  • An Open Letter to the Underacheiver (4/25/2016) - This open letter might hurt some feelings, but it’s like that saying that explains how everyone has an opinion ( if you don’t know the saying, please google it). Throughout my college career, I’ve seen people go above and beyond in terms of academics, activities and getting to know and help people. Sadly however, I’ve […]
  • 5 Questions to Ask at an Interview (4/25/2016) - I’ve had the opportunity to talk with some people in the workforce over the past couple of months and get some advice about how to present yourself at an interview, and what questions to ask the interviewer. Asking questions as the interviewee is one of the most important aspects of a job interview, and it […]
  • Give It A Listen: “Amerika” by Young the Giant (4/18/2016) - One of my favorite bands have finally reemerged with new music, and once again, the didn’t disappoint. Young the Giant’s “Amerika” shows a little bit of a departure from their previous music. Their ambient sound and heavy use of synthesizers is still prevalent in this song, but what makes the song different is the complexity […]
  • 10 Things I’ll Miss When I Graduate ( Del Val Edition) (4/8/2016) - Through my college career, I’ve seen a lot. I’ve met people who were……..questionable characters, endured the struggles of transferring while finding out what exactly I needed to do from advisers who should be stripped of such a title ( I actually had an “adviser” at MONTCO tell me after I had asked “Should I take […]

  • An Open Letter to the Weather (4/4/2016) - Dear Weather, You suck. I know, I know I know, this is getting off on the wrong foot. But may I ask you, what gives you the right? What gives you the right to do this? You know, a couple of weeks ago, I was sitting on my back patio in the sunshine and thinking […]
  • Review Of Jeff Marshall’s Presentation (4/2/2016) - Yesterday afternoon, Jeff Marshall, who is an executive with the OMNICOM group that was co-founded  by Del Val alumni Tom Watson, gave one of the most impressive speeches I’ve ever attended. Speeches that are mainly geared to attract students can easily become dull and dry, leaving the audience blankly staring in a PowerPoint presentation wondering when […]
  • An Open Letter to the “Real World” (3/28/2016) - Dear “Real World”, I know I’ve been staring down my calendar this whole semester, counting down the days until I meet you. During that time, I’ve had multiple mental breakdowns, last minute assignments that barely made it in in time for the deadline, and people asking me what I’m going to do when I meet you. […]
  • Should We Be Doing Something? (3/28/2016) - You know, as I watched the news broadcast of the Brussels bombing, I thought to myself “When is this shit going to end?” I’ve been asking myself questions like “Isn’t there something we can all do to stop this stuff from happening, or is this just the kind of fucked up world we live in […]
  • Give It A Listen- “Run Wild” (Acoustic) by Jon Bellion (3/21/2016) - I’ve always really enjoyed the acoustic versions of songs. It gives the artist to put a different spin on a song other than the regular studio version. Jon Bellion, an artist from Long Island, New York, has been slowly building his career over the past few years with his hits “Jim Morrison,” “Carry Your Throne,” […]
  • Daffodils Mean Spring! (3/21/2016) - Spring has finally sprung! As I’ve walked around the Del Val campus lately, I’ve started to see the early sign of spring ( here comes the allergies). One of my favorite parts about this campus is the gardens of Daffodils that can be found throughout the campus. I found these buggers pictured below sticking it […]

  • Spring Break = Spring Bank (2/26/2016) - Ah, spring break. For me, and most of my friends, it was the greatest excuse to sit back, watch NetFlix, cuddle with your cat under the blanket, and hope nobody had the audacity to knock on your door or call your cell phone. To me, spring break was the excuse to do nothing, and to […]
  • Advertisers Are Shaking the Rattle at the Baby (2/21/2016) - I used to love Super Bowl Sunday not only for the game and the pageantry, but also the commercials. I would look forward to see how advertisers came up with witty and funny ways to convey their message. I mean it goes right along with the great Super Bowl tradition right? You crack open a […]
  • A Sit Down With Jim O’Connor (2/20/2016) - I’ve always found the relationship between student and professor to be an interesting one. In some degree, they are your academic superior. They hold all the knowledge and are often the medium between what happens in the “real world”, as we often like to call it, and the classroom. However, too often I find that […]
  • Book Review- Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill (2/7/2016) -     When I started to read Think and Grow Rich, I had little to no expectations as to how it would benefit me. Around that time, I had recently tried to define what success meant to me. Success is a broad term and it means something different to everybody. It can mean obtaining your […]
  • The Unknown History of Lake Galena (2/7/2016) - There’s a town under Lake Galena in Peace Valley Park. Don’t worry, your eyes aren’t deceiving you, you read that correctly. I almost didn’t believe it when I heard it, but the more I looked into it, I found it to be true. If you’re like me, your first reaction is to ask yourself “How […]
