College Life


Welcome Back Panthers! It is time to get back into school mode and make this semester awesome. One thing I love about spring semester is that it seems to go by much faster, because not only do we have this upcoming Monday off for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, but also because Spring Break is less than two months away. Not to mention there is always some hope for ...


Thanksgiving Break is ideally supposed to be a time when you relax, enjoy family and friends, catch up on the sleep you’ve missed from studying, and reflect on what you are thankful for.  But when you are in college that idea is far from reality. Here are five things me and mostly every other college student will be doing during Thanksgiving “break”:

1. Playing Catch Up!

As you know our campus is not a traditional campus. We’re not bound by walls or built in a certain formation. WE LIVE, LEARN, AND THRIVE IN THE CITY!

Cool Info for Student Photographers

1. The food is ALWAYS amazing

One of the most unexpected things at the Homecoming Royal Ball is how amazing the food is! My friends always know that if I am not on the dance floor then I am totally somewhere stuffing my face. The small bites are fancy, but just right for snacking.
