There's no place like home for the holidays.

4 Things All College Students Look Forward To When They Come Home For The Holidays

There is nothing more relieving than the feeling of being able to return home for the holidays after a long, hard semester - enjoying a few weeks away from the hustle and bustle of campus and the never-ending stress of your course load constantly breathing down your neck. Here are the top four things all college students look forward to when they come home for the holidays.

1. Savoring those home-cooked meals.


Nothing says "welcome home" more than a fresh home-cooked meal from your family. Just when you think you are going to lose your mind if you have to eat any more college food, the semester ends and you begin to remember the feeling of your home filling with the scent of heaven as your favorite meal cooks in the oven.

2. Having absolutely no school-work to worry about.


We all love the feeling of that sigh of relief knowing that the semester has finally ended and you get to enjoy a couple of well-deserved weeks off without the thought of school-work constantly lingering in the back of your mind.

You can enjoy your binge-watching guilt-free.

3. Catching up with family and friends that you haven't seen since you left in August.


It's hard to say goodbye to your newfound college friends as you return to your hometown on a three-week trip away from them, but one of the things that makes it all feel a little less hard is seeing the smiling faces of the friends and family that you have been away from for almost four months. Catching up and sharing new memories with those familiar faces is sure to bring about tons of laughs and joy this holiday season.

4. Enjoying the comfort of sleeping in our own beds.


No matter how much we try to make our home-away-from-home's carry the same warm and cozy feeling as our family homes, nothing can beat the familiar feeling of cuddling into your bed. As the comfort of your childhood bedroom surrounds you, you are sure to get a good night's sleep as soon as your head hits the pillow.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
