Happy Founders’ Day to all my #KappaAlphaPsi favs. #J5 #CrimsonandCream
Best of 2018 part 1: For The People (just a few of them). To say this year has been easy would be lying— my faith was certainly put to the test. I was pushed, stretched, and challenged in so many ways. I experienced some amazing highs and a lot of lows. A good chunk of the year I was in a funk I didn’t think i’d escape, but God. I leave 2018 whole, happy, encouraged, motivated and inspired all due to some of the amazing people I met. Thank you to each of you for helping me grow this year. #Bestof2018 #thisismyyear #Bye2018 #NYE

Tis the season for scholarship, dress-up and gifting. Last night I had an amazing time with my sorors at @apalachinalumnaedst Give the Gift of Education Gala. Kudos to the planning committee, it was truly a beautiful event! Thanks to all of the Binghamton University students that attended, hope you enjoy your final exam gift. You got this! #DST1913 #RedAlert #MyBlackIsBeautiful #itsbeginningtolookalotlikechristmas
That time when you are featured on the news for being joyous, wild and free in your Ugly Sweater. It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. #uglysweatercontest #WeAreBinghamton
A Queen, wild and free. #symbolrightnow
I woke with the urge to share, so here it goes! 🤷🏽‍♀️😚 • • My work home— @mrcbinghamton. I am indeed so proud of what you’ve become in such a short time. It’s only been a year and we’ve had thousands of visits, opened our prayer room, hosted a plethora of cultural organization programs, expanded our student employment opportunities, added collaborations with UCC and Fleishman, added electronic check-in, and so much more. • • Bing we’re open from 9am-12am for Final Exam Extended Hours, today through Dec. 14th— come study with us. 📝📚📓💯 • • And, to all my favorite MRC & Bing alumni, come back and visit. You will love this place. 😉💚 • #WeAreBinghamton #ForTheCulture
