11 Types OF Emails In Every College Student's Inbox

7. Emails from professors- Tell us if grades are in or if a class is canceled. Otherwise, it can probably wait until we get to class.

11 Types OF Emails In Every College Student's Inbox

As spring cleaning is upon us and the semester is almost over, I decided to clean out my email inbox this week. I realized as a college student I get a lot of different types of emails and some are important while others, I delete immediately (or mean to delete and have them sit in my inbox for months, which is why I have so much to clean up at the end of each semester). For all my college students, these are the 11 most common emails I have in my inbox.

1.Emails from your academic department office

These are always opened, skimmed and then kept because they have important information in them, but by the end of the semester you realized you never went back and you have 50 of them in your inbox.

2. Emails from the university's official email

They keep you informed about what is going on at your school, but it is kind of repetitive considering the same information is everywhere else on campus too.

3. Emails from the university police department

Basically, they tell you where you can and can’t park.

4.Google Docs invites

They way every college student does a group project. Whoever creates it has basically signed up to be the group leader.

5. LinkedIn notifications

They send me every notification from my profile I barely even have to check the actual profile.

6. Assignment submission emails

That satisfying “ding” after submitting an assignment is one of the best emails you get as a student.

7. Emails from professors

Tell us if grades are in or if a class is canceled. Otherwise, it can probably wait until we get to class.

8. Work emails

Just as important as school emails but come less frequently.

9. Student organization emails

Thank you for the reminder about the meeting tomorrow because I sure didn’t remember (especially when they only happen once a month)

10. Shopping emails

Why did I give Bath and Body Works my email after that candle sale? I never shop there and they email me every day at least. The last thing I need is another shopping email.

11. Junk emails

Anything that does not fit into the above 10 categories or that end up in my spam folder.

Best of luck for the end of the semester and hope this inspired you to clean out yu inbox because, after 4 months, it probably needs to be organized.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

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.
