I can’t believe it’s almost here... graduation day. There are so many times that I sit and reflect on everything that’s happened, everything that has gotten me to this point in my life. There were times where I was str...

Remembering all that my mentor has taught me

March 20, 2019

Over break, I was told that one of my mentors, someone who has guided me through my five years at Gannon, may not be allowed to return to campus. Although I will leave her name out of this, I still felt like I need to use my colu...

Looking forward to relaxation over spring break

February 27, 2019

Some people don’t like chocolate, Valentine’s Day

February 13, 2019

Motivation allows students to power through finals

December 5, 2018

Even though we still have to finish the last week of classes and get through finals, I think I can finally say that I’m confident I’ve survived this semester. This has been the most challenging semester I’ve ever had, an...

TSO gives something to look forward to

November 14, 2018

On Thursday, I stopped by my campus mailbox to see if I had anything because I usually try to check once a week. To my surprise, my Trans-Siberian Orchestra tickets were in there! When I first bought the tickets for the show ba...

Philharmonic experience offers enjoyable evening

November 7, 2018

This Saturday, I went to see the Erie Philharmonic show at the Warner Theatre with my sister, Danielle. As always, I had a great time. I love seeing the Philharmonic perform. I enjoy being a young patron of the arts. I thi...

Advising Day gives planning opportunities

October 25, 2018

This Friday on 90.5 WERG from 9 p.m. to midnight, Harlee and I are doing a three-hour show about One Direction for Radio Roulette, a specialty show on WERG. As we started compiling our list of the songs we wanted to play and...
