8 College Luxuries Every Student Takes For Granted

College is kind of amazing.

8 College Luxuries Every Student Takes For Granted
Hannah Jones

1. Free gym access.

Many college students laugh at the idea that they might actually go work out at the campus recreation center. I mean why work out when you can take a nap or binge watch Netflix? But, campus gyms are typically so nice and FREE, so take advantage of that beautiful gym and prevent that freshman 15.

2. Making your own schedule.

Most college students don't realize how lucky they are to make their own schedule. No class before noon, no Friday classes — the choice is yours.

3. Getting extremely cheap tickets to football games.

College students get free or very inexpensive tickets to all (or most) of the football games. Normal football fans don't get into an Alabama v. Auburn or LSU for only ten dollars.

4. Being able to live abroad for a semester without breaking the bank.

The world is literally ours...

5. Living in the same building or just down the street from all of your friends.

Whether it be in the same dorm, sorority or fraternity house, or in the same neighborhood, you and all of your friends live in couple mile radius from each other. Need me? I'll be there in 5. Literally.

6. Thanksgiving break. Christmas break. Spring break. Summer break.

Need I say more?

7. Being able to go to parties in the middle of the day and it being socially acceptable.

Oh, it isn't normal to go out at noon any day of the week? Weird..

8. Student discounts.

TopShop, ASOS, Amazon, Spotify, Apple Music, J. Crew, and Madewell are a few of MANY stores that offer student discounts. Just another reason to shop, right?

Enjoy your college years, because they might just be some of your best.

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.

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.
