Debate at Whitman

A challenge that I often face is being in the present; my thoughts run through my head a million miles a minute and because of that I really enjoy immersive activities.  When I’m in a debate round, it is impossible for me to think about anything other than what’s going on right in front of […]

Graduating Early

For most undergraduate college students, a typical bachelor’s degree takes four years to complete. Within this timeframe, students can take core classes, decide their major, and dabble in classes that are irrelevant to their main study while also being involved in extracurriculars and work.

The Climate Strike

The concept of college being an educational arena both in and outside of the classroom is not new. I just did not expect to be so moved by an educational experience outside of the classroom so quickly into my college career.
