40 Questions I Have For SUNY Oswego

40 Questions I Have For SUNY Oswego

Oswego, we need some answers.

The City Of Oswego

Oswego: a small college town right off of Lake Ontario that dazzles both incoming and current students each and every day. The town itself is a bit run down, but hidden within are many great places open for students to discover and enjoy. Although the college is made to appeal as a top of the notch school, there are several aspects of the school itself that raise more than a few questions. SUNY Oswego -- we pay your tuition, so now it is time for you to answer some of our questions.

1. What even is a Laker?

2. Is the quad ever going to be used for anything or is it just going to sit there all sad and neglected?

3. Why do you hire advisors that do not know the answers to questions they are put there to answer?

4. Why is it so difficult for advisers to attend their scheduled appointments? Aren't they paid to do that?

5. Why don't the tour guides ever go through West Campus?

6. Are you ever going to remodel West Campus?

7. Forget West Campus -- are you ever going to remodel the library?

8. Why won't you put at least one printer in every residence hall?

9. Were there really ropes lining the sidewalks to keep people from blowing away many years ago?

10. Can you reinstall said ropes, please?

12. Why isn't there a parking lot for every residence hall?

13. Where are all of Lakeside's residents supposed to park?

14. Why does your snow plowing system involve burying all of the cars it passes in a horribly deep amount of snow?

15. You know we have to shovel all of that ourselves, right?

16. Why do you hide "optional fees" on our student bill?

17. Why don't you inform us on how to remove these fees?

18. Is the bell tower in Sheldon actually haunted?

19. Why are there 20 washers and 15 dryers for 300 residents in each residence hall?

20. Do you understand how much of a pain it is to wait four hours just to dry your clothes?

21. Why is the shower water only sometimes hot?

22. How many times a semester do the elevators on West Campus break down or get stuck?

23. Why can't we take containers of food out of the dining hall?

24. Don't we pay for it?

25. Why is my dorm room either scorching hot or a freezer, and not in between?

26. Why do we have to pay for a gym membership when other SUNY schools offer one for free?

27. If a student gets hit by a car/bus on campus, will you actually pay for their tuition?

28. If someone's roommate dies do you actually give the living roommate a 4.0 for the semester?

29. When you hire professors, why do you hire them?

30. Because they would be a great educator?

31. Or because they are going to do research that will make our school look better?

32. Why can't we have pets on campus?

33. Why doesn't the Starbucks on campus take Starbucks gift cards?

34. Why does every student that works in a dining hall hate working there?

35. Are they treated poorly?

36. Is the tutoring center actually a good resource?

37. Are the tutors trained to teach the material the certain way the professor of the class would?

38. Does it hurt your feelings that the sole reason most people picked this school was Lake Ontario?

39. Or are you just happy you are getting your money?

40. But seriously, can you tell us what a Laker is now?

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
