college of arts and science
It's that time of year, blog-readers. Everything is spiraling into a just-barely-manageable madness. Every club I'm part of leadership for has events to help coordinate, final speeches and essays are due, and actual finals are just around the corner. Meanwhile, I'm trying to enjoy the time I have left with friends here in Nashville (particularly the soon-to-graduate seniors) and enjoy my final weeks here before I return home for the summer.
Every once in a while I reminisce back to those wonderful (ha!) months of high school during which I googled different universities every day, wrote personal statements, and stressed about SAT scores…maybe more so now because soon I will have to do the same thing to apply to graduate school…and I remember discussions I had...

At Vanderbilt, we have the opportunity to be published by simply completing the mandatory course work.
Each new semester in college is like a new year…sure you might be taking the second semester of a course (i.e. General Chemistry A vs. General Chemistry B), but it’s still a new class with a new teacher and a lot of new faces, give or take some familiar ones. It’s important to treat each...

The Women’s and Gender Studies Department hosts a lecture series called the Brown Bag Lecture Series that features talks from representatives of multiple organizations around campus. The one that I attended featured T.J. Jourian, the Program Coordinator of the Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Intersex Life at Vanderbilt University. I always enjoy these...
I have pretty much spent the last three days studying (super fun weekend) and I think I would have lost my sanity if it weren’t for my amazing study group. We call it that but it is really a few of my close friends who have braved the Organic Chemistry and Biology combo with me.
For those of you who haven’t seen my other blogs, I am currently studying abroad in Southern France in a city called Aix-en-Provence. However, sometimes students like to joke around…even some of the host families tell us to remember that while our studies are important, it is also essential to recognize that we are on...
