Ready, Get Set …Sumo!

We get 6 weeks off for winter break – but it goes by in a flash when you spend most of it in a country 6,735 miles away. As I sit here on the couch of my friend’s off campus apartment while cheering on the New York Giants and eating honey bbq wings, random thoughts […]

Bonjour Paris!

tagged with , , , ,

Packing my life into 2 rather large suitcases was one of the most difficult tasks I’ve ever faced. My spring semester Paris Internship Program just started and it has already been an experience I could never forget. I was immersed into the French culture before even stepping foot into the country thanks to the talkative […]

‘Tis the Season (Basketball Season!)

    There are many signs that tell you the holidays are coming up, like seeing Santa Claus at the mall, smelling homemade cookies, or tuning into the radio and realizing it’s all Christmas music.  Any Lafayette student knows that this is the time of year when upper Farinon is decorated with paper snowflakes, and everyone’s […]

Sunday is my favorite day of the week. It’s the day I wake up to a text message at around 10:30am from my friend Morgan, asking if I’m up. We always go eat brunch with a few friends at a café in downtown Easton called The Quadrant. We’ve been there so many times that the […]

LAFAYETTE-LEHIGH 2010

The weekend we’ve ALL been waiting for is finally here! Tomorrow marks the 146th game between Lafayette and Lehigh, the most-played football matchup in history. Before I became a student at Lafayette, I didn’t get why the two schools didn’t get along. Sure, Lehigh’s school colors are ugly and the campus is basically built on […]

A Toast to Good Friends

As I’ve mentioned before, I love to keep busy. If I’m not sleeping in my room in Pi Phi, I’m in class. If I’m not in class, I’m doing homework in the reading room of Skillman library. If I’m not there, I’m at practice, club meetings, tutoring, gymnastics, etc. And now, all this running around […]

I Donated Blood for All the Little Reasons

Whatever your reason for giving blood, going to donate can always be a gratifying experience. I found out for myself that I can find true inspiration in others when I least expect it. Anybody could’ve walked up to the Marlo Room in Farinon between 9am and 5pm today, for the semi-annual Lafayette College sponsored Miller-Keystone […]

An Interview with…the Governor?!

posted in Kurumi Fukushima

tagged with , , , ,

For my past internships, I’ve had the chance to attend news conferences and log countless number of tapes to pick out sound clips for the newscasts. Because I was in Harrisburg, some of these tapes were of the governor and other politicians. I would write about the news conference and what they announced. This summer, […]

“The Vibe”

posted in Kurumi Fukushima

tagged with , , ,

Picking classes can be both exciting and stressful for any Lafayette College student. You have to pick them based on several things including the requirements for your major, the professor teaching the course, class time (NO 8AMs!), and whether or not the topic interests you. Last semester, the one class I knew I wanted to […]

From Sorority Initiation to the Football Game…

I love having a busy schedule. My roommate makes fun of me because I write out my daily schedule in my room on my little dry-erase board every day. It can get overwhelming at times, but generally having places to be and things to do makes me a productive student. This weekend mainly consists of […]
