Every major or department has its own unique phrases or places that students know about that define them, and the theatre department is no different. A lot of these could probably apply to theatre majors anywhere, but OSU theatre kids will definitely relate.

1. Rehearsal doesn't REALLY start until the bats show up.

2. Lunch in the greenroom.

3. Actually, every meal in the greenroom because you basically spend your whole life there.

4. Late night rehearsals in the basement.

5. Working in the scene or costume shop to help with shows.

6. Reading more plays than you know what to do with.

7. Rushing to memorize your lines for a scene or monologue (because what college student doesn't procrastinate?)

8. Plenty of one on one time to rehearse with professors.

9. Drama within the theatre (we're actors, we're dramatic people, it happens).

10. Having the "Why are you even going to college if you're just getting a degree in theatre?" conversation with people whenever you tell them your major.

11. Bonding with the cast and crew during a show, and becoming more and more like a family as time goes by.

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.

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.
