My nursing experience is ongoing. On Thursday, March 5th the Diecke Center for Nursing and Health Sciences welcomed, me and the nursing class of 2017, in a ceremony. The class of 2017 was dressed spectacularly while the classes of 2015 and 2016 sat in the rows behind. As effective as the ceremony was, this is just one aspect of my early experiences my nursing education. I am pleased with the simulation lab located in the lower level of Elmhurst Memorial Hospital….

I think everyone in college should have an abroad experience because it’s just time. If you’ve ever considered how to develop as adult, having a study away experience is one way to explore the rest of the world. I wanted to look back in my college years and feel like I have gone somewhere else, abroad, other than work-and-study…. Read More from In the Shoes of Ralph De la Cruz

Well I’m still deathly afraid, but I’ll get over it I suppose. This is my last J-Term and it’s bittersweet; especially since it wasn’t really anticipated….

Turkey day is around the corner and it’s also FINALS SEASON OH MY GOD SOMEONE PLEASE HELP. This is the best and arguably the worst time of the year. Fortunately, I only have 2 cumulative finals and 1 paper, while the rest are just tests that count as finals.

One thing that I love about Greek life is that all of the different sororities and fraternities on campus are able to come together as one, and help raise money for their specific philanthropy in such fun, unique, and different ways. I personally am a member of Alpha Phi sorority and our philanthropy helps fundraise for Women’s Cardiac Health. Last night, we had one of our philanthropy events, King of Hearts, that helped raise money for our philanthropy… Read More from Dancing Through Life

OMGGGG. I realized I graduate …. EARLY. Oh no! This was so fast. So soon. Upon finding out I will be departing my dear Elmhurst a semester earlier than planned, I panicked! Then of course my parents said there was nothing to panic about. Every student has the relief of getting OUT but then that brief moment of a light heart attack occurs when you realize it’s actually happening….
