Study abroad in Ecuador

I just finished the scheduling process to travel to Ecuador for my class in May! I’ve been dreaming about this trip since the fall of my freshmen year when my Spanish professor told our class that he taught one of the much talked about May Term study abroad classes. In high school, I had done…

I’ve mentioned that I haven’t been home since Christmas, yeah? That dish comes with a nice side of barely leaving the campus. Sure, I leave when we travel for the theater, but that’s usually a get in, get done and get gone kind of deal. I needed a break from campus, so that’s what I…

Taking a time out

This past weekend, plus Monday and Tuesday, served as a much needed break for us Hanoverians. It gave us time to rest, recharge and head home to take care of business. Being away from home is tough — I mean I need a haircut as much as the next girl but my hairdresser lives in Illinois,…
