12 Things My Dad Said When I Took Him To A Frat Party
Macie McCallum

This past weekend was family weekend at IU and a large group of my friends all invited our dads down to visit us. My dad stayed with my roommate's dad in an Airbnb and let's just say they enjoyed reliving their college days, to say the least. Friday night we all took our dads to a frat party — bold move I know. Here are just a few of the things that happened when he experienced a taste of what I do every weekend...

"Isn't there cold beer anywhere around here?"

You mean you're not used to drinking warm Natty Lights, dad?

"Let's play flippy cup!"

One thing I will give him is that my dad knows how to get a party started.

"Hi, I'm Macie's dad. Macie is my little pumpkin."

Nothing a dad loves more than bragging about his little girl... even to frat boys.

"What dirt can you give me on my daughter's boyfriend?"

This one was said more than I would have liked. Don't worry though, he didn't find any dirt.

"This guy is awesome! Whatever girl gets to marry him is a lucky lady!"

— My dad after every meeting every one of my friends. Trying to marry me off? I can't keep up.

"Play some Zac Brown Band!"

Dad was not a fan of Mo Bamba.

"I should have joined a fraternity in college..."

My dad was not one for Greek life in his day, but after experiencing it firsthand he was starting to think he might have made a mistake.

"Can we go home yet?"

Don't let him fool you, he was loving it. The social butterfly that he is, stayed out until 2 a.m. and even went home and stayed up until 3 a.m. with his roommate.

"I am HURTING this morning"

Least to say, Saturday morning he was not feeling as great as the night before.

"Should I call the 'Yuber'?"

My dad thinks it's funny to mispronounce words. He also just learned how to use Uber this weekend.

"Do we have to go out tonight?"

And after a long day of tailgating the next day, we hit the hay at 10:30 Saturday night. One night was enough for him, and for me too in my old age.

"I had the best time ever this weekend."

A weekend of reliving the glory days is never a weekend wasted. We had the best time everywhere we went. Dad's weekend is always one of my personal favorites. Time to start rallying for next year, dad!

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.

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.

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.
