Fall Break

Even though our Fall Break was only two days it was very enjoyable. Many students started Fall Break early by missing their classes Thursday and Friday. Being the good student that I am, I stayed until I was done with class on Friday. Only having two days of Fall Break leaves you with two options;…

Nostalgia and anniversaries

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…

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.

One more day … please?

I have a proposition. Because mid-semester is such a busy time in the life of a Hanover College student, I suggest that Fall Break be extended by one day. I believe that an extra 24 hours of rest and rehabilitation would be very beneficial to all students, especially this one. Here’s what I’ve been up…

Fall break’s shades

As I’ve already told you, coming to the US brought a lot of new experiences to my life. You may not believe me, but even fall break is new to me. Fall break doesn’t exist in the planet where I come from. In the Italian alien world, the scholastic year is a marathon. School starts…

Everyone needs a break

This will be my first post not written from my dorm room. I’m at home right now, comfy and feeling, well, at home. I never once imagined I would miss my bed so much. I remember back to the summer and my thoughts of all the freedom I would have, and that I’d only come…
