I'm not the only CMSV student to think this, right?!

32 Questions I Have For The College Of Mount Saint Vincent
Runner Space

I started attending The College of Mount Saint Vincent 4 years ago as a naive freshman, who was both nervous and excited for what college would have in store for her. Well sure enough, the years flew by and I'm now about to start my final semester at CMSV...wow that went fast! The lessons I've learned and the opportunities I've received over the last 4 years have been a rollercoaster of emotions and filled with endless shots at Gleeson's or Kelly Ryan's! Going into the last few months of my time at CMSV, and reflecting over the past 4 years, I've decided to compile a list of 32 questions for CMSV that only a true Dolphin would understand!

1. Why does being on campus make everyone feel like CMSV is a glorified high school, and not a college?

2. Good, you finally fixed up Villa Parking Lot, but who was the genius in charge of making the parking spots so unbelievably small, that it's becoming second nature to side swipe the cars in the spots next to yours?!

3. Why does everything have to be haunted on campus?

4. Because let's be real, how many students actually say "hi" to Sarah the ghost when entering Hayes Auditorium?

5. Why is Google Maps convinced that my location on campus is that of an insane asylum for orphans, instead of a college campus??--it's creepy!

6. Does any of the administrative offices on campus know how to answer their damn phones?!

7. You think we don't see you Financial Aid?--we know that you hear the phone ringing all day, but refuse to pick up the phone or return our calls...even though it's part of your job description, just saying.

8. Speaking of Financial Aid, why do you screw up every student's tuition bill EVERY. DAMN. SEMESTER???!

9. Why is wifi pretty much non-existent on campus?--especially in Founder's!

10. How come student workers are only allowed to work no more than 18 hour weeks during winter and summer breaks??

11. Do you really think that we can survive on $300 or less every two weeks with how much money it costs to go to CMSV?!


13. Is anybody else afraid of this insane breed of squirrels that live on CMSV campus??--they will fight you, it's un-natural!

14. Can someone explain to me how it's perfectly acceptable for CMSV to hire a comedian for Tripping Tuesday's when they say the most vulgar and obscene jokes in front of nuns, yet it's like starting a war when we want a rapper for our Spring Fest musical guest?--apparently rappers need to be censored, but comedians don't...okaaayyyy.

15. Is there ever going to be a year where there actually will be off-campus housing, instead of promising it to us, taking it away after the entire campus has chosen their room's for the next year, and making us re-do the entire housing lottery because Res Life couldn't get it together?

16. Why are there no online courses offered?

17. Why are English courses not an option for the winter and summer intersessions?--and don't tell me that it's because there's not enough time to cover English material during an intersession, because the Nursing Department offers intersession courses, and if a nurse messes up in their field someone dies...so that's b.s.

18. Why if a course is mandatory for my degree, you only offer it 1 semester, every other year (2x in entire college career)?

19. Why is there no Greek Life on campus?

20. Why don't we have a football team like every other school in America?

21. Why whenever the entire campus decides to meet up at the same bar for Thirsty Thursday, the cops always show up?

22. Can no one at CMSV control themselves anymore?--this is why we can't have nice things!

23. Can people stop setting the fire alarms off at 3AM by vaping?

24. Why are the fire alarms so sensitive?!--I set it off with hairspray once...

25. When are freshman going to get the hint to stop wearing their student I.D.'s around their neck's?

26. Who's bright idea was it to make our mascot the Dolphin?--let's face it, that's not scary at all!

27. Is anyone else convinced that Brown Bag Bingo is rigged?

28. Why does everyone make it their job to know everyone's business?--this isn't high school, but it feels like it!

29. When did girls become so disgusting?--every girls room on campus always looks like a war zone!

30. Isn't it a fire hazard to cram three people into a double in order to make it into a triple?

31. Is someone ever going to decide whether our school colors are white and gold or blue and gold?--because the merch in the No Book Store utilizes blue too much for it to just be an accent color!

32. Can someone answer these, because I've been insanely curious for the past 4 years?!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
