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.

20. Wells Fargo tailgates

21. Late night (mozz sticks and mac & cheese to be precise)

40. Being scared to get anything from under my bed

41. Zilly Fries 

42. Late night Manilla's 

43. Sunsets

44. Pedialyte Pops (If you haven't already tried them, these are a staple!!) 

45. Going to chapter with my sisters <3

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 

50. Most of all...I miss being in my favorite place, making friends and making memories, surrounded by the best people. 

Needless to say, bury me in the quad.

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
