After being in South Korea for two months, I have realized just how many things I should have done differently to prepare for my trip. Do not get me wrong, I am having a great time and I have adjusted very well to living abroad, but I have a lot of advice about what I think would have made this easier.
In South Korea, school is even more serious than it is in the US. The structure of Korean life revolves around studying hard and doing well, which in some ways is harmful when it comes to students planning for a future outside of academics.
When I was packing for my time abroad in South Korea, I did not give too much of a thought to how my health would be impacted while abroad. Sure, I thought about all the new experiences, but never what kinds of adjustments I would need to make to my daily life in order to keep myself functioning. Over the past four months, I have needed to change my diet, my exercise routines, my sleep schedule and more to maintain my health while being outside of the U.S. for the first time.
The language barrier is very real. Because I lived a solely English-speaking existence prior to coming to South Korea three weeks ago, I had never realized how much of a challenge it is. I chose to come to Soonchunhyang University for my semester abroad because I wanted a challenge, but I did not realize how much I would have to overcome.
The integrity of the fall 2022 Student Government Association (SGA) election has been called into question by multiple members of SGA. During the election, Kennedy Holt was listed on the ballot on Sept. 17 and was elected SGA president.
I have been waiting to study abroad since I was in middle school, and next semester I am finally going. While my destination of choice has changed a lot in the past eight years, I have been saving my pennies and can finally say I will be leaving the United States for the first time. This coming February, I will be traveling to Asan, South Korea, as a part of the Soonchunhyang University exchange program.
Maya Thompson, a local 10-year-old, performed with the Shippensburg University cheerleaders at the Homecoming football game on Saturday.
My time at Shippensburg Univerity has not been all sunshine and rainbows. A lot of the painful lessons I learned in high school have come in handy as I deal with these problems as an adult without my parents’ help.
William “Bill” Hoffman and Olivia “Livv” Faenza are the 2022 Homecoming Royalty for Shippensburg University, as announced at the homecoming football game on Saturday. Both seniors were honored and excited to have been selected.
On Thursday, Sept. 29, Shippensburg University’s Director of Social Inclusion, Manuel Ruiz, and Residence Director Steven Lopez hosted an open discussion on personal identity and intersectionality.
The Slater of the month for September is Margaret Sobotta, the Arts and Entertainment editor. Sobotta is recognized based on her assistance with all sections of the newspaper.
If you are looking for a book to leave you feeling absolutely empty, Jennifer Saint’s newest novel “Elektra” is for you. Like her other book, “Ariadne,” Saint stayed true to the Greek myths with an emphasis on morals and fate. From cover to cover, “Elektra” is an in-depth, heart-tearing story about rage, revenge and grief. Saint spared no detail and pulled me in chapter after chapter in her gutting rendition of the Battle of Troy.
Your friends are not your friends if they don’t like you. That seems redundant, but I feel the need to say it anyway. I learned this lesson the hard way before coming to college, and it has reshaped the way I view my relationships with other people.
Did you buy bananas from Walmart that went bad before you could bring yourself to eat them? For under $10, you can turn that mushy fruit into a delicious bread.
This past summer, I bought a book to treat myself after a long semester of school. I did not expect to unlock a whole genre of my new favorite books: Greek myth retellings.
There is quite the variety of people in the garden of Shippensburg University. Among the flowers is Jack Myers, a junior biology major in the secondary education certification track.
This past summer, I worked in my father’s cancer research laboratory as a laboratory technician. My favorite part of this job was learning to work with the colony of mice we maintained to study the way different receptors inside cells impact cancer growth. This singular part of working in a laboratory required many hours of training, briefing on protocols and approval clearances. It gave me a deeper understanding of what exactly happens when scientists use animals for research, and I think that the media has skewed the reality of this practice.
On June 24, the Supreme Court finalized overturning Roe v. Wade. News that the Supreme Court might decide to overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked in May. Much of the public was outraged by the news then, and even more are angered now.
