Senioritis- Where did the time go?

They say that time seems to speed up as you go from freshmen year to senior year of high school. It's almost as if you were on a roller coaster that slowly inches its way to the top. Then all of a sudden, it's senior year and you race through…

Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

            When I first started college, I began to feel the weight of a college student.

As my workload quickly increased, I began to feel as if I was not capable…

College Acceptance

When I first started applying to school, I never had a dream school or any particular career I was heading for. I did know that I wanted to attend college and become the first in my family to attend college. I started applying to a lot of different school. Some…

Leaving and Returning Home: Was It Easy?

Work-Study: A Little Networking and A Lot of Confidence

Leaving Home

Leaving home my first year definitely wasn’t easy. Before college, I had only been away from home for maybe a few weeks, a month tops. Dartmouth is only 2 hours away from Lynn, MA (where I grew up), and though in comparison to some of my friends here who were…
