    I Survived The Beast from the East, But The End of Lent Term is Another Story

I Survived The Beast from the East, But The End of Lent Term is Another Story

I’ve lived in London for about 7 months and I surprisingly don’t miss my hometown of San Francisco as much as I thought I would. It wasn’t until Storm Emma hit London two weeks ago where I started missing the calm weather of San Francisco. To be fair, I have experienced snow after living in Washington, D.C., but this was […]

The first Rosebery Hall Room Decor Exposition

Welcome ladies and gentlemen to this most exquisite event.

Lent Term is already in its final stretch and it has been seven months since we moved into LSE Rosebery Hall. Between long brunches, Sunday mornings eating pancakes in the kitchen and birthday celebrations, this experience has been a blast. You can read all about my Rosebery life on this post […]

LSE Groups 2017/18: my experience

I’ve been at LSE for almost two terms now. An accumulative total of 20 weeks to be exact. In my time I’ve gone through my motions and phases – where I count years instead of weeks in terms of personal change, where I’ve felt really tested about what it means to be me, and where I want to be […]

How Beveridge Shaped My Perspective on Poverty

Being a Social Policy student at the LSE, my views on social issues such as poverty have been constantly changing. Coming from the United States (this is by no means a valid reason to justify my lack of knowledge), I honestly had no idea who William Beveridge was. It wasn’t until I started attending LSE public lectures and discussed […]

Lent Term blues and the fear of the future

When I first got to LSE, it felt like being here was exactly what I was meant to do. I felt like all of my decisions were right and this moment was the time of my life. I even wrote about it here.

I still feel like that, but Lent Term is developing on a completely different note from Michaelmas […]

Reading Week: Exactly What Is Needed for The Road Ahead

Depending on your program and courses, week 6 or reading week is a week in the term to catch up on readings, go on holiday, or pursue anything you’ve always wanted to do. Before the start of reading week, practically all my professors remarked: “Enjoy your reading week!” I thought to myself: Is this a sick joke? Enjoy?! How […]

Public Lectures: An LSE type of fun

I feel like at LSE we have a very specific notion of what it means to have fun. We sit down for coffee and start talking about internet infrastructures, one hour later we see ourselves talking about trains. No wonder that some of the most exciting things happening on campus are the public lectures, open events that everyone can […]

Should I take outside options in my degree?

Have you thought about taking outside options at LSE?

LSE prides itself on being a ‘social science’ university and thus taking an interdisciplinary approach to its subject matter. This really appealed to me when I first heard about LSE, because it matched the same interest that I had to approach a topic through the lens of different subjects.

As a first […]

How Last Term Shaped My Goals For Lent Term

After just submitting a few summative essays and getting over a 2-week-long flu, I can finally say Goodbye Michaelmas term and HELLO LENT TERM! Even though Lent Term is just as long as Michaelmas term, I feel more prepared for this upcoming term. Maybe because it’s a new year or because I got to catch up on sleep over […]
