    The Real College Experience

    The Real College Experience

    Movies lie about school, I remember my first day at College I was bright eyed and thought that it would answer all of my problems. No. Not even close. It created more problems. College parties? Never been to one, no one even hosted parties anymore. Frats and Sororities? Those people actually do work. I worked at the school newspaper for awhile and I volunteered to cover the one Sorority and I thought “maybe I’ll catch some of that “college action” that Hollywood is talking about.” I went to the sorority meetings for three months and it was all volunteer work and investments and homework and becoming product testers. I actually fell asleep at one meeting and when I woke up I had my jacket over my body and someone had rolled up one of their sweaters that they sold and put it under my head. I went to the library once and no one was making out, they were studying. One guy was crying but he pulled himself together, it was midterms week and we all got a little cuckoo. I saw one kid take off his flip flops and run down a coffee cart that was closing up. I was in an astronomy class and one guy brought in a hot plate and made bacon. The professor was going through a presentation and all of a sudden you heard “ssssssssssssss” and it was stadium seating and we all looked to the nosebleed row and there was this little billow of smoke that went in front of the projector light. My professor was like “is there a fire?” And there was this little voice in the back that said “.....it’s controlled” and the professor just bowed his head and pinched the bridge of his nose and said “fuck it, class dismissed” and walked out.

    Finding Closure as a Student Since Lockdown Took Away Our Final Months of Uni Life

    Finding Closure as a Student Since Lockdown Took Away Our Final Months of Uni Life

    I remember the first time the word ‘coronavirus’ popped up on my twitter feed. A deadly virus had emerged on the other side of the world in a village I had never heard of. A sad and slightly scary story, but one that felt particularly distant too. For a week or two the story seemed almost lost amongst the usual bleakness of news – Brexit, Trump and devastating climate change. At this time, I, along with many others I’m sure, would never have thought it would have such a devastating impact worldwide and within our own lives. I even recall making light of the topic when a friend messaged me expressing their fear, comparing it to the film ‘Contagion’. I naively dismissed their fears.

    The College Concept and Free Learning

    The College Concept and Free Learning

    For centuries, humans have been believed in one of two opinions related to education. This essay is centered on those two differing viewpoints. If those staunchly rooted in one camp or the other could agree on a compromise, they could actually come to an accord. I believe that you will understand what I mean by this as you read on.

    The Most Embarrassing Roommate Moment In College

    The Most Embarrassing Roommate Moment In College

    I'm from Ghana, West Africa. I played tennis there and was a national champion before getting a scholarship to attend college in the USA. So before I arrived at the New Mexico Military Institute (NMMI) in the Fall of 1993, I was in the best shape of my life. At the least, that’s what I thought.

    Education in A Nutshell:  From the minor's privilege

    Education in A Nutshell: From the minor's privilege

    It was chalk and cheese with Sparta's model, which had been designed to train fiercely loyal, gallant and physically perfectly healthy warriors. Upon turning seven, boys would have been moved out to live in either schools or barracks, wherein they were exposed to sports and combat and endurance training with iron disciplines. Albeit being elite combat troops, they were, for the most part, illiterate.

    Why I Chose to Attend a Small University

    Why I Chose to Attend a Small University

    One of the most stressful decisions in my life was choosing a college. It was around the end of my junior year that I was constantly asked what college I was attending (or thinking about attending) and what I planned on studying. For a period of time, I had my sights set on the University of Michigan, mostly because my dad and older sister went there. It wasn’t until I started touring more campuses and researched more colleges that I realized what I was looking for in a college.

    A Message from A Pandemic Graduate

    A Message from A Pandemic Graduate

    Though our last semester ended totally different from how it is suppose to be, realize the fact that we made it through a pandemic and other blockades. Despite the fact that we have been stripped of major events that takes place during the last two months of school: dances, senior trips, prom; we still overcame this detrimental semester, we tried our best.
