Meaningful Saturday

posted in Kofi Boateng

  Once upon a time, there was a queen bee who lived in a hive of familiar bees, full of sweet, sweet honey flowing here and there…seemingly never ending. But one day, things turned for the worst. All of the honey that was produced was taken away by unwelcome strangers. Frightened by what might become […]

Spring Break….On Campus

posted in Kofi Boateng

Yes, I spent the whole week here on campus while others went to Florida and had fun. I did enjoy having time to catch up on important things. Sleep. That’s what I did for 12 hours a day, on most days, along with eat, work out, give tours, and chemistry for the remaining time I […]

1 Down, 1 To Go

posted in Kofi Boateng

Spring Break is right around the corner. Today sure felt like the early beginnings of spring, plus the occasional cold wind gusts. As I always say, things seem to be going so fast. I’m halfway to being a JUNIOR in college; I’ve definitely come a long way from my first year. This week has not […]

It’s always moving whenever I experience something as invigorating as Posse Plus Retreats. This is my second one, yet I learned so much. This year’s topic was on social movements in the past, present, and what will come of the future. At first, I thought that this retreat might not be as good as last […]

New Semester….New Habits

posted in Kofi Boateng

It has been a while since I have written a blog. I am actually a bit lost for words, but I guess I’ll just start with my experience of this week and the semester thus far. It’s kind of shocking to know that I am in my second semester already. Realizing that in a couple […]

Borders-and-Beyond (Day One)

posted in Kofi Boateng

Today is the second day of this ASB service trip. Day one was very exhausting. Who would have thought that transitioning from airplane to airplane one right after the other could be so tiresome? Nevertheless, we didn’t let that get to us. So far, I must admit that being a Team Leader is much tougher […]

A Thankful Break

posted in Kofi Boateng

Being back on campus feels like an double-edged sword. Having gone home for the break was the best feeling ever. As an African family, we normally don’t celebrate Thanksgiving to the extent that most Americans would. Being that we do live in a place that a lot of people do celebrate this holiday, my family […]

Movie Night, Lafayette-Lehigh and…Two More Days Till Break

posted in Kofi Boateng

Our 149th rivalry game and we are champions. Although I did not go to the game, I felt its enduring impact on the campus community, especially on my floor. Being that I have a resident who is a football player, everyone in Ruef felt the need to visit the floor and make a ruckus at […]

CHAS Black and Latino Male Conference

posted in Kofi Boateng

I realized that I had not posted before the week ended. For good reasons, I decided to wait and reflect on an important event I attended this past Sunday. Friday through Sunday was the annual CHAS Black and Latino Male Conference, a powerful event wherein males of color were invited to talk about issues that […]

Less than a month left until the end of classes, yet everything still feels even more daunting, which is reasonably so. Thankfully, next semester is right around the corner. With the change of plans for the future comes with a change of decisions with classes. A long-held realization that this semester’s classes do not reflect […]
