The ABCs Of Scranton

A day in the life of a Scranton Student.

The ABCs Of Scranton
University of Scranton

The University of Scranton is a place like no other. Unless you attend the U, there is no way to understand the love that most of us have for it. There are so many things on campus that makes it unique and separates it from any other university in the country. Here are a few examples in the form of the ABCs:


is for academics since we are all so smart.


is for brunch. The best meal of the the week.


is for Chik-fil-A. The only one in the area.


is for DeNaples. The center of our lives.


is for Einstein's and the best bagels on campus.


is for Flex, which runs out way too fast.


is for GLM. Otherwise known as the brothel.


is for hills. It's why we all have nice calves.


is for ice cream on 3rd floor.


is for Jesuits.


is for key, which someone is always losing.


is for LSC Study Rooms.


is for the memories that we make during our four years here.


is for New Jersey and New York because that's where most of us are from.


is for omelets. The best part of brunch (besides the smoothies).


is for professors, who are always there when you need help.


is for quiet hours. A rule that is rarely enforced.


is for Royals, which we are all proud to be.


is for squirrels. There is no explanation necessary.


is for tray. Like a "tray" of pizza.


is for umbrella because it is always raining.


is for very cold. Scranton has super chilly winters.


is for wolves. The Royal Wolves.


is for eXams because they seem to happen all the time.


is for Yik Yak. Our source of all gossip.


is for ZZZZZZZs because we don't get a lot of them around here.

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.
