    Far From Home

    Far From Home

    Starting college is the first time that many students will be away from their homes, their friends and their families for months at a time. It is a transition that can cause homesickness and a sense of isolation. One thing that can make this adjustment even more difficult, is when college is not just in a different city or state, but in a completely foreign country. This week, my guest is Tahmeed Hafeez, a senior at Brown University. He grew up in Bangladesh, yet he has been attending school abroad for the past eight years.

    Welcome back to season three of All Nighters! Our host, Lindsey Krill, will be talking to other college students about the things that keep us up at night.

    At Brown University, there is an online romance forum that has a match-making success rate so rare, it’s almost mythical. Brown Bear Admirers is a Facebook page where students post messages and anonymous compliments inquiring about the relationship status of fellow students. This week, I’m sitting down to talk with Carrie Shao and Jordan Fox. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, they’re here to tell me the story of how a single message created a lasting relationship.

    What is…a College Jeopardy Champion?

    What is…a College Jeopardy Champion?

    It can sometimes feel like there isn’t enough time in the day to go to class, work on papers, study for exams and still have a social life. Somehow, Dhruv Gaur, a junior at Brown University, managed to do all of this while preparing for and winning the popular game show “Jeopardy!” when he was just a freshman.  He holds the title of the 2018 College Champion and was invited back to the Tournament of Champions this past November. This week, Gaur sits down to tell us what being on “Jeopardy!” and going viral as a result has been like.

    When Grief Comes Calling

    When Grief Comes Calling

    Note: This episode contains descriptions of death and depression.

    It’s easy to get caught up in the everyday life of being a student. There’s always the next paper to start, midterm to study for, and Friday night out with friends to plan. Every once in a while, however, events at home or in our outside life happen that snap us out of the student mindset and put everything into perspective. For college senior Roxy, a series of unexpected deaths and injuries began happening her sophomore year and continued for much of her time at Brown. On this episode, she talks about what it was like being away from home, which left her removed from her family and largely alone to struggle through the aftermath.

    Life After Death: Part 1

    Life After Death: Part 1

    Note: This episode contains descriptions of schizophrenia and suicide. 

    Suicide is the 10th most common cause of death in America, yet it is the second most common among college-aged individuals. More than half of students have had suicidal thoughts and 10.5% have seriously considered attempting suicide. Alarmingly, these numbers continue to rise every year. 

    For Melissa Antonia Perez, suicide is anything but a statistic. In 2017, her older brother, Andrew, died by suicide when he was just 20 and Melissa was a college sophomore. Melissa sits down to tell me how she has dealt with his death and what her life has been like ever since.

Heartwarming and insightful

After listening to the “Life After Death” episodes, I knew this podcast was going to be my new go-to during early morning commutes. As a college student living with mental illness myself, I found All Nighters to offer honest, refreshing perspective that other podcasts found quite difficult to capture. The stories about love, loss, stress, and family are unique and genuine, and the host has a wonderful gift for storytelling. I highly recommend this podcast for anyone curious about the triumphs and struggles young people face at school or just looking for a new way to pass the time at home!
