Big 10 Schools As MSU Fraternities

Ever wonder where BIG 10 schools would fall into if they were their own fraternity? Which BIG 10 frat would you go to?

1. Northwestern University: Sigma Nu

The smartest of the smart get into Northwestern and the coolest of the cool get into SNU, it only right that they get paired together. If Northwestern was it's own frat, it would have Brad and Chad standing by the door in fully decked out VV gear asking who you know in the frat.

2. University of Michigan: Psi Upsilon

Psi U is the frat that believes they're so much better than they really are. The nice "castle-like" house matches up with UMich's Big House. Both also seem to be hated by basically everyone so there's another comparison.

3. University of Wisconsin: FIJI (Phi Gamma Delta)

Wisconsin's notable "Jump Around" is an exact mirror image of a normal Fiji party, completely crowded and a little overrated but its still fun to be a part of. And who wouldn't like to see the Wisconsin Badger on the FIJI jetski?!

4. University of Illinois: Alpha Epsilon Pi

AEPI and Illinois are the nice boys. If Illinois were frat brothers, they wouldn't try anything tricky, the boys you can trust with anything. Illinois doesn't seem to be making any steps to being ranked and AEPI seems pretty comfortable in their standings in Greek life.

5. Purdue University: Beta Theta Pi

Like Beta, Purdue are just the hard working nice guys. If you ever need someone to help you out with homework, or to fix something, Beta is always readily available. Purdue is the same way, they just seem like they're always in the right place at the right time. Whether that be where they are in rankings or how accomplished the school is, they're always just around.

6. Penn State: PIKE (Pi Kappa Alpha)

I think this explains itself. You try and find a better pairing than this.

7. Ohio State University: Delta Sigma Phi

Ohio State is the school you always dreamed about going to, but looking back at your decision on whatever school you ended up in, you're glad you're not at Ohio State. That's the exact same thing with Delt Sigs. You always dream of living and partying at their big mansion of a house, but then you realize that you would never fit in there and life is good again.

8. University of Minnesota: Phi Delta Theta

Just like Phi Delt on campus, Minnesota is so far away from the rest of the BIG 10, you just kind of forget that it's involved. very nice school, but no one acknowledges it cause its so far away from everything else.

9. Michigan State University: Sigma Alpha Epsilon

Maybe I'm biased, but I feel like Michigan state holds up to the values of SAE, big white house with big frat parties obviously matches up with MSU. have you been on campus during St Patty's day?!

10. University of Maryland: Sigma Pi

The only facts that I have about this is that Marylander only like talking with Marylanders and Sig Pi only likes talking to Sig Pi. The boys at Sig Pi never like to social with girls, they stay stag with their boys.

11. University of Indiana: Phi Kappa Psi

Indiana thinks their the shit cause they got their prestigious Kelley Business program but in reality, they can't compare to any other school in the BIG 10. Similar to Phi Psi, they think they are the shit because they picked up Delta Chi's (DCHI) house for next year, but in reality nothing is going to change for them.

12. University of Iowa: Alpha Sigma Pi

Going along the lines of houses, Alpha Sig is on the rise with their new house. Same with Iowa. Iowa is increasing its rankings and is coming to destroy some brackets. Everyone better watch out for Iowa this coming basketball season.

13. Rutgers University: Triangle

Rutger's is just trying to live it's life. Struggling to rise in the ranks of the BIG 10, we let them think they're in the BIG 10 and some type of competition. Triangle is the same way in that we just let them think they are in the social aspect of greek life, but in reality, they fit better with the business fraternities and sororities.

14. University of Nebraska: Farmhouse

Corn. That's all I got to say about that.

It's Time To Thank Your First Roommate

Not the horror story kind of roommate, but the one that was truly awesome.

Nostalgic feelings have recently caused me to reflect back on my freshman year of college. No other year of my life has been filled with more ups and downs, and highs and lows, than freshman year. Throughout all of the madness, one factor remained constant: my roommate. It is time to thank her for everything. These are only a few of the many reasons to do so, and this goes for roommates everywhere.

You have been through all the college "firsts" together.

If you think about it, your roommate was there through all of your first college experiences. The first day of orientation, wishing you luck on the first days of classes, the first night out, etc. That is something that can never be changed. You will always look back and think, "I remember my first day of college with ____."

You were even each other's first real college friend.

You were even each other's first real college friend.

Months before move-in day, you were already planning out what freshman year would be like. Whether you previously knew each other, met on Facebook, or arranged to meet in person before making any decisions, you made your first real college friend during that process.

The transition from high school to college is not easy, but somehow you made it out on the other side.

It is no secret that transitioning from high school to college is difficult. No matter how excited you were to get away from home, reality hit at some point. Although some people are better at adjusting than others, at the times when you were not, your roommate was there to listen. You helped each other out, and made it through together.

Late night talks were never more real.

Remember the first week when we stayed up talking until 2:00 a.m. every night? Late night talks will never be more real than they were freshman year. There was so much to plan for, figure out, and hope for. Your roommate talked, listened, laughed, and cried right there with you until one of you stopped responding because sleep took over.

You saw each other at your absolute lowest.

It was difficult being away from home. It hurt watching relationships end and losing touch with your hometown friends. It was stressful trying to get in the swing of college level classes. Despite all of the above, your roommate saw, listened, and strengthened you.

...but you also saw each other during your highest highs.

After seeing each other during the lows, seeing each other during the highs was such a great feeling. Getting involved on campus, making new friends, and succeeding in classes are only a few of the many ways you have watched each other grow.

There was so much time to bond before the stresses of college would later take over.

Freshman year was not "easy," but looking back on it, it was more manageable than you thought at the time. College only gets busier the more the years go on, which means less free time. Freshman year you went to lunch, dinner, the gym, class, events, and everything else possible together. You had the chance to be each other's go-to before it got tough.

No matter what, you always bounced back to being inseparable.

Phases of not talking or seeing each other because of business and stress would come and go. Even though you physically grew apart, you did not grow apart as friends. When one of you was in a funk, as soon as it was over, you bounced right back. You and your freshman roommate were inseparable.

The "remember that one time, freshman year..." stories never end.

Looking back on freshman year together is one of my favorite times. There are so many stories you have made, which at the time seemed so small, that bring the biggest laughs today. You will always have those stories to share together.

The unspoken rule that no matter how far apart you grow, you are always there for each other.

It is sad to look back and realize everything that has changed since your freshman year days. You started college with a clean slate, and all you really had was each other. Even though you went separate ways, there is an unspoken rule that you are still always there for each other.

Your old dorm room is now filled with two freshmen trying to make it through their first year. They will never know all the memories that you made in that room, and how it used to be your home. You can only hope that they will have the relationship you had together to reflect on in the years to come.

10 Problems Girls With THICK Hair Always Get Tangled Up In

"Wow, you have so much hair!"

83
views

When you have thick hair, you're very well aware of all the problems that come with it. For those of you who do not have thick hair, here are just 10 things people with thick hair have to go through.

1. You always feel hot because your hair is just SO thick 

On the plus side, our hair can be used as ear muffs when it's cold. On the down side, summer (and "spring" and "fall" if you live in the south).

2. Shedding 

How'd that hair get there?! No one knows.

3. You go through ponytail holders like nobody's business 

Have you ever broken a ponytail holder the FIRST time you tried to use it? Well, thick-haired people have.

4. Don't even bother brushing 

If you have thick AND curly hair like moi, brushing is NOT an option unless your hair is wet.

5. Speaking of wet hair...

Oh, you want your hair DRY? Good luck with having dry hair after you shower. It'll be a while.

6. Want to dye your hair?

Be prepared to spend all day at the hair salon. You have to go through ROUNDS of bleach before you can even start to color your hair. And also be prepared to shell out at least $100.

7. You have to style you hair in LAYERS 

You'd be better off just putting it in a ponytail and calling it a say. Ain't nobody got time for that!

8. Short hair? Good luck!

Having short thick hair, while taking less time to wash, is even EXTRA thick because the curls have nowhere to go.

9. Long hair? In summer?

If you've ever had long thick hair, you'll know that summertime is the. Absolute. Worst. You're sweating not even five seconds of being outside and the frizz. Oh my goodness, the frizz.

10. Headaches 

With you hair being on top of your head all the time, headaches are a natural occurrence.

On the plus side, my hairdresser always says "wow your hair is so thick!"
