These past few weeks at Denison University marked major transitions, some bigger than wanted. Courses, majors, minors, clubs, music, fitness, friendships, faith and most importantly, personal values and beliefs were exploited and brought into the light.
When I moved out for college, I bought my mom the book "Your Nest Isn’t Empty, It Just Has More Closet Space."
The 21st Century Scholars program aims to help low-income, at-risk children get a college education so they can break the cycle of poverty. That's easier said than done.
It’s November and time for some “big fish” seniors to seek a bigger pond. As many of us anticipate college, an uncertain and stressful atmosphere lingers in school hallways and classrooms. Students drill one another with “Where are you applying?” and “Really? I’ve never pinned you down for t…
I am in my first semester as a college junior, living abroad for the second time, and living in Rome, Italy, for the fourth of six non-consecutive months.

With one fell swoop of a tassel, another class of young men and women enter into not only the rest of their lives, but also the beginning of a great journey. No, not college graduates, but rather high school graduates. A time full of blossoming ambition, the seeds of success cultivated for s…
The taste of freedom is an alluring mix of mostly sweet combined with hints of cautioned irresponsibility. This universal rite of passage for all teenagers entering into the world of adulthood is inevitable and, for a large majority, comes when our adorably loving, but increasingly too invol…
