From the Editors: Winter Break!

Hello to our fabulous followers,

As it is winter break over at Brown University, the bloggers will be taking the next few weeks off from posting to enjoy their break and holiday.

I, as well as my fellow bloggers, wish you all the happiest of holidays and best wishes for the new year. See you back on the blog in January!

Ever true,

Emily

Music to My Ears: Holiday Midnight Organ Concert

FullSizeRenderHey ya’ll! I’m Vicki: class of 2019, decidedly undecided concentration-wise (but it’s between music, neuroscience, and economics), and your blogger for the Music to My Ears column. I’ll be writing all about Brown’s diverse and bustling music scene each week, so stay tuned!

Here at Brown, we’re well into the midsts of finals (yes, I just took my neuroscience final today, and no, I don’t want to talk about it). But that also means we’re in the middle of the holiday season, and that’s definitely something to celebrate.

Last week, Brown’s a capella groups came together to put on the annual Holiday Midnight Organ Concert! Sleep-deprived students from all over College Hill took a welcome break from their Reading Period woes to enjoy some awesome holiday a capella performances. It was also a great opportunity to spend some quality time with friends before heading out for winter break. Continue reading

Student Highlight: Sarah Blunt ’17

Sarah

Hey guys! I’m Eimi (pronounced ‘Amy’) and I’m your correspondent for Student Highlight this year, a column dedicated to highlighting the scholars who attend this institution. While I’ve deduced that there’s no ‘typical’ Brown student, I hope to share a small glimpse into the wonderful and diverse individuals of this community.

4Y: Part 2 of 4.

From Albania to Zimbabwe: Home

A beautiful day in Seoul

Hi!  I’m SeungLee Lee, a sophomore hailing from Seoul, South Korea, and I am thrilled to be writing for From Albania to Zimbabwe. I will try to share all aspects of the international experience at Brown and hopefully provide a well-rounded, honest picture of what an American college experience is really like. Stay tuned!

I’ve been repeatedly saying this for the entire semester, but it is crazy how fast this semester has gone. I’ll be home in less than ten days, which brings some bittersweet emotions. This semester has been my most rewarding semester at Brown – I have yet to experience the infamous sophomore slump, and I feel like I have become more mentally equipped to manage stressful, overbearing situations. I no longer have the “why am I here?” question I constantly asked myself freshman year. I finally feel at home and appreciate this quaint, beautiful city more and more.

Snapshots of Brown: The Final(s) Countdown

IMG_1694My view for the next two weeks

Do you long for new pictures of Brown’s campus to look at on a regular basis? Well look no further! My name is Brianna Lambert and I’ll be bringing you weekly photos depicting the life of a Brown student with Snapshots of Brown.

If you couldn’t tell by the title of this post (which I’m super proud of), the end of the semester is here and finals are quickly approaching. I’ve already found myself spending more and more time in the library attempting to prepare for exams. Before fully committing to my new life as a library-dwelling troll, I decided to have one last hurrah around campus.

Are you interested in theatre at Brown?  Whether you’re a veteran actor or a fresh newbie, you’ve come to the right place – Stage Write! I’m Olivia Cummings, first-year Shakespeare enthusiast (try to find the Shakespeare reference in this blog post!), techie, and budding thespian. I’ll be writing about my experiences in the various facets of theatre life at Brown this year.

If you’re a senior applying to college right now, I’m sure the foremost thing on your mind is actually getting into college.  But, trust me, that will happen!  And once you’re here you will have to start thinking about what you want to achieve in the time you have here. If you plan on concentrating in TAPS (specifically in the acting and directing track), one of your goals could be to get picked for the senior slot!

A Fresh View: Going Home

Weha

Hello, Brown enthusiasts! My name is Leah Goldman, and I’ll be your socially-awkward blogger for A Fresh View for the coming year. Join me as I attempt to make my way through this slightly terrifying yet extremely exciting experience known as The First Year of College.

This week I want to talk a little bit about my first experience being home since starting college. I’m fortunate enough to live pretty close to Brown (a little under 2 hours away by car), so I could have gone home a lot more often than I did this semester. However, I really wanted to immerse myself in Brown and adjust, so I didn’t think it made sense to be running home to Connecticut every chance I had. My first time at home was for Thanksgiving, just over a week ago. It felt really great to be home, but definitely a bit different as well.
