Trick or Treat!

Halloween isn't just for kids. I think it's the perfect holiday for college students, because it's usually right after midterms when we need a study break. I didn't want to invest in a costume that I'm never going to wear again, so I decided to get a kigurumi.  A kigurumi is a Japanese term for[…]

Who Am I?

Hello, hello. My name is Deb Youn. I was named after Deborah, the headstrong Prophetess who ruled Israel for 40 years. She is known for her fiery, bee-like spirit. That's what Deborah means in Hebrew: "Bee." I've always been like a bee myself. I spent most of my childhood chasing squirrels with my water gun[…]

Fall Break in the Big Apple!

   I've made it a tradition to go to New York City every fall break, especially since a lot of my upperclassman friends graduated and went to the city to work. It was particularly exciting this year since it was Columbus Day weekend and there were many celebrations happening in the city. If you book[…]

Sophomores and Soufflés

So far, being a sophomore is vastly different from being a freshman in every way possible. It’s surprisingly similar to the progression of independence that is also granted high school students as they work their way up through the food chain, but the leaps between years are greater in college. It starts with the biggest[…]

The first month is already gone! It is indeed a fast semester.

The moment I stepped into the University of Rochester again, all the images that I had stored in my mind from my previous visit hit me: the welcoming that I had been received with in February around the time that I had my interview; the manner of the people who were there in Admissions and[…]
