6 Things Just About Any USC Student Would Do If They Won The Lottery

With 1.5 billion dollars there's no such thing as a being a "broke college kid" anymore.


Recently, a jackpot-winning lottery ticket of 1.5 billion dollars was sold in South Carolina. With all of the discussion about the lottery, many people have been thinking about what they would do if they won. While anyone above 18 has the opportunity to win the jackpot, college kids may spend their winnings differently.

Most would think that students would be reasonable with their winnings but in reality, there are bound to be some semi-irresponsible purchases made.

Whether you would be responsible with your life changing earnings or not, here are six things a Carolina student would do if they won the lottery.

1. Pay off student loans.


College tuition is one of the main reasons people are in debt. You can use your earnings to pay off the rest of your schooling and the student loans that you've already taken out.

2. Buy season passes to the frat lots.


You will no longer have to get on the dreaded frat lot website and fight to buy a wristband for every single home game. With a season pass, you can bring a plus one and even get in a shorter line so you can tailgate as long as your heart desires.

3. Save it!


Saving huge amounts of money in the bank will result in large amounts of interest. If you save some of your money, you'll eventually accumulate even more money, so it's a win-win situation.

4. Buy everyone drinks at a 5-points bar.

Going out to bars will never be the same after winning the lottery. You can offer to buy drinks for everyone, which will gain you more popularity than any girl/guy on an elevated surface.

5. Buy a house and car!


After college, a house and car are some of the biggest purchases you will make. Having the ability to pay for these in full is a huge benefit. You could also help your parents out with their house and car payments, too.

6. Buy a reserved parking spot!


After winning this amount of money, I'm sure you can get with parking services and find a way to get a reserved parking spot. This is a USC student's dream, no more parking tickets, getting towed, or spending hours to find a spot at a meter/garage.

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.

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.
