Almost There

It’s hard to believe that I am practically 2/3 of the way done with the MELP program! Yikes! I only have a couple of finals in the next 2 weeks.  Then there’s the formal graduation, one week of break, and then 7 weeks’ worth of classes until it’s completely over! I really liked my classes […]

Outdoor classroom… finally!

Well, we managed to make it out to the outdoor classroom for two of my last classes this semester. Although I haven’t been here for a spring term before, I think professors usually take their students out to the outdoor classroom at least a couple times in the spring. However, it just hasn’t been nice […]

Bonjour, Montreal!

Last weekend, my friends and I took a little vacay out of SoRo up to America’s hat: Canada!! It was my first time to visit, and it was so much fun!  We basically spent the weekend eating and romping around the town.  I finally tried some poutine, which is french fries covered in gravy and […]

2011 MELP Class Photo

Today all 36 MELPs are requested to come together and have our class photo taken. A photographer comes to take a picture of our group that we are presented at the MELP graduation in July and that hangs in Chase so future MELP classes can marvel at our tremendous good looks and intelligence. I joke, […]

VLS Bunnies!

I know I just wrote, but I had to provide an update on the VLS campus bunnies! There is one quite large, black rabbit that has been on campus for some time now. He can usually be found somewhere around the library quad. It was funny to see him out and about as the snow […]

Feelin’ It

I am in no way ready for this semester to be over, although I am quite ready for this current work load to be over. Last night I was up working until 2:00 and woke up and was hard at work again by 6:00. I feel like tonight could be a similar night. You should […]

Counting down the days…

I can’t believe April is almost over for two reasons. First, because it hasn’t really felt like spring yet (there was snow again this weekend!) and second, because it means this semester is almost over. Whoa, where did the time go? Even though we have summer classes, it really feels like things are coming to […]

A Weekend in South Royalton

I took a quick break from the grind of school and a very cold and dreary Spring in South Royalton last weekend by heading to Washington, DC. It was wonderful to be away; I returned to VT with a sun burn from attending EPA Earth Day events on the National Mall. This weekend however, I […]

The Joy of Living in SoRo

I would highly recommend living in South Royalton during your time at VLS. The most obvious reason is not having to drive everyday in the winter. However my real reasoning is because of the sense of community that exists. The past two days have really reminded me of this. Nothing can replace the experience that […]

Three Weeks and Counting

Happy Earth Day!! Go do something outside. It snowed for four hours yesterday, April 21. It was beautiful, although I sure am ready for it to be spring. Despite temperatures in the 30s and snow yesterday, today is supposed to be sunny and 55. You know what this means? I am going running! It’s nice […]
