Food is More Intimate Than We Think

Taking the time to explore St. Louis’ culture could mean a multitude of things for college students. For instance, food is an important aspect of a city as it provides a tasteful tour of the region.

5 Things I Learned 1st Semester| WashU 360

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!

Dual-Degree Engineering Students Can Have Fun Too!

Some would say one of the worst times during college is the week of final exams. I would be the one to say it is actually THE worst time during the semester. The whole idea behind cramming a semester’s worth of material for 5 different classes in one week, all to pass an exam that’s […]

A Definitive Ranking of St Louis Pizza Places by Someone Who is Kind of From St Louis

As a budding social worker on an accelerated graduation track, I take all opportunities I can to delve into conflicts throughout my community.

Fun during Finals! Reading Week Events

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.

Korean-Mexican Fusion? Surprisingly Good!

A few weekends ago, my friends and I decided to get dinner at Seoul Taco on the Delmar Loop. We had heard many people rave about it, so we thought we’d go and see if it lived up to its reputation.

Friends, food, and fun: Memories from my first year

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.

Fun Dorm Activities: Baking!

When I first visited WashU, my favorite thing about the 40 was, and continues to be, the community I’ve found there. There’s so much to do, whether it’s running to Bear’s Den to grab a meal and staying for hours talking with friends, buying candy at the student owned and run Bear-y Sweet Shop, or having a karaoke night with my floormates in the common room. This semester, one of my favorite features of residential life has been the kitchens in my dorm building.

My Favorite Places to Hang Out on Campus!

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!

Free Food at WashU!
