The 10 Best Things About Coming Back To Ball State University

Welcome back, friends.

The 10 Best Things About Coming Back To Ball State University
US News

Admit it, we all missed Ball State and Muncie while we were gone. There are just some special feelings you can't recreate back home. It doesn't matter if you're from a big city or a small town, there is just something to be said for being with your BSU friends in Muncie.

1. Those far away friends

Even 45 minutes to an hour seems so far in the summer after about nine months of them being maybe five minutes from you all the time and having them that close again is awesome.

2. BSU landmarks


If you don't smile when you see Benny or Frog Baby again for the first time, you must be heartless because they are adorable and I smile every time I see them and I'm a senior.

3. Free movies


Movies are expensive in 2018 and you have to give it to Filmworks for putting out their schedule ahead of time so you know exactly what you should spend your money on either at the movies or at Redbox. Plus their selection is always really great.

4. Free food


There is so much free food at BSU it's crazy and our stomachs and wallets really appreciate it.

5. Emails


Okay this will get annoying after a week, but if you're like me and hardly anyone texts you, it's kinda fun to seem so needed. That may seem a little sad, but ya know *shrugs*

6. Muncie food


Scotty's, Brothers, Puertas, Insomnia, Cousin Vinny's.... pick your poison.

7. Late night deliveries


Getting a little bit of money and spending it on a 2am Insomnia delivery is my aesthetic.

8. Entertainment


There's so much to do! Filmworks, Late Night, BSU Theatre & Dance shows (shameless self-plug), shows at Emens, Sursa performances, Muncie Civic is only a bus ride and a quick walk away (another shameless self-plug), not to mention so much more!

9. New friends


I honestly don't think I've met many people at BSU who have a bad attitude. You can always make a new class buddy or someone to hold a door open for you when your arms are full.

10. Knowing it's a great stepping stone

If you're anything like me and love your major so much, at someone point in your freshman year, you said something along the lines of, "I just can't wait to graduate and do what I actually want to be doing." Every year I come back to BSU, I'm reminded I'm that much closer to not coming back anymore. It's bittersweet, but I know I've learned great things from every single person I've had an interaction with here and that is not something everyone can say.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
