9 Reasons You Should Join Your College's Ultimate Frisbee Team
Leah Bisson

It doesn't matter if you are headed into your (super) senior year or are just entering college as a freshman. There is never a bad time to join your college's Ultimate Frisbee team. Here is why I think it will be the best choice you will ever make in your college career.

1. You get to travel for tournaments.

Tournament weekends are some of my favorite memories from college. You get to travel to different campuses with some of your very best friends. What can be better than that?

2. It is a fun way to stay active.

Sometimes it can be a struggle to drag yourself to the gym after a long day of classes. When you have practice four days a week you can look forward to your exercise instead of dreading it.

3. You are part of a rapidly growing sport.

Ultimate is a pretty new sport and is growing so quickly. In 30 years you can look back on your college days and say that you were on the leading edge of the Ultimate scene.

4. You meet amazing people.

I met all of my best friends in college through the Ultimate Frisbee team. There is no better bonding experience than spending a weekend playing Ultimate Frisbee with some of the coolest people you have ever met.

5. You build up a pretty cool selection of gear.

Tournament swag is the best. Hats, Frisbees, shorts and jerseys. You'll develop an impressive collection of swag from all the different tournaments you go on. Not to mention you can buy some great stuff from companies like 5Ultimate.

6. You can keep playing in the summer.

Almost every major city has a summer Ultimate league. You don;t have to worry about losing your skills during the summer. Find a local summer league and spend your summer playing the best sport there is.

7. You get to play on a coed team.

Not many sports have coed teams but Ultimate Frisbee does! Playing a coed sport is an awesome experience.

8. You become connected with people from all over the country.

It's a small world that gets even smaller when you start playing Ultimate. Everyone knows everyone and you'll have friends and connections scattered across the nation.

9. It's just an all around amazing time.

Ultimate Frisbee is just pure fun all the time. From practices with awesome teammates to tournament weekends to watching the championships with all your friends, if you join your school's Ultimate Frisbee team you will not regret it!

So, it doesn't matter how long you've been going to your university or if you have never played Ultimate Frisbee before. Start the semester right and join the team!

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.

If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

6 Ways To Handle The Stress Of Earning Your Degree From Your Childhood Bedroom

Oh so this was the room where I snuck cookies upstairs past my bedtime and stole R-Rated movies to watch when my parents were asleep and now I'm expected to earn my degree in this very same room?

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist. For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to get you in that thankful spirit before you head into the Christmas spirit or something to play while you enjoy Friendsgiving, here are some go-to songs to add to your November playlist.
