My name is Jacqueline O’Hara, and I’m currently a freshman trying to figure out this crazy transition from high school to college. Originally from Berryville, Virginia, I spend most of my time writing short story collections and scouting out dogs on campus to pet. For me, college is a dream come true – especially since my dream is to become an English professor. I guess that means I’m never leaving school, but for now I’m trying to enjoy everything being a student has to offer.
Hi, I’m Aaron! I’m a freshman from Fairfax Station (so yeah, I’m from NOVA). I hope to major in communication, and eventually intern and write for magazines. I couldn’t be happier to be at Christopher Newport University, or to share my experiences here with you as I navigate my life as a Captain!
I’m Madison, and I’m a political junkie, #CommNerd and a Captain navigating life’s waters. Follow along as I share what makes me tick and how Christopher Newport University has been one of the greatest decisions I’ve made. With a love for sarcasm and life’s little things, I try to put my own spin on things.
