Dear Freshman Year,

Thanks for helping me.

Dear Freshman Year,
Deanna Jacopino

With freshman year over, I've found myself reminiscing more than I ever have before. Freshman year has a weird way of changing people whether it be for better or worse. I'm lucky to say that my freshman year has definitely changed me for the better! I still can't believe that freshman year is over because it feels like just yesterday I was finishing my senior year of high school. It's true what they say, college really does go by like the snap of your fingers. So please, Time, slow down.

Not going to lie, freshman year wasn't always easy. It had its ups and it definitely had its downs, but I guess that is all part of the process. Back in August, I was pretty scared to start all over again at a new place. Little did I know that the second I began college my life would change forever.

During this past year, I was able to figure out who I am and who I want to be as a person. I was able to commit myself to my school work, make many new friends and even lose some people along the way. Every situation this year good or bad has helped me figure out who I am and who I want to be. So if you're reading this and you were a part of it, thank you. All of this has shaped me into the person I have always dreamed of becoming.

This past year has been a journey I know I will always remember. So finally, thank you, freshman year, for teaching me so many valuable lessons and bringing so many amazing people into my life. You will be missed terribly, but as the saying goes; "On to the next one." See you in the fall sophomore year!

With fall 2022 already around the corner, it's time to bring out the flannels, thermals, button-ups, and sweaters that have remained untouched for almost a year. Fall is all about individuality and authenticity, so style these clothing items in whichever way you please.

That being said, I also included a few styling tips for each item to help you get some inspiration and create a mental lookbook. The following fifteen sweaters range from neutral, color block, stripes, cable knit, cashmere, cardigans, and more.

Wine Wednesdays!

How to get through the best Hump Day get together.


What would Wine Wednesdays be without wine? Grab a bottle of red and a bottle of white so that you have some variety. If you feel like splurging, get a bottle of Rosé too.

Her Campus

I remember freshman year like it was just yesterday. I remember frantically walking to my first class with my highlighted map of campus in hand trying to get there early to get a front row seat. I remember learning that college exams are very different from high school ones. Studying the night before an exam just doesn’t cut it like it used to. Through the good, bad and the ugly of my freshman year, I knew everything was going to be OK because I was only a freshman. I didn’t know any better! It was only going to get easier right?

Goodbye August, Hello September

Why August is the longest month and the transition to fall is warmly welcomed.

Hannah Cook

August was a long month. This year, it was probably my longest month. It felt never ending. The end of the month felt so far away.
