Unsure about your major? Talk it out.

Unsure about your major? Talk it out.

February 5th, 2016

Freshman year can be full of fun and laughter but it’s also composed of a new realm in academics. You are now entering a place that is no longer preparing you for college but is preparing you for life. It may seem scary but it becomes less frightening if you discuss your concerns with other people. […]


Chase Your Dream- Make it a Reality

Chase Your Dream- Make it a Reality

February 1st, 2016

Everyone starts out with a major and/or minor in mind. They have an idea of what they want to be in the future and will try to work their way up to achieve that desired career. I have only one simple advice. Be open-minded and gain experiences. For most people, they will change their minds […]


Times of Transition

Times of Transition

January 31st, 2016

Transition: Passage from one state, stage, subject, or place to another. Throughout our lives we all undergo transitions, whether its slow like the changes of age over the years, or fast like moving from your childhood home to someplace completely new. The transition from high school to college I think falls somewhere in the middle. […]


Year in Review: 2015

Year in Review: 2015

January 21st, 2016

Another year has started and the “new year, new me” comments have come in once again. No doubt people will attempt to be a more updated version of themselves- even I. The entire year of 2015 was a life-changing year- for good and bad (but let’s focus on the ‘good’ portion!). 1) I play the […]


That’s a Wrap: Semester #5

That’s a Wrap: Semester #5

December 11th, 2015

Then, all of the sudden I was half way done with my junior year. Huh. I think every semester of college has gone by faster than the last and before I know it I’ll be graduating. But let’s not jump that far ahead. Academically, this has been one of my easier semesters. Because I only […]


Find Your Identity

Find Your Identity

November 16th, 2015

College is the best place to find out who you are. Somehow in your 4 years in college, you will find out where you fit in the realm of society, you will understand yourself better, and you will be more confident about yourself. Maturity will kick in sooner or later as you become more independent […]


Being a First Generation Student

Being a First Generation Student

November 9th, 2015

Without a doubt, being a first generation student can be challenging, scary, and intimidating. For me, my family was not able to help me much in terms of college advice, connections, and understanding the concept of “college life.”  I had to be independent. I had to figure things out for myself. I had to learn […]


Sophomore Goals

Sophomore Goals

October 27th, 2015

I have learned many things from Freshman year – the do’s and the do not’s. This year, I hope to improve academically and learn more about who I am as an individual. 1. Make Connections. I am at the point where connections (to medical school, hospitals, and clinics) are essential to have. I am halfway […]


What Does “Commuting” Actually Mean?

What Does “Commuting” Actually Mean?

October 22nd, 2015

The first words that pop in my mind when hearing the word “commuting” are: independence, public, tiring, and home sweet home. For the commuting students, things can get a little more exhausting compared to the life of a student who dorms. Distance: Depending on where you live, you may have get up early and organize […]


You Don’t Need to Have it All Figured Out

October 17th, 2015

For every phase of life there seems to be a list of questions people love to ask you. Senior year you mastered the, “Will you graduate in the top of your class?”, “What are your plans for next year?”, “What university will it be?” and so on. Now, you’ve made it to your freshman year […]
