Nobody Puts Baby in a Corner

Even if you’re not willing to admit it, being an upperclassman in college makes everyone feel a little more important. You’re experienced in studying (read: cramming) for midterms, your major has been declared and you know exactly which classes to take (and which professors to avoid). Being older means you’re the wise one, the one […]

It is an annual meeting of academics, professionals, students, and rockhounds that gather to learn about new geological research in the Commonwealth. It was a special trip for me as two of […]

DVL: Dermatology, Venereology & Leprosy

After the psychiatry department, I was assigned to the DVL department.

Apparently, it stands for Dermatology, Venereology & Leprosy. Interestingly, when I searched ‘Dermatology, Venereology […]
