Thanksgiving with the Family

Thanksgiving with the Family

November 27th, 2012

Thanksgiving.  During the year, probably the holiday I look forward to most.  This year, it had special meaning for me.  Of course, I had a chance to go home, but it was the first time I was able to be home with my two younger sisters since we all left for college.  In fact, it […]

Seasonal Appreciation

November 7th, 2012

As fall rolls around here in Chicago, I am fortunate enough to be able to experience the changing season.  For years now, fall has been my favorite season, and for good reason.  For me, fall represents family time, foliage, and of course, delicious food.  It is in the spirit of fall that I have created this list of […]

Taste of Chicago

July 18th, 2012

Having been in Chicago for more than a month now, I can really begin to understand what everyone means when they say: “You must live in Chicago during the summer.”  I thought my home town of St. Louis was an interesting place to spend my summer breaks; however it pales in comparison to its big […]

Welcome Week Activites

July 12th, 2012

The first few my internship has provided me with ample opportunity for learning and appreciating.  Tasked with working in with Water Tower Campus Life, I have a great opportunity to learn about all of the perks to living at the Water Tower Campus.  In an effort to bring to light all of the great opportunities the […]
