Dear Hope College

Dear Hope College, Let me preface this post with some honesty – Hope was NOT my first choice. I didn’t want to come here because I had family that has been here. I wanted to go somewhere different, not following in the footsteps of my family. Four years later, I find myself struggling leaving behind […]

What My Burrito Bowl Tells Me About My Life

You betcha. You read the title right. Everyone’s burrito bowl (or burrito, or quesadilla) truly explains their personality.

April 18th is approaching, and there are questions out there about Admitted Student Day, so I thought I would answer them for everyone! If you can’t make it, just remember that it’s completely OK!

Here’s Why I’m Ready To Leave College.

Firstly, I would like to thank all of those who read my last blog post, “Things Seniors (STILL) Don’t Want To Hear.” It was a stunning success, and I appreciate all of your continual support and positive comments.

Things Seniors (STILL) Don’t Want To Hear

Kultura Polska / Polish Culture
