Moving Off-Campus ... Again

The start of a new year always come with some changes. Different classes and schedules are expected by a junior student. As the years go on, it seems my life keeps seeing bigger and bigger changes. In the middle of my spring semester sophomore year, I was approached by a teammate and was offered a room in her apartment that she shared with another former teammate of mine.

A Once-in-a-Lifetime Parisian Journey

Hemingway in Paris poster

“Paris est une fête” was this year’s theme for the International Hemingway Conference in Paris—and it sure was a moveable feast for our little group that brought Misericordia across the Atlantic for great experiences, both academic and cultural. Every moment of our time in Paris brought new and exciting things (places, people, knowledge, and most importantly, food) for myself and my friends, and we are still amazed to have had the opportunity to learn in such a breathtaking place. We had the …

Confessions of a College Liaison

“I never had to study in high school”. “My high school did not prepare me for college-level work”. These are two of the most common phrases I hear from the students I work with on a regular basis. As a College Liaison, I work with students who are referred to the Student Success Center for any number of reasons. My role is to then reach out to the student, discuss the referral, and create a plan to get back on track. Most often, referrals come after an exam has been given. Other referrals can be…

Washington, DC

I learned so much about the way our government works and which committees, representatives, staffers, etc. are the ones that should be spoken to when working on various issues. I also learned many of the basic ins and outs of lobbying and …

Life is a Journey, Not a Destination

If you told me my first-year in college that I was going to graduate school, I would have laughed at you and say, “Oh sure!” Fast forward three-and-a-half years later, I’m laughing at myself.

Never would I see myself getting my bachelor’s and now my master’s. It was not the path I had in mind. Now that I see the benefits and working as a graduate assistant, I am very happy with the path I am taking.

A wise-man by the name of Ralph Waldo Emerson stated, “Life is a journey, not a destination.” …
