Things To Look Forward To..

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

Even though my professors are piling on the work from now until the end of the semester, there are some specific things I’m looking forward to that keep me plugging along in this busy time.  First and foremost is going home for Easter.  While everyone knows I adore London, I did not get to spend Thanksgiving […]

Back to Reality

March 18th, 2013 · No Comments · Natalie Marshall '16

Well, I am currently sitting in my usual spot in the Stein Periodicals Room in the library trying to keep my eyes open long enough to write a few sentences for the massive amount of post-spring break work I need to do.  I can’t complain though, because I did absolutely none of this work over […]

On Friday of last week, eight FYSAE students (including myself) displayed projects about our time abroad that we had been working very hard on for the past week.  There were two students from London  and six from Stirling showcasing our overseas adventures in the castle dining room for all of the Arcadia community to come […]

On Thursday of this week, we at Arcadia University got together to do what this school does best: celebrate this diverse world in which we live.  The “Celebrating Cultures” event was hosted by Arcadia’s International Club, which I just joined this semester! There were loads of great dishes from all over the world, in addition […]

A Lesson on Determination (as Uncovered by a Non-Athlete in Arcadia’s Gym)

January 25th, 2013 · No Comments · Natalie Marshall '16

I might sound like some sort of motivational speaker here, but I discovered a significant amount about determination during the last few days.  I learned a lesson that I want to share.  It’s nothing too deep or groundbreaking, but it is definitely something I will remember for a long time. This newly-acquired wisdom is as […]

All I Want for Christmas is Good Grades

December 16th, 2012 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Natalie Marshall '16

Last week I had three gigantic finals, so I guess I need not explain what the last seven days of my life have consisted of.  Frustration, stress, a lack of sleep, and anxiety have made up my last few days here in London.  I do not know what finals are like at American universities, as this […]

One Last Trip

December 10th, 2012 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Natalie Marshall '16

Imagine the most “Christmassy” city you’ve ever seen and then multiply that Christmas spirit by about three thousand (or more). That is the city of Bruges, Belgium!  If Santa doesn’t live in the North Pole, I’m more than positive he lives in Bruges, or at least he must have a vacation home there.   Bruges […]

Three Myths about London Debunked

December 5th, 2012 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Natalie Marshall '16

Foolish is the traveler who takes advice about London from someone who has spent a week or less here. It’s like taking scuba diving lessons from someone who swam to the bottom of a 10-foot swimming pool once. There are a lot of pseudo London experts out there, and here are the things they get wrong. […]

Writers are the most interesting of people to talk to; I have learned over the past few weeks that when the writer speaks, my ear is drawn to the sound like a magnet!  Writers are just so imaginative, inquisitive, creative, passionate, and most of all, I reckon they are the QUIRKIEST people on the planet!  I […]

Guest speaker in Writing London

November 24th, 2012 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Natalie Marshall '16

I always thought city life was too loud, hectic, and rushed for me.  I believed that I belonged amidst the rural, the pastoral, the peaceful, the bucolic.  However, London has torn my idea of the “bucolic” to shreds; the metropolitan is the place to be.  I belong in the lively, the diverse, the culturally-rich, the […]
