New year, new bloggers!

Ever wondered what it’s like to be a Pioneer? Want to know how hard you have to study? What dorm life is like? Where the best places are hang out or eat in Lexington? Or, how its possible to balance school work and extracurricular activities?

You’ve come to the right place. We’re excited to share with you our eight new bloggers for the 2012-13 academic year who will hopefully answer all of these questions, and more:
