Spring Break Across the Pond

It's that time of the year to escape to tropical, relaxing, destinations across the world. From Mexico to the Bahamas, thousands of college students are binge drinking their way to happiness and counting down the last half of the school year. Lucky for me, I was able to spend my Spring Break in England. Why was I in England? I knew you would ask — let's call it a business vacation. I worked in a psychiatry ward and was able to tour...

Why you should travel Internationally

Before I begin, here's the results of the "What do you like most about Winter" poll: Snuggling Up: 33% I like nothing about Winter: 33% Snow Days: 33% 1 person likes studying for their MCAT and no one likes Snow ball fights or making snowmen/snow angels. 72% of college students go to college in the state they live, 16% go to college that's neither in their home state or a bordering state. That's eye opening to me as I look at early...

The 2014 Social Media Awards

Now that I'm starting the fourth week of the spring semester and my third winter at Wagner, I can officially say I’ve been a part of my first real winter, EVER. Not a big fan of this season — but hey, you have to experience something once before you can say whether you like it or not. (All others who don’t like winter, feel free to come to Southern California with me after graduation.) So, after having nearly a month to ponder life,...
