 The Perfect Final Chapter

When I first arrived on the west coast, my only points of reference were movie scenes and posts I’d liked on Instagram. Although the opportunity to go to Los Angeles for the semester sounded exciting, the decision to finish my degree in LA was honestly a difficult choice. As a last semester senior at Syracuse, […]

The Broad is a massive public art museum in downtown Los Angeles filled with three stories of art from around the world. Surprisingly enough, the museum is free […]
