I’ve developed a set of strategies so that staying awake is no longer just a matter of endurance. Rationing caffeine intake is an artform. Personally, I tend to start with a black eye—a coffee with a double shot of espresso—and buy another red eye—a coffee with a single shot—every few hours. I’ve found that no…

The day they left for college, two of my friends and I met at a Chick-fil-A next to the highway. During high school, the suburban chain had served as a base, an easy place to meet up and eat an inexpensive meal. As we sat and ate our chicken nuggets, recounting memories of the last…

The world is a crazy place. It is wild, chaotic, and theatrical, and the political climate we are living in is even more so. Sometimes, amidst all this disorder, it is easy to feel lost and invisible, to float with the chaos. And so, for our fashion issue this year, we chose to make it…

The last time I ever saw my grandfather was June 21, 2015. On that day, Father’s Day, he and I sat in his bedroom, which overlooked the lush, if overgrown, front lawn. My dad, driving a brand new tractor he had bought for my grandparents to reduce the time it took to cut the grass,…

You are most likely to encounter the New York City bitch during rush hour. Lifted chin, overall polished and professional appearance, determined gaze, assertive posture, eyes staring straight forward. This bitch will shove you out of the way for a place in a packed subway car. This bitch is used to having to assert herself…

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…

For those who wonder what the Hoya state of mind is come second-semester senior year, one fun fact is that a cheery email from the Office of Advancement’s “Class of 2017 Fund” comes around every two weeks to nag me about making a “gift” to Georgetown. Last week, they declared the start of a “HOYAlympics”:…

I am 12, or around that age, when my parents divorce without explanation. I tell myself it is simple: They just did not love each other anymore. Elizabeth Pankova I am 16 when my boyfriend defines our relationship under the mantra, “Whoever cheats first, dies first.”  Romantic, I know. It is he who tells me…

When my grandfather was diagnosed with stomach cancer, my mother decided not to tell him. Instead, she told him he was having surgery for an ulcer. We went along with it until the pathology report showed that the cancer was not, as we had hoped, in its early stages, but that he would need further…
