Hey y’all! My name is Érika Hernández, and I am a sophomore here at Lafayette College. Just to give you all a little more information about myself, I come from a big family–I have eight cousins (whom I consider my brothers and sisters) and two younger siblings. We grew up under the same roof so going […]

After a hazy first week of classes, I spent most of this weekend at a Landis staff retreat preparing for the upcoming year; and with that, my semester officially began. I’ve worked with the Landis Center ever since my freshman year, both as an America Reads tutor and as a program coordinator. During this retreat, […]

  This blog post is one of gratitude to all the great people I worked with over the summer. As a full-time tour guide, it was an experience that was both professionally insightful as well as a good learning opportunity to work for a college admissions office. Indeed it was my co-workers who really set […]

After one 16-hour flight, a missing contact lens, and a whole lot of turbulence, we finally arrived in the mother land! Once we finally arrived in Chengdu, China, I couldn’t help but feel a strong sense of accomplishment. That had to be the longest flight ever, considering I had to spend 13 of the 16 […]

Last week marked the end of another hectic summer teaching for the Breakthrough Collaborative. Less than two days afterward, I was making the familiar trek up along the Delaware River toward Lafayette to help out with Orientation Week and to begin my final year of college. As you can imagine, I haven’t had much time […]

Included are the loud but entertaining thunderstorms, the radiant sunshine of the day, and the warm evenings where outside is the only place to be. Pictured above is a rainbow I saw while driving through […]

Vanissa and I went to an African dance festival a few days before we left New Jersey. The African festival was in Brooklyn, New York. I was so excited for the whole day. The festival reminded me of a dance performance I had watched at Lafayette. The dancing talents of the African performers impressed me. When […]

A July Afternoon

posted in Natalie Zhang

Normally (school time=2/3 of the year), I’m a hard-working person. However, during the break, all my energy is gone. The two things I enjoy the most are drinking tea with friends and baking. Lying in the couch for several hours, I feel like I’m becoming one part of the couch.   If I didn’t hear […]
