College Life As Told By New Girl
Start writing a post

College can be rough, am I right? We're all running ourselves ragged between classes, homework, finals, clubs, and so much more! Things can get kind of chaotic around campus and our four years are an up and down, crazy mixture of emotions. And “New Girl" can perfectly describe it all! No matter if it's the crazy feelings of freshman year, struggles with difficult professors, or even the bittersweet day of graduation, we all have to admit that we totally see ourselves in each and every one of the characters! Sometimes, I have to admit, I even see myself in Schmidt!

1. Stepping onto campus for the first time as a student

Freshman fever, am I right?

2. Your orientation leaders when the tour is finally over

R.I.P. to our GPAs.

3. Thinking your professor is pretty cool on the first day of class, but he's secretly all like...

"He seems nice!"

"I've taken this class three times."

4. Realizing your professor is totally NOT pretty cool... on day two..

We've all seen it. These professors would make Winston proud.

5. When you and your roommate decide to be impulsive

Yeahhhh, you so didn't get a dog.

6. But decide to "study history" instead

Ode to the True American.

7. When you ask for extra credit, but get a HARD no

"I know I have a 59 in this class, but there's totally an assignment I can do for extra credit to bring that up to an A, right?

8. Pushing past tour groups that seem to only show up when you're running late to your most important class

It's funny how things change in just a year.

9. When your parents drive to campus to move you home for the summer

"See what happened was..."

10. When you take your first psychology class

Everyone thinks they're a pro after their first Psych class.

11. When you stay up all night working on an essay that never seems to be good enough

"You know what, nevermind. Let's go out"

12. Spending game day on the quad, tailgating with your friends

Is there anything better?

13. Watching campus fade away in the rearview mirror on Graduation Day

Final moments seem so fleeting. On to bigger and better things.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget.
