Here’s an idea; why not head over to BuzzFeed? They’ll catch me up right away and I’ll be able to converse with anyone I want regarding the weekend’s headlines. More…

People of all ages, backgrounds, races, and cultures assembled in Boston Common on January 21 for the Women’s March for America. While the march was heavily focused on women’s rights, it represented much more. The march represented the country standing in solidarity with each other, showing newly-elected Washington that all citizens of the U.S. will fight for their rights. More…

When I first told family and friends I would be traveling to Vietnam, I would get jokes about getting shipped off to fight in the Vietnam War or they would start talking to me about meeting Anthony Bourdain (a Travel Channel chef who has visited the country multiple times). Although I didn’t fulfill everyone’s wishes, I was able to take away a lot from spending two weeks in Asia.

Symposium can be a lot of different things. It can be a day of gratitude for some, having accomplished a semester-long project to present in front of admiring peers, faculty, and community members alike. For others it is a day of relief. After months of planning, the day has finally come where everything falls into place and many congratulations are given.
