Words of Wisdom for the Class of 2018

So now that the incoming class of 2018 finally knows who they are, they're probably looking around for some useful information regarding Pomona. Thus, class of 2018, this post on my reflections on my freshman year and some things I learned is dedicated to you.

Playing at Pomona

I never did theater before coming to college. I always maintained that singing was "my thing" and never had the chance to try anything else out anyway.

First Semester Reflections

So, here we are, at the end of the semester and, in my case, the end of my first semester here at college. I have to admit I've had a pretty tough semester, not academically, but emotionally. That's not to say I had no academic troubles! I had papers and papers to write that I put off because I didn't know how to go about them or because I was just plain lazy. I had exams...wel...
