Often, after a long weekend of fun with friends, the reality of looming deadlines hits hard and can be overwhelming. Having spent two years here, I’ve learned the hard way that Sundays set the tone for the week ahead.
Though it’s definitely true that we need to take things week by week or day by day in life, those days or weeks cannot necessarily look the same every time.
At the time of writing this, I’m only a week into my sophomore year, but I have made a full one-eighty from last year in terms of feeling comfortable on campus. You just have to give it time and “trust the process.”
Every year, Miami has increased the cost for housing and meal plans for the incoming fall students. Not only has it been steadily increasing over the years, but it’s been increasing right below the cap.
In my short three months here, it has become evident that Miami’s creation of designated study spaces is significantly valued by its students. There is something to be said about separating where you sleep or unwind versus where you do schoolwork and study.
