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.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
