Springfield College welcome to your tape.

13 Reasons Why Springfield College Is The Best College

Hey, it's Katie. Katie Adams. Don't put down whatever device you're reading this on. I'm about to tell you my top 13 reasons why Springfield College is the best college there is. For any of you high school seniors on the fence between here and another school hopefully this article can make that decision a little easier for you. And for anyone that is a current student or an alumni here, hopefully you'll be able to relate.

1. Sweatpants school

Comfort over style any day. Athletic attire is gladly welcomed on campus and there must be some rule it's considered trying if you wear anything other than sweats, right?

2. Small campus

Bigger isn't always better in all situations. Having a smaller campus means meeting more people and shorter walks- crucial when it's torrentially down pouring or slippery thanks to black ice.

3. Always some kind of event going on

Whether it's a sports event, late night activity, or a transport, something is always happening on campus.

4. Nicest people you'll ever meet

Students and faculty you don't even know will greet you with a smile or a greeting. Everyone holds doors on campus, return the favor for others- it's obligated.

5. Great people watching spots

Whether it's cheney, the gym, your dorm room, or the union you can people watch all over campus. Personally it's one of the biggest reasons why I'm excited for the learning commons to be finished.

6. Sports teams aren't that bad

If I do recall both men's soccer and lacrosse won NEWMAC championships this year AND men's volleyball won the NCAA D3 championship, no biggie though.

7. Dogs on campus

Although dogs cannot be kept in dorm rooms unless granted special permission, there is always a dog on campus. Dogs are welcomed on campus. Always.

8. Townhouses

Townhouses mean it's the weekend. Whether it's a party, celebration, darty, or a transport the townhouses are always having something. The weekend also means late night food at the union, stopping by after the townhouses to grub on some mozzarella sticks is always a great idea.

9. MBC

No explanation is necessary for Mary-Beth Cooper, we have the best president ever. Doesn't hurt that she has the cutest dogs ever.

10. Midnight breakfast

While finals week means the near end of the semester, midnight breakfast is what we actually look forward to. There's nothing like free breakfast, surrounded by your friends, a dj, and dancing in the middle of your dining hall at midnight.

11. Sti-Yu-ka

Something only Springfield College students would know unless you've looked it up on Urban Dictionary. A week of events, some that have been around since the school opened and still continue today, and drinking- a lot of drinking.

12. One stop

Not all heroes wear capes.

13. You'll meet some of the best friends you'll ever come to know

College is a fresh start for everyone and while it feels like you're alone in this new chapter of your life in reality you're not. Surround yourself with people who share the same interest as you, encourage you to make good, and bad, decisions, can make you laugh when you want to give up and cry, and will stay up all night because you have procrastinated on an assignment. Once you find your people everything gets easier. You have four years here so spend it with good people.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
