Ever wonder what a day in the life of a Wash U student might be? This is what an average Friday for me might look like, including classes, office hours, the French table, and just chilling.
Last year, my class went to Japan over Spring Break as part of my freshman FOCUS program, the Global Citizenship Program. Come along as I look back on the experience!
How I thought that I’d never take a science or math course in my life again after high school … and how college has proven me wrong once more.
I’m not majoring in what I thought I was going to freshman year and declarations are due in February, but I’ve got a plan.
Winter break is officially over, and the new semester is in full swing!
Asking for help in college is more productive and accepted than you might think! Trust me.
Branch out a little bit and I promise studying can be its own kind of adventure!
A look at a sophomore student’s 9 to 5…more or less!
Hey everyone! I can’t believe I’m done with junior year and technically a senior now. I’ve been super busy this past week packing and flying back home, but I thought I’d squeeze out one last post about what I’ve learned this year.
One of the coolest things about classes in the Olin Business School is that there will typically be a few guest lecturers throughout the semester. Here’s a sampling of guests who visited my Retail Management class!
I’ve been looking forward to writing this post for a while now. My days at WashU are always jam-packed with activities, but it rarely feels too overwhelming. Instead, my full schedule keeps me moving, and allows me to feel continuously productive. Each day is unique, as my class schedule differs. This past Monday was particularly eventful though, so I’d like to take you through it.
When I was abroad, I never expected to find spiritual and calming places. At first, I had trouble differentiating between the plethora of churches in Italy. All of the frescoes started to look the same. I became frustrated. As architecture major, I should have been able to tell and appreciate the difference.
In just a few weeks, the inevitable is coming: finals. And if there’s one thing everyone associates with finals, it’s stress.
“Oh, cool!” is what most other students say when I tell them I’m an art student.
Hey! I’m Elliott Crosland, a Junior from Charleston South Carolina, studying Psychology and English. That’s who I am, you can take the blue pill and the story ends. This is all you know about me and we go on with our lives, or you can take the red pill, you stay on the blog, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.
This past weekend, I attended an art licensing and textile design show called SURTEX in New York City. It so happens that my illustration professor, Linda Solovic, had some of her work exhibited alongside the other artists. As I walked the massive floor at the Javitz Center, I immediately recognized Linda’s designs with their playful and animated style. It was exciting to see her projects in a professional setting outside of the classroom.
So the final days of the program have finally come. The final project is in the last stretch and right now I’m just whiling away the days trying to find suitable pass times for myself. I’m sure it’s different back at WashU. This is about the time when things really start to crack down and […]
Hey guys! Even though I’m an art student, I realize that I’ve talked about many things except my art classes! So I thought I’d spent this post describing one of my classes in particular: typography.
