This American Life is a radio program out of WBEZ in Chicago that attempts to display what it is like to live an ‘American life’, complete with its dullness as well as its luster. Reporting is not done in the way we see on television or hear on more traditional …

The propensity of students to give back to their communities while in college, rarely translates after they graduate (based on my observations). It’s not because we become bad people as soon as we leave a college campus, it’s because, frankly, the opportunities aren’t as accessible and finding time between working …

As we near Finalist Day when the class of 2010 Orr Fellows will make their decisions on whether to accept an offer to join the Fellowship, I think it’s worth looking at who the Orr Fellowship is for.  Working with high growth start-ups takes a certain kind of person, and …

Wow. ROTC (Reception on the Circle) last night was unbelievable. All of the current Fellows had a great time getting to know the candidates. I left thinking – how will the board of directors narrow the 60 candidates from last night down to only 20 in the end? I wish …

One of the questions that I commonly receive from Orr Fellowship candidates is, “What types of things do you do at work?”  For most Orr Fellows this is a straight-forward question, but for me, the answer is a bit more long-winded. When I accepted my offer with the Orr Fellowship, I also accepted an offer …

As DePauw and Wabash students and alumni everywhere get ready for arguably one of the greatest sports weekends (for our schools at least), I can’t help but start feeling nostalgic. Even though I’m less than one year out of college, it’s weekends such as “Monon Weekend” that make me long …
