Democracy Awakening

I’ve been meaning to write about this on my blog since I got back twelve days ago, but with the end of semester rush to get work done and see friends before we all leave for the summer, I haven’t found the time. I did write about my experience in an opinion piece for the

We Don’t know, What We Don’t Know

“You don’t know what you don’t know.” That’s what my Dad told me at one point growing up. Probably when I was being a know it all teenager, but I am sure that he has had cause to say it more than once. The truth of the statement is undeniable by design, its like saying

Mississippi Burning

I’m back at it again with another opinion piece in our school newspaper, The Campus. This week, I wrote about the horrifying new law in Mississippi that is oppressive of LGBTQ+ rights and is a human rights violation in itself. It was published on Friday, which is when The Campus comes out every week. This

North Carolina and Trans Rights

This past Friday, I had my first opinion piece published in The Campus, our school newspaper. I was thrilled! It is about the recent legislation in North Carolina that has celebrities canceling concerts, major companies refusing to do business there, and generally receiving big heaping pile of well-deserved backlash. What’s the law about, you say?

Spring Break Adventures! (Part One: Allegheny to Rochester)

So, the entire week before spring break, each of my professors went around the room and asked each of us if we had any plans for the week. Some people were headed to Myrtle Beach, some were heading home, there was even someone in my Junior Seminar who was headed to Vegas for the week.

Gator Day! (Squad Takes Pittsburgh)

So, instead of attending Gator Day events, I had to make the trip down to Pittsburgh to get my phone fixed after shattering its screen this weekend. That’s one of the downsides of living in Meadville, to be honest; the city’s kind of disconnected from the rest of the world. One of the nearest apple

I’m not dead! And also: Gator Day!

Hey guys! I’ve returned from my blogger slumber! Essentially what happened was that over spring break I spent a lot of time in a car (you’ll get a post about that soon… possibly today?), which means no wifi, which means no blogs. Anything after that was just a work overload and a result of not

Spring Break

For spring break I travelled with a friend to visit our other friend in New Jersey who graduated last year. We spent a few days hanging out with her and just lounging around her house before spending three days in New York City. We caught the train in every day which was perfectly fine by me

Making connections

Something I love about Allegheny is the number of opportunities that this college offers you; in particular the number of people you get to meet and the incredible opportunities to form connections and sometimes even friendships. One example of this was the “Welcome the Stranger” journalism conference that Allegheny hosted a few weeks back. Students

International Wing Open House

This was a super cool event we hosted in the International building the weekend before Spring break. It was run by the Phi Sigma Iota the language honors society. Each house was allocated a certain budget and we had to provide some traditional food and an activity for people to do. The food from all
