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.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
