12 Things That Annoy Every UNLV Student

You already know parking's one of them.

12 Things That Annoy Every UNLV Student
Sandy Julian-Pascual

If you've been going to UNLV for more than a semester (or if you've come on campus even just to visit), you'll probably relate to at least one of these annoying things UNLV students have to deal with and come to know all too well during their time in college.

1. Skateboards

You can bet I'll make a face if you almost hit me with your skateboard.

2. Golf Carts

Let's be honest, we're all just jealous we don't get to ride in them.

3. Everything (Unnecessary) With Wheels

Will that hover board creation really get you to class that much faster? Or will it just make it very difficult for you to make friends?

4. Parking


5. Events That Take Up Our Parking Space

*Cough cough* Presidential Debate.

6. Maryland Parkway

"Why? Why must you run through the middle of the street? There's a cross walk RIGHT THERE. Use it."

7. Pamphlet People

Yes, I have registered to vote. Yes, I promise. Can I leave?

8. Religious Extremists

Please calm down with your billboard-sized posters and mega phones telling us to believe in your ideology or we'll die sinners. It makes college more stressful than it already is.

9. Construction

Thanks for making my walk to class five minutes longer.

10. Lines At Starbucks/The Coffee Bean

That would be a, "No, you can't make it to class on time AND have a caramel latte."

11. Lines at Club Lied's Elevator

If you are capable of going to the second floor on the escalator but still choose to use the elevator, just know everyone is giving you serious side eye.

12. People Who Sit Alone At Four-Person Tables

Why? Just, why?

But let's admit it: even though UNLV makes us want to hide inside our cars and cry from time to time, we all learn to love one very important thing — our home.

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.
