Top Ten Tips for Surviving Your First Year of College

My Top Ten Tips for Surviving Your First Year of College (in no particular order)   1. Drink orange juice Germs spread like wildfire around a college campus! After being here for about two weeks, I started to get sick. I was so nervous—being sick without my mom there to take care of me? Now that’s scary. But my mom told me to drink orange juice. So I did. I began drinking a glass of orange juice with every meal, and it worked! I instantly felt better! And I have been relatively healthy throughout all of my first year! 2. […]

Fabulous Tour Guides

If you’ve ever been to Bucknell for a campus tour, you’ve met one of Admissions’ fabulous tour guides. I happen to be one of them! I had a ton of fun this past semester giving tours, meeting lots of prospective students and their families, and talking about how much I love Bucknell! I always tell my tour groups to check out my blog, so I figured I should give a little shout out to all of them! The truth is, I have had some of the best families on my tours this semester. I wish them all the best of […]

Engineers for Sustainable Development

When I first came to Bucknell, one of my goals for the year was to establish an Engineers Without Borders program here on campus. I spoke with the Engineering Dean and a few professors and I was so excited to get started. After being on campus for a little bit, I got in contact with a senior, Kevin Matthews, who was trying to start a similar program, just like I was. Long story short, with the help from Kevin, a few professors, other students, and my partner in crime—Maddie Greenlee—we are now an official club on campus! We decided to […]

Studying Made Social

With three papers, three projects, and three final exams, I’ve been pretty busy lately. I’ve spent a lot of my free time in the library or some other miscellaneous study space. (I can’t tell you exactly where those are—someone might steal my spot!) Fortunately, I’m not the only person with a lot to do. One of the great things about college is that you live with people who take the same classes as you. This means you never have to study alone. For instance, I had my geology final on Thursday. The tough thing about studying for geology is that […]

Scholarship Day

I have less than a week left of my freshman year! It’s mind-boggling and scary that it went by so quickly. I have so much more to tell you before I leave, though! My solution: write one blog post for each of my remaining days. Do you think I can do it? I think so. Or at least, I hope! Here it goes… Like many students at Bucknell, I am a scholarship recipient. Last Saturday, I had the amazing opportunity to actually meet my benefactor. Students and generous donors gathered in Sojka Pavilion on Saturday to enjoy an afternoon of […]

Finals week :/

Here we go, finals week! Today is Wednesday, Reading Day here at Bucknell University, when all students have the entire day off to prepare for exams that start tomorrow morning! Thankfully, none of my finals start until Monday, so I have plenty of time to do work! I’ve been in the library since about 9am, and haven’t left except for lunch (it’s now 2:24pm!). But it’s been a good morning. I finished and turned in my portfolio for my “Working with Writers” class, and I’ve done lots of planning for my Anthropology take-home final! Finals week is usually pretty cool […]

There’s no place like hope…

On this Sunday afternoon, I’m embarrassed to say that I have only been up for less than three hours! BUT, I’m not embarrassed to say why! Yesterday, beginning at 5pm, you could find me in the field house along with hundreds of other people for the 12-hour-long Bucknell branch of Relay for Life! As a part of Team CHOICE, I participated in this awesome event, where groups from all over campus gathered together to walk, to fund raise, and to build up the fight against cancer. The theme was The Wizard of Oz, and the field house was decorated from […]

Spring Break and House Party!

Spring Break was about a week long. I was asleep for half of it. Normally I get annoyed when I sleep past noon, but this time it was necessary. Being at home was all I needed. I got to eat home cooked meals, have fun in the city, and most importantly, SHOP! I spent sometime in Georgetown, where the infamous Georgetown Cupcake has a shop. I actually waited in line for a cupcake… To be honest, my mother’s cupcakes are 10 times better. My first weekend back was House Party Weekend. It was so much fun, there was music blasting, […]

Information security lecture by a former FBI special agent

On Monday, March 21, 2011, our first day of class after the spring break, I attended a great lecture in MGMT 358 class by Mr. Edward Gibson. The first impression for me was that Mr. Gibson stand in front of the entrance of the class room, shaking hands and sending his business cards to everyone who came in. In addition, he asked everyone’s name. When I told him my English name, he even wanted to know my real name in Chinese. This made me feel respected, and I admire his professionalism and personality. The most interesting part is was his […]

What do you want to do before you die?

A few days before leaving for Spring Break, Bucknell was visited by four influential, optimistic, world-changing, entertaining friends—Ben, Dave, Duncan, and Jonnie—also known as the stars of MTV’s The Buried Life. If you’ve never seen the show, you’re missing out. The show follows these friends across the country as they ask themselves and others, “What do you want to do before you die?” We’ve watched them sneak into a party at the Playboy Mansion (#6 on their list), ask out the girl of their dreams (#59), and Streak a Stadium and [try to] get away with it (#50). In addition […]
