A Complete Guide To Saint Mary's College
Molly Grimes

Saint Mary's is not just a college, it's a lifestyle. If you go to Saint Mary's, you know exactly what I'm talking about and if you don't, you're going to wish you did.

When you take your first drive down the Avenue, you know that this is going to be your home away from home for the next four years of your life. There is nothing more exciting than that first glimpse of your castle...otherwise known as Le Mans. This place is magical and the memories you and your friends make are forever. As I reminisce on my past three years here at Saint Mary's, there are a few things that everyone needs to know or be reminded of about this place:

You do not want to miss out on Midnight Breakfast.

What is better than tater tots and bacon? Tater tots, bacon, and table dancing in the dining hall during finals week! It's even better when President Cervelli makes a cameo in the congo line.

Complete strangers become your sisters.

A stranger you share a class with and live across the hall from will quickly become your confidant. You are around them 24/7 so they will know what makes you laugh and cry. They are also your go-to when you need a shoulder to cry on or someone to take a late night Steak and Shake run with.

Class at 9:00 am? Wake up at 8:45 am.

The best part of going to such a small school is the short walk time to class. You can practically get from one end of campus to the other in under ten minutes flat. Makes it easy to roll out of bed fifteen minutes before class and still be there early.

There is only one place to be on Thursday nights.

Club Fever, Michiana's hottest night club... I think this speaks for itself. (Disclaimer: must be 21+).

Jimmy Johns literally sucks the soul out of your Munch Money.

When you don't want to eat in the dining hall (which is every day), Jimmy John's is first on your speed dial. Add a drink and chips to your order and you are well on your way to a Munch Money balance of $0.00.

Blinkie is a godsend.

When you're sitting in your car after your aforementioned Steak and Shake run, there's nothing better than seeing Blinkie round the corner to take you safely back to your dorm.

The best day of your life will be the day your Saint Mary's ring comes in the mail.

Saint Mary's is all about tradition and the biggest tradition of them all is the class ring. You dream about the day you get to put it on and have a photo shoot around campus. #ringsdoingthings am I right?!

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
