Top 5 Things To Do In West Lafayette And Lafayette

When the weather finally settles on being nice, these are the best things to do in the area.


Even though some people hate to admit it, there are plenty of things to do in the area. Well, as soon as the weather stays consistently nice.

Mosey Down Main Street

Every local looks forward to the Mosey Down Main Street. Moseys happen throughout the summer in the downtown area. If you are looking for local art and music then these are for you! They are known for dancing, live music, arts/crafts, street performers, and local foods.

Dancing and Cruising in the Streets

I have personally performed in Dancing in the Streets and it is definitely one of my favorite activities in this town. If you love old fashioned cars and dance performances by local studios then this is the choice for you. Once again, there is always food and live music with fun activities for everyone of all ages.

Colombian Park & Zoo

First of all, the park is perfect for a nice relaxing day and a packed picnic lunch. Second of all, the zoo is not like your normal zoo as seen on TV. This is a zoo done Indiana style with the main attraction being the petting zoo. This petting zoo is full of goats and if you're lucky the babies will be around.

Farmer's Markets

Who doesn't love fresh produce and good people?! The farmer's market is a weekly event that allows people to sell their product whether it be food or a handmade gift, it is definitely worth it.

Walking Downtown in the Evening

Walking with a group of friends or a significant other around downtown is one of my favorite things to do. Maybe plan a dinner and then just walk around to take cute pictures in front of cool murals or statues. Make the most of your night. You can always use more pictures for Instagram.

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.

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.
