An unexpected gift

Ok, Ok, let me tell you the story about the pants in the picture. This Wednesday afternoon, I went back to my room and found this pair of jeans on my bed. Since I’ve never seen this pair of jeans before, so I just assumed they belonged to my roommate. However, when I went back to my…

Fall for Hanover

Just about a week ago, I was complaining to my friends about how it seems this fall is not as pretty as last year.

The Moon Festival

One of the hardest times for international students is the time when traditional festivals approach. That’s the time you will feel really really homesick, because when it’s not festival time, you will be distracted by your everyday, extremely busy schedule.

As a liberal arts college student, you are required to take LADR (Liberal Arts degree Requirements) courses that involve different disciplines. And…
