      After only a five-hour drive from my home, one can be in a totally different world. In the summer prior to my sophomore year, I was privileged to travel to a village in Baja Mexico with a group of medical students that my father was training over the summer. We served those who were struggling...

    Sure, India has its share of problems with weather and pests, but yearly visits to my grandparent’s home have even made mosquitoes seem like my extended family. However, two summers ago, just when I thought nothing could surprise me, I came across the most meaningful experience of my life.  ...

However, taking a look around, there’s a lot more than just the Indy 500 in Naptown.    If you like a city atmosphere, downtown Indy is a great place to visit. Directly in the center of the...

          Last summer, my family and I took a drive up to the NP of Michigan, but made a stop along the way. We stopped in Green Bay and stayed in the Residence Inn by Lambeau Field so that we could go to the stadium and check out their newly-attained Superbowl trophy. Once we made it downstairs into...
