A Change of Heart and an Exciting Escape Room

I’ll be honest with you, friends. Like many, I went into this semester with a not-so-positive mindset. I immediately thought it would be really challenging for me to enjoy having my normal tag-teaming literature discussions online and was bummed about not being able to visit high schools this fall...

The Rewards of Going Out on a Limb

With more downtime than a usual semester, I set out to find a job to help support me and my family during the pandemic. The job I came across has been such an invaluable experience that it certainly has helped me diversify my experience as a worker and a member of the community.  If there...

It’s Finally Sinking In: I’m a Senior and This Is It

Since being a fully online Arcadia student, I don’t think it has completely registered that this is my senior year of college. That means at the end of the school year, I am done with my undergraduate degree. I have a B.A. And I need to have my next plans in order because now I am a real-real adult...

Coronavirus: Behind the Camera

In troubled times like these, where motivation may seem more scarce than ever, coronavirus-quarantine-living can lead many to lay comfortably with soda and chips in hand without a bother to be had. As for myself, I have been trying my hardest to use this time effectively to better my...

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...

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...

Return to Sender

If you told me in my senior year of high school that I would spend the rest of my career there, I would have laughed and walked away. I was so ready to graduate and forget about the awkward, embarrassing, and goofy four years I just spent in school.  Yet there I was, on Oct. 3,...

After Election Day Abroad, Back to the ’Burbs

Now that I am back on campus, I am reflecting about my time abroad in London. Thinking back now, I feel like I was in a dream. My last day in London was a blur. I was so incredibly exhausted, but as an intern in Parliament, I was able to take part in Election Day. This election was...
