10 Things Every College Student Needs To Hear

Supporting us is so underrated.

10 Things Every College Student Needs To Hear

1. “You Got This!”

2. “It’s okay to take a break.”

From that paper that is due in a couple days. From that paper that is due at 11:59 tonight. From those 3 chapters that need to be read by Wednesday. TAKE A BREAK.

3. “I’m here if you need me. Like, for real.”

People seem to throw this around for fun, but every college student needs at least one person to ACTUALLY mean it. Even if they don’t take you up on it, they need to hear it.

4. “That really sucks.”

Sometimes trying to make everything better, all the freaking time, is annoying. College students want people to understand that sometimes things just REALLY SUCK. And that’s okay. It won’t suck forever.

5. "We'll celebrate this weekend."

YOU DO NOT NEED A REASON TO CELEBRATE. Getting through the week and actually going to all your classes is reason alone to celebrate. Having something to look forward to can make each class go a little bit faster.


College is hard. College students try even harder. Grades don’t always reflect how hard you’re actually trying, so having someone tell you that you’re amazing anyways is great and needed.

7. “It will be there tomorrow.”

Homework will be there, whether you do it or you don’t. Looking at the same problems or sentences can be counterproductive if you do it too long. Mental health, physical health, and happiness are all MUCH more important.

8. “Are you okay?"

This is pretty self-explanatory. People don’t genuinely ask or care often enough. It never hurts to ask someone if they are alright.

9. “I love you.”

College has a habit of putting a damper on the mood. College students, and people in general, need love. Love everybody. It changes everything.

10. “You are so much more than your grades, GPA, and any other score that they give you.”

C’s get degrees. Your GPA won’t matter unless you want to go to grad school. Even if you are going to grad school, those scores won’t matter later on. What matters? Your health. Your sanity. How you lived your life.

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.
