Calm Before the Storm

February 11, 2020

First Semester Nostalgia

January 27, 2020

Slow down and enjoy being a freshman. I was so ready to grow up, move out of the dorm room, and be an “adult” that I didn't even really cherish the memories I was making freshman year.

Why AP's Still Matter

January 21, 2020

If you’re in high school and taking AP courses, you may just be taking them to boost your GPA. However, if you earn a passing score on any of your AP exams, it’s likely you’re able to receive college credit for that course which means there’s one less class for you to take in college.

Is the 8AM worth it?

January 14, 2020

You will probably hear most people tell you to never take an 8am class in college. I would say it depends entirely on you, as there are pros and cons to taking a class that early. The most important thing when deciding whether or not to take an 8am is to look at what other times you could take that class.

Friends from Home and Friends at School

January 06, 2020

Home for the Holidays

January 03, 2020

One of my favorite things to pack is my reindeer onesie, which I wear around my apartment all the time, to socials, and even to class sometimes. I’m not exactly sure how much my professors like it, but at least I’m warm in class.

Finding the Best Library Spot

December 11, 2019

Like most things in college, figuring out the study scene just takes a little time and a little bit of uncertainty. You’re only a freshman once, so definitely use this to your advantage and embrace the art of not fully knowing what’s going on.

Under The Weather at School

December 04, 2019

In college, you’re constantly around a lot of people, which means you’re constantly around a lot of germs. Since you’re in such tight quarters with a lot of people, you’re more likely to get sick while in college than you were when you were in high school.

Holiday Season on Campus

December 02, 2019

Another fall time activity I love is Light Up UCF. Around the end of November UCF builds an outdoor winter wonderland. There are Christmas lights all over Addition Financial Arena along with an outdoor ice skating rink. Even though it was still 80+ degrees outside, they were able to do this.

My Favorite Organization on Campus

November 13, 2019

As an incoming freshman attending a large university and living in an apartment off-campus, I knew that I needed to get involved early so that I was not at a disadvantage and could be proactive in meeting new people, creating my network, and building my resume.

Who's Applying Where

November 11, 2019

It’s easy for everyone to get caught up in who’s applying where and whether or not they got in. While the college application process is an experience you share with your peers, you have to remember that ultimately it’s really about which college is the best decision for you all around, titles and social factors aside.

Making it to an 8 AM

November 11, 2019

If you are a freshman coming into college thinking that you can make it to your 8 am class every week because you woke up that early for high school: you’re wrong. If you are anything like me, then you already struggled with waking up early in high school. Even worse, now that you’re in college, there is no one to wake you up.
