Even the Bureau of Labor Statistics is confused about your employment situation

“Say you’re a part-time barista, part-time Uber driver, when-you-really-need-the-money-time IKEA-furniture-assembler, what kind of employed are you? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one asking the question: The Bureau of Labor Statistics is confused too.”

The best personal finance books for recent college grads

“If you’re getting your college grad a gift of money, you might want to include a book on how to put that present to good use. Financial planning might not be a priority — 70 percent of grads are finishing school with significant debt.”



Hartford Courant

Lucian Wintrich Uproar Pops UConn's Political Bubble

"But an education is incomplete without friction. And an education is not an education if the content is curated toward a single political stance."



The Arts Paper Krikko

'You Gotta Know What You're Doing:' A Trip to the Hill Museum of Arts

Hartford Courant PERSONAL ESSAYS


  Great People Are Touchstones Of My UConn Experience

"I am proud of UConn, not in its stadiums, but in its offices and hallways. So much of my education isn't represented in the glossy pages of an admissions booklet — I'm making my own brochure full of the unexpected relationships I've formed."


Graduating With ADD And A Great Resume

"I consider uncovering my disability and learning how to manage it as genuine a success as my internships or grades. When I imagine you looking at only how I appear on the page, it feels like an incomplete picture of me."
