Stories of Studying Abroad

Words byKara Fagan, Delaney Rea & Kelsey Tidball | Photo by Jonathan Roensch The Genius of Study Abroad I went on this faculty-led study abroad trip this past summer and it was, hands down, one of the best decisions I have ever made. My trip took me to Dublin, Oxford, London and Paris. We were in each city for about a week and were able to see the sights, hang out in the city and explore the historical and literary roots of each culture. This was the perfect study abroad trip for me, a journalism and theater student who...

Realistic Resolutions for the College Student

Words by Skyla Patton | Photo by Trevor Meyer We’ve all heard the typical New Year’s resolutions—and we’ve all seen their outcome, too. The first week of January can be borderline chaos for the local gyms, health food stores and jogging paths. Many of us know from learning the hard way that these resolutions aren’t always as easy to keep as expected. After all, just keeping track of one pencil over the course of a term can be a challenge at times. Check out these ten resolutions for college students that you’ll actually be able to keep in 2018. 1. Study at least 24 hours before the actual exam Now bear with us—this may sound ludicrous but it will actually really help, we promise!

Explore the EMU upper levels for hidden study spots or check out the atriums in Allen and Lillis for a quiet, scenic location. 2.
