11 Things You Miss About Furman On Break
Emma Gibney

Living on campus definitely has its perks. When you go to Furman, you get those perks all four years. Unfortunately, you get used to all of the comforts that go with living on campus, and you don't have those at home. Sure, the first week at home is great, but after a while, you start to miss the things that make living on campus so great.

1. Being in walking distance of food

I mean more than what's in my fridge.

2. Having most of my friends in one place

No having to drive all over town and fight traffic just to see someone that isn't family.

3. Not having my parents call me when I'm out past 9

The freedom of living in your own space just gets better when you don't do it for a while.

4. Having more than 3 friends

Let's be honest, how many friends did you actually stay in touch with from high school?

5. Cookout being 5 minutes away

Hello, Cookout tray

6. Starbucks being 5 minutes away

Oh, frappuccino how I miss you.

7. Basically, all food being closer

If I want something not in my fridge, I actually have to drive a considerable distance. That is not okay.

8. Not having to tip toe after 10 o'clock

The fear of waking a parent up is so real.

9. Being able to binge watch without guilt

"How many episodes have you watched today?"

"11, Mom. I've watched 11 episodes."

10. Netflix shows that you watch with your roommates

Because you can't cheat on them and watch without them. It's just not cool.

11. Making dinner with your roommates and pitching in

Although, Mom's cooking is hard to beat.

Overall, enjoy your time at home, but also realize that it will be over soon. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing is up to you.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

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.
