10 Thoughts You Have While Walking On FSU's Campus

School is back in session, you're back on campus walking around taking it all in as the new semester kicks off.


If you're like me and took the summer off, this is your first time back on campus for a couple months now, and some things may seem a little different.

1. It's so hot. 

This is a given, and most definitely a universal observation made by every single student at FSU. I definitely did not miss the 95 degree heat that comes with the beautiful FSU campus.

2. Dang, I forgot how much I have to walk. 

When you attend a college with scarce parking availability, you end up parking wherever you can. If you're lucky, you find a spot near your class. However, most of the time that is not the case and you have to walk anywhere from half a mile to a mile to get to class. In this Florida heat, you're sure to work up a sweat on your way to and from class.

3. Where is that building again? 

We all know the struggle of finding a building on this campus. Our schedules only have the three letter acronym, and there are so many buildings that it can sometimes get confusing if the class isn't in one of your major-specific buildings.

4. Am I in the right class?

You're pretty sure you're in the right room, but you're not 100% certain. Plus, if you end up in the wrong place, you run the risk of being late/missing your right class and being dropped from it due to the wonderful first-day-drop policy FSU has in place. So, inevitably, during the first week your best bet is to ask the other people in the classroom if they are there for the same class.

5. Where did the Union go?

A staple part of FSU's campus is the student union. The union was home to Market Wednesday, Subway, the UPS store, Einstein Bro's Bagels, Bowling, and so much more. However, the university recently tore it down and is rebuilding it, so campus feels a little empty without it.

6. Why isn't the University building more parking garages? 

If you are a student at FSU and have your car here, you know the all-too-real struggle of finding parking. If I had to guess, there would be 1 parking spot for every 3 or 4 students at FSU. That is ridiculous and is the recipe for extreme frustration when you need to get to class and can't find anywhere to park. FSU, please provide more student parking!!!!

7. Screw this line. 

When you go to the bookstore only to be greeted by a line of 200+ students. Nobody has time for that. Literally, you could go at any time of the day and the line will be the same length. Pro tip, go to Bill's you guys. I went to the main bookstore twice and left twice because of the line. I went to Bill's and didn't even have to wait at all.

8. How are they wearing jeans? 

We all see those few people walking around this insane heat. You see them and just kind of tilt your head in confusion like are you comfortable? And if you are, how? How can someone wear jeans in this heat and not have a heat stroke? This is something I will never understand.

9. It's good to be back. 

Again, especially if you're like me and went home for the summer, it feels so good to finally be back on campus. Walking around campus with your 40,000 fellow Seminoles, getting back into the class routine, and waiting for the football season to start is truly an amazing feeling.

10. FSU truly has the most beautiful campus. 

A thought shared not only by Seminoles, but people all across the nation. FSU's campus is regularly voted one of the most beautiful campuses in the country, and for good reason. From the huge, ancient oaks covered in the spanish moss, to the scenic Legacy Walk, to the beautiful, characteristic red-brick buildings that make up our campus, FSU is truly a site to see.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
