10 Things College Students Love

It's the little things.

1. Open parking spots.

Finding a parking spot on campus can be hell so when a spot opens up, it’s a miracle. Extra points if the parking space is close to your destination.

2. Free stuff.

T-Shirts, food, pens, lanyards, magnets, event tickets… College kids don’t care. Free stuff is always welcomed and always greatly appreciated.

3. Getting out of class early or receiving the rare “class has been cancelled” email.

No class means more naps.

4. Chicken strips/nuggets in the caf.

Some universities serve chicken strips or nuggets on the daily but unfortunately, not all of us are that lucky. When word lets out that either one of these delicious chicken entrees is being served, you better hustle and get in line before they run out.

5. Hearing the words “you can fill out an index card to use as a cheat sheet on the exam”.

Sure, cramming an entire semester's worth of information on an index card isn’t the easier thing to do but it sure can be a saving grace.

6. Refund checks.

Finally… More than $14 in your bank account.

7. Student discounts.

Before that refund check arrives, it’s hard living off of that $14. Thankfully there’s a ton of stores and restaurants that offer a student discount! Start Googling places that offer student discounts or check out this list here.

8. Quizlet.

Nothing quite compares to the feeling you get when you Google one question and find the entire quiz (along with the answers) on Quizlet.

9. Extra credit.

Extra credit opportunities are a rare occurrence in college. But you can bet that when it’s offered, most students take advantage of it.

10. Being able to go home.

College is great but it can get overwhelming. Sometimes making the drive back home for your mom’s cooking, your dad’s horrible jokes, and the opportunity to sleep in your bed is exactly what you need to rejuvenate.

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.
