7 Things I Learned About Cape From Visiting SEMO

They like to party, by the way.

7 Things I Learned About Cape From Visiting SEMO

1. They like to party.

OK, I would honestly be dumb to say that I didn't know this before I went down there. Yes, there are people who care about school and grades there, but that doesn't mean that they can't have a good time while studying. Going to Cape was cool, but when we left it literally felt like the whole town was hungover on that Sunday morning.

2. They have a very strong Greek Life.

Greek Life seemed to dominate this town. You always see their sororities with the cutest bid day themes. Both the fraternities and the sororities seem to be extremely involved especially when it comes to stuff like Greek Week.

3. Burritoville is the GOAT.

Move over Qdoba and Chipotle. Seriously, these burritos blow every other burrito I've ever had out of the water. A buffalo chicken burrito? I bet your mouth just started watering, and that's not even the best one on the menu. If that doesn't sound amazing yet, they also have margs. You can pregame your pregame at this place while downing big burritos. That's the life.

4. Last Call is the place to be at night.

I know that there are other bars down there and I'm sure there are tons of house parties, but we walked around SEMO and asked people where we should go and every one of them said Last Call. They sure were right, too. The atmosphere totally fits what someone imagines their college experience to be like.

5. Oh, they also like to darty.

Darty, party. They do it all. Sure "every school has darties" but from what I hear about SEMO, they have darties literally whenever they feel like it. Oh, there's a raccoon stuck in the vent and classes are cancelled? Darty. Someone that you live with failed a test and is sad? Have a darty. You got a pet fish? Have a darty. You're bored? Darty. So many reasons to have a darty, and I look completely forward to visiting during this season.

5. It is a complete college town.

"Well, the older people hate us, because we don't really stop partying, but we kind of keep the town alive." Everywhere you go you see college students. Every single house looks like a college student should live in it. College things everywhere.

6. The campus is straight up confusing.

There. Are. So. Many. Hills. I thought that our car was going to flip going down to look at the Greek housing. It's also set up funny.

7. It literally does not matter what you wear to the bars.

I saw girls wearing sweatpants and girls wearing formal attire and people acted like it was completely normal. No judgment whatsoever. No one was talking about "how extra Sarah is because she is wearing heels to the bar." Everyone was just there to have a good time.

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.
