Student Blog: Falling for Fall

Reflecting on Autumn this year.

Student Blog: Falling for Fall Usually, when I think about fall, I think of crunchy leaves that make a mess of our deck and bitterly cold temperatures whenever the sun's not out.

This year, though, that changed, if only a little bit.

This year, it was full of article deadlines, and plans made with friends and family, and random photo-ops with said friends, as you can see here.

I became more aware of the world around me this year, and got to know my friends even more.

Just thought I'd write a little bit about that, and am hoping you all have found something to be thankful for this fall, or just this year in general.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Student Blog: What Academic Integrity Means to Me! Photo
When you were in middle or high school, I am certain that at least one educator had claimed that the most pointless lesson they taught was certainly the most important lesson in the whole universe. It was also emphasized that the lesson will also help you get through college. I vividly remember internally telling myself 'There is no way that a mathematical formula will help me conquer all my college adversities.'

My first week of my second semester of junior year was...long and short at the same time. It did pass by quickly, since half of my in-person classes were cancelled for most of the week, but slowly also, because most of that free time was spent sitting around, waiting for something to come up to entertain me.
