Ending on a High Note

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.

A Day In The Life

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.

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.

Prague Updates: Shout out to all students going through exams

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 […]

Typographic Woes
