“Adjusting” Perceptions of Chiropractic

I am constantly amazed by the body’s natural, inborn healing ability. It’s incredible to think about all the functions our bodies perform without us even realizing it. I grew up with a deep respect for the human body. My dad is a chiropractor, and from him I received regular chiropractic treatment (adjustments) and learned about...

Cultural Switch-Ups: Reproductive Rights in Chile

When you see Instagram posts of people’s study abroad experiences, you never see the 2 a.m. Wednesday night faces of desperation as gringos try to decipher jumbled streams of slang and typos in different languages. You don’t see your fellow type-A Hoyas throwing their Google Calendars to the side as they beg their new classmates...

If you could do it over again, would you choose Georgetown? I sat there staring at the question. “Well, it’s more nuanced than just ‘yes’ or ‘no,’” I thought. No, I wouldn’t. That sounds bad. Yes, I would. Well now I’m just appeasing the survey. No, I wouldn’t. I didn’t know how to answer. I…

I wasn’t too sure about her in the beginning. We met through CHARMS, its shadowy algorithm connecting us amidst a sea of freshmen girls who counted Parks and Recreation among their favorite TV shows.
