7 Reasons Why I Need To Be Back In Syracuse

Beyond ready to get back to the place that I love most!

1. I get to see my Xisters (Alpha Xi Delta sister right here) 

If you are in a sorority you know that you are going to be dying to see all your sisters that live all over the country—especially since the second semester of Freshman year was epic with them. I cannot wait to return for part 2.

2. You get to see all of your other college friends

I made some lifelong friends in my first semester. Therefore, I can't wait to reunite with them to make even more memories while taking on my sophomore year.

3. Living with the best!!

My roommate and I from freshman year are extremely close. So, we decided this year to live on South Campus in our own little apartment. As August gets closer, we are getting more and more excited to make it feel like home and have some wild times!

4. I can't wait for my classes!

Unlike my freshmen year, this semester I am truly excited about my schedule as I get to vary off my required courses and take classes that really interest me.


Even though Syracuse is a basketball school, I absolutely cannot wait until we are back for football season. From the hype to the spirit to the tailgates, I am so amped!!

6. The freedom of being in college 

Don't get me wrong, I love being home. However, once you come back home after your freshman year in college, you feel like you are moving backward in life. For example, for months while in college I could leave my dorm no questions asked, yet at home, I feel as though I must undergo a police interrogation by my parents whenever I want to leave the house. Subsequently, I'm excited to go back so I can have a little independence back in my life.

7. This place just really makes me a happy person. 

At Syracuse University, everything just makes a little more sense to me. I'm overall just happier; therefore, life is better :)

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
