5 Things I Miss About Winthrop

I may not be ready to go back, but I still miss my second home

5 Things I Miss About Winthrop

If you go to Winthrop, you know that there is no other school you would want to be at. No matter how much you might want to tear your hair out during the semester, the campus itself is a sight for sore eyes. Even though I was elated to leave for the summer, there were still some things I missed about my campus.

1. Common Time

Everyone loves common time. It's a time where you don't have to worry about having to go to class and you can just relax with your friends. It's even better when you don't have a class before it. It means extra sleep time, or time to stand in the line for a bagel and Einsteins. Plus, you might see the occasional Greek come out and stroll with their members on Campus Green.

2. Subway

The main thing I miss about Subway is being able to use my cafe cash instead of actually having to pay for it. Going to Subway back home for the first time and having to use my credit card or cash was truly heartbreaking. Not being able to swipe my ID was truly a strange experience.

3. Scholars Walk

I miss Scholar's Walk for the lovely wooden swings to sit on between classes and for sheer entertainment. You never really know what is going to happen on Scholar's Walk. There might be dancing, or we all might be crowded around the newest puppy on campus. Sometimes you even get to dodge a car that's cruising down the path.

4. Nugget Day in Thomson

No day in Thomson makes me happier than Nug Day. Period.


5. Free Movies in Dina's Place

It's always a good time when you can grab a few friends and go to Dina's Place to watch a movie. Not only are they cheaper than a regular ticket (these days tickets are about $20 after taxes), but also the fact that you can literally show up in whatever and just enjoy a good movie.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.

1497

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet 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.
