Sixteen Songs For The Class Of 2016

Reflecting on the hits as our college years are coming to a close.

Sixteen Songs For The Class Of 2016
2 Chainz

My senior year is winding down, making my short lived college years come to an end. Memories are still prominent in my head from the time I was a freshman hanging with my newfound friends. Four years have gone by, and one thing we seemingly talk about is the music we've listened to since we first started college in Fall 2012. Hitmakers during the time tend to become obsolete until it's played for nostalgic purposes. It's ironic that songs can really trigger a notion of coming-of-age. Here are songs that will last a lifetime for the Class of 2016.

1. All Gold Everything - Trinidad James

All Gold Everything was the song every freshmen looked forward to during parties simply because of one line, "Shout out to them freshmen, on Instagram straight flexin."

2. F*ckin Problem - Kendrick Lamar feat. A$AP Rocky, Drake and 2 Chainz

Another party hit college students weren't fearful to sing aloud.

3. Pop That - French Montana

It may not be the twerking anthem (Back That Azz Up has already fulfilled the spot for over a decade) but you've definitely hit the dance floor when this song came on.

4. Karate Chop - Future feat. Lil Wayne

The greatest way to start off your first summer break.

5. Collard Greens - Schoolboy Q feat. Kendrick Lamar

The song that brought you and your high school friends together over the summer.

6. Started from the Bottom - Drake

It wasn't just the famous Drake single that caught everyone's attention. His 2014 hit album, "Nothing Was the Same" was a staple for any road trip.

7. Drunk In Love - Beyoncé

As all of us were stressing over finals week, Beyonce decided to drop this gem towards the end of our Fall 2013 semester.

8. Happy - Pharrell

The song that annoyed us in the mornings, but kept us pushing during our sophomore year.

9. Anaconda - Nicki Minaj

Some people had mixed reviews when Nicki Minaj dropped the Anaconda video, but it was a song that made you appreciate your assets even more.

10. Loyal - Chris Brown

The summer hitmaker that had the most faithful sing with pride.

11. Hot Boy - Bobby Shmurda

The one Vine that became an instant hit across the world.

12. No Type - Rae Sremmurd

When this duo hit the scene, there was no stopping them.

13. Tuesday - iLoveMakonnen

Although iLoveMakonnen was affiliated with other hit songs, this brought him on the charts.

14. I Don't F*ck With You - Big Sean

An anthem for all the college students who found out about their cheating significant other.

15. Hotline Bling - Drake

If you thought the number one song was going to stay in the summer, you thought wrong.

16. Jumpman - Future ft. Drake

Still kickin' it with this song playing in the background.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
