Student Voices: Poetry, please

Student Voices: Poetry, please

I’d bet most people look at poetry the same way they do modern art; that is, squint at it, baffled, and walk away shaking their heads. While I’ll admit I’ve had that experience with modern art, poetry remains something special to me. I don’t know when I discovered poetry, but it feels like it’s been […]

Student Voices: A Balancing Act

My daughter has been throwing these awful tantrums lately. Sometimes they make me proud— She is willful and persistent. Like her mommy, she takes no sh*t.

Student Voices: Stella is turning heads

Some people, especially Indy natives and fans of downtown, may have noticed the sudden closing of Pizzology, and the even quicker turnaround to the new restaurant Stella.

Student Voices: Life After Graduation

When you start college, you don’t really think about life after graduation. You are just thinking about getting through each week without having a breakdown.

You may think that a Writing Center focuses specifically on scholarly pieces of writing, which students bring to tutors to edit for perfection. However, this is anything but the case. I have […]

Student Voices: Age of Opportunities

Student Voices: Age of Opportunities

The first time I felt old was in fourth grade. Why, exactly? Well, it was the first time I had to wear a sweater vest to school. I grew up wearing a uniform: navy pants, belt, solid-colored dress shoes, white collared shirt, and, starting in fourth grade, a sweater vest. From fourth grade and up, […]

Student Voices: A New Side of the Zoo

One summer when I was a kid, my mom bought a season pass to the Indianapolis Zoo. More days than not, I remember my mom and I donning bikinis and flip flops, lathering up with baby oil and marching our backpack-laden booties through the front gates like we owned the place. It was always hot. […]
