Here are eight things you need to do before graduating UO. It is important to make the most of your college experience because you only have four short years.

1. Attend a football game at Autzen Stadium

Football is not for everyone, but going to football game during college is a really great experience. Enjoy at least one game while you have the chance.

2. Float the Willamette River

The Willamette river may be freezing, but during summer it is tons of fun to get a group of friends and float down it.

3. Get a drink at Taylor's Bar and Grill

Taylor's is basically a right of passage for every University of Oregon college student, even if you don't like the bar scene. Maybe just go once so you can say you've been.

4. Hike Spencer's Butte

Spencer's Butte is a beautiful hike that everyone living in Eugene should experience at least once. It is even more special if you go at sunrise or sunset.

5. Attend a tailgate

I don't need your opinions on why I'm single and you're not. We are two different people.

I'm so happy for my friends when they get into relationships, but that doesn't mean they get to have control over my love life, and that is what bothers me. For the record, I've been in four relationships, one lasting for three years, so I do understand relationships.

I Was At The Atlanta George Floyd Protests, Here's What It Was Like Before The Violence Started

What started out as a peaceful protest quickly resulted in destruction, with mixed opinions leading narratives on both sides.

When I heard about the protests happening in my city in honor of George Floyd, a black man who was brutally and fatally detained by police in broad daylight, I was conflicted about the best way for me to support a cause that I was passionate about. The senseless killings of people of color in America had been weighing on me, and I was eager for a way to help, to do my part. I wanted to be out on the ground with my community, having our voices heard. However, there was the issue of the coronavirus, a very real and troublesome threat that is still controlling our daily lives.

If You Can Eat Crap And Stay Thin You Aren't Healthy, You're Lucky

Everyone has that one friend — the one who eats to their heart's content but never gains an ounce. Meanwhile, you feel like you gain five pounds just stealing a glance at a hamburger! My childhood best friend was like that, much to my chagrin. Anyone who hadn't witnessed her eat might be tempted to say that she was thin because of her diet, but she would sometimes eat a bag of Sour Patch Kids as a "meal." One time, I watched in awe as she chowed down on a "salad" made up of one part romaine lettuce, two parts shredded cheddar cheese, and two parts French dressing — it was nothing more than a red lake of dressing with bits of green and orange debris floating in it. Clearly our definitions of "salad" were quite different, as were our perceptions of a balanced meal.
