10 Things I Won't Miss About Living On Campus

No more room checks or fire drills, yes!

10 Things I Won't Miss About Living On Campus
Society 19

Coming June 1st, I will officially be a home renter with my 4 roommates. Adulting feels SO good, but the best pro to this is not living on campus anymore! It's just a hassle and I will be glad to be out of that.

1. Spending $1000/month to live there.

College is expensive. But, living on campus is the most expensive part. I will be saving over half my money by living off campus actually.

2. Security.

They are constantly lurking around and we feel like we have to tiptoe around them all the time. Privacy will be nice.

3. Parking.

I was so tired of parking a mile away from my building or else I would get a ticket. I actually did get a ticket but appealed it before it got charged to my account (thank gosh).

4. Dining hall food.

Food poisoning? Heck no. I'd rather have my own kitchen and place to cook thank you very much!

5. Noise.

No longer have to hear my neighbors screaming and stomping on the floors.

6. Restrictions!

I can finally have candles, flags, curtains, and tapestries without getting a fine! Sweet.

7. Room checks.

The most ANNOYING part of on campus living. Waiting for RA's to do room checks so you can just get all of your restricted items back out.

8. Fire drills.

9/10 times these happen I am usually in the shower or taking a nap. Its absurd.

9. Terrible Wi-Fi.

I had to have my own router because nothing would ever load. It was really that bad.

10. Moving in/out.

No more taking stuff home for summer, winter, and spring break. Keeping it in one place for 2 years is going to spoil me.

This should have convinced you that your Junior year you need to live off campus. It is so much easier and just less stressful in the end.

Have a great summer!

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.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.


For as long as I can remember, I've been fat. The protagonists in the movies I've watched and the books I've read, however, have not been. . .
