With college comes stress

A lot of the time when you read posts on college blogs, it kind of seems like everything is great in the lives of the students. Some talk about tests and study tips or how to manage your time, but even these talk about the good parts of college. The life of a student isn’t…

Coming back to Christmas spirit

For Thanksgiving break, almost everyone went home. Living only two hours away, I have the luxury of going home almost every break to visit with family and friends, and catch up on their lives. Unfortunately, the reality of college is that some people live a little too far away to go home for a four-day…

Unexpected winter wonderland

Somehow it surprises me every year, but the cold this year seems to have just hit a lot quicker and a lot harder than it usually does. Just last week we had highs in the sixties. That is the perfect temperature for me and it could have stayed like that for … well … the…

Forte: A Senior Thesis Production

The cornerstone of most majors is your senior thesis and theater is no different. Your senior thesis is the culmination of all the work you’ve put in the last four years.

Drama in the theater

This year has been absolutely insane for our theater department. With the loss of our beloved Parker Auditorium for performances, we weren’t entirely certain where we were going to be by the time the first production came around.

Two and a half years ago I set foot on Hanover’s campus as a student for the first time, and everyone told me it would be the best four years of my life. I couldn’t wait. I was done with high school and was leaving all that behind for something new and exciting, and I…

Costumes On and Off the Stage

October on campus is one of my favorite times of the year. The leaves are all turned, and it’s actually a bearable temperature outside. I can’t help wanting to throw on a jacket and take to the trails for a hike. Apparently, a lot of other people think it’s pretty beautiful as well since we…

A break from technology

Mid-terms have come and gone, and just like that, half the semester is over. Looking back over the last two years, I can’t help but notice a consistent trend. All of my electronics break right before Fall Break. I mean, sure everyone’s phone is going to stop working at some point, and everyone’s going to…

Year-in-review and summer plans

This year has been even more than I could ask for. The friendships I’ve gained as well as the ones that have grown, the opportunities that have opened up for me and the countless new experiences that I’ve had have been tremendous. From theater to relationships to holding a position in a Greek house, I’ve…
