I thought I was going to go work for different political organizations collecting data and interpreting them. However, a lot of things have changed since my freshman year — I … Continue reading Getting Involved Outside of Your Major!

And finally, … Continue reading Think Positive, Be Positive: Rutgers Cancellations

Recently I’ve been really into listening to podcasts! One of my favorites, recommended to me by my sister, is The Two Princes by Gimlet! I love this podcast for so many reasons but one is its format. The podcast is told more like a fictional TV show, where listeners can imagine a separate universe filled with magic and chaos. It isn’t like typical podcasts I … Continue reading Podcast Recommendation: The Two Princes!
Since we are approaching Valentine’s day, I thought that no book review would be more appropriate to write than one about the work of C.S. Lewis “The Four Loves”. My favorite author here contemplates the essence of love, including its four different forms: affection, friendship, Passion, and Charity. A Christian Writer, he encourages his readers to open themselves to … Continue reading Why find one true love if there is actually four? Happy Valentine’s!
It’s hard to believe that my four years at Rutgers are coming to a close this semester. I feel like I should still be figuring out the bus system and finding new clubs to join.

In spirit of the spring semester, take a look at last year’s Senior Speaker Remarks. Check out Elizabeth’s incredible speech below, delivered Spring 2019!
