Being a conservative on a college campus is one of the most terrifying experiences. Speaking up in class could get you stares, a bad grade, or worse, even sent to the administration. There is a lot more of us on college campuses than one might think, but that does not make it any easier to speak our thoughts in a crowd of liberals.

To help defend yourself and keep you updated on important issues that might get thrown at you, here are 10 conservatives you should be following on Twitter to help your days go a bit smoother (with some added humor here and there).

1. Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro)

Editor in Cheif at The Daily Wire, along with being the host of his own show, "The Ben Shapiro Show," Ben Shapiro has all the knowledge someone might need when it comes to defending conservative issues. You might be familiar with the phrase, originally coined by him, "Facts don't care about your feelings." He is incredibly intelligent on a wide variety of topics, and works with young conservatives all across college campuses, delivering speeches and empowering them to always stand up for what they believe is right (so long as it is backed by facts).

2. Steven Crowder (@scrowder)

Host of his own show, "Louder With Crowder," Steven Crowder is most recently known for his viral segments called, "Change My Mind." Crowder goes around to different college campuses and public spaces and sits down to have real and authentic talks with people who are not crazed by mob mentality at marches. Crowder also does a wide amount of political statements through comedy, which can reach a younger base such as cross-dressing to go test Planet Fitness's policy on transgender people.

3. Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog)

Writer for The Daily Wire, Matt Walsh gives the Catholic approach to many political issues in today's society. While some people find him a bit extreme, he does not seem to really care and stands strong in what he believes. Walsh does a great job at showing people why Catholics should fall to be more conservative, and how Catholics should view and interpret different political stances in our American Government today.

4. Kassy Dillon (@KassyDillon)

Kassy Dillon is the founder of the online website Lone Conservative. She also contributes to Campus Reform, The Hill, The Daily Wire, and many others. Kassy is one of the most amazing conservative leaders for women today. She takes absolute pride in her work, Israel, and her passion for college conservatives to have a voice on campus. She is open to civil dialogue, and loves a good twitter thread or two.

5. Lone Conservative (@LoConservative)

Naturally, to follow Kassy Dillon is her very own start-up Lone Conservative. Lone Conservative was created by a college student for college students. That is why it is named "Lone Conservative." It is for all of the conservatives on college campuses who feel like they are entirely alone in their views. It is a great site for opinion pieces and some news, from actual college contributors.

6. The Reagan Battalion (@ReaganBattalion)

The Reagan Battalion is a news source with a conservative perspective to it. While this falls into a more news and business type category, The Reagan Battalion is incredibly interactive with their followers and is great for getting information and knowing where conservatives like yourself would typically stand on these issues. It is a great source for information.

7. Austen Fletcher (@fleccas)

Best known for his viral internet videos "Fleccas Talks," Fletcher gives a comedic spin to finding out the Lefts ideas and stances by going out into the crowds of their marches and interviewing people. He is great for opinions and funny jokes on certain issues that he just finds outrageously ridiculous. If you are looking for a good laugh, but also informative videos watch some "Fleccas Talks."

8. Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11)

Founder and Executive Director of Turning Point USA (TPUSA), Charlie Kirk is just another landmark conservative that everyone must follow. One of his biggest platforms is supporting capitalism and conservatism among college campuses. He does just this through his organization TPUSA. Ever seen a "Socialism Sucks" or "Big Government Sucks" pin on someone's book bag or a sticker on their computer, you have him to thank for it.

9. Turning Point USA (@TPUSA)

One again, naturally, Charlie Kirk's successful organization must follow him on this list of must follow accounts. TPUSA is a big organization on college campuses the supports capitalism and small government. It influences thousands of college students a year and is a great way to get involved while also advocating for things you believe in.

10. Tomi Lahren (@TomiLahren)

Everyone is most likely exhausted of hearing her name, but we have to give Tomi some credit! Tomi is a Fox News contributor, and is most widely known for her highly opinionated "Final Thoughts." While she can seem a bit intense from time to time and can say some things not everyone agrees with, I have to give her credit because she was one of the first conservative women I looked up to when I started to become more involved in politics. Tomi knows what she is saying, and thinks more about reason and sticks true to herself.

Everyone has their own list of people they think are the best, these are mine. They have been the most influential to me, and I hope they can be influential to you as well. Being conservative is not always the easiest thing in college, but together we can all work to make America pretty awesome.

Austin Alexander Burridge, Volunteer Advocate, Shares 3 Great Reasons to Volunteer and Help Others

Sometimes it's easy for someone to adopt a "me, me, me" attitude. While focusing on oneself, a person may feel nice in the moment, but serving and helping others will bring lasting benefits. While there are many great reasons to serve and help others, there are three universal truths that resonate with volunteers around the globe.

Austin Alexander Burridge's 3 Reasons to Volunteer:

1. Accomplishment

Often, people fall into a trap of focusing on themselves when they are feeling down. Maybe someone did not get a job they wanted. Or perhaps a person gets dumped by an expected lifelong companion. Maybe someone feels they have underachieved after looking at Facebook and seeing great things a high school classmate has accomplished. When feeling down, helping others is a proven way to improve one's mood and attitude, and it can provide a sense of pride and accomplishment. The act of giving to those in need is an inherently good action and leaves people with a wonderful feeling of joy.

2. Gratitude

One can become more appreciative of life by serving others that have less. Whether volunteering at a soup kitchen, visiting the elderly at an assisted living center, or helping families after a natural disaster, service enables people to be grateful for what they have. Seeing people who have fewer advantages, especially those who are spirited and thankful for small things, allows one to realize just how fortunate he/she is in life.

3. Friendships

Volunteering is a great way to build meaningful friendships, not only with other volunteers but also with those who are served. One of the most profound and fascinating aspects of these relationships is how volunteers will learn from those served and vice versa. As these special bonds are built, they lead to impactful connections that last for years to come.

Of course, these are just a few reasons to volunteer and serve others. One can never go wrong by helping others as opposed to merely focusing on oneself. Volunteering invariably and inevitably contributes to personal growth, development, and satisfaction.

About Austin Alexander Burridge: Helping others has been of paramount importance to Austin, and as a part of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), Austin gave back to the community around him. He also has participated in annual peanut butter drives, The Minnesota Sandwich Project for the Homeless and collected canned goods for local food shelters. Additionally, Austin has a passion for the environment, which he pursued when visiting the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador, and the Amazon Rain Forest while studying at the School of Environment Studies, which investigates ecological systems and their sustainability

American Or Christian?

Can you really be both?

This is a thought that has lingered in my mind for a very long time.

Personally, I hate news and politics. It's depressing and it seems like both parties (and people in general) just don't get it. Political conversation gets on my ever-loving nerves and literally gets me down in the dumps for the day.

I just simply don't watch it anymore. There is too much negativity.

That doesn't mean that I am uniformed. I am not advocating for ignorance or anything like that. I prefer to read and figure out my information from sites "in the middle."

As I was eating dinner with my wife the other day we started talking about the new Abortion laws in Alabama and Georgia. As a Christ-follower and a staunch defender of Biblical inerrant, I detest abortion.

Before you read any farther, you must understand something: This article is not about my defense of my beliefs regarding hot topics like abortion or homosexuality. I do not have the time to write about said topics now. I am just asking you to accept what I believe for the sake of the article.

But, anyway, these abortion bills. I can make a pretty good case that they are Constitutional because they are protecting the Life (one of the Rights given to American Citizens) from others. Yes, I know the arguments against said point but continue with me please.

This led our conversation to talk about Homosexual marriage, something that I am against as well. And not just because of Leviticus but because of the New Testament as well.

But, shaking my head, I said something that my wife seemed to agree with:

"As a Christian, I know it's wrong and I cannot agree with it. As an American, I see no reason why it should be illegal. Unless your choices infringe someone's Rights, you should be free to do what you wish (technically speaking)."

This is my dilemma. Well, actually it's not a dilemma. I know that I am a Christian before I am an American. I love this country greatly, and I know how blessed I am to be born here. For all the hate this country gets (and some of it is deserved) and all the problems we have (and we have a lot), we are shoulders above other countries in many ways. I am so thankful for all the men and women who have served to protect me and keep me safe. I'm thankful for a lot of things. And I am proud to be an American.

But my identity in Christ comes first. This is why I do not get into politics much. I don't really care at the end of the day. Because while America has been blessed, we still have work to do here. And this is not my forever home. This is not where I will spend eternity.

I try and respect everyone's opinions, and I earnestly try to love everyone, even when they trash and disrespect my beliefs and convictions. But I must put my call to Christ about anything that has to do with this nation. I will pray for ALL our leaders because I was told to do so (I prayed for President Obama when he was in office). And I will be here to support this nation. But I cannot put it above Christ's commands.
