Inspire Yourself!

Hi guys! Two weekends ago, I took my LSAT.  By the way, I think I did pretty well on it.  Anyways, after my exam was done, I went out with my senior friends to the city to "hangout."  It was a much needed day out to let out all my LSAT stress.  I didn't get back to my room until 3am in the morning.  I got back to my dorm only to shower and get ready again to head back into the city with my team to volunteer.  Throughout the season, my...

How Ugo Gets Through A Day

Hi guys! I'm not really a people person.  Well, I am, but people annoy me really easily.  I know I'm not the only one who feels this way.  I'm quiet and I'm shy.  However, once you get to know me and I get to know you, we're cool.  There are some people I don't bother talking to because I just don't think it's necessary.  It's kind of a bad quality trait.  My mom hates it!  Every family party we go to, there's everyone else and then...

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...

The First Week In Guatemala

The first few days of being back home proved to be very packed and entertaining. I thought that I would not be going out too much, or that there would not be too many fun events in the first few days, but I was wrong. The first event of the summer was the Academic Award Ceremony of my old high school. My younger sister received a Drama Award for her outstanding performances in that class, so my parents and I went to see her. I was so...

The Final Days in NY

Before going back to Guatemala and officially starting my summer break, I decided to stay for a few more days after graduation in New York. At first I thought that I would not have anything to do, but then I remembered that it is New York City — there are plenty of things to do. My adventures began right after graduation when I was invited to the house of one of my brothers to celebrate his graduation. We were greeted warmly by his...

What Happens In Orlando… Goes On HawkTalk Pt.1

This week was Spring Break for Wagner College, and two of my friends and I came to Orlando... by bus. Our trip did not begin with the right foot at all. The moment we saw the bus station we knew it would not be a great ride. The station was located in a very sketchy area of Canal Street and the people who were going on the ride with us were not exactly very appealing people. The bus ride was 19 hours long, or so we thought. According...
