To The Girl Who Didn't Rush, You Will Still Find Your Place

There are many other clubs and programs you can join.

Coming into my freshmen year, I made the choice not to rush. I didn't think sororities were a bad thing; I just figured there were other and better financial ways for me to meet new people.

But after seeing the bid day videos on Snapchat, social pictures on Instagram, and Greek letters on room doors, I started to almost feel left out. Like I was the only one missing out on part of the college cultural experience. I almost began to regret not joining a sorority. But as the semester went on, I made some new friends and found my group of people.

So for those of you who are in the same position, I was in, YOU WILL BE OKAY. It seems like everyone is a part of Greek life your first year, but that's because everyone is excited about being a part of something new. As people get older, most people start spending more of their time focusing on their major.

And if you're worried about making friends, join a club where you can meet new people. I made most of my friends through a campus organization, where we do community service and have social events.

And if you still feel like you're missing out, you can rush in the spring or your sophomore year.

Just know that there are other people who are in the same boat as you, who are looking to meet new people as well. Greek life is a part of college culture, but so is learning new things, trying new things, and meeting new people.

So instead of sitting on social media and looking at all the Greek life pictures people post, go to the involvement fair and start posting some fun moments of your own.

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.
