On college rejections and romances go sour. By: Khuyen Bui Gia
Image Via sunnyydoodles.tumblr.com; outdated since Stanford charged $90 in 2012.
This morning, my phone shuffled to a song that invariably reminded me of a college that I really wanted to but didn't get in. I don't know why I haven't deleted it from my favorite playlist yet, but usually I will skip whenever the playlist comes to the song.
A Month in the Village of Calhuitz--Summer Program in Guatemala By: Agnes Zhou
The summer of 2012 was the last summer before my college application started and when I clicked “submit” to my application to Global Public Service Academies (GPSA)’s volunteer program in Guatemala, I still couldn't decide between this program and summer school.

Weak willed as I am, I tried to find a way around this problem (lack of self-discipline) by forcing the environment to work to my advantage aka stop seducing me i ...Read More

I want to share a few points from the speech about youth a speaker made today in my school, and also my thoughts of the issue.We have been hearing so much about the importa ...Read More
Campus Life: Intramural and Varsity Sports By: Aaron Goh
And summer is now upon us. Whether you live in slightly more temperate regions of the world, or in the tropical locales (as I do), there’s one thing that we all share in common – a short break from school before a new college year begins.
This shall be the start of a short series on campus life and its various aspects. I’ve been receiving quite a few ...Read More
