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 […]

Traditions

by Kristen December 10, 2013

This week, I was going to talk about finals and give you guys some of my best tips on how to master them.  I was going to say that it’s better to study a little every day instead of cramming, to organize your notes into main ideas, to highlight main concepts, to give your brain […]

Holiday Traditions

by Alumni Posts December 9, 2013

I have always found the Holidays very stressful!  At first it was because my mom, dad, sister and I lived out of state so instead of a time of relaxing and celebration we were baking, packing, traveling, and living from a suitcase.  It was never relaxing or fun.  Now that we are back in-state, the […]

Giving Thanks

by Kristen December 2, 2013

I know that there are a million blogs that have been written in the past week beginning with “I am thankful for…”  But most of us do have a lot to be thankful for.  And by the fourth day of Thanksgiving break with my family, I desperately need to be reminded that I am thankful […]

Is It Winter Break Yet?

by Corie October 25, 2013

I am so ready for winter break like you would not believe. I have been stressed probably since week 4 or 5. Luckily I dedicate Thursday nights to go out with friends and unwind. Since I am not from St. Louis it is interesting to go to different places downtown. The experience is great and […]

Blue & Maize meet Purple & Gold

by Alumni Posts October 18, 2013

One of the best things about being in a small school is that sense of welcoming warmth everyone experiences from finding supportive friends, no matter where you are from. Ultimately, they become your family. I was amazed at how easy it was to bring two of my “families” together. From my homeland, Justin is a […]

Taking the Leap

by Alumni Posts October 10, 2013

I have always wanted to be a teacher! Literally since I was 4 years old my goal has never changed. Now I am 25. I have graduated with my BFA (not in education, due to a scholarship), and since then, I have been working on my MAT. Right after my graduation with my BFA, I […]

Sundays of Pancakes and Hiking

by Conner August 1, 2013

The days of summer are ticking by one by one, with some surprisingly cool temperatures these past few days. This past Sunday, I did the normal routine of making pancakes, waffles, or some sort of breakfast meal (from scratch, I might add) for my family. During breakfast, we were discussing what we could do that […]

American Heroes

by Alumni Posts June 26, 2013

Next week will be our nation’s 237th birthday. Today in America, it’s easy to get caught up in politics. We oftentimes look at the economy, the discrimination that is (very sadly) still present, and the number of people out of work and complain and gripe about our government and about how things are as compared […]

Everything I Need to Know…

by Alumni Posts June 15, 2013

Hello, dear readers! You may have realized that I’ve been on a blogging hiatus for almost two weeks. That’s because I was on vacation with my family in Orlando, Florida. While there, we went to three Disney World theme parks (Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and – my favorite! – EPCOT), and we also went to […]
