Day in the Life-Thursday February 22

Recently, I realized that I haven’t yet shared with you all what a typical day at Wash U looks like for me. So, here’s a little glimpse into my life: 9:00- Wake up. Although I roll over to turn my alarm clock off, I don’t actually get out of bed for another ten minutes. After […]

Comfort Meals

Before coming to Wash U, I wondered about whether I would get tired of eating cafeteria food all the time. After all, even the best cafeteria food gets old after you’ve eaten it for a while.  For my first few weeks at Wash U, although I enjoyed the food, I couldn’t help wanting some variety. […]

Major Decision

It’s almost here. In less than a month, the day I worried about all of freshman year will finally arrive: the day I have to declare a major. And yet, now that it’s quickly approaching, I’m no longer worried. In fact, I’ve already started the process to declare my major, International and Area Studies. If […]

Why I Love Writing

Before I could even put words to paper, I was telling stories. My aunt remembers how whenever our families would go to the beach, I would splash around in the waves narrating stories about mermaids and sea creatures. After my brother was born, I had someone to help me act out my stories. I invented […]

Garden Glow

Every year, the St. Louis Botanical Gardens hosts the Garden Glow, where it covers the garden in Christmas lights for guests to walk around and enjoy. This year, in order to escape from the stress of finals, I went to the Garden Glow with my friends. We bought tickets to the event from The South 40, […]

Here are just some of those things: The people- Everyone here is so smart, it can be intimidating […]

Veteran’s Day Celebration

Wash U consistently brings in influential speakers and the Veteran’s Day celebration held on Friday was no exception. Speakers at the event included U.S senator from Illinois Tammy Duckworth and former VA secretary Robert A. McDonald. Besides those distinguished guests, there was also a panel of veterans who spoke to issues currently facing veterans, like […]

Sumers Rec Center

A year ago, my freshman year, Wash U completed this new state of the arts rec center. Although the South Forty Fitness Center is nice, since I personally prefer to run on an indoor track instead of a treadmill, I was very excited to see that the new rec center would contain an indoor track. […]


Located a short walk away from campus, the Loop is filled with great restaurants serving all types of food. Whether you’re in the mood for a barbecue place like Salt and Smoke or traditional diner fare like at the Peacock Diner or a build your own pizza places like Pi Pizzeria or a Mexican food […]

This past week, Wash U held its annual ArtSci Major-Minor fair. The fair is a great opportunity for undecided students in the College of Arts and Sciences to learn more about all the different majors and minors the College of Arts and Sciences has to offer. Representatives from all departments in the ArtSci College were […]
