An Open Letter To the Outgoing SGA Officers

You rock, never change.

On Tuesday, our new Student Government Association Officers will take their oaths and officially become the next student representatives for our amazing university. It is kind of sad that we will not get the amazing chance for another year with them, but I know that the new ones will do amazingly. Before the old ones departed, however, I thought I would write a little something. Enjoy!

Caroline,

I am so glad that you were our president. Not only did you have a passionate love of Southern Miss, but you have a way with making people feel that they are important. You have had a large impact on my life, and I know that your impact on Southern Miss will forever be felt. While I am sad to see you go, I really do hope to get another chance to work with you in the future. I mean, as pastor's kids, we need to stick together, am I right? Thank you for being one of my biggest cheerleaders as I navigated the new world of being an English major. I know that I can sometimes be a lot to deal with, but you never made it seem like I was. Love you!

Franky,

You must be given some sort of accolade for having dealt with me for the past two years. It has been awesome to watch you go from our Freshman Associates director to our Treasurer. Thank you for seeing all of our ideas. While we may not be getting our Founder's Fest, at least we can say that we had an amazing year as Philanthrophy Commission. I hope that you continue to be involved with SGA in the future!

Christen,

Bless your sweet soul for choosing me for Election Commission. I know that I can sometimes be a lot to handle and deal with, but if you were annoyed, I really could not tell. I hope that you know that all of our Election Commission and what it was would not have been made possible without you (and Shelby). Thank you for putting up with me, my tardiness to meetings, and never making me feel like I was not important. Do not forget to slay very hard in the future. With yours being so bright, however, you just might need a pair of Ray Bans.

Jesse,

As sad as it may be, I did not get to know you all that well. However, from what I heard, you were the Joe Biden of Vice Presidents. I know that it has to be a bit painful for you to have lost the recent election, but have no fear, you will slay at whatever you do. You're not leavig, just defying gravity! (Was that reference not Wickedly awesome or what?)

Autumn,

I did not really get to know you that well, but I know that you are a Cubs fan. It's a big deal to celebrate your graduation, but still, winning the World Series was pretty amazing, right? #GoCubsGo

10 Lab Struggles All Students Can Relate To

From the hours spent on pre-lab, in the lab, and post-lab, lab takes up so much time and energy.

For all pre-med students (and anyone who takes a physical science class), you become immediately familiar with labs. But the labs in college are nothing like the trivial, simple, low-stakes labs that you completed in elementary, middle, and high school. Nothing compares to the brutal, rigorous, complex labs that you will endure during your years of college (except maybe brain surgery itself).

1. I don't want to go.



We all think it. We all say it. It's an every week sentiment, not just a once in a while feeling that you get with your other lectures. Walking to lab is like walking to your prison sentence.



2. Four hours is a crazy long time.



Some surgeries are shorter. Let's be honest-why are these labs so long? No eating, drinking, going to the bathroom, or sitting...is that even legal?



3. I am going to be efficient and productive.



My lab partner and I will read over the procedure several times, divide up the work, and be out of here in no time. Ideally, I want to be out of here in three hours max. Okay, more realistically it will be in 4 hours from the start time.

4. Why can't we sit?



But really, I still don't understand how we can be expected to stand and think for so long. The length of the lab itself is brutal enough to endure, but the fact that you don't get to sit means for sure that the post-lab grade is going to suffer.

5. I should drop the class.



I have to do this next week? And the week after? I don't think I'll ever take a class with a lab component ever again. r?

6. Does anyone else look like they know what they are doing?



The lab partners across from us look confused too, right? Or are we the only ones still on Part 1 of the experiment?

7. I don't care how I do. I want to get out of here as quickly as possible.



Whatever grade we get at this point, it doesn't really matter. I just need to get out of here. Plus, they drop the lowest grade, don't they?

8. Does my lab partner understand what we're doing...because I don't.

We haven't started the post lab, or done the calculations. Which part do I get, and which part can my lab partner figure out? The clock is ticking and my feet hurt.

9. Are all of the other groups leaving? Where did everyone go?

Oh shoot. Why did it get so quiet? Are they leaving too? Man, I've got to get out of here. My goggles are fogging up and giving me a headache.

10. Wow, these goggle marks are hideous.



These are going to last for at least another 3 hours. Well, at least I get to leave...and do this again next week.
