How to Select the Right University for You?

If you’ve just been accepted to Washington University…Congratulations!

Finding my Passion

I found my passion here at WashU, hopefully, you can as well!

Into the Grid: Florence Edition

In Firenze, anyone interested in the Renaissance gets to stand and study for short periods in churches, chapels, and buildings designed by many famous renaissance artists, but only the lucky few study for long periods, eat lunch, paint, design, play with the resident cat, for an entire semester in a palace remodeled by Raphael. Italy […]

Revisiting the Renaissance

It’s junior year. I stand at the entrance gazing up at poster of the David by Donatello hanging off the side of the building. The Bargello museum, Firenze. Flashback to freshman year. Looking up at an image of the same David, massive, about this size in William Wallace’s Introduction to Western Art being projected onto […]

A Day in the Life

Thank you to all that attended our first #WashU Wednesday Webinar about student life! Our panel of students answered questions about everything under the sun from athletics and housing, to St. Louis and “Why WashU?” If you missed it—you can view it here.

I Am A STAR(S) and You Might Be, Too!

If you receive this letter, consider yourself invited to one of the most amazing student engagement programs at Washington University. As a Deneb, I have nothing but high respect for the Deneb Stars Program and its commitment to my overall success as a student at WashU.

Into the Woods: Skating in Forest Park

Running in forest park is a classic diversion for WashU students. The trails vary in sights and lengths. A short run can make an easy workout break from studying or Netflix binge. Running from the AC to Art Hill and back makes for a run that is short and steep. Or, my preference, a run […]

Into the Woods: Lions and Tigers and Bears!

A storm has just passed whether it was a busy week of activities, exams, or a literal weather event. It’s now a sunny day, a snowy night, or course work is a bit less wild. Whatever combination of events it might be, I am seeking to clear my head and get back to home base. […]

Coffee Break

It’s Tuesday afternoon in February, we’ve been in art class for an hour and a half doing critique of a project. Its a standard packing design project, with an historical twist. What would the  packaging design be for a family owned business during the Renaissance. Everyone is enthusiastic about the critique and opportunity to bring […]

My Scholarship Programs at WashU!

When I traveled to campus this time last year for Scholars Weekend, I thought that the merit scholarships I would be interviewed for were monetary awards and nothing else. However, as the weekend went by, I quickly realized that the program would be so much more than that. With Scholars Weekend fast approaching, here’s a look into my experience with my scholarships for those who might be about to arrive on campus as scholarship finalists!

WashU chooses U

When I thought about college, I thought my next four years would take place in Manhattan. I was excited to walk into a cafe and watch the lives of strangers take place in front of me, excited to be Carrie Bradshaw or Serena van der Woodsen, to be part of something that was so much […]

A 5 Foot Scorpion Invades Campus

You read that correctly! There is a five foot scorpion on campus. Well…I am building one.                  .  Our first assignment in 3D Studio is that of constructing a variety of insects using mere cardboard. In my opinion, many of these insects are prehistoric or native to certain […]

WashU Musicianhood: Chamber Masterclass

In which I partake in my first masterclass at college.

Spirit of Korea 2019: Auditions (Pt. 1)

In which we come full circle, and I learn a little more about myself.

Into the Woods: Sledding in Forest Park

Forest Park is a wonderland of different activities for students to engage with for all seasons, yet above all my favorite is winter in forest park. When it begins to snow, as students we bundle as we did when we were young: with hats and gloves, scarves and puffy jackets. We enter the snowy world […]

Into the Grid

When the dawn of finals season rises upon the campus, students remark they are going “off the grid”. At Sam Fox, by contrast,we go “into the grid.” Enter the top floor of Steinberg and you will find the junior and senior communication designers. Each student at a desk that includes a large workspace, a rolling […]

Save the Animals, Eat at the Global Station

The vegetarian lifestyle can be extremely difficult while in college. Here are some of the best vegetarian spots on campus!

A Reading with Visiting Writer Hanif Abdurraqib!

In case you don’t know, Hanif Abdurraqib was one of the most talked about writers of 2018. He also happens to be taking 2019 by storm. Last week, Wash U hosted him at the Visiting Writers Series!
