What I Packed

What I Packed

  Alexis Marchitte—My freshman year I lived in a suite style dorm that had two bedrooms with two girls in each. We all shared a common living room and one bathroom.

Tuition Hikes?!?!

Alex Bill—As we approach the infamous midterm week and everyone is quite a bit more stressed than normal, it’s really great to see a collaborative effort made on campus.
