5 Thoughts Every College Student Has When Summer Ends

Let's face it. Summer is over.

5 Thoughts Every College Student Has When Summer Ends

With summer coming to its eventual end, there are some thoughts that consistently arise with the changing seasons and the return to the college routine.

1. How was that four months?


Time passes faster in summer, I swear! Before you know it, the end of August is here, and it doesn't even feel like you've been home for four months.

2. I didn't appreciate my free time enough.


This is a constant battle I have. I'm always worrying about not doing enough—about not appreciating the time I have when I have it—and unfortunately, the return of classes means I have less of that precious time. There will always be a book I didn't get to, a television series I didn't start, a place I didn't visit.

3. I'm not ready for endless work again.


I still have horror flashbacks when I think about finals week. And that was four months ago. I'm so not ready to have pages upon pages of readings and heavy exams on my schedule.

4. I am ready to see my friends again.


The silver lining, I suppose! You do get to see everyone you've missed over the break and catch up on all that lost time.

5. At least I have syllabus week to relax...


Yeah, until your professors kick into full gear on the third day. Let's face it. Summer is over, and they're way too thrilled about being back to take it slow.

Good luck with this school year, everyone.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
