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!

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 […]

Why WashU?

It’s hard to believe that my college decision process started three years ago. Three years ago I applied to Washington University in St. Louis, and I haven’t looked back since. Here’s why:

Intersections Between Classes: Experimental Psychology, Physics of the Brain, Consumer Behavior – Oh My!

As we’re nearing the end of the semester, I’d like to take a moment to reflect on what I believe to have been the most cohesive set of diverse classes I have ever taken simultaneously. As a tour guide, I introduce myself: “Hi, I’m Aaron! I’m from Charlotte, North Carolina, double majoring in Neuroscience and […]

I Can’t Bey-Lieve It

Every once and a while, I’m reminded why I love living in St. Louis.

Just Another Thursday Morning

“Established 2008, WU-SLam quickly became one of the fastest growing groups on Washington University in St. Louis’ campus. With a solid performance crew and their weekly inklings meetings, WU-SLam tries to take poetry from the class room to the dorm room and turn it up on the stage. By holding monthly poetry slams, WU-SLam not only […]

“Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana.”

“Time flies like an arrow, fruit flies like a banana” – just one of the many biology puns that can be found in the Biology 2970 lab manual. It feels like just last week I was browsing online for a tapestry to fill the blank spaces of my new dorm room, and about three months […]

New Year, New Walls

I’ve got a blank space, baby.

Have a Great Summer, WashU!

Finals are over. Dorms are empty. Campus is quiet. Freshman year is officially over. I kept telling myself that I was so ready for summer, and yet, there are a few things I’m going to miss about WashU… I’ll miss the smell of Dauten in the rain, the smell of dried oatmeal in a mug […]
