This Saturday, I made my way to the Contemporary Art Museum for a ~classy~ evening celebrating December graduates!

Summer Abroad in Paris! (VIDEO)

So, I finally made a video recapping my summer abroad! In June, I flew to Paris with other Wash U students and professors for a study program in the Anthropology department. It was a summer of art, love, adventures, and wayyy too many crêpes!

A Reading with Visiting Writer Hanif Abdurraqib!

In case you don’t know, Hanif Abdurraqib was one of the most talked about writers of 2018. He also happens to be taking 2019 by storm. Last week, Wash U hosted him at the Visiting Writers Series!

Midnight, Memories, and John’s Donuts

Every school has its iconic spot, that undeniably endearing hole in the wall of which every student has some story to tell. Wash U’s John’s Donuts. It’s not much for grandeur, but it has nevertheless embedded itself in the campus culture in a fascinating way!

Spotlight on the Loop: Subterranean Books

Today’s spotlight is one of my favorite places in St. Louis, a cozy corner of the Delmar Loop, a delightful haven of warmth and joy, Subterranean Books!

WILD: Music and Memories at the End of the Year

In the years Wash. U. is not hosting a presidential debate, WILD is the most talked about event on campus. If you ask me, WILD is even more than the mini-music fest we make it out to be!

The sun is shining, a breeze is blowing, and campus is alive! Spring at Wash U brings its own brand of excitement. It looks something like this…

Got Opinions?

It’s a crazy world out there, and if you’re interested in coming to Wash U, you’ve probably got a lot to say about it. There are a ton of outlets for student voices on campus! Radio shows! Podcasts! Blogs! You name it.

Yet, the outlet closest to my heart is ISSUES Magazine.

Spotlight on the Loop: Tivoli Theatre

The Tivoli Theatre is a St. Louis landmark, a diamond on the famous Delmar Loop. It has been a home to entertainment for the St. Louis public since 1924. Just a short walk from campus, the historic theatre is one of my absolute favorite places in St. Louis!

New Year, New Classes!

Winter break is officially over, and the new semester is in full swing!

Lights, Lanterns, and Laughter

Eureka! Missouri, that is.

That is the name of the town I found myself in last Saturday night. Huddled around a fire, s’more in hand, I was looking to the sky.

Founders Day Festivities with Anderson Cooper!

Each year, the Wash U Alumni Association commemorates the university’s founding in 1853 by inviting a keynote speaker to give a brief speech and answer student questions. From Colin Powell to Margaret Thatcher, the speakers are always extremely interesting, engaging, and impressive.

Getting through midterm season is an art. While I haven’t perfected it quite yet, here are a few things I’ve learned along the way.

Loufest Spotlight: For the Love of Music

Last weekend, I finally attended one of St. Louis’ most exciting, anticipated events of the year: Loufest. Basically, every year, Loufest brings about forty musical acts to Forest Park for a weekend of good vibes and great music. This year, the headliners were Snoop Dogg, Weezer, and Cage the Elephant. In past years, acts like LCD Soundsystem, Hozier, Arctic Monkeys, and Outkast graced the greenway of the best city park in the United States.
