13 Things That Will Happen To You This St. Patty's Day At WVU

Saint Patrick's Day is a holiday to celebrate those who are Irish. But here at West Virginia University we celebrate it whether your Irish or not. For WVU it's just excuse for us to go out a drink. We honestly don't need an excuse, but it helps us feel better about ourselves. Bars and Clubs run crazy specials that you can't beat. Here are 13 things that will happen to you at WVU this St. Patty's Day.

1. Your friends will wake you up early.

Bars are open at 7 a.m. around here in Morgantown. So you know what that means...of course we all have to be lined up at the door before 7 a.m. We might also have to pregame, the pregame.

2. If you're 21, you will be at Fat Daddy's.

21 and up, you are definitely starting your day off at Fat's and then will work your way elsewhere. Who can beat the 25 cent green beers and the breakfast buffet?

3. You will somehow end up at a frat.

Somehow, someway you always make it to one of the popping frat parties. You might end up their huffing and puffing, but you will make it.

4. End up having pictures on your phone that you can't explain.

You will wake up in the morning with pictures of you and your friends and wonder how they got their. Either with random people you made friends with or an embarrassing video of your friend dancing on the table.

5. Beads will be around your neck

Some point in the day, someone will put beads around your neck. You don't question it, you accept it and move forward.

6. You might get an open container from the cops.

Cops are everywhere St. Patrick's Day. So be careful where you walk to with an open container.

7. Random people will shove unknown liquids down your throat.

People will walk up to you and offer you sips of their drink. Everyone here at WVU gets happy drunk and then become the best of friends.

8. You might puke and rally.

Chances of this happening are always a 50/50. Depends when you start, what you mix and how you pace yourself.

9.You will drink out of a foreign object.

You will drink out of a cone, shot ski, beer bong or some other questionable things.

10. Someone will be in a leprechaun outfit.

You always see that one guy in a leprechaun outfit. From acting like he knows how to Irish step dance, to running down the street from the cops.

11. The basic girls will be wearing "Kiss Me I'm Irish" shirts

This shirt never fails. There will be about 50% of the girls wearing these and the kicker is half them aren't even Irish.

12. Your night will end at Jimmy Johns or Sandwich U.

Happens to the best of us. We get hungry and want something right then and there so we end up and one of the two best places to get munchies at.

13. You might kiss an alligator.

Here in West Virginia, there are a lot of different wildlife some students have.

These are some things that will happen to you this Saint Patrick's Day here at WVU. Embrace it because this is a once in a lifetime experience. Every year there is something new that can be added to this list. Here at WVU, nothing surpises you these days.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

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.
