The last thing I expected to be listening to on the way home from Emelia’s vigil was trap music. Piled into my car, my high school friends and I took a long drive on the back roads of rural Connecticut, yelling to each other over heavy bass drops, asking about college, sharing stories about our…

Growing up, I assumed my family was middle class. We had our own house, and my parents had stable jobs. We never seemed to lack anything.

I hear the phrase “I’m broke” a lot at Georgetown. But it’s not “I’m broke and don’t have money to pay my bills.” “I’m broke” is usually used to express the inability to spend more money on a parent’s credit card because it will result in a lecture on responsible spending. I hear the phrase…

The whirlwind of the first few weeks at college can be a real trial by fire, and when you have to turn a relationship into a long-distance one, you realize just how hard communicating with people you care about can be when you are far away. You need to figure out when to call your…
