8 Things You Can't Experience On Zoom On UWG Campus In The Fall

You can't zoom everything...

8 Things You Can't Experience On Zoom On UWG Campus In The Fall

There are things that you just can't learn about zoom about UWG. Here are some of those things so you can keep it in mind.

1. Dorm Life

You can't experience dorm life through Zoom. It's just not the same, you have to be able to live in a small space with a roommate you barely know. I live in Center Pointe suites but there are also the Oaks and University Suites as options.

2. Z6 dining hall

You cannot experience fried chicken Wednesday's through zoom, there is no smell-o-vision. Or the ice cream bar!

3. East Commons

You cannot experience the pizza through zoom, it's just not possible. Also, East Commons is much easier to experience in person for meeting up with people from your classes for any meal of the day, even before those 8ams.

4. Love Valley

This is right across from the campus center, it's the big grassy piece of land that connects you at the end of the day from where you come from whether it's class or Starbucks, and it will lead you to the other side of campus. You can't experience this on Zoom.

5. Campus Center

It's so big to experience online, there are many things that go on in here, the gym, and many seminars are in here. It will be tricky to learn about this all on zoom.

6. Starbucks

You literally cannot experience a cold or hot beverage from Starbucks on campus. There are also good seats in Starbucks in person if you want to enjoy your drink with some friends

7. Ingram Library

Now this one may seem a little odd, but trust me on this one. The library has everything you need to have in-person from computers to study nooks and even has a quiet floor for studying. You can't go wrong with this in person.

8. The TLC

The main hub for the writing center, lecture halls, and your other smaller classes in the computer labs. I have had several lectures and classes in this building

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
