The End (of only freshman year, calm down everyone)

May 10th, 2013 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Mariah MacKenzie '16

Yahoo! I’m finally back home in Sandwich (yes, I realize, it’s a weird name, please don’t ask me what kind of sandwich I live in, you’re not funny) and of course extremely sick. I guess that’s what happens when you don’t eat or sleep properly, if at all, for a week straight. My bad. Finals […]

April 29th, 2013 · 1 Comment · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Josephine Lippincott '16 - London, England

Alright so we last left off at the pillow fight in Trafalgar Square.  The following Monday […]

I can’t handle bingo during finals.

April 27th, 2013 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Mariah MacKenzie '16

Tonight a study group has congregated in my room for Spanish. I don’t understand what’s being said. My roommate is flapping her arms and jumping around the room, speaking in gibberish. Deena and Izabelle are talking about the potential weight of fecal matter, and its consequences on weighing one’s self. Nancy is trying to ask […]

My last few days at and around Arcadia

April 27th, 2013 · No Comments · Natalie Marshall '16

HELLO. I figured this would be a great time for a blog post, since I know I will definitely be doing nothing but studying for finals/writing papers/preparing presentations for the next week beginning in about T – 30 minutes.  All this work actually has not been too painful, though, and one way I have learned […]

Boyfriends + Philly + Spring Fling = An Amazing April.

April 21st, 2013 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Mariah MacKenzie '16

I’m going to stick with this system, she said! I’ll be awesome and blog every couple of days, she thought! Should I keep the expectations low so nobody gets disappointed next time? EXPECT THE NEXT BLOG POST TO BE IN A MILLION YEARS! Ahem. Anyway. The weekend after my family came to visit, my significant […]

Check me, keeping my word!

April 16th, 2013 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Mariah MacKenzie '16

So the week after Preview was… it was absolutely awful, to be honest. There were people problems, and family problems, and a bunch of tests (even a few midterms, lucky me) which culminated in my having a mental breakdown. Legitimately. My mother and sister wound up leaving to come to Glenside late on Friday night, […]

Scotland vs. Ireland: Rugby Style

April 16th, 2013 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Lauren Jolley '16 - Stirling, Scotland

One of the highlights of my time abroad so far was when I went to the Six Nations rugby game when Scotland played Ireland.  The largest sports game I have ever been to is some Minor League baseball games in my hometown, so when I went to this rugby game it was completely more than what […]

Go to Cuba.

April 14th, 2013 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Mariah MacKenzie '16

Well. Now that it’s almost a month later… let’s talk about Preview! (I’m a terrible person.) Going on Preview was one of the best decisions I have ever made, to be honest. I thought it would be a lot of fun and interesting to travel to yet another country in just my freshman year of […]

The Dreaded Finals Week

April 6th, 2013 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Josephine Lippincott '16 - London, England

Sorry that I haven’t updated in a while.  It’s been a crazy, busy time around here.  As of now, I am pretty much done with my first year of college.  Crazy.  It hasn’t really sunk in yet, but we’ll see when that changes.  Until then, let me relive the past week and tell all you […]
