50 Things I Miss About The Best Place On Villanova's Campus: The Quad
Kaitlyn Stivers

Everyone knows that The Quad is the best place on Villanova's campus. In fact, it's an irrefutable statement. Unfortunately, time in our favorite place was cut short. Although we had to leave early, we can't discount the amazing times we did have. What better way to honor the many 'quad bools' than a reflection on some of my favorite memories in my favorite place. So, without further ado, I am honored to present a comprehensive list documenting some of my favorite memories, and what makes The Quad so special.

46. "Be safe and have fun!!....But... mostly have fun!!" 

47. Laughing so hard it's a better workout than Chloe Ting 

48. Running across the intersection with 1 second left...yes, I'm THAT girl 

49. Singing my favorite songs, and no one caring about my brutal pitch

Needless to say, bury me in the quad.

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.

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.
