A Message from the Editor

Let me first qualify this by saying that I don't spend $150 on a blazer.  Hoewever, I try to shop for better quality items for two reasons:  They tend to last longer (think CPW = cost per wear) and the material looks better.  Although, I'm still very frugal and refuse to spend full price.  I tend to shop during storewide sales, wait to purchase items until I have a coupon, and search through the clearance racks.  If you're on a tight budget (who isn't these days?), here are a few of my tips...

Fall in Love with Walsh by Mari Pionk

Task…write a blog. Experience writing a blog...Potential problem?

When asked to write a blog, my initial response was, “I don’t like writing about myself.”. Well, when I sat down to really think about it… this is not about me. This is about you. This is about you as a future Walsh College student, this is about you as a current Walsh College student, and this is about you as an alumnus of Walsh College. 

When you’re done reading this, I want you to have an image of Walsh College that is so vivid and fresh in your mind that you could reach out and touch it, feel it, and sense it. Ultimately, believe that you are a part of Walsh College in its entirety.  Continue reading
