6 Reasons Why Swap Season Is The Best Season
Maui Pride

With swap season in full swing, sorority girls along with fraternity boys are pulling out their craziest costumes to celebrate. For those of you who don't know what a swap is, it's an organized social event where a sorority and fraternity are paired up and dress up according to a specified theme. It's basically like a high school dance on steroids. But what makes this time of year so special? Well you've come to the right place to figure out!

1. Wearing fun costumes

No matter what the theme, whether it's "You Are What You Netflix", "Welcome to the Jungle" or just your basic toga party, people go all out, and it's so fun to see what other people come up with.

2. Meeting new people

Especially when your chapter is as large as mine, it can be hard and intimidating to meet every single member. Swaps are a great way to meet and bond with your sisters on the dance floor, and you also get to meet some fraternity boys.

3. It's like a date party, but without the date

Perhaps the most stressful part of sorority life is finding dates to all of the formals and date parties. The great part about a swap is that you don't have to find a date to go! You just show up with your friends and don't have to worry about what your date is wearing.

4. Dancing!!

What better way to practice your new dance moves than surrounded by your sorority sisters! This is a no-judgement zone where all dancing abilities are accepted.

5. A Good excuse to go out in the middle of the week

College is all about balancing academic and social life (oh and sleep of course). When swap season comes around, it's a nice excuse to take a break from school and go out with your friends without having to actually plan something.

6. The fun t-shirts

Is it really a Greek life event without a t-shirt involved? My closet it filled with t-shirts from the various swaps I've attended, and I can't wait to add to my collection this year.

So everyone get out there and enjoy swap season!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
