Failed Internship

by Alumni Posts November 25, 2013

As a first semester Freshman, I was so excited to get to have an opportunity for an internship. Yes, it was unpaid, but I figured it would really add to my resume. And I needed more things besides Taco Bell and Racanelli’s Pizzia. I needed something that actually applied to my degree, and this company […]

Food With Love

by Alumni Posts November 25, 2013

So several months ago, I joined this program with Goodies.co and Food With Love. Every month, for about $7, they send you a box of snacks. These are usually new products that are not yet sold in stores and they ask that you taste and review them. It’s fun! And honestly, the more I think […]

Study Time

by Kristen November 25, 2013

As we’re nearing final exams, the pressure to finish projects and start studying begins to increase.  I always begin to see more students hiding out in corners of campus, preparing for tests.  I know finals can be a stressful time, and we don’t always like to think about them this early.  But eventually, we have […]

The Move-In

by Alumni Posts November 25, 2013

I’ve lived here about three weeks now, and I suppose I’ve gotten to know the apartment pretty well at this point. Perks of living in a really old building: -Lots of closet space -Tall ceilings -French details on the walls, trim, doors, framework. -Mosaic tile in the hallways -Hardwood floors Not-so-perky things: -Squeaky EVERYTHING. Floors, […]

Thanksgiving and Finals Week are coming!

by Penny November 25, 2013

The thanksgiving break is coming, but that also means that our finals week is coming. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays in the United States, because it means family gathering. It’s like the Lunar Chinese New Year in Taiwan. However, it’s sad that the final week of the semester is coming as well. Therefore, […]

Pumpkin Party

by Penny November 25, 2013

Have you heard about pumpkin parties? It is a holiday party designed for Halloween. This fall season, I had a very good time attending a Pumpkin Party with my friends. At the party, everyone brought a pumpkin to carve and most people dressed up for fun. My dress up style was a “Hippie girl.” So, I […]

Hunger Games: Catching Fire!

by Alumni Posts November 25, 2013

Last night I went to the midnight premiere of Catching Fire. It was amazing! I had never been to a midnight premiere before — the whole experience was so exciting. I was excited the whole day looking forward to seeing the movie. It did not disappoint. The movie was so awesome. I thought it followed […]

My Favorite Things

by Alumni Posts November 24, 2013

I’ll be the first to tell you that I’m not a big “Sound of Music” fan. It’s a classic – don’t get me wrong – but it’s just a little too “overdone” for me. However, with Thanksgiving upon us, I’d like to talk about a few of my favorite little things in life that simply […]

Work Hard, Shop Hard

by Alumni Posts November 21, 2013

Tuesday was super exciting this week… because it was Environmental Club’s shopping night at Rosemary Grove! Rosemary Grove is a great store in Kirkwood that sells Fair Trade items supporting both the local economy and developing countries around the world. We have a partnership with them – anytime you shop there and mention us 10% […]

SNL in STL

by Corie November 18, 2013

On Saturday night was my first experience of STL Up Late. The best way to explain it is that it is a STL version of SNL. I believe they have shows every saturday night. If you get a chance I highly recommend it! It is only $10. So it is an affordable thing to do […]
