10 Reasons College Is The Best Four Years
Emma Thor

People say College is the best four years and cherish those moments. I am entering my senior year of college. My three years of college has been the most memorable experiences yet. Here are the 10 reasons why college is the best four years.

1. You make lifetime friendships.

They're a five minute walk from your dorm room , willing to do movie nights or eat breakfast before class , late night at the campus dining hall.

2. Discovery of your passions.

You find your passion through the variety of clubs , taking classes outside of your major, hobbies.

3. Professors become your mentors

Professors share their experiences during class and approachable.

4. Taking classes based on your interest and electives.

For example : taking sociology classes or political science you realize you want to do social work or be in public office. taking photography classes you discover your passion for photography.

5. You appreciate the free things in college

for example: free pizza, free t-shirts come in handy when you're on a budget in college.

6. taking pictures helps cherish the memories.

Pictures could consist of sunsets from an academic building, changing of the leaves in the fall, group picture at an event.

7. exploring the college town such as hiking trails , restaurants and shopping centers.

These places will have some college discount if you present your college id.

8. getting involved on campus widens your network and appreciation for the campus.

Getting involved on campus could being a Resident Assistant , executive board member for a club, Student Government, Fraternity or Sorority, tour guide

9. Hard work pays off. If its four or more years of college in the end getting your degree will be worth it. Everyone ends their education differently.

10. You'll be sad to leave college when you graduate.

College you shaped so much as a person and without your support system you wouldn't be where you are today.

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

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.

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.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
