Here is some advice I was given before coming to college, as well as when I made my way to WashU. I hope these tips can help you like they helped me.
At Wash U, there are a ton of different study abroad options should you choose to take a semester and go explore somewhere new. Because I’m doing the Brown School 3-2 program, I knew that if I wanted to go ~abroad~, I should do it as early as possible. In all honesty, I was looking […]
Online classes have naturally changed the way WashU students go about their days. Here’s a look at a day in my life during this strange semester!
Upon entering college, students are quick to learn how to utilize break times. Some students spend down time studying or time budgeting. However, others like myself take the time to breathe and recharge. My preferred form of recharge is taking naps!
My first year at WashU by no means ended the way that I thought it would. I always envisioned packing up all of my belongings from my room after finals and saying proper goodbyes to my friends before heading home. Instead, I found myself on a flight back to New York from Arizona after spring […]
One of the most interesting classes I’ve taken in my years at WashU has been a class I’m taking this semester, U.S Foreign Policy. As an International and Area Studies major, I already had an interest in foreign policy. However, the format of this class makes the topic fascinating regardless. The simulation exercises that take […]
Hey guys, I am finally done with my first semester and learned so much about life at WashU! Here’s my 5 things I learned 1st semester!
The Campus Life office offers great ways to do that through it’s Reading Week events in the Danforth University Center (DUC)! A huge fan of this programming myself, I made sure to attend every one.
Last semester, I found something I loved in the readings and lectures of my Introduction to Cultural Anthropology class. This year, I am diving deeper into Anthropology with an upper-level seminar: The Anthropology of Food.
My first year at WashU taught me so much, both academically and otherwise. Here’s some helpful tips I picked up along the way!
Over a month after finishing my first year at WashU, I still can’t believe it’s over. On one hand, it went by insanely fast. Sometimes I feel like I’m still about to go to college, rather than actually being in it. On the other hand, so much has happened since August of last year. I’ve learned so much about myself and made connections with people whom I can’t imagine not knowing. It’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that so much has changed in just a year.
One of my favorite things about WashU is that there are so many locations on campus designed to foster collaboration and interaction. No matter where I am on campus, I’m always close to a great place to sit down with a friend and chat, do homework, or share a meal. Here are some of my favorite places to hang out at WashU!
Get as much sleep as you can in high school, because going to bed before 11pm is a goal of mine in college that I have not been able to achieve even if I am physically in bed at 10:30pm
Now that I have survived my first semester of college (and with meal points to spare!), it seems like I am due for a short reflection on the academic shift from high school to college. There are numerous aspects of college that are drastically different, but I want to focus on arguably the most important part of school: the classes.
I’m Sparkle and because icebreakers are amazing I’ll share the following fun fact: I am obsessed with Nutella.
It’s always rewarding when you have a class that actually makes you excited to get out of bed in the morning. To me, as a prospective English major, writing soothes the soul. It allows me an escape. It is a tool that I often use to release my thoughts into the world, hoping that one […]
When I first arrive on campus in August of 2016, Olin Library was already undergoing construction. Although I saw the complete project sketches, I had no idea what the new spaces would be like since I wasn’t around to see the old Whispers Cafe. When I came back to campus in January of 2018, the […]
When I tell people that I’m an English and Political Science major, they mostly assume that my ultimate goal is to become a teacher. While I wouldn’t mind becoming a professor at some point, I want to be able to be in the workforce beforehand, and although I haven’t decided what exactly I want to […]
