5 Reasons Why You Should Attend Hobart and William Smith After High School

Almost every college student loves the college they attend or did attend, hopefully. I'm very lucky that after three semesters I am just as much in love with my school and the campus and the town as I was when I took my tour when I was a senior in high school. So I am a little biased, but here is why you should attend Hobart and William Smith Colleges after you graduate high school:

1. Seneca Lake

The campus and the surrounding town of Geneva are located right next to Seneca Lake. The lake is absolutely gorgeous year round, but when you first arrive on campus at the end of the summer, you will not feel as though summer had ended. The Colleges have their own boathouse with a dock and additional floating docks that students have access too which is a huge bonus.

2. Study abroad

Hobart and William Smith Colleges boasts an impressive statistic of having around 60% of their undergraduate's study abroad. In addition to semester programs, they are also short-term programs abroad offered in the summer as well as over the winter break. No matter how hectic your schedule or even if you are a variety athlete, it is possible for you to study abroad.

3. Guaranteed internship program

When looking for a college I constantly had people reminding me that after these four years are over I really need to have a job at the end of it. In today's society, a huge advantage in the job market is getting a job. Well Hobart has a guaranteed internship program which basically means that if you attend a series of workshops that the Colleges have set up, ( the workshops include things such as networking and interview skills, as well as building a resume) then you will have help in searching for an internship and if it is unpaid you will receive a stipend.

4. Small town feel, big opportunities

Geneva is a fairly small town compared to what a lot of students from New York City and Boston are used to, but for me its bigger than my hometown, but still fairly small so it's comforting. The school and town provide so many opportunities to give back and be involved in the community, that even people who are from the middle of NYC can experience what it's like to live in a small town and how big of an influence a community has on all the members of it.

5. The colleges allow you to grow as a person

I am pretty self-aware of the fact that I am not the same person that I was in high school nor am I the same girl that I was last spring even. At the Colleges, I had to learn how to be independent and I was put into situations that I would never have been put in if I had not gone there right after college. Academically I have been challenged and I feel as though when I go to class I am learning something that I truly care about.

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.


I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

I Asked Instagram How 2020 Was, And Maybe It Wasn't The Worst Year Ever

2020 is a year to remember but it's not as bad as we made it out to be.


It's finally 2021 and we're honestly all just happy that 2020 is over. I decided to ask my Instagram followers how they felt about 2020 and the results were a little more mixed up than expected.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
