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!

How I Went From Pro-Life To Pro-Choice

"No one can make you do this."

819
msra.org

I was raised in a strict, Irish-Catholic family. My parents and grandparents, even though I love them, instilled many beliefs in me that I came to disagree with as I grew older, things like "homosexuality is weird and wrong." I eventually rejected many of these ideas once I began growing into myself, but there was always one belief I let ring true well into my teen years: abortion is the murder of an unborn baby.

There are so many ways for one to describe the beautiful city of New York. It is breathtaking, exciting and alive all in one. Taking a trip here was absolutely the adventure of a lifetime for me and I'm so grateful to have gotten to see all there is to do in the "City of Dreams" with one of my best friends.

God, What's Next?

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start. Whatever the case maybe be for you I want to let you know that your season of waiting is not in vain! It may seem like it but your season of waiting is a crucial part in your walk with Christ. You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.
