This is it, so make it count!

Dear Seniors, Welcome To the Final Show

Seniors! This is for you.

Whether it is going to be your last semester or last year, this is it! Before you know it, you will be off into the real world and fully "adulting." The most common questions we as Seniors get is "What are you going to do after you graduate?" More likely than not the answer will be "I don't know." AND THAT IS OKAY! It is okay not to have every aspect of your life figured out. Just enjoy your last semester or two of college and here are some of the perfect ways just to end your college career on a positive note:

1.  Don’t overwhelm yourself  


As graduation creeps up, it is important not to overwhelm your schedule too much. Although it is a good idea to have an idea of what you want to do with your degree, it is also okay to still figure out what you want to do. Enjoy your last semester and do not add more than you can handle. Yes, it is important to join that club and to go to that event and be super involved, but remember your priorities and that you are just one person and cannot do it all and that is ok! You were not made to do everything.

2.  Challenge yourself 


Although you do not want to add more than you can handle, make room to challenge yourself. Take a challenging course and do things that will challenge yourself to grow in ways that you could not think possible. A good challenge for each semester is to participate in something that kind of scares you, but something you know will be a memory you will not forget. At the end of it all, you will walk away saying you will do it again or you will not ever do it again, but yet it is a learning experience. Dive deeper in school. Dive deeper with your friends. Dive deeper into your faith. Dive deeper with yourself.

3.  Do well in school  


This is the last semester or year so it is so important to do well in school. Regardless of your major, GPA does matter in your life whether that be personal or for a job. Granted, some careers care more than others, but personally, your GPA should matter. It is more than a point system, it shows a little bit of your character. For some, school does not come naturally and they have to try harder than others, but at the end of the day, it shows where your priorities lay and how much effort and time you are willing to put in important things in life.

4. Go on day trips with friends  


Academics are important, but so is having fun! For those who are out of state, enjoy the state you are in. Soak in all the adventure that it brings you. Each month go on an adventure with your friends! Go travel and make memories. Take a break from the hectic life that school brings you. Breathe and remember life is not all about school. Yes, school is important, but so is living your best life. Once you are out of school, you won't be able to take time off you could in college, so embrace it and make sure you have the best semester and year of your life!

5. Finish strong


YOU ARE ALMOST THERE! FINISH STRONG! DO NOT SLACK RIGHT NOW! PUT IN 110% EFFORT AND I PROMISE YOU WILL GET WHAT YOU PUT IN! Go all in EVERYTHING: In school, your friends, your faith. Go all out and so when you get to the end of all this you can look back at the past four years and be so proud of yourself because you are FINALLY DONE! This is the moment you've been waiting for so enjoy it because adventure is out there and the world is yours so go out there and make it yours and make a difference!

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.
