I go see a performance of the classic play “Spring Awakening.”

The Reddit Co-Founder Comes to Campus

The best place to study during finals week

I really shouldn’t give this away like I’m about to, but I’m a nice person. You’re welcome in advance. Anyways, Rudolph Hall is the coolest and simultaneously least known building on campus. The earth and planetary sciences building, not many people have reason to just wander in. They have no idea how much they are […]

WUSTL Climbing Club, also known as the best thing ever.

I might have given it away in the title, but I’m a huge fan of the WUSTL Climbing Club. Somehow, at the beginning of the semester, I found myself signing up for a membership. I had no idea what I was getting into. It all started in January when my friend Keaton invited me to […]

To the Moon!

Tonight isn’t a typical Friday night for me. It’s 7:30 PM, and I’m currently sitting in room 162 of Mcdonnell hall, surrounded by gray-haired St. Louisians that I don’t know. I feel like a kid sitting at the adults’ table at dinner. I’m at a meeting of the St. Louis Astronomical Society, with a guest […]

Tim Bono, who’s been presenting this series all semester, teaches a class on happiness, but decided to a […]

The Wonderful World of Being a Junior

Don’t let the title fool you; I’m not a junior yet. However, I’m getting to reap the benefits of…juniority? I just signed up for my junior classes, and boy was it great to get all of my first choices this time. Not only that, but I’ve gotten over the hill regarding distribution requirements, and my […]

The Curious Case of U City Grill

There’s a restaurant on the Delmar Loop that I’ve been hearing about constantly ever since I got here almost two years ago: the famous U City Grill. I’ve been meaning to go for what seems like ever, but have never gotten around to it. Part of my reason for procrastination was that I hadn’t been […]

I wouldn’t trade this place for the world.

I almost didn’t go to WashU. I almost didn’t become the person I am today. I almost missed out on going through all of the life-changing experiences that have helped me grow as a person. Thank goodness I came. It wasn’t just the classes. It was the people. It was the chats at 5 o’clock […]
