A Krannert and Liberal Arts double major might be easier than you think

Wednesday, December 5th, 2018

From the day I was born, my parents spoke to me in different languages. My dad would speak to me in English, and my mom in Spanish. Those were the two languages they grew up speaking at home. As I grew up thinking and speaking both languages, the benefits slowly became more noticeable. By high […]

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

Surviving my first college case competition

Friday, January 20th, 2017

What is a Case Competition? Honestly I had no idea coming into Purdue.

From study buddies to best friends

Friday, November 18th, 2016

I am so glad I made the decision to go to Purdue even though it is 2,000 miles away from home. Purdue University and West Lafayette are exactly opposite from what I am used to back home in San Jose, California. Things move fast in San Jose. There are crowds and more startup businesses per […]

My favorite study spot at Purdue

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

Throughout first semester, I tried to find the perfect place to study on campus. Personally, I have to study in an area that is completely silent.

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

After barely waking up at 7 a.m. to go to your first class, looking like a hobo, and sitting next to some stranger in your 7:30, the last thing you probably want to do is awkwardly look over and introduce yourself. I mean, the first day of class is awkward enough already, so why make […]

Tuesday, January 13th, 2015

As a college student, I’ve often felt that there is a gap between what I learn in class and how to apply that material to a tangible career. Numerous times I have sat in a class and wondered, “How will I go about implementing this in a real-life setting with a client or company?” Although […]
