I Only Need 9 Reasons To Show Why Alabama Is The Best School In The Nation

A recent article on reasons why you should choose to attend The University of Wisconsin-Madison popped up on my screen this week and got me thinking. I am sure this institute has a lot to offer and by no means am I bashing it (even though I do not agree the fact that they have the best mascot).

However, to say there is no better place than UW-Madison is just false and I am from the Midwest myself.

I am here as a true University of Alabama student to gloat on why I go to the best school in the country.

And if you don’t want to take my word for it, I have countless news articles, alumni, fans, awards, and most importantly football scores, to back up my point.

1. Celebrity Fans

Not only do we think we go to the best school in the nation, just ask Drake and Channing Tatum about Alabama just to name a couple.

2. Best Greek Life

Despite a recent incident, there is a reason we have the largest sorority recruitment in the nation. From Fried Fridays to band parties every weekend, it isn’t a secret that we have the best of the best.

3. The Students

When we are all dressed up for gamedays it may seem we were all born and raised in Alabama, but that is far from the truth. More than 50% of our student body is from out-of-state which means no matter where you’re from, you still think Alabama is the best.

4. The Campus

You know the prettiest part of your campus? Yeah, that’s our entire school.

5. College Town

From T-shirt Tuesdays to Wine Wednesdays, there is something going on every day of the week.

6. Football

Does this need any explanation? Roll Tide.

7. Sports

Not only are we good at football, we are now a #basketballschool too.

8. Gamedays

We all know we have the best football team, but we also have the best gamedays. From singing Dixieland Delight, to our infamous shakers, to dressing up every for every single game, Tuscaloosa is the place to be on Saturdays.

9. Roll Tide

Many schools have a saying, but it’s just not as universal as ours. It’s every thank you, hello, goodbye, success, fail, and just a way of life. I can’t even walk 10 feet back home in Indianapolis without getting a “roll tide” yelled at me from across the room.

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.
