WowW... what a start to summer it has been. first off, the football team traveled to Canada and recorded a 35-1 victory over Vanier college out of Montreal. It was a blast going up there and spending some time out with the guys after getting the WIN!! As soon as I got back from Canada, I decided to go to visit a teammate of mine who's from NJ. We spent a day or two at the beach and after that, did some turkey hunting. Yeah I know, who would think you could hunt turkeys in Jersey?!?!... After…Continue

My brother is too. He'll be a senior this year, so he'll start getting ready for applications this Summer. He's such a soccer star. I'm proud of him, but I'm trying to get him to choose a school for more than the soccer program. He needs to find a school that fits him, and not just his soccer skills. So, in light of his search, I've a bit of advice if you are where he is:

All medical school students take the MCAT prior to applying to medical school. It is similar to the SAT/ACTs for undergraduate students, except it usually carries more weight than those tests do in the admission process. I came across this article a few weeks ago and it made me smile: Revamping MCAT and Pre-Med…Continue

It is officially Summer Time!! Flip flops, shorts, beaches, BBQs the list goes on and on! after the hectic final couple weeks of Albright last semester I'm sure all Albrightians are extremely happy to be home amongst their friends and family to enjoy their summer! Its weird to think that our graduating seniors will not be returning with us at the start of the fall semester, graduation was a real tear jerker, but goodbyes are never permanent, I know we will be seeing our lovely seniors again…Continue

So it finally happened.... they kicked me out. Well they really didn't kick me out.. I just happened to graduate, which apparently is the goal of going to college in the first place. Who knew? But before I start to cry again (which I have been doing for about 4 days now) I am going to tell you all about the top 10 things I am going to miss about Albright.
10.) Crazy Residence Halls
So I know most people dread…Continue
So, it is over and done. I am an official Albright College graduate. *dramatic tears*
As bittersweet as this moment is, I have to say that I am grateful to have had a pleasant four years of growth, in all aspects of life, at Albright. I was granted the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life, and learned SO much about myself. I now understand why people always say that college will be some of the best years of your life.
I don't want to make…Continue

Well I just got home from Las Vegas and even though its 11:30 here im still on their time which is 8:30 so im not even that tired! it was such a fun trip and seeing somewhere new is always so interesting. It was funny though cause I walked the strip with my brother on the first day and I have such a mind set about the business world and advertising and marketing strategies so that was so cool to see how each different hotel differentiates themselves from each other and how they bring people…Continue

Finally in my homely abode in Georgia, and nothing is better than sleeping in 'til the afternoon and chilling out for the remainder of the day. For two weeks, I shall exert the maximum amount of catchin' some southern sunshine and momma Trujillo's home cooking. What else do I have planned for the summer? Well, at some point (June 12th to be exact), round 2 of Summer Conferences will occupy my summer time. It was a good work…Continue
So, my junior year is all done!
And you know what, I did pretty well.
BUT I'M SO HAPPY THAT IT'S SUMMER!!!
After relaxing for the past week...=)...it's time for me to start applying for jobs and such!
As much as I look forward to this process, nothing hurts more than getting a flat out no (if they're nice, some people just don't call back).
When i'm not applying for jobs, I just like to enjoy the weather and hang out with my best friend, whom I…Continue

This summer I am headed to the Grand Teton National Park to work as a waiter in the Jackson Lake Lodge and play in the mountains. Home is in Boyertown, PA, but while I am free, I am acting like it.
I found the Grand Tetons last summer while I was riding my bicycle across the United States (check out www.ridemarale.blogspot.com for pictures and stories). I met a couple friends while there and had a great time. This is one of the…Continue
Alright, so, I've been home for exactly a week now. It's such a great feeling. But, no worries, I've kept busy! I have a few jobs lined up for Summer, and I just got back from visiting Washington, D.C. for the first time yesterday. I had a blast! A friend of mine took my picture by the Vietnam Memorial (see profile picture) without me knowing. I was taken to the Natural History and Air and Space Museums, to a few of the monuments, and to a couple of the memorials. I already want to go…Continue
Earlier this week cars lined up around the residence halls packing instead of unpacking their rooms. It is the exact opposite of the euphoria of move in day. The rainy and overcast weather with continual ominous skies is a fitting backdrop for some of my least favorite days on campus. Albright feels like the shell of itself when the students back up and leave for the summer.
Campus will certainly come back to life during Sunday’s graduation. And it is only 97 days until MOVE-IN…Continue

So finals are FINALLY over (for me they were done Friday) and this past week has been spectacular. I am officially a Senior! So far I have two B's and an A, so I'm waiting on two more classes. Other than that here's what's been going on:
So I got accepted into the study abroad program for
from July 2nd-July 30th (it's a good thing, too, since…Continue

So, today has been pretty hectic. I had both my calc and chem finals and now I have to study for spanish. But, hey, I'm almost done my sophomore year! It's really sad to see everyone leaving to go home for the summer. Most of the girls in my suite left and it's so quiet. I thought I would appreciate the silence, but now that the noise is gone I just want it back!
Heard some good news last week though! Last Monday I found out that I won Vice President…Continue

May 1 is ‘the day’ in college admission. Almost all colleges and universities know it as the candidate reply date, the deadline for students to decide where they are enrolling. Many students make their decisions well before the deadline; however, for hundreds-of-thousands of students the week leading up to May 1 is one of stress, indecision, and anxiety. It is no different for those working in college admission. Offices anxiously await the daily mail to see how many deposits were…Continue
