7 Perks Of Being Off Campus After Everyone's Left

Your friends may all be in a different state, but there are still things to celebrate!

7 Perks Of Being Off Campus After Everyone's Left

Homesick, but have to stay on campus for a few days after fall finals? Make the best out of it by enjoying the perks of an empty campus!

1. No parties to keep you up at 1am


If you go to a "party school" like me, loud parties on the block are a possibility on any day of the week. Take this time to enjoy your unbothered Zzz's!

2. An empty gym


Not having to wait for any machines is total bliss. And not having to worry about people seeing you fall off the treadmill! Is that second one just me?...

3. A smaller chance of seeing that person you hooked up with last month, or an annoying classmate.


It does suck being away from your friends...but nice being away from people you DON'T want to see.

4. More time to wrap your gifts in peace


If you go home for a gift-giving holiday, spending a few extra days on campus gives you time to listen to your favorite holiday music and wrap gifts without your family walking in and spoiling the surprise!

5. Lots of hours to make $$


Even if staying at school to work wasn't your choice, make the most of it by working for your biggest paycheck of the semester. Think of it as a gift to yourself!

6. Much needed quality time with yourself.


It's normal to want to hop on the next train to see your family immediately after finishing your last final, but if you can't at least try to enjoy your time alone. You worked hard for months and deserve some relaxation! If you live with roommates, finally having some true alone time may be beneficial.

7. Time to do the fun, winter-y things you missed out on during the semester


Too busy studying to go ice skating, buy some hot chocolate, or explore your local Christmas Village this year? Do it now while you still can! The holidays will be over before you know it.

1. Why is Wilson Hall so complicated to navigate? Even as a senior, I still get lost in Wilson. As a freshman, I was warned about the unnecessary complexity of the building, was laughed at by upperclassman for my confused looks on the first day of school and walked and rewalked the whole hall before finding my classroom. #annoying.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.
