    Start Planning for Next Summer—Apply for Grants Today
    It is 9:16 a.m. and I am already sweating. My calf-length skirt sticks to my legs as I slide out of the cab, inhaling the fresh air of a side street while choking on the remnants of crowded morning traffic pollution still in my lungs. I need water. Somehow, my lukewarm water bottle fails to satiate my craving for just one ...

    It Started with a Lisp: Tips For Learning A New Language
    “She sells sea- She sells- She sells seashells by the seashore.” It was a problem- a minor one in North America, but big elsewhere.

    Atlas Shrugged, and Then Offered a Scholarship

    Atlas Shrugged, and Then Offered a Scholarship
    While other, more practical students spent their summers entering realistic and potentially profitable scholarship contests, I spent the month of August reading Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged. As anyone familiar with the book will be able to tell you, this was no weekend read. 1,069 pages of tiny print—and, at one point in the novel, a fifty-page-long speech on the light ...

    An English Major’s Guide to Writing Papers

    An English Major’s Guide to Writing Papers
    One of my favorite things about language is that no two people have exactly the same arsenal of diction and syntax from which they can pull and construct their writing and everyday conversations. There are words I do not know but that other people use on a daily basis, and there are words that, to me, have a slightly different connotation ...
