5 Reasons Why You Should Go To Eagle Family Weekend

The best event at FGCU is less than two weeks away...

5 Reasons Why You Should Go To Eagle Family Weekend
Florida Gulf Coast University

Eagle Family Weekend is easily the best event at Florida Gulf Coast University - here's why YOU should go!

1. Connecting to your university 

There are a lot of events at FGCU, but what separates EFW from the rest is that it instills a deeper connection to your university. You learn about the different opportunities of each college, you participate in athletics, and you get to feel like you are really a part of your university.

2. Bonding with your family

Whether you're a freshman or a senior, you've probably experienced even a small bit of homesickness. The best part of EFW is that it joins your old home with your new home. Sharing your campus with your loved ones can be a really heartwarming feeling. PLUS you get to brag about how awesome and beautiful your school is!

3. School pride

We may not have a football team, or a Greek row, but who really cares? We're nationally ranked in athletics, housing, safety, and there are so many other benefits and amenities here to enjoy at FGCU. EFW instills a sense of pride for your university, you don't go to FSU or UF, maybe it's time to start celebrating that. You spend the majority of your time at FGCU, why not be proud and show some school spirit?

4. Free stuff!

I know I've got you all with this one, students get in free and that means free meals, free t-shirts, free swag... did I mention free meals?

5. IT'S FUN!

I could list off a thousand fun facts about EFW, but really, it is simply a fun event that celebrates what being an Eagle is all about.

I sure hope to see you there!

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
