Everyone remembers how things went when we […]


Hello everyone! I hope everyone’s weekend went well!  I have to say that this weekend has been the longest one yet, obviously.  I will say that there’s a lot I can say that came out of this long weekend, and what stuck with me was that you should always be smart about your decision-making and […]

Tired of cafeteria food?

Cafeteria food can only keep you going for so long so every so often my friends and I like to venture off campus and find places to eat! Here are a few places that I would recommend checking out.

The End is Near

Hey everyone!  Oh what a way to end out the term! Well let me start out with, we survived registration week! Yay!! That is an accomplishment there in itself. My friend Caitlin decided to stay up really late Tuesday night and then she got up at 4:45 the next morning hoping for her LSFY class […]
