13 Fall Adventures College Students Should Take Part In, At Least Once
Guys Girl

Fall semester is starting, and the temperatures are finally starting to dip down in the mornings and evenings. You know what that means? There are plenty of things coming up we get to look forward to! (And no, none of them have to do with classes starting up).

1. Football Games

Okay, so this kind of has to do with classes. Everyone gets to see their favorite teams play, tailgate with the friends, and have an even better excuse to have a beer on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. But let's face it; if you're not rooting for the Owls, are you even watching football?

2. Haunted Houses

My favorite thing, ever. I love some haunted houses. Whether you're going to Camp Blood, Netherworld, or even just enjoying Six Flags this fall, there are plenty of opportunities for someone to scare the crap out of you. (Only hopefully, not literally).

3. Bonfires

The best nights are those around a firepit, with a warm glass of apple cider, just handing out with friends and listening to nature.

4. Camping Trip

This can tie in with bonfires, but fall is the best time to go camping! Not only is the temperature perfect for it, but all the bugs are dying and going back to where ever the hell they came from! No, there is no swimming, but there is nothing like roasting marshmallows on the said bonfire and then sleeping under the stars!

5. Semi-Formals

This is for all you Greeks out there, I know you're all looking forward to those semi-formal nights; whether it is for the drinks, the food, or seeing your date looking extra sexy, I'll leave that part up to you!

6. State Fairs

Everyone loves a good state fair! The rides may be sketchy, but that food is always kicking. Deep fried Oreos are my favorite, and they go perfectly with a homemade strawberry wine or lemonade!

7. Rodeos

Cowboys. Wranglers. Horses. 'Nuff said.

8. Amusement Parks

Yes, you can go all year round. But can you enjoy it without either A: freezing your ass off; or B: sweating your ass off. No, I didn't think so. (Plus there are always fall or Halloween themed events to look forward to!)

9. Corn Mazes

To this day, I have never been to a corn maze. I would love to go sometime, but they weren't popular where I was raised and since I've lived in Georgia, I have gotten sick every time we have tried to go to one. Maybe it's a sign the Children of the Corn are trying to give me.

10. Scary Movies

They always come out with new scary movies in fall, and who doesn't love to be scared? Go see Annabelle: Creation, IT, or Jigsaw this fall and tell me you didn't scream your head off after. No worries, I know you're lying ahead of time.

11. Costume Shopping

This is an event all on its own and anyone who argues with me is lying.

12. Go to Halloween Horror Nights, specifically.

If you have not been, you have not experienced a truly horrific time. Multiple haunted houses and mazes, plus scare zones through out Universal? I cried the first time I went, mostly because I was 12 but if it helps you feel better when you start crying, don't remind yourself I was so young.

13. Halloween Parties

Only the best time to dress however you want, be whoever you want, and show Joe that you really do look like a girl outside of your Lab class.Damn those safety rules about clothing and shoes. (No attire rules at Halloween parties!)

Fall is definitely the best time of the year, and these aren't even all of your options!

What If The U.N. Actually United The Nations?

This is me taking a break from being cynical and imagining how the world could be one day.


By now, people are probably sick of hearing me talk about myself, so I’m changing it up this week. In keeping with the subject of my J-Term class, I’m asking myself a political what-if question. What if we could create a sovereign global government firmly grounded in justice that could actually adjudicate Earth’s many disparate nation-states into one unified world government?

    The Basics Of The United Nations

    As the General Assembly convenes, here is the United Nations 101


    For an organization that literally unites the nations, it amazes me how little is taught about the United Nations in schools, or at least where I went to school. It wasn't until I went to college and got a higher education that I learned the basics of the United Nations. I believe that every American should know at least the basics of what the United Nations does, especially since our country is one of the 5 permanent members. So here are the main "organs" of the United Nations.
