Well, I Guess This is Growing Up

by Alumni Posts February 25, 2014

“Hindsight is Vibrant, Reality: Rarely Lit”

by Alumni Posts February 18, 2014

So maybe you think that since I’m a senior, with almost 4 years of college life behind me, I have it all figured out. Not really. I’m just making it up as I go. But I can offer some advice based on my past experiences, good and bad.  All things considered, looking back now – […]

A Love Letter to Chemistry.

by Alumni Posts February 14, 2014

On Monday I had the pleasure of turning my hands blue (Okay, this is totally an exaggeration, but still.). Also on Monday, I had the real pleasure of calculating my engineering physics grade after receiving my very first graded physics exam. Then Wednesday I spent 3 hours with the engineering physics tutor, before going to […]

Do What Makes You Happy and Do It Well!

by Alumni Posts December 16, 2013

I have always loved performing, and I guess I am decent at it as I did receive a scholarship for performing for my undergrad and I do want to be a theatre teacher.  But, if this is my passion, then why haven’t I done it more? It’s so easy for us to get caught up […]

Resumes, Interviews and Jobs!

by Alumni Posts December 9, 2013

Are you approaching graduation?  Trying to figure out how to find a job?  Or as I call it, getting a “big-kid job.”  When I was graduating from Lindenwood with my BFA, I began to do the graduation freak out!  The “Wait, what do I do now?” questioning.  A little gem that is not really known […]

It’s Hard to Say Farewell

by Alumni Posts December 2, 2013

After 24 years of constantly moving  and leaving behind friends. I should be okay to move back to the East Coast; but this is not the case.  Everything started when I was a year old. My family moved to Japan and after 4 years we moved to Peru.  Well, I don’t quite remember my Japanese […]

by Alumni Posts November 26, 2013

Last week, we made Butternut Squash Macaroni with the first graders at Maplewood Richmond Heights Early Childhood Center. Every single kid loved it!  We had no picky eaters at all.  While I was cooking this recipe with them, I thought about us college students. How hard it is to cook a nutritious meal.  This recipe is […]

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, […]
