“Burnt Out? Learn to Take Effective Breaks” by Alex Stone

It is that point in the semester again: the dreaded but inevitable burnout. We are so close to being done! I must admit, I never understand how the semester passes by so quickly. However, with the break just within our reach, classes become harder, assignments pile up, and the burnout seems to get worse. I still have exams, projects, lab reports, essays, and presentations for the Honors section of my medical Spanish writing course. As a Writing Fellow, there are conferences I need to schedule with Honors freshman and essays I need to read. It all feels so overwhelming at times. There is so much to do in a day, and I do not know how it will all get done–especially now that it feels like the days are shorter with the sun setting at 5 PM. Continue reading

“A Recipe for Success” by Jenny Gloyd

Food truly brings people together. I have fond memories of cooking with my family when I was younger. During the holidays, we would make thin sugar cookies with a single almond in the center called sand tarts. On any occasion, we would roll out some pre-made pizza dough as best we could, and load it with tons of toppings.

Everyone invited contributed a side, a drink, or a dessert, and we ended up with a really amazing spread. Continue reading

“Food for Thought” by Lauren Wrightstone

As Honors students, we have very easy access to most of the food on campus. The Caesar Rodney and Russell dining halls are extremely close to Redding, as is Perkins and the Harrington POD. Even Pencader is less than a fifteen-minute bus ride if your tastes vary in that direction. Our dining plans make it easy to access all these different options, whether that’s through regular meals, meal exchanges, points, or Flex. 

I’m partial to the 175 meal block plan, but I know everyone has their preferences, and I wanted to figure out what they are. I interviewed a few Honors students to get the inside scoop.  Continue reading
