Study Breaks and Bonding

We are in midterm season at Wash U. You always know when it’s that time: the weather is cooling down, people are pulling on boots, stuffing their arms in sweaters, study groups are forming, reviews are happening, textbooks and notecards are strewn across every table on campus. Students sit together encouraging each other through the […]

WILD: Walk In, Lay Down?

Yesterday was WILD, an event that happens once every semester at WashU. WILD is an acronym which stands for “walk in, lay down,” although the nature of the event does not usually call for much relaxation. (In a good way)

Photo of the Week: Welcome Fall

This week I mourn the loss of the beautiful weather of last week. St. Louis is finally accepting the fact that it’s Fall now, as it’s been gloomy and rainy all week. But that just means it’s time for flannels, sweatpants, and all things pumpkin!

A Mid-Midterm Break

How I recharged after midterms this semester …

Fall It Up

Dogs, donuts, pumpkins, pie, and polaroids. Just a few of the things that make an appearance at Fall activities on the South 40. There is always something to attend.

Right Back to Writing

While high school courses and strict paper-writing formulas resulted in my decreasing interest in writing, the flexible creative writing courses at WashU have reminded me why I used to love it so much.

Photo(s) of the Week: Inside Art Studio

Juniors and Seniors in the Communication Design program have their own desks in studio to work at during and out of class. Everyone decorates their space in unique ways, so I thought it’d be fun to do a photo series of people’s desks!

The South 40 Fitness Center

The South 40 fitness center is one of my favorite places on campus. Many people don’t find out about the 40’s very own fitness center until they have seen their friend disappearing up the stairs in Bears Den. Once they know what it is, they fall in love with this wonderful little treasure tucked above […]

WashU Musicianhood: The Beginning (a.k.a. oh, no – Auditions)

Because classical music is NOT “just for old people.”

Bear’s Den: By Food and Story

College students love food. One of the times of day they look forward to is heading to Bear’s Den or BD, the South 40’s dining hall. A wonderful place with almost any food a student could want to consume –  stir fry, burgers, veggie burgers, grain bowls, cereal, salads, grilled cheese, Kosher meals, pasta, pizza, palak […]
