Hey everyone! Coming at you live from a study room in the library at 2:09 in the AM on a Wednesday morning. I’m feeling that burst of energy right after you receive an email about your 8:30 a.m. Psychology class being canceled, and what better way to celebrate than to stay up writing a blog post! In the spirit of canceling class and winding down from a relaxing fall break, I want to focus my endless stream of consciousness on some of the fun things that myself and other students get to do during our break from school work. Hope you all enjoy!
This was the second fall break in a row I decided to take some time off from being on Campus and return to the rainy homeland of Salem, Oregon. I spent some down time with family and...Read More

As an eager freshman, my philosophy is to try everything! With that said, here’s a recount of one of the busiest days I’ve had at Oxy thus far.
6:30-9:30 A.M.: My packed day started bright and early with my very first volunteering event with A-Team (Admissions Team) where Oxy students volunteer to help out with various events hosted by Admissions, such as the College Board Workshop, Explore Oxy (I went to this!), and Admitted Student Day. A month in and somehow I’m already the overly excited Oxy greeter in the...Read More

Dance Production is certainly one of the most popular student organizations here at Oxy! It is an entirely student-run production, with student choreographers, dancers, and production staff. The audition for dancers is held every year in September. Auditions are open to all students, regardless of their experience or skill level. After six months of practicing, student choreographers and dancers will present the final shows, which feature professional-level production. It is the one of the biggest events on campus every year, with more student participants from every facet of the Oxy community than any other organization.
I joined Dance Pro both my freshman and sophomore years. I keep coming back because it really helps me step out of my...Read More

So far everyone who has walked by me in the library has given me a prolonged look of judgement and pity. And to be honest I can’t really blame them. I am writing this blog to you at 4:43 a.m, I am sprawled under a table with four empty coffee cups littered around me, and six minutes ago I was literally banging my head against the floor. Yes, I look like a freshly exhumed corpse, but inside I feel totally alive. No matter how stressful my week is academically, I know that the dance community on campus will turn my mood around. Every year, dance becomes a huge part of Oxy culture and my life at Oxy.
And this year is special. I can feel it. The energy in Dance Production is electrifying, the...Read More

Well, folks, a lot has happened since the last time I wrote a blog post. I cut my own hair (no one could tell), I got married (to the art of making schedules), and I turned 21 (much less exciting than you would expect). I met the cast of Criminal Minds when they filmed at Oxy. I officially moved into a house for the school year. I found a sweatshirt at Goodwill with an image of a cat playing Bingo (my best find to date). The past few months have been wildly busy for me, which is why I’m now having trouble condensing it all into one succinct post that makes sense. It’s difficult to choose one facet of my life to focus on because everything is of equal importance. Except my cat. She is the most important of all. But I’ll save that conversation...Read More

I started out my day thinking that by the end of my marine ecosystems (Bio 260) field trip, I would have an awesome day of fish collecting to write about. That all changed at about 10:30am.
As instructed, our lab group assembled at 7:50am outside the Moore lab, ready to head to Belmont shores to perform 6 beach seines. The beach seine net, the buckets, the coolers, and all necessary instruments were loaded in the vans, and we set off to join the traffic that awaited us.
When we got to the beach, we made the trek over to our first beach seining location. Beach seining is a method of fishing which uses a net with a collection...Read More

There’s a lot I could say about myself to try and give a picture of what my life is like here at Oxy. I could talk about what I’m involved in-- everything I do with Planned Parenthood, the Queer Student Alliance, Wellness Committee, Glee Club, jazz vocal lessons, and the many different jobs I’ve had on campus. I have many stories of tears, both happy and sad, even from just two semesters of being here. But I feel like there’s this thing about Oxy, that makes us truly ...Read More
