10 Quotes Every Student Needs To Hear At The Start Of A New Semester

At the start of every new semester students are filled with conflicting emotions and feelings. Happiness, anxiousness, frustration, eagerness, confusion and enjoyment are all feelings and emotions that flood the brains of college students in the first week or so at the start of a new gamut of classes, friends and experiences. In order to combat these extreme feelings, here are 10 quotations that every college student needs to read:

1. "In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can." -Niko Kazantzakis

This is so important for everyone in everything we do.

2. "A little progress each day adds up to big results." -Satya Nani

Even though it may seem that that what we do in one day is not a lot, it does add up and amount to a lot in the end!

3. "It's never too late to get your sh*t together."


4. "Don't stop until you're proud."

I really love this.

5. "May your choices reflect your hopes and not your fears." -Nelson Mandela

This is beautiful, just beautiful.

6. "If you’re always trying to be normal you’ll never know how amazing you can be.” -Maya Angelou

Normalcy doesn't always allow for creativity. Keep this in mind.

7. "Humility is not thinking less of yourself. It’s thinking of yourself less." -C.S. Lewis

C.S. Lewis never ceases to amaze me.

8. "A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there."

Something that is familiar and feels comfortable may not allow us to be our best selves.

9. "Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow"

This is so important in choosing how we spend our days.

10. "Any thing is possible if you've got enough nerve" -J.K. Rowling

This is the perfect quote to end with.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
