Last week I had the privilege to walk in the Fashion Merchandising spring fashion show. It was awesome. From the beautiful clothes I got to wear to the great people I got to work with I had a blast. The girls of the promotion class had such a great idea to showcase the hot spots […]

“I’ve Got Spirit…” even during spring break

by Carlyn March 21, 2014

Last Thursday night officially marked the beginning of spring break for me because I don’t have classes on Friday (I do have meetings, but no homework was due, so it can still count as break).

It’s a bit of a relief to know that winter break is just around the corner. That being said, I am really going to miss the […]

It’s the Holiday Season

by Conner November 25, 2013

It’s that time of year again. We’re just a few days away from Thanksgiving, a month from Christmas, then my birthday, and New Year’s! With these holidays come breaks from school, or times I usually think to be associated with relaxation and a lot less stress. I have a feeling this year will be different. […]
