Deliciously Yours, Just Bring OneCard

Over last semester, eating in the Ville for my reviews has become one of my favorite things to do. As a self-proclaimed homebody, I’m far more likely to go to Sharples for its convenience and comfort than I am to venture out to try a new restaurant in the Ville. Every other week, I have… Keep Reading

Endless Possibilities, Aisle One

They say ignorance is bliss. They’re wrong. I’ve been at Swarthmore for nearly four months and I’m here to tell you, that when I went to the Co-Op for the first time on a sunny afternoon in late November and, rid of my ignorance, I experienced true bliss. There’s something magical about the Co-Op. I… Keep Reading

I swear under my breath, wonder how I’ve managed to lose track of time again, and come after my friends have… Keep Reading

Vicky’s Place: A Prime Place for Breakfast

Breakfast has traditionally been lauded as the most important meal of the day, and it’s impossible for me to feel fully refreshed after waking up until I’ve eaten breakfast. I often stand with breakfast hardliner Leslie Knope who wondered “Why would anyone ever eat anything other than breakfast food?” While JJ’s Diner unfortunately doesn’t exist… Keep Reading


On going home and coming back

From the moment I first visited campus during my junior year of high school, Swarthmore felt like home. Standing on Magill Walk, I felt an inexplicable wave of comfort and familiarity. I still do. During the stress of moving in and saying good-bye to my family, I was comforted by the fact that my room… Keep Reading
