Life changes a lot in four years at Trinity University

Lauren Schroeter May 4, 2015

Lauren Schroeter March 27, 2015

So it's Spring Family Weekend, you're a senior and your family is conspicuously absent.  What do you do? Um, well, you go about your business as you usually would. A lot of us don't live on campus anyway,...

When Motivation Dies

Lauren Schroeter February 6, 2015

Motivation for school doesn't come easily, especially in January, which is why I have given up entirely on trying to motivate myself.  In short, I have lost all motivation to ever be motivated.  That...

Wake up and smell the stress
