What have you heard of the Agora Society? I know it's not as well known as like Phi Sig, TZE, Shakes etc.@Anonymous
hello! My friend is actually in Agora! We actually bonded because we were the few people from the South during orientation! haha. Anyways, Agora is a really, really nice society to be in! I know that all the sisters are really close but aren’t really obnoxious about it. They all are really sweet and care a lot about philanthropy as well as politics (which is what they are based on). My friend actually went to the Republican Convention this year, and her sisters supported her a ton!
where did you present ur research?@Anonymous
At the poster session with all the interns who were working at the lab this summer!
hi there! my name is sarah and i am moving from sunny california to snowy boston (im gonna die). so i was wondering what ALL the winter things like clothes etc will i need to live comfortably and not cry bc i don't know what 40 degrees feel like. thank you!@locallnative
hi! Actually, in the winter it’s more like 20 degrees. FML. Like you, I did not expect the winters to be that cold, but I found it manageable overall!
I would recommend getting a GIANT jacket like the ones that are super long and make you look like a legit snowman. Those will keep you warm and dry. Like you will need this in Boston.
Another coat I would recommend bringing is a shorter one. Something you can wear when it is not as cold. I got this Patagonia jacket in black, but they ran out of a lot of sizes. I recommend looking at the patagonia sale rn to see if they have anything in your size if you are willing to dish out some $$$.
Also, SWEATERS/LAYERS are your best friend. Srsly tho. I lived in thermals during the winter time. Target has really nice thermals and a lot of different stores will have any of these items.
Ear Warmers: MUST. They have the really cute knitted headband ones that I really like. I loved mine and wore it so so much.
Gloves: Unless you want your hands to freeze
Snow boots: MUST MUST MUST
Insulated leggings: Not a MUST, but this will also be nice to have esp. if you run.
bought a fratagonia coat during their sale, so am i a new englander yet?
