Keeping healthy in college

I’m sure you have heard of the “Freshman 15.” It is very common to gain weight when you first go to college because you are off on your own, you get overwhelmed with school work, and your mom and dad are not cooking for you anymore. It is just so easy when you are studying…

Accursed snow

Hey. I’m a little bitter right now everyone. Today was supposed to be the day. The day of my comprehensive exam and the day I would essentially be done with college. All I had to do was take an oral exam. One last exam and all my hard work would be shown and accounted for….

Exhausting week ends with authority

This last week was my fraternity’s initiation week, or I-Week as it is called here. As an active brother, I have learned the amount of work that goes into this week, which resulted in a missed class and little to no sleep. It was all worth it on Saturday, though, when we were able to welcome 12…
