The 5 Best Places To Take A Nap At SIUE

The 5 Best Places To Take A Nap At SIUE

You can find a place to nap anywhere you go, if you try hard enough.

You ever just need to take a nap somewhere? You ever just have one of those days where you feel like you can't go to class, you don't want to do anything, but you do want to sleep? Well, after driving to campus and you're already there you might as well find a place to crash. Here are the X best places to take a nap on campus

1. The Library

Specifically, the second floor to the left where this is a bunch of comfy chairs and it's where the quiet area is so that makes it even better. I'm sure no one will bother you there.

2. The Student Sucess Center

Really in those comfy chairs wherever you can find one, but there is quite a few inside the SSC.

3. The Quad

I know it sounds kind of weird, but if you have a hammock there are a few places on the quad that you can hang it up and take a nap between classes.

4. Dunham Hall

Dunham hall holds the theater in it and there are tons of comfy seats in there, as long as there isn't a class going on in there you could slip in and just take a quick nap.

5. In The MUC

Not in the bottom part, but the upstairs. There are some big booths up there that might be nice if you just can't take it anymore and really need to take a nap. There are also comfy seats just sitting in the hallways upstairs that you could nap on.

If you're really tired and just really need to take a nap you can find a place anywhere pretty much. Nobody will judge you unless you snore really loud, they may laugh then.

A Letter To Graduating High School Seniors

One door closes while another one opens.

Everything is happening so fast. You realize that you're playing in your last game or singing in your last concert with peers you grew up with since you were 5, and it's all so sad that the era is over. On top of all these emotions, you have to think about the future with everyone asking you the same questions. "Where are you going to school?" " What are you going to major in?" "What kind of career do you want?" But, you're also asking yourself these questions.

I've been living on this planet for two decades now, about to finish my second year of college, and I can honestly say that you never know where life is going to take you. You think you're right where you need to be and then all of a sudden, you're somewhere else.

When I was very young, maybe five or so, I was fascinated by dinosaurs and told everyone that I wanted to be a paleontologist when I grew up. I imagined myself spending my life digging up fossils and putting them in museums for everyone to see.

Then I got a little older, and I wanted to play professional baseball. I had played ever since I was three years old, and I loved the game so much that I wanted it to my career. The numbers of how few guys actually went pro didn’t scare me. Then I got to high school and realized that I'm not so good at baseball. At least, not as good as the best high school players.

During my sophomore year of high school, I took an intro to engineering class and decided that I wanted to be an engineer. I wasn't sure what branch, but that was the fit for me. Then I discovered roller coasters and how much joy they bring to me, so I wanted to design them. Well, last semester I was taking engineering classes and realized that 1) engineering is really hard and 2) I didn't like what I was doing.

Now I'm a marketing major and minoring in fashion and retail studies looking to get into the fashion world after college.

I sat in on a seminar for one of my classes this semester, and this guy was talking to us about how he went to school for accounting, and he was a tax accountant after school. He realized that he didn't want to do that and now, he's the CEO of Designer Shoe Warehouse.

So, it's perfectly okay to not know what you want to do with the rest of your life right this second, and it's okay to take some time to figure it out. Everything happens for a reason, whether you know why or not. You just have to be patient because sooner or later, you will end up where you need to be.

Loans Are Not Your Best Friends

They're available for a reason, don't fall for it so easily

Common sense tells some of us that loans are bad, just from past experiences of our parents or other adult figures in our lives. However, for the other 44 million risk takers it may look like opportunity.

An opportunity to have extra money, more clothes, vacations and a beautiful bank account … for the moment.

Of course, many college students have no other option than to take out a loan due to a lack of financial aid and/or other contributing circumstances, but the key words I just used were “no other option.”

Loans should be used as your very last resort when you’re in great need of funds, whether it be for school or personal use. Loaners, specifically universities and colleges, are always extremely generous when offering advances. Don’t let them hoax you.

$5,000 sounds amazing in the moment they offer it, but six months after you graduate that money is due. Need an extension? No problem, you’ll just owe more than you borrowed.

I’ve come across a handful of students who are so excited to borrow a ton of money from their university and their explanation for the loan is, “I’m going to be in debt anyway,” or “I’m going to be rich when I become a doctor. I can pay it back.”

Don’t be one of these people.

In the long run, these unnecessary loans can be detrimental to your credit score and even prevent you from being able to receive finances when you actually need it.

Need more? Here are five examples of acceptable loans:

1. Paying for college classes

Apply for at least five scholarships first.

2. On the verge of being homeless

3. NEED a vehicle

Don't exceed $5,000.

4. Summer Classes

One or two classes only. Financial aid is rarely offered to anyone during this time.

5. Investing in your business/future

A start off loan, but don't exceed what you can't return.

Here are five examples of bad loans:

1. Paying another loan

Don't borrow and borrow to pay someone else. You'll still be in debt.

2. Upcoming vacation

3. Newer/better car

Keep your current car until it falls apart. Literally.

4. Braces/bigger butt/new boobs

Save your own money for this!

5. To quit your job
