6 Things I Would Change About SUNY Oswego

We've all thought about it.

6 Things I Would Change About SUNY Oswego
Start Up NY

The end of my freshman year at SUNY Oswego is approaching, and I'm starting to reflect back on the time I've spent here so far. I've had the time of my life, but that's definitely not to say that there aren't more than a few things I would change about this school. So, here's my list of things that I would change about SUNY Oswego because we've obviously all thought about it.

1. The Weather

We're situated right on Lake Ontario, which means that we have access to some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. However, it also means that crazy wind hits us every single day, no matter the weather. It could be sunny and windy, cold and windy, rainy and windy, snowy and windy, or whatever. You're not truly a SUNY Oswego student if you haven't almost been knocked over on the way to class.

2. The food

I live for taco dinners and late night at Lakeside and the pasta Cooper always has for lunch, but there are some days where I would rather eat anything but the dining hall food. After weeks on end of eating nothing but dining hall meals, it gets a little old.

3. Broken Elevators

I live in Funnelle Hall which is a building with nine floors and over four hundred people. Without fail, there is always at least one elevator that is down. Always. One time two of them were broken and we all had to leave like twenty minutes earlier for class because it took so long to get an elevator. I guess it's just all a part of the adventure.

4. The Wi-Fi

We're a big campus, so I can understand how it could be difficult to get the wi-fi to work on every part of the campus at all times. But when it cuts off when you're in the middle of taking a quiz or takes absolutely forever to load your homework, it's easy to pray for better Internet.

5. Hot Water

I'm sure it took a while, but we all figured out the perfect time to shower that provided the best access to hot water. For me, the only shower that provides nonstop hot water is the middle one, so I always have to wait until that one's free. I would definitely love more than one shower with hot water, though.

6. More Cafes on Campus

We all love getting coffee at Lake Effect or fries at Crossroads, but I wish there were more food options on campus, like a Moe's or a Panera. It would definitely provide an escape from dining hall food, and maybe give you a taste of the food from home.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
