Housing Access

Jan. 2, 2016—Some students stay at Vanderbilt during breaks. Requesting housing access is really easy and has no additional charge.

Finals.

Dec. 23, 2015—A lot of you can probably relate to this, but studying for finals was never really a concern in high school. I was always pretty certain about the grade I’d receive, but in college it’s definitely more difficult to get the grade I want. Also, the most annoying thing was finding out that an A-...

That’s a Wrap!

Dec. 21, 2015—Things have finally wrapped up, and I'm not talking about a to-go order at Chipotle, although that's almost as important. My first semester of college is now officially behind me, but I'll always keep it in the forefront of my mind.

The Five People You Meet During Finals

Dec. 18, 2015—And yes, those are my mechanism-covered whiteboards. I’m very proud of them. They helped me get a good grade in Orgo this semester, although I think they’re less Beautiful Mind and more like that scene in 21 Jump Street where Channing Tatum draws 4s all over the board in his Chemistry class

Winding Down and Moving Out

Dec. 14, 2015—Finals. Yikes. That may be what you think, but let me tell you, it's not nearly as bad as rumor has it. In fact, staying on top of things allows you to have a lot of fun!

The Weird, Short Few Weeks Between Thanksgiving and Winter Break

Dec. 1, 2015—Just as we get settled back in, we leave again. But even in the campus chaos that is the time between breaks, I can’t help but be thankful (maybe it’s the contagious holiday spirit, or maybe it’s the fact that Vanderbilt is just literally my favorite place on Earth).

What I’m Looking Forward To

Nov. 17, 2015—It’s been a little while since my last blog post. I’m still recovering from a killer week with two big exams and a research paper, but I figured I should write something before finals approach. Oh boy. Don’t want to start thinking about that. The semester is gradually winding to a close. I just had...

Winter Staycation

Feb. 22, 2015—This past week at Vanderbilt has probably been one of the most memorable in my five and a half semesters here. Vanderbilt cancelled classes on Monday and Tuesday because of the ice storm that hit us and that blanketed our campus and the rest of Nashville in at least an inch of ice! I’m from...
