You know what they say about Junior year. Third time’s the charm.
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.
Hi everyone! It is almost the time for school to begin. After spending hours unpacking (since I just got back from China), I now have to spend even more hours *packing* for Wash U. To help make packing easier for everyone, I have a couple pieces of advice on what NOT to pack. I’m sure you all know the “must-bring” items, like school supplies and a pillow. Well…the thing is, some of the “must-bring” items are not entirely necessary! I learned this the hard way last year as a first-year student, and now I’ll share some useful tips with you.
