Self-Isolation Reading Recommendations

Hello, friends! As we are all doing our best to social distance, I figured it was prime time to recommend some of my favorite books and share my reading list with you. I thought it would be fun to assign books to majors, so here we go. Creative Writing The Poet X by Elizabeth Acevedo If...

You Deserve Happiness

Ever since coming to Arcadia, I have had an immense love for planners! During this tough time, it is very easy to become overwhelmed with course work and keeping up with your own self-care.   My advice is to plan a lot or a little—whatever works for you—just give yourself some...

Bridging the Distance

Beyond the obvious fear and anxiety that comes from a global pandemic, all over people have been mourning the loss of various events needing to be canceled in order to combat the further spread of coronavirus. Being a final semester senior, I too feel the sting of not being able to...

Feed Your Spirit

During this time, things are a bit overwhelming, and certain things may be triggers for anxiety. However, I have so many things that I feel grateful for. I am grateful to safely be back home in Florida. I am grateful to be able to move my body outside to do home workouts. I am...

Dance All Knight

A few weeks ago, before our lives got flipped upside down, Arcadia hosted its very first THON™ to raise money for kids with cancer. My roommates, Lydia Mossuto and Kelly Muntzenberger, convinced me to attend, and all I can say is: It did not disappoint.  There were games, food,...

A Colorful Collective: Arcadia’s Holi Festival

March 9 began bright and vibrant at Arcadia University. It was the nicest day all semester. Students conversed and laid out around campus with the Green acting as an enormous tanning bed. I started my day in my Hinduism class, where I was reminded of the Holi Festival, which would be...

Grad School Crash Course

Whether you’ve had senioritis and have been counting down the days until your last exam, or just the mention of the Real World is enough to make you break out in a cold sweat, college ends for everyone eventually. Though most leave higher education to pursue a career in the workforce, many opt...

Bee-Lieve It: All About the Honors Program

I’m occasionally pretty clueless, and maybe that’s why I didn’t know Arcadia had an Honors program. After submitting my application, I got a letter in the mail congratulating me on my acceptance into the Honors program—the Honors program I didn’t know existed. I didn’t see anything...

The Truth About Transferring From Community College

If you’re in community college, you’re probably wondering what the transition to a four-year institute is really like. In my mind, the transition would be simple—essentially, a university is like community college, except you get to live on campus.  But it wasn’t exactly like I...

Discovering My Calling

I graduated from Collegium Charter School in Exton, Pa., in 2018. Until about two months before I graduated high school, I still had the nervous expectation that I was supposed to know what I wanted to major in when I went to college. I knew I loved creative writing and reading literature, so I...

The Process of Production: From Script to Scene

Let’s wind the clock back to the end of the fall semester. While most students were cramming for finals and chipping away at projects, I was focused on another enterprise. It was days before the semester ended, the rain had just picked up, and I needed all hands on deck in a graveyard....
