Eat Your Heart Out

I believe that there is no better way to explore a city than by taking advantage of the food offered there. New York City has more food options than anywhere else. You can literally taste cuisines from all over the world in just a few blocks. There are even innovative fusions and new foods to try (burgushi... yup). I know what you might be thinking... but I am a poor college student. How can I be a foodie? I'M GOING TO TELL YOU. Here...

Wait… that’s a class?!

One of my favorite things to do when speaking to my friends from other schools is brag about my slightly obscure but really awesome classes, especially the titles. If this seems strange to you, you obviously haven't yet taken advantage of the wide array of classes offered at Wagner. To start out, when you first arrive at Wagner you are placed in a First-Year Learning Community, which consists of two courses plus a reflecting class...

Being a senior, I've seen all of the sleeping habits that can occur with a college student. Even still, I haven't been able to master the healthiest sleeping schedule for my collegiate lifestyle. I'd like to present the several...

Get With the Program!

A great thing about attending a small college, especially Wagner, is that it is really easy to put on your own event or program. Some of you might be thinking, "Why would I want to do that?" SO MANY REASONS. Have you ever wanted to raise money or awareness for an organization or cause that you feel super strong about? Have you ever wanted to host a concert or have your favorite speaker come to campus? Seriously, if you want to have a...

not another test…

Many people will express that during their college experience they learned a lot about themselves. This is from a number of experiences you will only have in college. These experiences can be good or bad. But eventually you realize that learning about yourself is always good, right? I'm still figuring it out, so I'm hoping that's a good thing. My personal favorite way to learn about myself and others is through personality tests. I...

ASTROPHYSICS: or Carrie geeking out about outer space

If you know anything about me, you know that I have a completely normal, not weird or nerdy at all, obsession with outer space. I can prove that this is completely normal because if you knew what I know, you would also think it's awesome (or you need to reevaluate your definition of awesome). Here are just a few reasons why astrophysics is the bomb.   Black Holes This happens to be one of my favorite topics in astrophysics and...
