New experiences: meeting John Dean and Laci Green

As a junior, I think that it’s pretty easy to say that sometimes your schedule is not exactly ideal. Different things come up and your normal week quickly becomes a hectic week. Well, this week was definitely one of those weeks. Sleep deprivation was at an all time high with midterms approaching, and procrastination was…

How Hanover changed me

My time at Hanover College has provided many great experiences. Some have been good, and some not; but overall, they made me grow as a person. As a high school student, I rarely stressed about my classes. Of course, there were always two or three that were not the easiest, but I did not study…

Think outside the box

For one of my Hanover College elementary education classes, I did an author study. This means I researched a children’s author, presented the information to my class, told them about the author and discussed the types of books he/she has written. For my author study, I chose Barbara Park (a.k.a. one of my all-time favorite authors). I absolutely…

Not Passing Up a Good Deal

Being a student at Hanover College has many perks, and I talk about them all the time. But it seems that in all my blogging, I have skipped right over a perk that saves my broke college self a couple dollars every now and then. Each student at Hanover gets a student ID card which acts…

Educating Educators

Tuesday evening I made my way, a little unwillingly, toward the Horner Center to attend an education presentation. I didn’t really know what to expect but I wasn’t overly enthused at the thought of giving up my precious homework time. After about two minutes in Horner 102, I regretted thinking that I didn’t want to…

Conquering D.C.

Beyond being able to experience Philadelphia, Pa., because of the great transportation system that they have, I am also able to visit other cities as well. The city’s MegaBus offers several trips to different cities on a regular basis, costing anywhere from $1 to $15. Either way, what a great deal! Over the next six…

Am I on Vacation?

Greetings from Philadelphia! Today was the day of travels, and I have finally made it safe and sound to the “big city.” So far everything has gone very smoothly and easy to navigate, but the only problem is that I don’t feel like I am at school; I feel like I am on vacation. To…
