Hi there! My name’s Zack!

I’m a rising Junior from Milwaukee, WI. I’m majoring in Philosophy-Neuroscience-Psychology (PNP, for short) and minoring in Drama. This summer I get the privilege of working as an undergraduate intern in the Admissions Office at WashU. I’m really excited to write for the WashU 360 blog and hope to share a little bit more about myself and my summer experience here!

#WashU19: The top 10 things to look forward to at WashU

There is so much to look forward to in the fall! Here’s a sneak peek at what freshmen should expect.

2015 Spring WILD

2015 Spring WILD last night was AWESOME. The performers include Mac Miller, Botneck, and Choo Jackson! Even though I am definitely not the biggest fan of rap music, I have to admit, Mac Miller is pretty talented. This spring semester, the date and time of WILD was Friday, April 24th at 5:30 p.m. 5:30 was when the opening bands performed. Mac Miller came on around 8:00 p.m. WILD was definitely a reward after a stressful last week of classes before the upcoming final exams.

Holi festival celebrations, Batman!

Celebration weekend is the best weekend!

2015 ThurtenE Carnival

Hi guys! This Friday-Sunday is the weekend of ThurtenE! So, what exactly is ThurtenE? ThurtneE Carnival is the oldest and largest student-run carnival in the nation! My favorite part about the Carnival was the children having fun. Since people from all over St. Louis attend the event, it really serves a unifying purpose by bringing together everyone with the games and activities (and food!).

The 2015 Annual Res College Olympics

The Saturday before last, the much-anticipated annual Res College Olympics (RCO) hit the ground running with a 5K around campus (pun oh-so intended). For a group who had woken up early Saturday morning to the sounds of banging pots and pans, and—at least in my case—a trumpet, we took off with a surprising amount of energy once we got the go-ahead.

2015 Chancellor’s Concert

From 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. earlier on today (Sunday, April 12th), the Washington University Symphony Orchestra and Choirs presented the annual Chancellor’s Concert. The concert was held in the E. Desmond Lee Concert Hall in the 560 Music Center. Steven Jarvi (orchestra) and Nicole Aldrich (choirs) were the conductors, and the concert featered Kate Reimann (soprano) and Keith Boyer (tenor). The program consisted of operatic favorites of Rossini, Verdi, Puccini, Strauss, and Wagner. Following the performance, there was a Friends of Music reception hosted by Chancellor Mark Wrighton.

Radiolab Comes to WashU for Celebration of Arts & Sciences
