5 Things That You Absolutely Need When Heading Back To College
Photo submitted by Anna Powers

I am heading back to 'Cuse in just a short two months and are a few things that I will be bringing with me, and I think everyone should bring them too.

1. Three or four comfy pairs of leggings 

I 100% promise you that even though you might want to dress cute the first weeks of classes, shortly after that all that you will want to wear is leggings. Having several good pairs will easy outfits in the morning.

2. Reusable Water Bottle/Coffee Cup/Straw

While you are on campus you are going to want a reusable water bottle(s) and straw(s), so you are not constantly buying plastic water bottles and straws. It really is not cool to do that. :/ And just a pro-tip: If you use a reusable coffee cup at Starbucks you get a discount! SAVE THE TURTLES!

3. Five Subject Notebook

I figured out after the first semester that you do not need a notebook for every class, so what I did the second semester was get a five subject notebook that way each of my classes just had a section and it was so easy to carry around, and I didn't have to waste any paper.

4. Frat Shoes

I know that this is probably a given, but I think that contrary to popular belief, sometimes you should have more than one type of frat shoes. Yes, of course, white sneakers are always the way to go, but, in my opinion, I think you should also have an extra pair of booties dedicated to the frats. After all, sometimes those booties are the perfect way to finish off an outfit.

5. An open mind and positive attitude

I know that this is super cliché but remember that when you go back to school sometimes things are going to get extremely hard because life is hard. Just remember that everyone has their own struggles and challenges, but it really all works out in the end.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
