10 Reasons I'm Thankful I Go To The University Of Scranton

When choosing a college, most of us have many different options. I remember visiting a variety of campuses, trying to picture myself walking around and going to classes at each one. I didn't feel at home at any college until I visited Scranton. I could see myself here and I knew it was the place for me. I'm still glad that I made the decision to come here, and I could not imagine being anywhere else. Here are a few reasons why I am thankful that I go to the University of Scranton.

1. The campus is beautiful.

Especially when the weather is nice and the sun is shining, the campus can not compare to anywhere else. Even when it's a rainy, dreary day, the campus still looks great.

2. The people are always friendly.

Everyone is kind, holds the door open and says hi.

3. The food is great.

Coming to college, I was preparing for the worst food, but I was pleasantly surprised when I discovered how great the food is on campus. There are many options to choose from between third floor, first floor, Einstein and Bleecker Street.

4. The professors are kind and helpful.

The professors are always willing to meet with you to help you better understand the material. They want to see you do your best and succeed.

5. I have made great friends.

I'm thankful that I came here because I couldn't imagine my life without the friends I have made here.

6. It is safe.

I rarely worry about leaving my things in the library or dining hall or walking alone on campus.

7. There is always something going on.

There are always places to go or things to see either on or off campus.

8. I don't have to walk very far to get Starbucks or Dunkin'.

Let's be real: these are staples in almost all of our lives.

9. The wide variety of majors to pick from.

Most of our programs are renowned for being the best in the area.

10. I'm thankful for memories that I have made while I've been here.

They are ones that I will never forget.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

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.
