Final Thoughts

Here it is. The blog post I’ve been eluding to all year long. After three years of writing about my life at Bryant, this chapter of my life comes to a close as soon as I type my signature for the last time. I am going to describe this very moment in great detail. Currently, […]

Intercultural Center Banquet

We’re at the point in the year where a million banquets are hosted, people get recognized for their hard work, and the Bryant community is collectively stuffed with delicious (free) food. One of my favorite events is the Intercultural Center (ICC) Banquet. Here, people involved in various aspects across the PwC Center for Diversity and […]

Sigma Tau Delta International English Honors Society

I have always had a passion for reading and writing (if you’ve read some of my previous blog posts – you’ll know). Building a network of like-minded people for myself has been important. I found this in the Sigma Tau Delta International English Honors Society, an organization I was honored to be inducted into today. […]

Thank you, Bryant.

The number of blog posts I have left is dwindling. I graduate in 40 days! I’ve been experiencing a lot of lasts lately and it’s got me feeling a lot of emotions. Mostly, I am feeling overwhelmingly grateful for a lot of things. So here is a list of people, places and things I would […]

Reading in College

One thing I have consistently heard during my time at Bryant is, “I wish I had time to read more.” Friends have said it, classmates, sorority sisters…everyone seems to wish they had more time to read. Of course, we have to do plenty of reading for our classes. There are many textbooks we are assigned […]

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Comes to Bryant

As I’ve written about before, I am the Co-Chair for the Student Arts and Speakers Series. All year, we have brought arts and culture to Bryant. We had our last speaker of the semester last week, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. He spoke boldly about climate change and the drastic need to do something about it […]

Ladies’ Night at Bryant

I had the privilege of hosting three prospective students who are considering coming to Bryant next year. They stayed at my townhouse at night, but during the day experienced a full day of activities simulating what it’s like to be a Bryant University student. Being a Student Ambassador has always been a wonderful way to […]

Michael Sam at Bryant

A couple weeks ago, I coordinated a very special event for the Student Arts and Speakers Series committee under the Student Programming Board (say that five times fast…). We had Michael Sam, the NFL’s first openly gay player, speak to the Bryant community about his experiences. My co-chair, Amreen (pictured above), and I got to […]

A Bryant Success Story

Create your path. Expand your world. Achieve your success. As you can see, this is a trademark Bryant phrase. It can be seen on our marketing materials and written all across campus. It’s a powerful statement that promises a lot. Four years ago when I was searching for the right school, I heard that and […]

The Vagina Monologues

Happy Women’s HERstory Month! The Alliance for Women’s Awareness recently performed “The Vagina Monologues,” a play based on conversations the writer had with real women about their lives. I participated in this event because, if I’m being honest, I was too nervous to do it any of the years before and felt an obligation to […]
