Four tips when traveling to Italy

When I was selected for the Global Scholars Program here at Hanover, part of the program included a fully funded spring term trip abroad. Hanover offers myriad off-campus classes for spring term, and I chose “Early Christianity in Italy.” It happened to be the last theology class I needed to finish my theology minor, and I…

State debate

If you read my blog frequently, or even once before this, you’ve probably heard me talk about a few things like a broken record. One of them is Sigma Chi, my fraternity at Hanover. The other is my experience on the speech and debate team in high school. I like to think that when I…

A Week Away

I was initially worried that I would be stuck here at Hanover for the 4th of July, because everyone else living at Young House was leaving for the week. The 6th of July was my birthday, and I figured I’d end up alone for that, too. This is what happens when you don’t currently have…

Several of the more popular restaurants decided to prepare an authentic Irish dish, and by buying a ticket earlier in the week, I was able to sample each of the dishes.

Everyday Life

As I took a personal day Saturday to celebrate my birthday, Sunday I definitely felt the pressure to get cracking on all the work that needed to be done by Monday and Tuesday. In addition to everyday reading (there is a TON of reading in college) I seemed to have agreed to lead a discussion…

International Festival & MLK Dedication

I always feel like the speed of my blog posts can never keep up with what is going on with me in D.C. Oh well, there are just so many things to explore here. I haven’t really mentioned my work for a while, but that’s not because I haven’t been working hard. These days, I…

So many things to catch up on because so many things happened during the past couple of weeks! I guess I will just post some pictures about my adventures here then. I went to the National Zoo with some of the friends that I made here in Washington, D.C. And the most exciting thing here…
