“5 Tips for Surviving Your Freshman Year” by Jennifer Most

“Time flies by.” I always heard the popular saying, but it never seemed true. Sometimes, I feel like time is dreadful; I sit down to write a paper and my brain doesn’t work. I watch the seconds inch by. Other times, in the blink of an eye, it’s already Thursday. How did the week go by so quickly? Thinking more broadly: how am I in college? You mean, I graduated high school? I’m about to enter my 20s? Excuse me, WHAT? Continue reading

“Time Flies When UD’s Having Fun” by Carly Patent

Recalling my first day of kindergarten comes easily to me. I wore a purple dress with flowers and a pair of pristine white sandals. My backpack, which was almost as big as me, was bright pink with tiny light pink and purple flowers decorating the straps. My lunchbox was decked out with everything Cinderella, from a picture of her in her huge blue ball gown to cut outs of her glass slipper and animal friends. Around my neck hung a piece of yarn with a laminated bus dangling from it, serving as a form of identification detailing my name, teacher’s name, grade, bus number, bus stop, and classroom number.

“Here’s to the Group Chat” by Stella Castor

Here’s to the group chat. That magnificent, oh-so-essential part of college life. Here’s to the GroupMe app, which almost all of us seem to universally have. Here’s to the floor group chat, where events are promoted and assistance is requested. Here’s to the floor group chat without the RA, where memes are spammed and arguments are settled. Here’s to that group chat that’s just you and five friends, and here’s to that group chat where you only know two out of a hundred people.

“Loving the Classics” by Alyssa Schiff

During high school I took four years of Latin, and then I assumed my love for ancient Rome would die a painless death and that would be the end of it. I assumed fairly incorrectly, as this semester I took up the classes HIST341 (Ancient Rome) and LATN102 (Latin 2). Though Latin 2 was more of a review for the four years, it reinvigorated my passion for Latin, and Ancient Rome supplied a newly found love for classical history. After planning my schedule for next semester I realized that there were only so many classes that I could realistically take that were outside of my major, minor, and concentration. This became an ongoing struggle for me and I made several schedules trying to map how I could sneak in a mythology class among the other required classes I need. Continue reading
