Aca-awesome: An introduction to collegiate a cappella

Brought to light by the movie Pitch Perfect, a cappella is becoming increasingly popular on college campuses. Wagner is no exception! We currently have three a cappella groups on campus: Testostertones (all male), Fermata Nowhere (co-ed), and Vocal Synergy (all female and the group I'm in!). For those of you who have absolutely no idea what I am talking about, I'm gonna break it down for you. A cappella music is music sung without any...

SEN10RS to SEN14RS

Recently I've been feeling a lot of emotions about being a senior and how far I've come, so I decided to get my fellow seniors' input on this week's post idea. I asked my peers, "If you could speak to yourself as a high school senior, what would you say?" Here are some of the responses.  "Don't worry, you change majors." "If I could go back and tell myself something, I would tell myself not to regret anything and just live life the...

The thing about home…

During college, home can become a tricky word. You leave what has always been your home to go to a new place that you will reside in nearly every second of the semester. Just because you live somewhere 24/7, does that make it home? Most would say, "absolutely not." So what is it about home? It's obviously more than just where you live. How do most college students end up finding home here? What makes home, home? In case you can't tell...

Dorm Decorating 101

I would never call myself an expert on decor or interior design, but currently being a fourth year residential student and second year RA, I think it is safe to say that I have seen a lot of dorm rooms in my day. I've learned a thing or two about creative ideas that make your room look more awesome than white walls and a bed. There are plenty more sweet ideas (just check out pinterest), but I am going to list some common decor I see...

Getting to know Mark Beyer

How many times do we get to sit down with a stranger just to get to know them? In NYC, more than you think. I recently had the pleasure of interviewing fellow HawkTalk blogger, Mark Beyer. Even though this will be our third year on the same campus, our paths never crossed until now and I am happy they did. I’m excited to tell you all about this guy. Mark hails from the always sunny San Diego, CA. When I asked Mark what he does, he...

My International Experience in our Nation’s Capital

In case you haven't noticed from the other HawkTalk bloggers, one of the awesome things about Wagner is how many opportunities they create for students to go abroad. Students can study abroad or go on EYH trips. My friends have been all around the world from Costa Rica, Australia, Spain, Kenya, Haiti, London, Rome, Ecuador, Peru and more! Last semester I left the country for the first time to go to Germany and Austria with the Wagner...

Goddard’s Testing Facilities: where we build satellites then try to break them

On a clear night with limited light pollution (which rarely happens in New York), you might look up into the night sky and see space.  You might see a shooting star or check out the full moon. What you probably don't see (or realize you are seeing) are the 8,000 satellites currently in orbit around the Earth. However, not all of these are currently operational. In case you don't know, people use satellites to look into both deep space...
