18 Things That SUNY Delhi Students Complain About

SUNY Delhi is a small school which makes it easy to get bored and complain.

SUNY Delhi is a small school which makes it easy to get bored and complain. But really every campus has its flaws. So, here are the top 18 things I hear Delhi students most commonly complain about.

1. Small Everything

A small town means a small campus and small class sizes. It's almost like high school again. You're kind of familiar with everyone, even if you only see them every day in the dining hall. Except for those who live off campus--unless you know them personally or from class, they're pretty much alien to you. It's also really hard to have friends in your room, let alone live in it if you don't have a single.

2. Male to female ratio

When you attend a school that offers statistically male dominated fields, the numbers aren't going to even out the way everyone would hope.

3. Not being able to buy food after a party

Now that the local Price Chopper closes at midnight, the only options are C-Store (thanks to the change in hours late in the spring semester), the gas station, or if you know someone with a car, a long drive to Oneonta (with the help of a DD of course). If all else fails, just hope you have some food stashed back at the room.

4. Bronco Bucks

There are two types of people at Delhi; the ones who never spend any of their Bronco Bucks and binge spend at the end of the semester, and then theres the ones who always seem to be Bronco Broke. It always seems like the second type is the majority.

5. The Hill

Admittedly, if it weren't for The Hill, it would be so much easier to walk into town. The Hill is the one thing you don't look forward to walking up after a party.

6. Mac-attack

Every Delhi student has experienced Mac-attack, and agrees that they'd rather live off of C-Store. But most people eventually learn that the only time to eat at Mac is if you want the unlimited drinks/ice cream/cereal, or if it's Accepted Students Day.

7. The Wi-Fi/cell service

Delhi College; a school where the majority of your work is online but its located on a mountain in the middle of nowhere so good luck getting Wi-Fi.

8. Dry campus

Even though this doesn't stop on-campus drinking, it's still pretty annoying and complaint-worthy--especially if you're 21 and over.

9. The long wait for pasta

Ever want to stop at Farrell for some pasta between classes? Well, think again because you're either going to be making your way to class late, or you're going to settle for something that you didn't really want.

10. The shuttle

"Take the shuttle," they said. "It won't be that bad," they said. Cramping in a shuttle that usually smells can be awkward when the driver seems to think they're straight out of "Fast and Furious" while they try to make conversation about your college life. It also takes forever to get picked up, so just hope it isn't cold.

11. Cramped dirty frat houses after running out of alcohol or getting busted after an hour

It's always a good time until there are no more drinks, or until the cops show up outside.

12. Farrell not opening until 4:30 on weekends

Waking up before 4:30 on a weekend is hard when Mac is your only option and it's mostly just breakfast food. Don't get me wrong--there are perks to an all-day breakfast, but sometimes we just want some real food.

13. The cold

Welcome to Delhi, where it can go from sunny to below zero and snowing in a matter of 5 minutes.

14. Pledging

If you want to be part of a fraternity/ sorority, the process can be extremely difficult and push you to your limits. Sometimes it can affect your grades and force you to drop. Every process is different which means different things to complain about. It can be tiring, but once you make it to the end, everything you complained about will have paid off.

15. The amount of effort it takes just to get to the gym/bubble

Its more of a workout and actually takes more motivation just to make your way up to the gym than it does to start your gym routine. College on a mountain problems.

16. Living in Russell hall

The rooms are definitely the smallest and the building and bathrooms are pretty filthy. Plus its one of the farthest from where most classes are held.

17. The fake Mac madness nights

There's nothing worse than looking forward to Mac madness, and you walk in to find out that they're serving pancakes.

18. Laundry rooms

When it gets to the point that you have to drag your laundry to another floor to do it, you earn the right to complain. The laundry rooms are where it becomes every man for himself. Nothing's more annoying than waiting for a washer and finding that someone has left their clothes in there for hours or when you find your clothes thrown all over the floor.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

Tiger Is Back And 2019 Is Starting To Look Up

Tiger Woods might now have the greatest comeback story in sports history.


It's no secret that Tiger Woods means a lot to the game of golf. I wrote about his influence back in September when he achieved his one and only tournament win in 2018, first since 2013. I did, however, celebrate his win with a caveat of sorts: I wouldn't say he was back.

In golf, no one cares about how big your prize purse is, how many endorsements you've got or even how many tournaments you win. A golfer's career is measured by how many Majors they win. So for me, I couldn't claim Tiger was back until he secured at least one more Major victory before he decided to hang up the clubs for good.

But now, with a Masters championship under his belt and another green jacket to hang in the closet, I can safely say without a doubt in my mind that Tiger is back.

The biggest question with Tiger was whether or not he could carry the momentum from his Tour Championship into the Masters. Tiger has gotten our hopes up before, but things felt different the moment Tiger claimed that first tournament win in what felt like forever.

And honestly, there's no better way for the world's biggest golfer than in the world's biggest tournament. The "Tiger Effect" is very real, and the numbers are there to prove it. Despite having to tee off early for the final round with threesomes instead of duos to avoid storms, the Masters still delivered incredibly high TV ratings as Tiger played his way into contention the past few days. According to CBS, the final round of the Masters delivered a 7.7 rating which is the highest it's been in 34 years. I'll never forget where I was when Tiger won his fifth green jacket, and I'm certainly not alone in saying that.

So what does this mean for Tiger's legacy? For one, the argument of "can Tiger win another major before he retires" can finally be put to rest. I'm not a huge fan of the talking heads in the sports industry, but watching this video of the slue of bad Tiger takes just brings a smile to my face. It also resurfaces the Jack Nicklaus debate as the greatest golfer of all time. Having now secured his 15th Major win, breaking Nicklaus' record at 18 Major wins seems entirely possible. Statistically, Tiger winning another Major is not outside of the realm of possibility. Julius Boros was the oldest player to win a Major at 48, so Tiger at 43 theoretically gives him another five years. One thing's for sure, the entire sports world will be watching.
