35 Questions I Have For Auburn University

Some thing we are all wondering and have probably all said out loud.

35 Questions I Have For Auburn University
Abby Jones

I have been a student at Auburn for a crisp three years. Now that I'm a junior and pretty much an expert on all things Auburn, I'm left with some questions that I wanted to share. I love you, loveliest village, but I am just curious...

1. Why is it that in any given classroom in Haley Center I can either have a heat stroke or suffer from hypothermia?

2. Speaking of Haley Center, why is it still standing?

3. Am I the only one who felt personally disrespected when Chicken Grill was closed down?

4. Parking Services, who hurt you? Why are you the way that you are?

5. Will we ever find the real Quincy?

6. Why does Biggin Hall smell like a decaying animal?

7. Is there a tell-all book somewhere with all of the tragic stories about everyone who's stepped on the seal? I'd like to send my condolences.

8. Can we just take a bulldozer to the Hill? Really, it's long overdue.

9. Why are we referred to as "The Plains"? That's false. Everywhere I go I'm walking uphill.

10. Can we never, and I mean never, switch to the plus/minus system?

11. RO Parking is pretty much the worst idea anyone has ever had. Not a question, it just needed to be said.

12. Why is a piece of bruised fruit $6 in the C-store?

13. Do you know anyone, anywhere that wants to go to a lab at 8 pm?

14. Can Netflix be included in our tuition? Asking for a friend.

15. What exactly do the "student fees" on our e-bill go toward?

16. Is it fun for professors to give three tests, a group project, a research paper, and a search and rescue mission the week before finals?

17. Can someone explain to me what "dead week" is? We wouldn't know.

18. Why is Little Italy's the best thing that's ever happened to me?

19. I've mentioned parking a lot so why not once more? Can we maybe add another lot instead of doing construction on everything else? Everything. Else.

20. Do y'all just think off campus students don't need to eat? That $300 tiger card mess is once again, disrespectful.

21. Will you really pay our tuition if we get hit by transit? What about lightly tapped?

22. Is Ukulele boy even a student?

23. Are there University counseling services offered to those who have been victims of the concourse? I'd like to book an appointment.

24. Has anyone ever really gotten an A from memorizing that quote on the Chem building?

25. Do you realize that pretty much everyone hates the new ticketing system? We all hate it. All of us.

26. Whose idea was it to get rid of Copy Cat?

27. Also, whose idea was it to install that confusing contraption in the student center masked as a printer instead?

28. Why do you have to sell your first born to pay out-of-state tuition?

29. Did we model our registration for classes based on the Hunger games? Pretty sure we did.

30. Why is it that classes we all need are only offered certain semesters, but advanced kayaking is offered year round?

31. Is there an intermediate kayaking? Does one need to own a kayak to take this course?

32. Why does Toomer's Lemonade taste better when you're sitting on Samford Lawn?

33. Can we hire a 24/7 security staff for our trees? The situation has really gotten out of hand.

34. Does Aubie do birthday parties? Like, for adults? Again, asking for a friend.

35. Why is it that every other college I've ever been to pales in comparison?

I love you Auburn, even with your quirks and terrible parking. War Eagle for now and for always!

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

21 EDM Songs for a Non-EDM Listener

If you have been following me for a long time, then you know I write about two main things: relateable articles and communication media based articles. Now, it is time for me to combine the two. For those of you that don't know, I am a radio DJ at IUP, and I DJ for a show called BPM (Beats Per Minute). It is an EDM, or electronic dance music, based show and I absolutely love it.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
