10 Ways To Stay In Touch With College Friends Over Summer Break!

After spending an entire year with your friends at college, going on summer break can make things hard. You just spent a year getting to know these people and now you have to spend three months without those friends, but there are always chances to see each other over the summer. Here is a list of 10 ideas of how you can stay in touch!

1. Plan a vacation together

Yes, I understand that this may be hard because of money and time, but it doesn't have to be a big, expensive vacation. Maybe just trip to a water park or the beach for a few days!

2. Use Skype!

This is a great way to keep in touch over video chat! It is a great opportunity to actually see each other and you can do so many things over Skype like playing games or watching a movie!

3. Use Snapchat!

This is another great tool because it gives you the chance to send each other silly videos and pictures of yourself without taking up to much time! Maybe you are unable to Skype one week, Snapchat can help you and you can be yourself!

4. Start a Traveling Notebook!

This is a great way to stay in touch! You can tell each other what's going on in your life through a notebook and you can even write joint stories!

5. Visit Your Hometowns!

This is a great way to see where your friends live and it is a great way to see what they like to do for fun in their hometown and what their favorite hang out spots are!

6. Start a Joint Blog

By doing this you can help others who are going through the same problems as you and your friends! You can offer advise while fixing your withdrawal from friends!

7. Plan a Trip to School!

You can all go back to your school together and see what it is like there during the summer break. While there you can visit all your favorite spots! Maybe you have a favorite ice cream place, you can all go together!

8. Mail Personal Packages!

You can send each other packages with everyone's favorite candies and other items inside! It's a great way to show each other that you are thinking of one another and that you miss them!

9. Plan a Bookclub!

Send each other some of your favorite summer reads and start a mini book club! Then when you have your Skype dates, you can discuss your favorites parts of the books and how you thought the one character sounded cute!

10. Schedule Phone Calls

People in our generation hate talking on the phone, they would rather text, but you can't tell someones emotion through texting. You can't make the same connection like you would if you just spoke on the phone. So, break out of your comfort zone and talk on the phone, even if its only for 10 minutes!

All of these tips can be used by anyone! They are great ways to stay in touch with each other and let everyone in your friend group know that you are thinking about one another and that you miss each other. Have a great rest of your summer and get ready to see your friends in a few months!!

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.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
