Collecting Places to Call Home

With roughly 200 days until graduation, I am acutely aware of how little time I have left at IUPUI. I’m a very sentimental person. I tend to connect deeply with the people and places in my life.

One of those is the inevitable spiel about how fantastic "getting involved in campus" can be. I certainly spent the vast majority of my first few… Continue reading Do at least this one thing your advisors tell you to do:
