Freshman Travels

Eight months ago I was scared out of my mind—I was leaving everything and everyone I had ever known, behind me. What I didn’t know was that I was going to be leaving an old version of myself behind as well, and that one of the biggest changes I was going to experience would be […]

Death or Success from GFOB?

Throughout freshmen year the most commonly used phrase is, “death by GFOB,” but I couldn’t fully understand why everyone always said this until this semester, when I experienced it myself. GFOB is one of the required courses here at Bryant and it is one of the greatest opportunities students have to be able learn, and […]

More than just a club

I have been a part of DECA since my junior year of high school, yet it never ceases to impact me in a new way every time I participate in one of its events. This past week Bryant DECA traveled down to the beautiful city, Washington D.C., to attend the International Career Development Conference (ICDC) […]

REDay Success

I never thought that when I joined my Statistics class this semester that it would leave a lasting impression on me, in more ways than one. My professor, Nancy Bealusio, asked us during the second week of class whether some of us would be interested in volunteering our time for her REDay project. As a […]

Chronically Sick and Successful

My parents didn’t want me to leave the bubble of safety they had created for me in Middletown, CT. They had seen me go through it all ever since my diagnosis of Crohn’s Disease at the age of ten. So the thought of me going off into a new environment that is filled with triggers […]

The Scoop on being a Working College Student

College is a continuous balancing act, you have to know how to focus on the most important stuff first while still finding the time for everything else. Thankfully for me I learned really good time management skills in high school. Therefore college was not too much of a shock to me when I first started. […]

To DECA and Beyond

Everyone always told me that one of the most important things to do when you are a freshman in college, is to get involved. But that can seem scary when you are in a new environment and you still do not know many people—but for me, branching out and doing the things I love to […]

The IDEA Program

The IDEA Program is something that all freshmen have to partake in once they come back from their winter break. During my first semester there were many rumors circulating around over what actually happens during this 72 hour program, and there were mixed reviews on it. But I noticed that my class was going into […]

Winter Wonderland

  Everyone has a habit of getting caught up in the daily hustle and bustle of life and we sometimes forget to appreciate everything that goes into it. I am definitely guilty of doing this, and I have only become guiltier of doing this since I started college. College has a way of sweeping you […]
