How the Dendro Lab Taught Me It’s Okay to Not Know What You’re Doing

When I first started my journey at Arcadia, I was a Biology student. One aspect of the Biology Department that intrigued me were the faculty-sponsored research labs. The majority of professors within the department have research labs, ranging from microbiology to animal behavior to forest ecology....

How I Utilized My Network to Find Success

As someone who is perpetually busy, I get asked quite often how I manage my time between my responsibilities. I’ve always been a self-starter, so finding things to keep me busy is second nature to me whenever I’m in a new environment. However, I have realized that most people don’t know where to...

My Favorite Books of 2020

While 2020 has definitely been rough for everyone, one thing that has kept me grounded throughout the year has been reading. I have managed to read 85 books so far, and hope to hit 100 by the end of the year. My friends always ask me for reading recommendations so I figured I would share my top 5...

Extensions, Apps, and More to Stay Stress-Free and Organized

Now that we are nearly halfway through the semester, it is safe to say that working from home is vastly different from working on campus. That is no surprise. We have had to adjust to new ways of learning, staying organized, and keeping our stress levels low.  Since I am taking...

How to Succeed at Online Learning

Hello friends! I know we were all disappointed to discover that the fall semester would be held completely online. There is no right way to feel about it. We are in a very unique situation, and it’s okay to feel whatever you are feeling at the moment. At first, I was extremely disappointed and...

Embracing Change in the Wake of COVID-19

For a lot of us, change brings feelings of uncomfortability, anxiety, and distress. My original plan for this post was to write about embracing change in college, yet I find myself unable to do so without also including the change we have all had to embrace in the last few months. 2020 has provided...
