Roses and Chocolate on the Brain

Valentine’s Day festivities remind me of the (fairly accurate) cliché of the typical Georgetown club—desirable and enticing but exclusive, cliquey, and restricted to a select few lucky individuals. The look on the face of the sad freshman who stares longingly at Hoya Snaxa, lamenting his rejection from the glamorous life of swiping GoCards for $12.50…

Open Access: Veganism and Science

For the first two years I was vegan, I didn’t get a flu shot. I also believed that eating too much protein would lower the pH of my blood and give me cancer, and that if I ate enough raw vegetables, I could cure anything. I don’t like to talk about that period of my…

I scooped up the honey-glazed bananas soaked in melted ice cream, dripping onto the strawberries left in the bowl. I took a bite, expecting the ice cream to be coconut milk flavored. Instead, I tasted velvety vanilla. Putting down the spoon, I questioned why my high school dining hall named what was unmistakably a banana…

October 1962 was a busy month. On the 6th, the Sino-Indian War broke out, which would claim over 10,000 casualties in the span of a month. On the 9th, Uganda gained independence from the United Kingdom, and, two weeks later, admission to the United Nations. And from the 16th to the 28th, the Cuban Missile…

I was first introduced to the social model of disability during a freshman year writing seminar focused on disability. I read pieces from paralyzed men who believed that disability-causing illnesses or injuries, called “impairments,” were not problems, but instead, the problem is society’s refusal to accommodate them. They called for wheelchair ramps and elevators rather…

Picking team members for group projects in my business classes is never easy. First, I scan the room for anyone I know. Upon realizing my classmates are mainly young men I have briefly passed on campus, I search for other women. My search quickly ends when I realize how few women are in  my class….

In a place where your 2300 SAT score and your 3.99 GPA do very little to distinguish you from your fellow Hoyas, no skill is more valuable than creativity. And although both academic and professional endeavors allow students to exhibit their creative brain power, there is no platform where youthful innovation shines as brightly as…
