How Hanover has changed me

This week marks the beginning of the last week of my undergraduate career. I took a different route and didn’t spend my last spring term on campus, but rather I moved to South Carolina and started work. Looking back at my freshman year, I really don’t think I would have ever thought that leaving Hanover…

Marriage isn’t for you

Marriage isn’t for you: Recently I came across this blog on my facebook news feed. In summary, the blog talks about how being married isn’t about you but about the person you want to marry. I enjoyed the content of the post and it really made me start to think about how this applies to…

Feels good to be back!

Everyone loves being welcomed back with tons of greetings and hugs from all your friends after break. However, this time coming back was a little different because I hadn’t seen any of my friends for longer than two days since about last May. Returning to campus and moving back into the KAT Castle (my sorority…

The happenings at Hanover

Just when you think things are going to get easier, life surprises you. This past week was an absolute whirlwind — between working on five group projects, sorority responsibilities and social obligations, I have hardly had time to breathe. So when Friday afternoon rolled around, I rejoiced because the weekend had finally arrived. Friday evening,…
