Dear Senior Year Of College

Dear Senior Year Of College

Dear Senior Year at Seton Hall,

As the summer comes to a close and my beach days dwindle down, I want you to know that this academic year is going to be the ending to quite a few things in my life. I also want you to know that I am expecting a whole lot out of you, senior year.

For the past three years at this university, I have given my all to my classes, extra curricular activities, and internships. I have strived to create long lasting friendships and relationships with my peers.

But I do know that this blissful senior year at SHU cannot last forever. It is by the end of this year that I will take on new responsibilities and officially enter the world as a real adult (because currently I am a fake adult). In under a year’s time I will be searching for a job that will hopefully lead to a career, and starting to pay back my dreaded student loans (Nicki, help me out)!

I hope that this year contains some or all of the following: self-love, happiness, fulfillment, and dancing. I don’t want to just dance at the bar with my friends once a week, I want to dance through my classes, through my activities, through my writing, and in my heart. I hope when I wake up in the morning that I am (metaphorically) dancing through life, dancing to the next part, next class, whatever I am doing that day.

I expect this year to be filled with a lot of quality time with the people I’ve met in college that have made it all worthwhile. I hope we all learn something from each other this year. Whether that means relating to one another in a new way or simply looking back on the friendships we’ve built and how they came to be.

I expect this year to be filled with those moments. Those moments that I cannot put into words. Those moments that would probably change things if they didn’t exist or change the way things have happened. I met one of my best friends because I noticed she was wearing a Grateful Dead necklace our freshman year, and I thought to myself, “Man, this girl is cool!” Since then, we’ve become so close and she is someone I will hold onto forever. But if I hadn’t noticed her necklace, would I have reached out? Would we be friends to this day?

I want more of those moments that will make a significant impact on me.

I am expecting to have a lot of fun this year. But I am also expecting to be prepared for what lies ahead. For that dreaded word, the future. Although I live my life moment to moment, I hope you can help me keep that peace of mind about what lies ahead and keep my excitement about it too!

And please, send me off the right way.

Let's see if you meet my expectations.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

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.
