Logging Off

It’s once again that time of the semester to look back and say to yourself, “Wow! This semester really flew by!” I am definitely one of those people. Usually, taking a class from 7-9:30 PM on a Thursday would not be the most ideal time for class for an undergraduate, given that multiple recruiting events, speaker […]

It’s hard to fathom the fact that if I was born just a generation prior, none of my teenage years would have Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, or YouTube.
