Ending on a High Note

Hey everyone! I can’t believe I’m done with junior year and technically a senior now. I’ve been super busy this past week packing and flying back home, but I thought I’d squeeze out one last post about what I’ve learned this year.

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.

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!

Another Year Backstage

This past weekend, I had the honor of participating in WashU’s annual Lunar New Year Festival performance. This marks my third year working stage crew for this show, and it just keeps getting better and better.

Everything is Fine

In just a few weeks, the inevitable is coming: finals. And if there’s one thing everyone associates with finals, it’s stress.

Art School vs Everyone Else

“Oh, cool!” is what most other students say when I tell them I’m an art student.

Debate Weekend, or: My 5 Seconds of Fame

If you’ve turned on the news or been anywhere near St. Louis these past few weeks, you couldn’t have missed the anticipation in the air. Debate weekend was a blur of excitement for nearly everyone. In the few days leading up to Sunday, news crews from all around the US crowded onto campus to set […]

Summer Trips and Productivity

Every September, I always think about how summer felt so long and so short at the same time. In a twist, I had an internship the summer after my freshman year, but I did not have one this summer. Of course, that doesn’t mean that I didn’t make the most out of my time at home.

Taking the Leap and Moving Off Campus

Hey everyone! It’s been a long summer since the last time I’ve posted. My summer was quite productive, but I’ll talk about that in a later post. To kick off this new semester, I had quite the interesting week and a half. For the rest of my college career, I will no longer be living […]

Scott McCloud comes to WashU

Finals may have been destroying my free time, but it’s never too late for me to talk about one of my favorite events that happened this year.

Typographic Woes

Hey guys! Even though I’m an art student, I realize that I’ve talked about many things except my art classes! So I thought I’d spent this post describing one of my classes in particular: typography.

A Conventional Day

Hey, everyone! Sorry about my lack of posts, this past month has been quite the sleep-deprived ride. Fortunately, I’ve still been writing in the meantime, so you’ll hear a lot from me in the next few weeks.  But first, I thought I’d whip up a fun post about what I did last weekend. I went […]

Thoughts on Staying Home

With all this talk about studying abroad, I thought I’d share some insight into those that stay home.

Abnormal Recommendations

Hey all! Fall 2016 course listings are going to be released in a few weeks, and isn’t the one question that many students ask, “What class should I definitely take before I graduate?” Today, I have an answer for you.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Happy Chinese New Year! Last week was one of the most stressful and yet most rewarding weeks of my sophomore year. This is my second year on stage crew for the Lunar New Year Festival, a performance put on every year to both celebrate the Lunar New Year and to raise money for charity. LNYF combines […]

About Me

(I don’t always have pictures of myself. But when I do, I don’t even remember them being taken. Stay forgetful, my friends.) Hi everyone! My name is Alicia, and I’m excited to be one of 360’s new bloggers. I grew up in Tampa, Florida (so yes, I’ve been to Disney and Universal Studios many times), and I’m majoring in […]
