Take Me Out

by Marielle April 9, 2014

Before I start this post, I want to clear something up. I am a bandwagon sports fan. Cardinals, Blues, Rams, etc., I really do not care if they win or lose. However, I do like to join in on festivities. For example: opening day. Technically, the opening day of the season was last Monday, even [...]

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 [...]

Return from the British Isles

by Kristen March 31, 2014

Hello again!  As we’re moving back into the swing of school, you’re probably wishing you were still in the vacation spot you spent spring break in.  Or at home, sitting on the couch and eating too many Girl Scout cookies.  Either way, I understand how you feel.  I think I need another whole week of [...]

Spring Break

by Britney March 31, 2014

My spring break didn’t go as planned. I actually enjoyed my time. Though I didn’t spend a lot of time with my family at home, I enjoyed my time with my external (outside) family. The first day of break I stayed on campus and worked to make extra money and went home on Thursday night. [...]

Below are some of my favorite pictures from my Special Topics theatre course focused on the Humana Festival of New American Plays in Louisville, Kentucky. This was definitely a trip to remember! Stopping to take a lunch break at an Amish buffet with one of my roommates, Angela, while on the road to Kentucky. It [...]

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 [...]
