24 Things That Lasted Longer Than The Alley


24 Things That Lasted Longer Than The Alley

As I'm sure every Rutgers student knows by now, the infamous "Alley" (only infamous through because it only lasted 11, or so, days), was shut down by University officials last week through a tweet reproduced. Needless to say, students are outraged calling for a protest of football games until the student tailgate is reinstated.

The Alley was officially opened prior to the first home game of the season against Howard University on September 10th. It was intended to be a student tailgate in hope to have higher attendance at games and seemed to be working too! The first two (and only two) games the Alley made an appearance, attendance was higher, the student section was filled, and the Scarlet Knights won both games. Sounds like something to keep going, am I right?!?! So without further ado, here are 24 things that lasted longer than our beloved Alley! Be sure to share this with your friends to raise awareness of #FREETHEALLEY

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
