  Hofstra students are almost one full month into the semester. So much has happened over the last few weeks that I feel as if I have been in this month for three years. It is crazy to me that I experienced my first day of senior year just a few weeks ago and the… Continue reading Lessons From my First Week of Senior Year

Week Six of Classes

Week six of classes turned out to be enjoyable, especially since I was powered by my strong surge of happiness I received from the previous weekend. Tuesday was special because the weather warmed up and it turned out to be a fantastic beach day. Plus, Ben & Jerry’s was hosting its annual free cone day,… Continue reading Week Six of Classes

Fall Concert Series: Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood has the most effortless voice in the world. You won't catch me listening to country music very often, but Carrie is an exception to all the laws of the universe. Honestly, she might not even be human; she is more like an angel. I recall my nine-year-old self watching Carrie on American Idol and rooting… Continue reading Fall Concert Series: Carrie Underwood

Fall Concert Series: Fetty Wap

I still can’t believe Hofstra University hired Fetty Wap to perform for its annual Fall Fest. Fall Fest weekend is a weekend for family, friends and alumni to gather together and celebrate. Hofstra packs Saturday and Sunday with sporting events, tours, talks on special topics and more for all visitors. The main event is the actual… Continue reading Fall Concert Series: Fetty Wap

Fall Concert Series: Alessia Cara

I drove four hours through a rainy night to see a pop concert, and it was well worth it. I wanted to see Alessia Cara in concert as soon as I heard her song, “Here.” I totally related to her experience in the song: being at a party, but wishing she were somewhere else spending… Continue reading Fall Concert Series: Alessia Cara

Hofstra University Hosts the Presidential Debate: Some Seriously Unserious Student Politics

The presidential debate brought some serious politics to Hofstra’s campus. Students took full advantage of the opportunity to express their views, as exemplified by the following photos. Krusty Krab is Unfair! Probably the most popular sign spotted on campus, this sign is taken directly from a scene in Nickelodeon's Spongebob Squarepants. It's too bad Clinton nor Trump touched upon… Continue reading Hofstra University Hosts the Presidential Debate: Some Seriously Unserious Student Politics

Hofstra University Hosts the Presidential Debate: Perspective of a Student Volunteer

Hofstra University made it a priority to get students as involved in the first presidential debate as possible. For days leading up to the event and after, volunteer students worked around the clock to make sure the night ran smoothly and was well documented.

Hofstra University Hosts the Presidential Debate: Campus on Debate Day

September 26, 2016 is a day that will be marked in history forever: it was the first debate of the 2016 elections between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. This day hits home for me because my school, Hofstra University, hosted it. If that is not historical enough, Hofstra is now the first university to ever… Continue reading Hofstra University Hosts the Presidential Debate: Campus on Debate Day

Hofstra University Hosts the Presidential Debate: First Thoughts

It’s not often someone can say her school hosted a presidential debate. It’s even less likely that someone can say she volunteered and worked behind the scenes at a presidential debate. Well, I am lucky enough to say both are true. In the spring of 2016 Hofstra University learned it would be an alternate to… Continue reading Hofstra University Hosts the Presidential Debate: First Thoughts
