Small schools have so much to offer.

5 Advantages of Going to a Small University

Attending a small university over a large state school offers a whole different kind of college experience; sure, the campus may not be bombarded with thousands of kids every minute of every day, but you never have to worry about becoming lost in the crowd. Here are five advantages of going to a small university:

1. Your professors get to know you.

One of the obvious perks of attending a small university is the ability to connect with your professors on a personal level. You have the opportunity to form valuable relationships with them that can benefit you in the future. If you're struggling with a concept, they're always there to guide you.

2. You see the same people on campus daily.

Unlike large universities that have thousands of kids milling around campus regularly, students who attend small schools never have to worry about becoming lost in a crowd. College is much less overwhelming when you don't have to worry about getting trampled by a sea of students while walking to class.

4. There's a sense of community.

While a small university may not have exciting football games to bring the college community together, there is still a multitude of events on campus available to unite students, faculty, and staff members. There's a sense of community at small universities that can't be matched by larger schools.

5. Small class sizes.

Smaller class sizes mean more individualized attention, which is something that students attending larger universities can only dream about in classes packed with hundreds of students.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.


All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.


At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
