8 Things Wrong With Arizona State University
Here's eight things wrong about Arizona State University, if we're being honest.

1. We don't have a Greek Row.

Yes, I know we have giant condos for greek life, but it is not the same as what other colleges or universities have. See they have giant houses and we got stuck with condos that all face one another. And I hate to say it, but even University of Arizona has giant houses and to me, that sounds a whole lot better.

2. We don't have a school newspaper.

We do have a Cronkite school (the journalism school) newspaper, but it is nothing compared to a school newspaper where we have columns discussing all parts of the university and random pieces. We are one of the best journalism schools in the nation, yet we don't have a newspaper. Well, that's weird.

3. Our school spirit sucks.

People literally just show up to the game for two minutes, take a Snapchat and Instagram picture acting like they were there and then they leave.

4. There's too many campuses.

Downtown, Tempe, Polytechnic, and West. It doesn't feel like a college town/campus with all the campuses we have and how widespread everything is. It is not enjoyable when you have to uber to class every day or take the light rail where all the homeless people sleep and hang out.

5. The dining halls are awful.

Want some pizza? Well, it is going to taste like cardboard. There is absolutely nothing to eat in the dining hall. Well, the salad bar is always there, but do they really think all college students are going to be running to the salad bar to make sure they got the last of the tomatoes.

6. Too many assignment platforms.

Blackboard, Canvas, Tophat, Mytab? Can't our professors just pick one learning management system to use so each class I don't have to pay 125 bucks for another system

7. It's a "dry campus."

Well sorry ASU that's a funny joke, welcome to college.

8. Who came up with the Sun Devil hand gesture?


I hope they know what it means (kids reading this, you know what it means…)

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.

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.
