"It's Always Yummy in Philadelphia"

For all of us college students out there who hardly ever have two pennies to rub together, there comes a time ever year that has us all overly excited…and that’s Restaurant Week! For two weeks, once every fall and spring semester, over 130 restaurants offer three course meals for the fairly low price of $35. We’re not talking about the mediocre food that you may have encountered in your high school cafeteria; no these are five star, gourmet restaurants with delicious and delectable menu options that never fail to satisfy. My friends and I usually use this opportunity to try...

USciences Olympics

Every year USciences Student Government Association hosts our own Olympic games. This gives all student groups on campus an opportunity to participate in over 15 events to earn money for their organization.

Congratulations to the Patriots on the victory. Now what you're going to talk about depends on what you focus. Some focused on the halftime show and now want a mechanical lion or whatever it is. Others switched...

Interprofessional Education (IPE)

This semester I had the opportunity to take an interprofessional education course at the University of Pennsylvania.

This course included nursing students from University of Pennsylvania's School of Nursing, dental students from University of Pennsylvania's School of Dental Medicine and pharmacy students from USciences. The course was a mixture of lectures, and interdisciplinary group presentations. For my evidence based group project, I was paired with a nurse anesthetist. It was so interesting to hear about her background and...
