There are some things I will definitely miss about being at college.

5 Things I'll Miss About College
Leah Mikonowicz

My freshman year of college is coming to an end and as I reflect on this past year, I realized there are somethings that I am going to miss. I am so excited to be home for the summer and see my family, friends, and dogs, but college was fun and I'm going to miss it. So, here are 5 things I will miss about college at Gustavus.

1. My Friends

I met some pretty great people here and I'm going to miss living in the same building as them.

2. The Campus

Gustavus has such a beautiful campus, and I am really going to miss the pretty walks to class.

3. The Freedom

Being able to do anything I wanted anytime I wanted was great. I had my own rules and didn't even have to follow them.

4. My Job

Having a work-study job like mine was amazing. I did the work I was supposed to do, but there never was really a lot that had to be done so I got to do my homework or even watch Netflix. You can't find a job as good as my work-study job in the real world.

5. The Food

Gustavus is known for the cafeteria food being really good. Having a variety of food available at any time is really great, and you don't even have to cook the food or clean the dishes. I will definitely miss the not having to cook things myself part.

I am so glad I chose Gustavus, and my freshman year flew by. I am so excited to be home for summer, but I can't wait for another great year at Gustavus in the fall!

While September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present, it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket. You have the whole day off and no responsibilities besides refilling your popcorn bucket. Now all you have to do is decide on what movie to watch, but you know one movie will not fulfill your need of relaxing all day. A movie marathon is the only answer to your problem. In case you did not know what movie series to start with, try a few of these.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.
