As a rising junior, this summer has felt like the last block of free time I can expect to enjoy before having to worry about things like "jobs" and "the real world". My family therefore decided to take a last grand vacation through Europe. It was quite the adventure and if you want to hear all about it, you should head on over to the Olinsider or my personal blog. I'm sure "work hard, play hard" is a mantra that Olin students can all appreciate, but there are traits like "dedication", "defying the odds", and "passion" that they understand, too. So why the picture of the funny car?
