My Final Winter Break (Journal #1)

With the end of the semester finally past us and the holidays in full swing, I’d like to take this time to congratulate my peers. Congratulations to everyone for completing yet another semester and making it to winter break. Whether you are a freshman or senior, maintaining a good academic standard in the world today is no easy feat. We have finally made it to winter break.

Finally: A Letter to Senior Year

I feel like I’m living in the future even writing this. It feels like it was yesterday that I was applying for colleges aimlessly, worried about what would become of me after high school, and unsure of what the next steps were.

Summers in University (A Reflection and Guide)

The first summer break after my first year of college was one of the most shell-shocking seasons of my academic career. Some of my classmates were already doing internships while others pursed jobs. I, on the other hand, just used my summer break as a break! Is there a correct way to spend the summers […]

Little Lessons from Undergrad, Part I

I came into my undergraduate career bright-eyed, bushy tailed, and with no idea what to expect. I was full of hope and even some expectations. Even though college isn’t wilding different than what I originally imagined, I’ve learned and experienced many new things. These new things were a mixture of good moments, bad moments, and even some that fall on neither side. In this article, I will be sharing little lessons I’ve learned over the course of my undergrad years.

All on My Own

So, you’ve made it. Congratulations! Even though there is still a good two months before the fall semester, as an incoming freshman, that first semester of your college journey is probably all you can think about right now (that’s all I did summer 2019 c:). For some, this is the first time you will be away from home for a long period of time, something that seems daunting. For others, this distance from home is something that you have been longing for. Whatever the case may be, it is important to create your own home while in college.

It’s Major Declaration Day!

Today, February 22nd, 2021, is scary, exciting, troubling, and stressful for a lot of us sophomores. Today, we officially declare our majors. And although the action is as simple as clicking a couple buttons on WebSTAC, it is a day where many of us have to sit down and think about our futures. Some people […]

A Day in My Life with Online Classes

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!

Handling Racial Injustice as a WashU Community

It’s time that we stand against racism for good, and stand for the positive change we want to see in the world today.

Reflections From My Trip to Tucson With My Global Citizenship Program Class

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 […]

Graduation in the Time of Coronavirus

Goodbyes are never easy, but they’re even trickier when you can’t say them in person.

What I’ll Miss About WashU

What better way to celebrate my last day as a Wash U student than to write about the things I’ll miss about Wash U (full disclosure: I’m writing this through tears).

Taking the Metro: Best stops for the best sights

I’ve had an amazing time traveling around the city using the Metro, which is free for WashU students. I loved getting to see the city that way! Here are some of my favorite spots in St. Louis that fall right on the Metro line.

Travel the World at WashU

Here at WashU, there are a multitude of cultural events to take part in and to see! The events range from performances at the Edison Theater, to various film festivals showcasing films from different regions of the world, to the possibility of joining over 100 diversity groups.

Exploring St. Louis: My Union Station Adventure

Having to return home for the rest of the semester, I’m thinking a lot about how much I miss St. Louis. Still, this time to reflect has made me so excited to continue to explore the city when I return to campus. One of my favorite spots that I explored this year was Union Station, which just opened recently.

From One Bear to (Hopefully) Another

Perhaps the question I hear most often—and always the one I dread answering the most—from prospective students is “Why did you choose WashU?” My apprehension has nothing to do with my inability to answer the question at all; instead, it has everything to do with my confidence in my ability to encapsulate everything that I […]

BearFIT at the Rec!

In my last post, I talked about how amazing the rec center is here at WashU. It’s so amazing that here I am, writing another post about what it has to offer! I touched a little bit on the two studios at the rec and how they are my favorite spots to go to. However, […]

Autumn Leaves Frozen in Time

It’s been long overdue, but after my heart to heart letter with Snow last school year, I have unfortunately loss the desire to build a snowman as of late. However, I figured I’d take this awkward time between winter and spring to reminisce on the passing of the Autumn Leaves. Dear Autumn Leaves, In hindsight […]

How I Fell in Love with Wash U

Hi again! I decided since I’m still new to WashU360 and there’s much you don’t know about me, it’d be helpful to share some of my story with you. As most of the audience reading this blog is incoming freshman and parents, I decided to tell you about how I discovered Wash U and why […]
