  • A Very Appley Weekend!

    A Very Appley Weekend!

    Everything about this weekend just screamed “Apples!!!” Friday I went apple picking (in the pouring rain!) with Speech and Hearing Club. We had a ton of fun and the Orchard actually donated 2 1/2 bushels of apples to us! Despite getting soaked, it was fun to get off campus and out into the orchard with people [...]

  • Deaf Awareness Week

    Kate on Kate's Home Away From Home
    These past few weeks I keep asking myself “Why, why, why didn’t I take American Sign Language sooner?!” If I can recommend anything at UVM, it is the sign language program. It is a common interest among many students in my Communication Sciences major, but people take ASL for a billion different reasons. Most of [...]

    I'm a Ju...Senior?!
    Kate on Kate's Home Away From Home
    Senior year?! It seems like just yesterday I was taking campus tours, receiving more college brochures than my mailbox could hold, and filling out what seemed like an endless amount of applications. And now here I am, three years of my undergraduate career behind me and what I know will be the quickest year yet, senior [...]

  • It's Still Light Out!

    Kate on Kate's Home Away From Home
    Well, Vermont may be a little behind on the whole “Spring season” thing, with the occasional snowfalls and below freezing weather, but if there is one thing I love about this time of year, it’s the daylight hours! It no longer gets dark at four in the afternoon!! Tuesdays and Thursdays I am in class [...]

  • Beginning a New Semester

    Kate on Kate's Home Away From Home
    Just this past Tuesday, winter break came to a close and we kicked off a new semester here at UVM. Thinking back to mid-December, smack dab in the middle of finals week, I looked forward to the month break I had ahead of me filled with relaxation, catching up with friends, and being able to [...]

  • The Home Stretch

    The Home Stretch

    Only one more week of classes? What!? Everyone is back on campus after our much needed Thanksgiving break! This year we got a whole week off! Of course we had to sacrifice a few holidays throughout the semester such as Columbus Day and Veteran’s Day, but it was definitely nice to drive home and be able [...]

  • I haven't forgotten you

    Kate on Kate's Home Away From Home
    Let me just start by saying how sorry I am for the lack of blogging this past month! My laptop was being silly and not letting me sign onto the blogging site. It never occured to me that it could be my computer and not my log-in information. I like to think that my macbook [...]

  • I forgot how much I love fall in Vermont

    I forgot how much I love fall in Vermont
    Kate on Kate's Home Away From Home
    I’m finally starting to accept the fact that summer is truly over. I can no longer escape homework, exams, getting up early, and of course the cooler weather. Last week was my first opportunity to “relax” this semester. No exams, no projects. Of course that isn’t entirely true, because in college there is always something you should be [...]

  • Kickin' It Off

    Kate on Kate's Home Away From Home
    Welcome to my new blog!! I suppose I don’t even need the word “new,” seeing as this is my first blog…EVER! Of course I jumped on the myspace bandwagon in middle school and, like every other college student, I’m a facebook addict, but I’ve never had a true blog before. I feel like I have [...]
