Homecoming At Adrian College Is The Best Day Of The Year

The greatest day to be a bulldog.

Homecoming At Adrian College Is The Best Day Of The Year
Adrian College

This past weekend was Homecoming at Adrian College, arguably one of the best weekends of the entire year. Bulldogs from all over the country gathered in Adrian to celebrate our school and just have fun together. This was my second Homecoming as a Bulldog, and it was just as exciting as the first. Meeting alumni and talking about school was inspiring, and catching up with old friends was amazing.

The festivities started on Friday with the annual Walk of Fame. All of the athletic teams lined the sidewalk and congratulated all of the new inductees of the AC Athletic Hall of Fame. These new inductees included the 2007-2008 men's hockey team, baseball players, softball players, and all other players. Standing with my team, I could see the history of Adrian College and the great athletes that came before me. Their faces inspired me to be as great as them and always show my love for my school.

Saturday was definitely the big day. It started with Skate with the Bulldogs, a public skate at Arrington Ice Arena. Figure skaters and hockey players alike came to the ice to have fun and share our love of Bulldog ice sports. After that was the parade, my personal favorite. Everyone, and I mean everyone, comes to the parade. Sororities, sports teams, frats, clubs, you name it. We all want to walk and show our AC spirit.

The day ended with the Homecoming football game at Docking Stadium. Students, family, alumni, and all walks of life gathered to watch this game and celebrate the history and beauty of Adrian College. The Bulldogs won the game, but that wasn't the important part. Getting to see friends that we haven't seen in a while and have fun together was the important part.

I already can't wait for next year's Homecoming. I know that it will be just as fun and exciting, maybe even more so. There's nothing like spending a weekend showing your love for your school and singing the fight song at the top of your lungs.

It's always a great day to be a bulldog, but Homecoming is an even greater day to be a bulldog.

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.
