Was it worth the work?

December 12, 2008

So we go through 4 years of high school and think things can’t get much more complicated than what we’re going to wear to prom or who was seen holding whose hand in the hallway. Then… college comes along. It’ll be the best 4 years of your life, they always say but after hunting down money to pay for tuition, rummaging through and eBay to find the most expensive book for the cheapest price with the least highlighter marks in it and then finally reaching graduation, I can’t help but wonder… was all of the work really worth it?

Flashlight Special: Who Said Graduates of St. John’s Don’t Make it Big?

December 12, 2008

schwab_logo1Hey there, stressful Johnnies,

Well, just like all of you reading this post, I am stressing out hardcore! I got one of my finals out of the way, and got two more to go (doubtful that you really cared, but too bad, I’m telling you anyways). Now, before you go commit academic suicide, just know that the work you are doing could lead to something big in the future. Maybe even famous!

Before I did this, I walked around campus to see if I could get some influence on who the students wanted to see in the post.

“There are famous people who have graduated from St. John’s?” replied one student.

“How about Britney Spears?” replied another. (I really wish I could have made that one up) (more…)

Student Q+A: An English Major Student

October 14, 2008

A very nice looking girl with long brown hair and a lip piercing, named Jessie Schoonover. Her major is in English and is currently a sophomore at St. John’s University and she barely ever comes back to home because she loves her current environment. She is almost a daydreamer about great cities and stories. She possesses a quality that every writer should, better said, and must have to create great works of literature. Also, I met her in one of my journalism class, The Craft of Interviewing. (more…)
