Its like a getaway from the stress of college (my classes are on different campuses). So I compiled several pictures of Cook/Douglass. Cook/Douglass is beautiful. … More A Day in My Life: Living on Cook Douglass
Earlier today I was on the Rutgers c/o 2020 Facebook page, and someone posted a video that had a bar graph on what group assignments taught people.

If you read my blogs consistently, you’d notice I blog twice every month. However, I lost my streak in March (sad face). This semester was definitely more stressful than the first.

I remember growing up, I never even entertained the thought about going to Rutgers. I remember thinking that Rutgers must be an easy school because it is so close.

Like an anticipated reward for making it through the first half of the spring semester, students embrace Spring Break with great relief and visions of relaxation in mind (or in some cases, visions of vacation in mind).

Also, I think I’ll definitely be okay without dining hall food for a few days. … More Reasons Why March is One of the Best Months
