It’s July now. It seems like the time is flying by during this summer vacation. Before I know it, I will be back up at school doing everything again. Now, I know that we don’t have classes during summer, at least I’m not taking any, but I still have lots of stuff I have been […]

It’s hard to believe I’m going to be starting my third year of college by the end of this summer. I still remember the day that I left high school and my home to come to Gannon. I remember how I thought that college was going to be terrible and I wouldn’t make any friends […]

Growing up is not always the most fun activity. But we all do it and every year as college students we get closer to life on our own. We start to gain all the “grown up” things: debit/credit cards, a job, technology, etc. A while ago, I wrote a blog about how the students each […]

College: There’s an App for That

I love tech. There is no doubt about that. For me it is probably borderline obsession, but I have no problem with that. I have recently been thinking about how each new class of students who go to college bring new technology with them. The newest item of tech is the tablet. These range from […]

I spend a lot of time at my computer; I’ve come to accept that fact. For all people pursuing a software-engineering degree or any other computer related field, it is probably worthwhile to buy a nice desk chair. I, myself, need to go buy a new one since my old one is now in the […]
