Farewell T-bird Financial Aid Advisors. Hello ASU.

Incredible India Welcome

by Kyle Morgan, Guest Writer Last night I was flying down a barely paved road in Southern India at speeds that would make most people faint especially when you think of the quality of roads we were on.  I was with three friends that I had recently met, with maybe thirty words of common language […]

Incredible India Wedding

by Kyle Morgan, Guest Writer (continued…) The highlight of my trip to India was being apart of the wedding of Dr. Megha & Dr. Madhukesh, Sunil’s sister-in-law and soon to be brother-in-law.  When Sunil had first invited me to the wedding, I expected to be the outsider looking in, watching everything but not really participating […]

Motorcycle Adventures in the South of France

Nice to Fondue: A Preamble to Adventure by David J. Roman, Guest Writer It was back: that wheedling pressure somewhere above the heart and between the temples.
