Oct. 23, 2013—Students do a whole host of things during fall break. A few stay put on campus, some go home, and others go on fun short trips. This year I finally joined some of my good friends on the annual Fall SPOTS trip!
Oct. 7, 2013—When you find a cause that you really love, you end up bringing into conversations a lot. That's kind of how I feel about human trafficking. It's a huge and heavy need around the world, and I have been SO ecstatic about getting involved with International Justice Mission (IJM) to help make my mark on this injustice.
Oct. 2, 2013—My parents came to parents weekend my first year at Vanderbilt, but they have not been to parents weekend since. Honestly, parents weekend is more crowded and busy than most, so my parents try and come when things are calmer (and they can hang out with all of my friends).

Sep. 17, 2013—This year, for the first time, I was able to go home for Yom Kippur, which is the holiest day of the Jewish year.

Sep. 16, 2013—For the past few years, Vanderbilt has sponsored a weekend of service in honor of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Organizations set up events in the Nashville community to help others and students all across campus sign up to join (even if they aren't in that organization).
Aug. 20, 2013—Round 4 commences in a few hours. Being a 3-time veteran of first-day preparations, I knew that it was necessary to soak in all the lazy free time I possibly could before the first day of classes. Once that hits, the busy-bee life of a student here on campus starts!
