And Then There Was One…

April 6, 2016

…one month that is. It is completely insane but somehow I have come to the end of my undergraduate college experience. I know that everyone says that college is over in a blink of an eye, but it’s hard to actually conceptualize that when you are a freshman at orientation...

Boulder Bucket List

April 4, 2016

I am graduating in less than two months which is both exciting and scary. The coolest part about my imminent departure is that I’m reflecting more on my experiences at CU-Boulder, and the things I should do before I leave. Here are some of the things on my CU-Boulder bucket...

Food Life: Boulder's Best Foodie Apps

March 25, 2016

If there is one thing that I love more than anything else, it is food. Eating is my hobby. Unfortunately, one pretty defining aspect of me right now is that I am a broke college student. Fellow broke foodies rejoice, though, because there is hope. You can still eat well...

Eventful in Boulder

March 23, 2016

CU-Boulder is not a place where you can be bored: no matter how involved you are, there are events happening practically every day here. I have gone to so many different things from watching Jane Goodall speak to going to the South Asian Students Association Show to free fitness classes...
