I think one of my favorite things about finals week is to see how it progresses. The Saturday and Sunday before are technically our reading days. So everyone picks their spot in the library, the pub, or the coffee shop (or outside on a nice day) and gets serious about remembering all the information they [...]
One of the fun things about being friends with mostly seniors is I get to go to their Senior Capstone presentations. Senior Capstone is the final step you take in your major. It takes something that you have been studying for a year or a semester and turns it into a project that reflects everything [...]
There is always one subject you struggle with most. For me, it’s Math. I have never been the best at it and I’ve never fully understood all the concepts. This became a problem when I took the math placement test before starting college. Luckily McDaniel gives you as many chances as you need to pass [...]
The end of every school year is filled with tradition. Each club or organization has their way of sending off the seniors and transferring power to the juniors. In my sorority at our last meeting, we do “pass downs.” This is a time when all the seniors come with as much Gamma Sig stuff as they want [...]

What better way to honor him than with cake, sonnets, and his plays!
Shakespeare in the Square is an event hosted every year by the English Department in Red Square to celebrate the literary works of Shakespeare. This year students and faculty gathered in the square to [...]
Every year the Office of Student Engagement throws a huge carnival for all the students a few weeks before the end of the semester. It’s a chance for us to relax and pretend to be kids again. This year was my third Spring Fling and by now I know exactly how to make the most [...]
Part of my Writing fr Nonprofit Organizations class is an internship. My internship is with Rape Crisis Intervention Service and every spring they do the Walk A Mile event.
Walk A Mile in Her Shoes is an event that takes place every spring as a fundraiser for RCIS. The concept of the event is for [...]
Working for Admissions can be very demanding at this point in the year. Our Admitted Students Days (ASD) are the best ways for admitted students to get a feel for campus. Luckily, I get to be a part of it all. Working as a tour guide gives me the opportunity to meet a huge group [...]
