Winter Finals in the Lou

Here are some fun and relaxing places to let off some steam during winter finals (take it from a native St. Louisan)

Registration Season

Ah, tis the season to register for classes. This is an exciting time, but it can be rather stressful. Here’s a few tips for planning your schedule.

Who Would’ve Thought?

If you had told me two years ago that I would be ever standing in front of 150 sorority girls, reading a speech about how they should elect me to represent them in any way, I would tell you that you had the wrong girl. It’s not something I could have pictured, but I’m so happy with it.

WILD: Walk In, Lay Down?
