A freshman's take on college spring break

Spring Break: everyone’s savior from midterms. The only break that college students get during the spring semester. No matter how much you love college, this break is desperately needed by all. The weeks leading up to break are the worst. They are filled with lots of exams, coffee, and stress, and very little sleep. Frat parties and bars get emptier and emptier because everyone is at the library with their heads in books. But soon, you manage to finish that final paper, take, and hopefully pass, that last exam, and it is finally spring break. All of your worries seem to slip away and all of the obligations and work you have to do go to the back of your mind because you can only think of one think right now, it is spring break.

There are two different kinds of people over spring break: the party people and the “relaxers”. The party people are the ones that go on the well-known “Spring Break” trip. Many students go to places like Panama City Beach, Florida and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Typically, you go with friends, and you spend the week drinking on the beach and trying to piece together the events from the night before. This is the crazy spring break that is shown in practically every stereotypical movie about college. Beaches, booze, bronzer, and of course, barf. As amazingly terrible as this sounds, every college student goes on the legendary and unforgettable spring break trip at one point in their life.

Then there are the people that do the opposite of partying, and they go home. The “relaxers” typically go home to their nice, comfy beds, and sleep all break. Sleeping in late, eating food that isn’t from a dining hall, watching way too much Netflix, and hopefully hanging out with friends (if any are home), but the chances of that are unlikely, because for some reason, every college your friend goes to has a different spring break. Strange right? And as the end of break nears, you realize how much work you actually have, and how much you should have done, but put it off until the Sunday night before school starts again. Spring break is never long enough. There is never enough time to catch up on all of the sleep deprivation left over from school.

Spring break makes you realize how fast the year is going by. When you get back from break, the year is almost over. As fun as it is to get away for a week, it makes you remember how great school and friends are, and then you become excited to go back, despite the looming threat of more homework and more exams. And let’s be honest, the best part of spring break is getting back to school and seeing your friends again so you can tell each other about all of the crazy (or not so crazy) things you did.

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 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.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.
