What I learned in my first year of college

I feel like orientation day was yesterday yet I've just finished my first year of college. Sub-editing and Design taught me to avoid cliches (Sorry, Colin), but the year honestly flew by, especially the second semester.

When the First Seven Week's posted a list of the 20 places to get coffee on campus I took it as a personal challenge, so I pulled fellow Journalism and New Media student Liam (https://winterishereblog.wordpress.com/), and occasionally HPSS student Andrew, with me on a coffee quest to try all of them.
