Life On Top of the World

To quote Ferris Bueller, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” I find this to be especially true of life at Wellesley. I had always heard that Wellesley College time moves at a different rate than normal time, but I don’t think I really understood what that meant…

My Term 1 Courses: A Full Plate

Hello hello! Not going to lie, I had to look at my Google Calendar to remember what happened this past week. It was a busy one (when is it not?), complete with the first exam of my senior year, an interview, and plenty of meetings.  It’s the beginning of week 4 now, so I wanted to share a little about…

Cheers to new friends

Last Friday night, I watched the first half of Knives Out with two new first-year friends. This past Friday, after another outdoor Shabbat dinner, we pushed apart couches in the rec room and watched the second hour with two more friends. I’d already seen the movie, which I highly recommend (it was filmed in Wellesley!), and I had such a…

Delta V & Tea season

Hi!!! Woo hoo, It’s the weekend!! I left Miami today to go to New York City and stay with my sister for a few weeks. After spending the past six months in Miami, I definitely need a change of pace and scenery. I am excited to spend some time with my sister, and of course, safely explore the city!  Despite…

First Month Blues

If there’s one thing no one has ever called living through a pandemic, it’s easy. Coping with the pandemic during a major life change- say, moving a thousand miles away to go to college- sometimes seems almost impossible. If you ask any Wellesley first year what their college experience has been like so far, they’ll probably all come up with…

Things that are different

  The food in the dining hall is not as good as it usually is. Gone are the toaster, the stacks of bread, the waffle iron, the panini press, the tubs of Hershey’s ice cream, and, most tragically, the salad bar. Everything comes in styrofoam, plastic, or cardboard containers.  I’ve eaten almost every meal outside. It’s lovely, especially now, as…

Term System & Sunrises!

Hello again!! I just finished my second week of junior year, and while this year looks a bit different because of COVID-19 and remote instruction, it’s going by pretty fast. I am back home in Miami, FL, which has been nice because of the warm weather and good Hispanic food.  Essentially, Wellesley decided to break this semester up into 7-week…

The One With Firsts and Flower Sunday

Welcome back everyone! It has been a LONG time since I last blogged in March, right before our time on campus was cut short and we were all sent home! It is crazy to think I’m back here on campus after nearly 7 months. A lot has changed, but yet at its core Wellesley remains very much the same. I…

Honey, I’m home!

Welcome back everyone! I wanted to quickly (re)introduce myself, in case you’re new here:  My name is Shreya, and I’m a senior at Wellesley this year. Where has the time gone?! I’ve been blogging for the Wellesley College Admissions Office since my sophomore year: I’ve written weekly posts about my summer internship in Boston, experience studying abroad in Cambridge, England,…
