Going Home for Thanksgiving

To think – I almost didn’t go home for the holiday…I didn’t book my train ticket until a week before because I was thinking about staying at school during the break, but that I did. So I wanted to share with you a breakdown of my week: Monday – Done with classes, awesome. Had a Senate meeting at 9PM,[…]

Does the President Really Play Frisbee on the Quad?

One of my favorite conversations with a parent happened recently after an interview I conducted in a hotel.  The family had visited campus the month prior and had an excellent experience.  After I interview with students I always take time to answer parent’s questions (if they have any).  The father of this student was very[…]

Thanksgiving Break from an international glance

By Tuesday evening, the school was emptied out, indicating Thanksgiving Day break but I could not feel anything because the emptying process happened when I was using my last bit of energy before break to finish assignments. On Wednesday morning I could count on one finger how many people I saw on my way to[…]

Lucky Penny

On those rare occasions when I find an old penny, one that’s a little tarnished and worn away on its surface, I often stop to wonder where that penny has been or whose hands have held it previously.

“In the Eye of All Trade” by Professor Jarvis

The Best Food You Will Have Ever Tasted In Your Life

I’m talking about the food on campus. I know it’s not your mom’s stews, your dad’s stir-frys, or your grandma’s pastries. Compared to those, campus food is like eating a piece of cardboard, or dirt. There are certain foods that my friends will eat with hesitation throughout the whole meal.  I still don’t know why[…]

Study, Study, Study

I’m not talking about studying for class (even though I guess that’s important), I’m talking about scientific studies.  We’ve all heard about people selling their bodies to science, or subjecting themselves to obscene amounts of radiation with hopes of becoming a super hero and earning a couple hundred bucks.  Well the ones I’m talking about[…]

My First S’more

When I was preparing to embark on my trip to the United States – specifically Rochester – it was clear I was on the pathway to discovery.  Yes, discovery of: knowledge, myself and people in general. Little did I know that the discovery package includes the seemingly trivial aspects of the life of the average[…]
