You may remember an honor society from your high school, either local or national, or you may have even been in the honor society. Here at Lycoming, and at most colleges across the nation as well, there is not one singular honors society, but around twenty-two different societies, usually based on discipline. These honor societies are usually chapters (local divisions) of the larger honors society. So, for example, the Lycoming College chapter of the national Religious and Theology Studies Honors Society (Theta Alpha Kappa) is named Alpha Theta Gamma.
For the first three years of my college experience, we have had the same meal plan options. The old meal plans were each worth $2,797. The first of the previous two options gave students unlimited access to the cafeteria (meaning you could swipe into the cafeteria multiple times during the day) with around $100 of flex money, which could be used at either Jack’s Corner (the late-night fast-food place on campus) or Café 1812 (the coffee and sandwich place on campus). The second previous meal plan option gave you 14 meal slots a week (to be used at the cafeteria or the Café) and $150 in flex. Because of meal equivalency, there were times when you could get food at the Café instead of going to the cafeteria.
Our world is filled with binaries. Some we barely notice, taking them as they are presented to us. But others are overwhelmingly apparent, such as the current great division between Democrats and Republicans in America. However, despite the pressure Americans feel to choose between these two, republicans and democrats do not represent all of America.
One of the hardest parts of the school year is ending the fall semester and going home for winter break. By the time finals week comes around, you are thoroughly exhausted from a very busy semester full of exams, presentations, readings, and possibly even working. But by that point, you have also started getting into the rhythm of the school week. The days seem to blur and a pattern of class, dinner, and homework makes itself apparent. And then, before you know it, finals are over and you’re home.

Some people seem to have everything all laid out. From the moment they accept their diploma in high school, they know what they want to do with their lives and who they want to be. Originally, I thought I was grouped in with these highly efficient people, but now, in my junior year of college, I find myself questioning things more often than not.
One of my greatest regrets about my college career is waiting so long to take advantage of Lycoming College's career advisors. As a freshman, I thought that I had plenty of time before I had to start thinking about my career after college. Just recently as a junior, I started to have a mental breakdown. Questions were flying through my mind at the speed of light, and I had no answers.

My freshman year at Lycoming College, my friends and I attended the fall trip to Hershey Park. We all had a great time, and I couldn’t wait to go again. My sophomore year, we did not attend the trip, but this year my friend Abbie and I went with the Campus Activities Board (CAB).
