3 Ways College Surprised Me

You’ve heard it from everyone, everywhere: College is a huge adjustment. I had expectations before my first year, and most of them were pretty accurate. Some of them were wrong, though! Here are three ways I was surprised by Arcadia University. 1. An individual experience is just...

Keeping Work and Fun Separate

In seventh grade, due to all my health issues, I did a year of cyber school. It was necessary at the time, but it was so boring. I didn’t learn anything, and I was bored all the time. It’s a bit different now, with college being harder and more important than seventh grade. This is the...

Staying Sane Through Baking

The only way I’ve stayed sane through this COVID-craziness is by making food. Yes, I’ve made my own loaves of herbal bread (sourdough hasn’t been my thing), but it doesn’t have to be dramatic as that. Even taking the time to assemble a sandwich or toss a small salad together can give my...

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...

6 Tips for Surviving Your Not-So-Favorite Class

I am not the biggest fan of one of my classes. I wouldn’t say I hate it, exactly, but it’s my least favorite out of all the ones I’m taking. It’s not a class related to my major, and I chose it thinking that it would be fun, as well as push me out of my comfort zone a bit.  Well, it’s...

Is College Actually Better Than High School?

Okay, yeah, everyone says college is better than high school, and that in a few years, high school will just feel like a bad dream. But is that really true? I know I didn’t buy it. Because I didn’t think my high school experience was that bad.  Now, though? Now I know things can be so much...

A Kidney Biopsy—and Unexpected Benefits

The last time I was admitted to a hospital was January 2016. Of course, my transplanted kidney decided to wait until the most inconvenient time to throw a fit: the third week of this semester. Which isn’t just any semester, mind you. No, this is my first ever college semester. The transition to...
