Dallas Days

by Carlyn April 15, 2014

Every spring, the fashion merchandising department alternates between taking trips to New York City and Dallas. I had the absolute time of my life on the NYC trip last year, so couldn’t wait for the Dallas one this year. It was a short, but sweet trip that lasted three days. This study tour landed during […]

Research Methods

by Isabella April 9, 2014

So… I’ve spent the first six months in 2014 trying to decide whether I wanted to do a thesis or not. In the graduate program for speech-pathology, this is optional, so we have a choice. I asked around; students who did do one felt incredibly gratified and fulfilled. Those who did not do one were […]

Changes…

by Carly April 7, 2014

I knew going into the week after spring break that it was going to be the “Face the To-Do List I was Supposed to Tackle During Spring Break Week” week. Does that make sense? However I write it though, the week was, in a word, rough. And I loved it for that. Because weeks that […]

A Spring Break to Remember

by Courtney March 29, 2014

Out of the four spring breaks I’ve had while in college, I’d have to say that spring break 2014 is, by far, my most memorable. Yes, last year’s spring break was pretty memorable; after all, it was when I took the GRE for the first time (yippee) and when I started my internship at my […]

Speech Therapy Observation

by Joanna March 24, 2014

This week I had the opportunity to meet with a private practitioner speech therapist. She talked with me about all the different places she has worked as a speech-language pathologist, and even let me observe a therapy session! I was super stoked because this was the first time I got to watch a therapy session […]

aRgh!

by Courtney March 16, 2014

Imagine a world without the letter “R.” Pretty hard, right? (That last phrase, omitting the letter “R,” would read as such: “Petty had, ight?”) It’s pretty obvious letter “R” is a vital letter in the English alphabet. And, as someone whose first and last names depend on “R” for that amazing connecting sound, I’m currently […]

Major oh major

by Tim March 10, 2014

My major, back when I was a little freshman, was to become a English teacher. My best friend and mentor Jeffery Facchin inspired me to do this. I was enjoying the knowledge that came with this major. I had a education class my senior year that changed my out look. I was starting to become […]

Under Pressure.

by Carly March 7, 2014

Tuesday night as I was at the checkout counter at Whole Foods, the cashier asked me if I had any exciting plans for the rest of the evening. Naturally, I did: “Meh, just a ton of homework,” I complained. “Oh yeah, it’s getting to be about midterm-time, isn’t it?” said he. Indeed. It. Is. The […]
