With college comes stress

A lot of the time when you read posts on college blogs, it kind of seems like everything is great in the lives of the students. Some talk about tests and study tips or how to manage your time, but even these talk about the good parts of college. The life of a student isn’t…

Greek Life

At the beginning a new semester, most students are trying to get a handle on their new professors, classes and in my case, keeping procrastination under control. But, during these first two weeks, there has also been something else on just about everyone’s mind. Greek life. The first week back on campus had affiliated women…

Sigma Chi won’t let tradition die

Tradition is a tricky topic when it comes to college life. Some traditions are worth keeping and add to the culture at the school. Other traditions can be worth dropping — especially if they’re detrimental in some way. Specifically, I’m talking about run night serenades. Run night, if you don’t know, happens every year. It is…

My first theater show

College is full of firsts; sometimes they happen when you’re a wee little freshman, and sometimes they happen when you’re kicking off your last year at college. I was always interested in theater and acting, but never found the motivation to put myself out there and audition for much of anything during the past seven…

Senior year at Hanover

Here we go, last first blog of the year for me. It’s a strange feeling, knowing that nine months from now (approximately one human pregnancy, for those of us who prefer to think in awkward metaphors and comparisons) I’ll walk across the stage at The Point for my graduation. Each year here has changed me…

Year-in-review and summer plans

This year has been even more than I could ask for. The friendships I’ve gained as well as the ones that have grown, the opportunities that have opened up for me and the countless new experiences that I’ve had have been tremendous. From theater to relationships to holding a position in a Greek house, I’ve…
