“Family” dinners

by Deanna October 3, 2012

In the beginning of the school year, myself and five friends decided every Tuesday night we would have “Family” dinners because all of us lowered our meal plans this year.

Library Story

by Alumni Posts October 21, 2011

My first year at college, I attended a massive state university (I’ll bet you can guess the one). In the first semester, I had to learn a valuable lesson in focusing on studying that involves the library.
