The ABCs Of Notre Dame

From ABP to (lack of) ZZZs

The ABCs Of Notre Dame

By the time you enter college, you're expected to know your ABCs. But what no one tells you is that they definitely change. Here are the ABCs of the University of Notre Dame:

A is for ABP

There's literally not a single person on campus who hasn't hit up ABP while pulling an all-nighter in the library.

B is for the Basilica

From its bells, to its weddings, to its cameos in dome pics, the Basilica is an ND classic.

C is for Club Hes

The library named for the late, great, Father Theodore Hesburgh is stunning, yet also the site of many finals week breakdowns.

D is for Debart

Love thee Debart, hate thee Debart water. 90% of ND's student body spends at least 70% of their class time in good old Debart.

E is for Eddy Street

One word: Chipotle <3

F is for Football

No explanation necessary.

G is for the Golden Dome

Whether its girls who love to instagram, visiting fans, or literally a random stranger, EVERYONE loves the dome.

H is for Hip Hop Night

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

Ah, the infamous hip hop night. You know how people say that only God can judge you? Well they're wrong, because so can the sober people at Hip Hop night.

I is for IRISH

Go Irish! That is all.

J is for JPW

A signature Notre Dame tradition.

K is for Coach Kelly

If we take the time to throw up some K's in between third and fourth quarter, then Coach Kelly must be pretty important, right?

L is for LaFun

What is LaFortune? Idk.

M is for Milkshake Mass

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

Dillon's Milkshake Mass is pretty infamous, and a great call.

N is for North Quad

O is for O’Shag

AKA the fiery furnace of hell.

P is for Parietals

AKA the reason I will never agree to sharing my bed, ever.

Q is for Quarter Life Crisis

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

Chances are that a test, paper, or assignment freshman year will force you into a late night breakdown at Hes. Therefore, I give you the quarter life crisis.

R is for Ring by Spring

Its basically the Notre Dame Goal to get engaged before graduation. Unless you're like me, who kinda just wants a boy to text back.

S is for South Quad

T is for Taco Bell

The late night go-to. God Bless.

U is for Undertones

The hottest hotties on campus. Some people chase jerseys, I chase the blazer-clad men with voices of angels.

V is for Vacation Days…oh wait.

The only way we know if it's a NATIONAL HOLIDAY is if we randomly don't get mail.

W is for the (CRAZY *SS) Wind

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

Beware of the South Quad vortex.

X is for the (E)Xpensive Merch at the Bookstore

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

Y is for Youtube.

AKA the answer to all your Kahn Academy prayers.

Z is for all the ZZZs you won’t get here.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//" expand=1]

No matter what, Love Thee Notre Dame!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
