This weekend is the Lafayette College Equestrian Team’s first horseshow for the spring season. We have spent the past few weeks at the barn training and practicing before the spring horseshows get underway. Horseback riding and competing on the team for Lafayette through the Intercollegiate Horseshow Association (IHSA) has been an incredible and unique experience, and […]

This past weekend, I had the amazing opportunity to visit Morocco.  The trip began as I rushed to the train station after finishing a Dynamics exam.  I was a little worried about time, but I ended up finishing the exam a little early and everything was fine.  We took a 5.5 hour train to Algeciras, […]

This semester, Lafayette’s engineering program is enabling me to spend the subsequent four months studying abroad in Bremen, Germany. I have been asked by Lafayette to relay analyses of my experiences back to current and prospective students by means of this blog. I consider this quite a privilege and I will put my best foot […]

Just Wanna Dance the Night Away: Moroccan Nights

All work and no play makes Rob a dull boy. After a productive, but long, week of classes, meetings, and applications, I have to unwind a little. Usually I’ll just hang out with my friends on campus, but two Fridays ago (February 13th), I decided to class it up a bit and go to the […]

Asalam Alekuem everyone! I started my internship two weeks ago and it has been a blessing to work for a non-profit organization called Culture d’Enfance. It was started by a few great women and men who felt the need for the children of Senegal to have access to hobbies and cultural experiences. The main purpose […]

This post will be a continuation of the last one.  Just to refresh your memories, I’m studying in Madrid, Spain, with 20 other friends from Lafayette and Professor Smith, who is a Mechanical Engineering professor at Lafayette. Two weeks ago, Professor Smith took us to a dinner and flamenco show.  The dinner consisted of what […]

Last week, Bailey Health Center estimated that about 12% of Lafayette students have been diagnosed with the flu. It seems that the majority of my residence hall has some type of illness except for me. In all seriousness though, they might as well rename Kamine, Baileys because nearly every day the plague claims another victim; […]

Board Games

posted in Alix Battison

An activity my friends and I take very seriously is playing board games. We play Monopoly, Life, Sorry, Parcheesi, and even Lehigh Valley-opoly (a parody of monopoly with properties such as ‘The Crayola Experience’ and ‘Dorney Park’, and where you “use your Giant BonusCard” instead of taking a card from community chest). We have discovered […]

I’ve been here in Madrid, Spain for about five weeks now.  It doesn’t really feel like it’s been that long, but when I think back to that first day, it does seem like ages ago.  I guess time does fly when you’re having fun.  Anyway, five weeks is plenty of time for more than a […]

Through the Mountains

When I bring friends home to the mountains I give them what I have coined as “the talk” before their arrival. AKA Intro to the Poconos, 101 Guide to a Rural Community, FYI: The Land of No Sidewalks Where the Animals Roam. It is usually met with giggles, a snort or a shrug and one […]
