13 Reasons Why You Always Wanted To Attend PCA From 'Zoey 101'

Too bad it wasn't a real school.

13 Reasons Why You Always Wanted To Attend PCA From 'Zoey 101'

Let's face it; if you grew up watching "Zoey 101," you've wanted to go to Pacific Coast Academy (PCA) at some point in your life. Between the scenic campus and beautiful dorms, I can definitely say that I've always wanted to attend. Here are some reasons why it seemed like the coolest school around.

1. The dorms.

The dorms shown at PCA definitely set the bar really high for when I moved into college.

2. The lounge.

The student lounge was always a popular place to be. Zoey and her friends had some of their greatest adventures there.

3. It was on the beach.

I mean look at that view.

4. There was a sushi restaurant right on campus.

Sushi Rox was the coolest place to eat on campus. They even delivered and Chase was the delivery boy. Speaking of him...

5. Chase. Chase. Chase.

You always thought that Chase was the most adorable guy around. That curly black hair that made Zoey refer to him as "Fuzzy Head" made him even cuter. You always knew he had feelings for Zoey and you anxiously waited for him to finally make a move.

6. And all those other boys.

Let's not forget about all the other attractive guys that made guest appearances on the show. James Garrett, Vince Blake, etc.

7. "Jet X!"

You've always wanted to ride around campus on a turquoise, pink, or lavender motorcycle, known as a Jet X. Don't even lie to yourself and say that you didn't read "Jet X!" in the exact way they said it on the show.

8. Those little coffee carts right on campus.

They were always there whenever the students needed a little pick-me-up. After the carts were banned by Dean Rivers, the students made sure that he brought them back by starting competing coffee shops out of their dorm rooms.

9. The teachers were so chill.

Throughout the show, Zoey and her friends seemed to have barely any homework to do. The classrooms were beautiful with the nicest views of the beach.

10. Zoey and her friends were truly squad goals.

Look at that group picture. Photoshop me in right near the tree. Also, those outfits...

11. Coco was the girls' dorm adviser.

Coco was pretty much always a mess. Something was always going on with her, but fortunately food was there to help her get through all her issues.

12. They could hang out on the roof.

The boys' dorm had a place to hang out right on the roof. The beach chairs and flamingos made the roof a great spot to relax.

13. You've always wanted someone to toss you a Blix.

Blix was undeniably the most popular drink on campus. Zoey's refrigerator was always stocked with it in bottle form and there was even a Blix machine conveniently located in the lounge.

Sadly, PCA doesn't actually exist. However, some shots were filmed at Pepperdine University. And yes, I did consider applying to Pepperdine just because of that. However, I did end up choosing to attend Providence College (PC), so I guess that's pretty close.

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.
