The Original J.T.

by Alumni Posts July 30, 2014

If you are into music and pop culture, you probably think of Justin Timberlake when you hear the initials J.T. However, before the modern J.T. was James Taylor. He was the original, considering he first rose to fame in the 1970s. He continues to be an outstanding singer, songwriter, and guitarist, and I feel lucky […]

Yes, this year my family and I started the 4th all decked out in red, white and blue in Lambert airport. At 4 a.m., I was going through security to get on a plane to go to Mexico. Now, it wasn’t just a normal family vacation. My cousin was getting married. It was a week-long […]

The Smallest Family Members

by Alumni Posts April 25, 2014

My family members would not be considered “animal people.”  My oldest and youngest brothers like to play with dogs, and of course we all love puppies and kittens.  But, overall, we are not prone to loving animals.  That being said, we do have two small dogs as members of our family.  Rather, we did have […]

Supernatural

by Alumni Posts March 24, 2014

A lot of our values growing up have been shaped by movies and television and I’m not ashamed to admit it. This spring break, I’ve been catching up on a TV show called “Supernatural.” It’s about two brothers that fight evil forces in the world. The show is funny, graphic, and full of cool visual effects, […]

Holiday Cookie Making

by Alumni Posts December 12, 2013

Each year my family gathers for a cookie making day.  Now, for some reason we bake at the beginning of the month and somehow think that the cookies will make it to Christmas Eve, which they never do.  The cookies we make are Brookies, Red Hots and Smuckers. A Brookie is basically brownie batter, topped […]

Happy Holidays

by Alumni Posts December 11, 2013

I feel so guilty already! My family doesn’t exactly have set holiday plans for Winter break like everybody else. Rather, we’re spending time bonding with each other because I feel like that’s something we can certainly improve on! The Christmas season isn’t about gifts and gluttony, food and folly. It’s about love. Thus, that’s what […]
