When you have a lot of work but needed that nap and your roommate captured the moment. - WK #raybucknell #collegelife (CM to @dikendra.63 for the snap)

Hi I'm Ericson Etienne a sophmore computer engineering major from the U.S Virgin Islands and I'm here to say that textbooks make your back swole. If you like ebooks you're anti swole back and that's just not okay. Shame on you.

Starting the summer after my first year, I had the pleasure of working on Philip’s Connected Medical Devices Project. Philip is an extraordinary professor. Unlike most professors I have met in my entire student life, Philip has an aura that makes him very approachable. I first met him at a diversity workshop that he organized and mistook him for a graduate student. Only later did I realize he’s a professor in my department. He cares a lot about his students and try to meet with us one on one weekly just to check in on how we are doing in general and he enjoys taking all his entire group of about 10 research students out on dinners or lunches. He’s one of the reasons why I grew to love #Bucknell. I would definitely recommend joining the ENGR 290 #Ghana 🇬🇭 Trip that he will be leading Summer 2018 or taking one of his classes when he returns from sabbatical. - WK #raybucknell #undergraduateresearch

One of the questions I get asked often as an international student is if I get homesick or culture shock when I got here. Personally, I didn’t have a hard time transitioning into #bucknell and the US culture thanks to the immense support and efforts of Jennifer Figueroa, the ISS, the IEA and the Burmese student community here. I am grateful to have been able to give back as an orientation assistant in International Orientation (IO) 2016 and IO 2017 and I’m looking forward to my fourth IO experience. It has been a great opportunity to share my Bucknell story through #raybucknell and follow me at @williamwinkyaw for more updates of an engineer in the making. ‘Ray Bucknell!!! - WK

How could an international #raybucknell experience be truly #international without a picture of home, right? Even though #bucknell has long become my home away from home and I have a caring family of #bucknellians and faculty/staff including my wonderful host mom Anita Casper, Pennsylvania winters are still harsh for one who grew up in the tropics. My favorite winter escape is, without a doubt, the #goldenland #myanmar that I get to call “#home”. - WK
