Working in the Language Lab

Written by    Feb 9, 2017

Have you ever been to the COSI Electricity Show? You know, the one where a man with a microphone says a lot of crazy things about electricity and proceeds to make someone’s hair stand up? From a young age, I wanted to be that person up on COSI’s stage with a microphone. I might not have a microphone, but ten years later, I have found myself on COSI’s […]

One way I like to make myself feel better about my habit is to spend that time looking for internships/jobs. That’s less bad, right? It’s practical knowledge. I’ll have to do it eventually, ok? And that’s where FutureLink comes in. For those of […]

SOS, life is in shambles

Written by    Oct 27, 2016

Guys. I just had the worst shift of my entire life. And it’s only my second week of work. I’m an office assistant in my residence hall, and don’t get me wrong, it’s great. I think it’s as awesome as a minimum wage job gets. It’s convenient, I get to choose my hours, and I get to do homework while I’m sitting at the front […]

Engineering in the real world

Written by    Jul 29, 2016

I am a chemical engineering major. Despite the popularity of my major, it surprises me how many people, even some engineers, have no idea what chemical engineers do. They know it’s very math and science intense and that they usually receive high salaries but that’s about it. I can’t really say that I can describe my major much better. Yeah, I can tell you that […]
