Yes, it’s that girl who is always offering to cover shifts for you all here.

Never would I have thought two years ago that I would enjoy me on-campus job as much as I do. I love selling tickets to students, assisting visitors with questions they have and drawing all that art on the white board that decorates our information desk. While I hold all these tasks dear to my heart, you know that my absolute favorite part of this job is the friendships I have been able to create with all of you.

I am so grateful for all the fun memories we have shared. I’ve loved all those late night, coat-checking DIVE dance shifts, our all-staff get together, and even just the conversations I’ve shared with all of you while working weekly shifts, I wouldn’t have traded those moments for anything in the world. Those moments have given me a chance to get to know you all so much better, learn about your lives, and make close friends I wouldn’t have found anywhere else.

You all are some of my favorite people on campus, not going to lie. I mean, there has to be a reason I walk by the desk multiple times a day to chat with you all. You all have gotten to know me to a point where you instantly know how to cheer me up when I am in a bad mood. If I am just stressed with school, or just annoyed about the world in general, you all know instantly how to put out the fire growing inside of me.

While a lot of people can accomplish what I stated above, you all especially know when it is best to just let me be by myself. I think you all have figured out by now that since I am usually on the more talkative side, I tend to be very quiet when I am not in the best of moods. While any normal person may decide to ask me what is going on, you all know that it is better to just leave me be unless I bring it up, as I probably will start changing the subject instantly.

I appreciate you all more than you probably realize. You all never fail to make me feel loved and supported, and you never fail to make me laugh and just plain happy. You all have taught me so much about leadership, trust, confidence, and kindness that it would be hard for me to repay you with equal knowledge. You all make me smile from ear to ear every day, and that is something that I appreciate the most.

All I really want to say is thank you. Thank you for always listening to my rants. Thank you for always making me laugh. Thank you for always showing that you care, and also for putting up with me even when I get really annoying. This whole experience we call Gustavus would not be complete without you all gracing my life.

Stay Golden,

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
