10 Reasons Why Small Schools Rock

Or in other words, 10 reasons to brag why I love my school.

10 Reasons Why Small Schools Rock
Morgan Phillips

After going to not one, but two smaller schools, I think it's safe to say I'm qualified to say why they ROCK!

I've never gone to a large school, not even in high school, so I could never actually compare them, but I can give you all the positives of going to a tiny school so that you can decide how great they can be for yourself.

1. It's not hard to make friends - especially since there's probably only 5-15 people to a classroom at once.

2. Professors will know if you miss class, so you'll feel more inclined to go!

3. You get classes you want and don't have to fight over them because there's not that many students.

4. You can play a sport in each season! (For me, it's soccer, basketball, and tennis!!)

5. You can also join as many clubs as you want - but you might be sucked into being a leader! (Which isn't all that bad for your resume.)

6. You know basically everyone, so you'll always see a friend everywhere you go, whether it be the library, lunch, or just chilling in a sitting area.

7. Professors know you for YOU and will help you succeed in class & in your career.

8. Alumni associations are great, so free stuff!!! (Even though they might beat you in alumni games.)

9. Lunch lines are never that busy, so you can get in and out if you need to.

10. Most smaller schools have a religious affiliation so you literally get to have class to learn about Our Savior!! How great is that?

I've come up with a few reasons why small schools are so great and I could probably think of a million more, but I won't annoy you too much with bragging about how I love my school! Every school is different and has it's own pros/cons so it's important to know what environment you feel the most comfortable in, and to make sure you're not settling when choosing your future college. It can and will be the best four years of your life.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

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.
