Set It Off

by Corie April 10, 2014

Last night I went to support my friends band, Struck By Sound at Fubar. But, I didn’t realize that Set It Off was the headliner. I almost died. Jumping around and rocking out all night, brings me back to high school. I got back in that mosh pit. My body took a beating after that […]

Take Me Out

by Alumni Posts 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 […]

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/21/st-louis-reasons-to-love_n_4993763.html?utm_hp_ref=tw After reading this article in The Huffington Post, I have to say I agree with it.

As soon as I read the article about St. Louis being a hidden gem, I knew it would be all over my newsfeed on Facebook. The article is so true. St. Louis is very special. I’ve always had a love for STL because my family is here. Now, that I go to school here, I […]

Concert Countdowns

by Carlyn March 25, 2014

I admit, I am absolutely obsessed with pop culture, especially musicians. I enjoy listening to live music, especially if the singer is considered a celebrity. I have major fan-girl moments where I scream so loud my eyes water and jump so much my ankles hurt. Over spring break, I saw Demi Lovato in concert at […]

Come Sail Away

by Alumni Posts March 12, 2014

In case anyone was wondering, I will be spending Spring Break on the beaches of the Meramec river in Arnold, MO. So basically, I’m just going home. I ain’t mad, though. To be honest, I don’t really have the kind of personality where I can just drop everything, party for a week, and then face […]

STL Restaurants, Part II

by Kristen March 3, 2014

Like I promised, this week is the sequel to my last post of suggested St. Louis restaurants.  Most of the places I suggested last week are typical types of food we could find at many places—many people have had pasta, burgers, and donuts before.  So today I would like to bring to your attention some […]

First Mardi Gras!

by Corie March 3, 2014

This past weekend was my first Mardi Gras experience! I had a blast!! I went with some new friends: Tyler, Kristen, Alexis and Tim. It was also my first time in Soulard. Beads, people and beer everywhere. We took the metro link to get there. I figured it was going to be crowded, and it […]

STL Restaurants

by Kristen February 18, 2014

On Friday, I was treated to a Valentine’s Dinner at Guido’s Pizzeria and Tapas on The Hill (if you are not familiar with “The Hill,” it is the name for the Italian neighborhood in St. Louis).  The food was delicious, and the atmosphere was upscale without being overly priced.  I thought I would blog and […]

Or that Father of Rock ‘n’ Roll Chuck Berry continues to perform monthly right in town? These and other interesting facts may be learned at the Missouri History Museum’s newest exhibit, which celebrates […]
