A Day in My Life with Online Classes

Online classes have naturally changed the way WashU students go about their days. Here’s a look at a day in my life during this strange semester!

Taking the Metro: Best stops for the best sights

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.

Exploring St. Louis: My Union Station Adventure

Having to return home for the rest of the semester, I’m thinking a lot about how much I miss St. Louis. Still, this time to reflect has made me so excited to continue to explore the city when I return to campus. One of my favorite spots that I explored this year was Union Station, which just opened recently.

Fun during Finals! Reading Week Events

The Campus Life office offers great ways to do that through it’s Reading Week events in the Danforth University Center (DUC)! A huge fan of this programming myself, I made sure to attend every one. 

First snow of the season at WashU!

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.

Korean-Mexican Fusion? Surprisingly Good!

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.

Friends, food, and fun: Memories from my first year

Over a month after finishing my first year at WashU, I still can’t believe it’s over. On one hand, it went by insanely fast. Sometimes I feel like I’m still about to go to college, rather than actually being in it. On the other hand, so much has happened since August of last year. I’ve learned so much about myself and made connections with people whom I can’t imagine not knowing. It’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that so much has changed in just a year.

Free Food at WashU!

There is nothing WashU students love more than free stuff. Here’s a list of some of my favorite free food opportunities on campus!

Always make time for bananas

Hi everyone! If I had to describe myself as a foodie in two words, I would pick colorful and bananas. I am still trying to figure out which one describes me better. Is “colorfulananas” a word? 😛

I Can’t Bey-Lieve It

Every once and a while, I’m reminded why I love living in St. Louis.

Food, food, and more food!

Hey everyone! If I was stuck on a deserted island and had to take something with me, I would definitely pick Wash U’s food as one of them. Being back at school for the past two weeks has truly reminded me of how much I miss stuffing my stomach with deliciously (and mostly healthy) food throughout the day.

Thanksgiving on campus!

As I watched my friends leave campus in droves for the Thanksgiving holiday, I began to feel a little homesick. I unfortunately wasn’t able to return home to California for Thanksgiving. Luckily, I participate in Home Plate, a program created by Chancellor Wrighton’s wife that aims to “provide a little taste of home” for WashU students. […]

This is Ibby’s. Ibby’s is a heavenly sit-down restaurant in the DUC (Danforth University Center) that accepts meal-points!
