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 […]
9 pm: I finish my shift at the Bear-y Sweet Shoppe and close up shop. My friends and I walk around the corner to Ursa’s Nite Life, the alternative night life programming space on campus. A curtain of metallic streamers hangs in the doorway and my glasses fog up immediately upon entering. Green, blue, and […]
It has officially been a week into my second semester of college. Over winter break, I had some time to reflect on my first semester at WashU, so here are three things I learned during my first semester of college! Time management is key to getting things done. I know it’s been said by everyone […]
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 […]
As a budding social worker on an accelerated graduation track, I take all opportunities I can to delve into conflicts throughout my community. St Louisans are nothing if not extremely opinionated and as someone who lived here for almost four full summers while she was attending boarding school on the East Coast, I consider myself […]
My favorite time of the year most definitely has to be in between Thanksgiving and New years. This may be a common thing a lot of people say, however I don’t mind agreeing! I love this time of the year so much because of all the joy and happiness that is spread from one another. […]
I am constantly reminded of how beautiful this campus is, and never is it more picturesque than after that first snowfall, when the old buildings stand atop a glistening white carpet.
Growing up in the metropolis that is New York City, I rarely encountered anything other than towering skyscrapers and rattling subways. The largest places of nature were Central Park in the middle of Manhattan and the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx. As such, I’d never experienced quintessential fall activities such as apple picking, […]
Recently, I had the opportunity to listen to Wash U alumnus Pushkar Sharma speak about his job at the UN and his career path from Wash U to the UN. This event was part of a series of events at the Gephardt Institute Office, an office at Wash U that helps students get involved in civic life in St. Louis.
This past spring, I studied abroad in Argentina through SIT’s Argentina: Social Movements and Human Rights Programs. It’s difficult to condense an entire semester into a few paragraphs, but I’ll try. To begin with, I was so nervous before I left. I dreaded getting on the plane because I was unsure of my Spanish skills […]
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.
It’s nice to meet you! My name is Allana Thompson. I am a current sophomore at Wash U pursuing Animation through a Studio Art/Communication Design major and a minor in Korean Language and Culture!
Hi, I’m A’Daja, English major, and you’re reading WashU 360 blogs! [attempts to draw the bear logo in mid-air…fails miserably]
On a clear, crisp October afternoon, Wash U officially welcomed Andrew Martin as its 15th chancellor.
Welcome to St. Louis Saturdays! This is going to be a series on my page detailing my experiences at different events and places (restaurants, landmarks, etc.) around St. Louis. To be clear, there will be posts about events on other days, but because I love alliteration, I chose ‘Saturday’ for the name.
