Maura Revaew, '17, International Studies Major

  I randomly took Ceramics as a gen-ed and I fell in love with it. Now I’m here pretty much—well, I shouldn’t say pretty much—I’m here every day. The ceramics studio is my happy place. Ceramics has helped me be more articulate because you have to be really specific. You’re...

Beat the Brr: Things to Do in Philly

Fact: During the winter, it’s so much easier to stay inside, wrapped up in a furry, warm blanket than it is to go outside bracing frigid air that hurts your face. Another fact: Staying cooped up too long can worsen the winter blues. Lots of people get sad in the winter. Maybe you suffer...

Long-distance Longing

Ah, college. A time of gorging at the dining hall, studying at the library until 1 a.m. and grabbing midnight milkshakes at the diner, Snapchatting your friends back home to show them how great a time you’re having at college… And, often, navigating long-distance relationships. This isn’t a...
