Hello fellow Jewelligans...
I am writing this blog from my ridiculously priced apartment in LA! Living out in LA is expensive, but it's been worth the pain of paying rent and bills! It's been four weeks since I started my internship at TOMS in Los Angeles and I've been living it up ever since. This summer has truly been the experience of a lifetime thus far, and I'm excited to see where the next six weeks will take me.…Continue

I’m back for more Orientation Adventures.
By now, you’ve all gotten word of your Orientation Mentor from Student Affairs—and hopefully a letter should be well on its way from your actual mentor. Do you find that exciting? I certainly do.
I think that Mentors might be some of my favorite people in the entire world. I mean, look at this picture.…Continue

At least, it was the amount of time when I started writing this post. So much for being exact.…Continue

By Will Gross – Over the years, Dr. Jean Hawkins’s Cost Accounting students have often struggled to learn and appreciate the practical workings of business supply chains and the problems associated with managing them.

"My favorite band is in Saint Louis tomorrow night?! I need to find people to go with me." Thoughts that ran through my head all day Tuesday when I found out M83 was in the area. Eventually I convinced three of my fraternity brothers to make the trek with me.
Quality bro time in the STL. We drove the 4 hour trip from KC and arrived at "the loop", a downtown strip near WashU with restaurants, clothing stores, theaters, and lots of hipsters. The M83 concert wasn't until…Continue

It wasn't until the last week of March that I received an email from TOMS saying that they had looked over my application and…Continue

I cannot believe there are only two weeks of classes left in the semester. Seriously, it didn't even hit me until yesterday! This semester is a little weird for me, in that I am not pulling-my-hair-out busy all the time like I have been in the past. And maybe that's why the end of the semester has slowly and quietly crept up on me. Not that I am bragging about how stress-free and not-busy I am, but it just goes to show how dynamic each semester at college really is.…Continue

It seems that everything seems to pile up at the first sign of spring. The weather turns from dreary to joyous. Unfortunately, I have no time to go outside and longboard in the plentiful sunshine... this is by choice however. Between having two to three tennis matches per week, practice every day, planning greek week, making videos for admissions, student senate, classes, and organizing the TOMS Day Without Shoes event on campus, the only rays that have been plentiful in my life have been…Continue
