Inspiring opportunities

While attending graduate school in the fall is my top priority, it does not hurt to plan accordingly just in case this does not work out. I considered all my potential options and decided to apply to Teach For America. This is an amazing program that places corps members in schools located in low-income communities….

Making the Cut

As a junior it is terrifying to think that soon I will be expected to graduate and move on to the next stage of my life. Fortunately, my next step is more schooling so I do not have to panic just yet about entering the job world. But I still have to think of my…

It’s a Jungle Out There

Or rather, in here. The most recent Omnibus trip took me on an adventure unlike any I have ever been on before. As a self proclaimed “foodie” I jumped at the chance to visit Jungle Jim’s, a huge international market in Cincinnati. Its website labels it a foodie’s market and that is not an exaggeration….

Story Time with Garrison Keillor

Tuesday evening was a very special night at Hanover College. Garrison Keillor found himself on campus for a wonderful evening of storytelling. As a capstone speaker, and a very highly regarded one at that, Keillor packed the Horner Center. He spent the evening telling hilarious tales of Lake Wobegon to a sold out crowd. Students…

Jet Setting

Well, since this is my first blog after a lot of traveling over fall break, nothing is better than a blog full of photos! As a picture is worth a thousand words, several pictures should be above and beyond! Over break I journeyed not only to Philadelphia, but also to Washington, D.C. where I got…

Life After Break

After taking a break from campus and blogging, I am back (and hopefully better than ever). I had a lot of things happening all at once during the last few weeks of Winter Term and none of them were happy, cheerful or blog worthy. But now that I have returned to campus, everything is alive…

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…
