Did you know that season 15 will be the final season for "Criminal Minds?" I'm not exactly happy about it. I'm not ready to see them go. There are a few memorable episodes throughout the show's run that were very well written and creepy. The list below just names a few.

When Morgan travels to Chicago to celebrate his mother's birthday, he quickly becomes the main suspect in a series of murders. The rest of the BAU are determined to clear his name, all the while digging very deep into Morgan's unshared past.

Reid is held hostage by an extremely religious man with multiple personality disorder. The BAU walk on eggshells trying to rescue their friend alive. However, they have no idea where Reid is being held captive.

5. Season 3, Episode 3 "Scared To Death"

9. Season 4, Episode 21 "A Shade of Gray"

While the BAU investigates a series of child abductions and murders in New Jersey, they notice that the latest case doesn't match the pattern of the previous abductions. This causes the crew to suspect the victim's family of being involved with the crime.

10. Season 5, Episode 13 "Risky Business"

Several teenagers commit suicide within a two-week period, which raises suspicion with the BAU. After some searching, they come across an online "choking game," which is treated as a contest amongst surrounding schools. Another teenager is thought to be responsible for the game's creation, but is he really the culprit?

11. Season 6, Episode 5 "Safe Haven"

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
