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.
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.
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!
Although the South 40 is fantastic, WashU Residential Life features even more options for housing. Introducing…the Village!
I came for the kendo, and stayed for the people.
Featuring a swordsmanship sport, the tea ceremony, Japanese culture, and community.
Walking onto the field for the first practice as a sophomore felt drastically different than it had one year earlier as a freshman, and I’m so glad I stuck with it.
It’s the second week of school, you have barley dipped your toe in the water and the options are already a mile wide and two miles deep, but the fun doesn’t stop there!
This past semester, I enrolled in a class called “Design for Social Innovation.” Taught through The Sam Fox School of Art & Design, the course culminates in a month-long, open-ended project of the student’s choice. After learning about the connection between design and social change during the first half of the semester, I began brainstorming for my project.
Hi everyone! While most students probably spent Thanksgiving Break with their families, I spent mine here at Washington University. Now this probably sounds a bit shocking considering how much I love food, but I do have my reasons.
One of the most stressful periods at Wash U is the month of midterms. When I say month, I mean it—classes usually have midterm exams between the first and last week of October. I am proud to be announce that I am *officially* done with my midterm exams. Although exams are pretty annoying to study for, there are always other methods to cope with the stress. I tend to rely on the company of my friends in the midst of this period of nonstop cramming/studying.
One of the things I enjoy the most about my dorm this year is that it is in the Village House. The Village House provides housing for sophomores, juniors, and seniors. In the building, there are three eating areas: the Village Café, the Millbrook Market, and the Village Coffee Connection. On the main floor, there is a post office, game room, ATM, lobby, etc. Downstairs, there is a computer lab, laundry room, music practice rooms, and other fun rooms to hangout!
Hi guys! So after stumbling through the first Monday and Tuesday of my sophomore year, I’ve noticed quite a few similarities between this school year and last year. Even though now I get to label myself as a “sophomore,” I still feel like I am pretty new to the Wash U campus. Being a freshman last year was easy because I had an excuse to be confused and lost. I remember walking around with a map and trying to find Cupples I and Cupples II (hint: Cupples II is CLOSER to Olin Library than Cupples I, which took me quite a while to remember). Now that I am a sophomore, I can no longer walk up to a random stranger and ask where a building is located without feeling embarrassed. And trust me, I had to embarrassingly ask a few friends (mostly student tour guides) for help.
Celebration weekend is the best weekend!
