasure to attend the first show of ‘For colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf’. This 90-minute performance was written by Ntozake Shange and directed by Ron Himes. This production expresses the complexity of a colored woman’s identity and experience in the modern world […]

CHEERS to SENIOR SZN!

This Saturday, I made my way to the Contemporary Art Museum for a ~classy~ evening celebrating December graduates!

First snow of the season at WashU!

I am constantly reminded of how beautiful this campus is, and never is it more picturesque than after that first snowfall, when the old buildings stand atop a glistening white carpet.

Field Trips: Ai Weiwei Bare Life

One of the best reasons for having the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum on campus is close-in field trips, this is especially exciting when the museum is re-opened in Fall 2019 with an exhibition of work by internationally renowned artist and human rights activist Ai Weiwei. Our class meets in the new lobby and get […]

Tiramisu: A Pick Me Up

We enter Iva’s home again. Each of us holds a small glass or plastic container. They are empty now but soon they will be full of rich coffee soaked lady fingers and meringue mixed with cream. Otherwise known as Tiramisu. “Lift me up” is the direct translation from Italian. Tiramisu is n imperative as well […]

St. Louis Saturdays: Pumpkin Picking and Painting

Growing up in the metropolis that is New York City, I rarely encountered anything other than towering skyscrapers and rattling subways. The largest places of nature were Central Park in the middle of Manhattan and the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx. As such, I’d never experienced quintessential fall activities such as apple picking, […]

East End Adventures: Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum

The new east end is a vision. Large open spaces and walls that seems as though they are constructed of nothing other than glass. The fountains are lit at night and, when it’s warm, have become a beautiful spot to have a night time chat with a tea from Park Side. In my mind, the […]

Meet the Leaders

Recently, I had the opportunity to listen to Wash U alumnus Pushkar Sharma speak about his job at the UN and his career path from Wash U to the UN. This event was part of a series of events at the Gephardt Institute Office, an office at Wash U that helps students get involved in civic life in St. Louis.

Pursuit of Rapport

Listen to my first installment of the untitled blog-cast series where I give tips and share WashU stories. I am a student podcast co-host, and I am so excited to share this side of myself with each of you!

Fall Break = Visit to the Arch

Being new to a city like St. Louis means there’s a lot of exploring that needs to be done. I thought since the Gateway Arch is one of the main things that St. Louis is known for, I should start there! My best friend from my previous institution came to visit me from Chicago during […]

Into the Woods: Fireworks in Forest Park

We hear a loud noise, see a bright green glittering flash. I take off in an easy sprint towards the commotion. Fireworks. It’s Friday night in forest park. The glow portion of Balloon Glow is dimming, Balloons slowly descend to the earth. It’s the days heat is still simmering in the darkness and we mingle […]

Looking at Leadership Through Multiple Lenses

Leadership is a quality I’ve always valued and found necessary in my life. As an older sister of 3 (the featured picture of my 3 younger sisters and older brother), growing up, it was always my job to be a role model and leader for my sisters. Since they looked up to me, and followed […]

Walkable Weekend Adventures: The U City Farmer’s Market

It is Saturday in September. The weekend begins. No class, campus job, or clubs today. Time to dive deeper into readings and explore further in projects…as well as to parcel out for personal play. Saving homework for the afternoon, I’m kicking off the day by meeting up with a past roommate from the freshman dorm. […]

Sold Out in Two Minutes

Sold-out in two minutes. After being closed for expansion along the East End, the reopening of the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum in September was indeed celebratory. The opening exhibition in the new and improved space is Bare Life by the internationally renowned artist—Ai Weiwei. Before the official opening, there was a soft opening event […]

Summer Abroad in Paris! (VIDEO)

So, I finally made a video recapping my summer abroad! In June, I flew to Paris with other Wash U students and professors for a study program in the Anthropology department. It was a summer of art, love, adventures, and wayyy too many crêpes!
