If 9 MSU Dorms Were Celebrities

If 9 MSU Dorms Were Celebrities

It's almost like we live in Hollywood... kind of.

An old MSU article recently came out of hiding and it was glorious. I strongly considered doing a part two to that article because we have a new building on campus and it needs its shining moment in the realm of The Odyssey, but as I walked around campus I thought "what better way to describe MSU than its glamorous (and not so glamorous) dorm buildings." So without further ado.... Mississippi State dorm buildings as celebrities.

1. Magnolia and Oak - The Olsen twins

These two buildings are identical twins... everything about them is the same and everyone wants to live there. Just like Mary Kate and Ashley- back in the day- they are the stars of MSU dorm life no matter what anyone says.

2. Rice Hall - Lindsey Lohan

Everyone's mom lived in this dorm. Similar to Lindsey Lohan, in the beginning, it probably lived up to the standards of Oak and Magnolia, but eventually, something just didn't click right and it went crazy. If you have ever been on the elevators in Rice, then you know that this dorm building is our girl Lindsey to a "t."

3. Moseley - Channing Tatum

I really just think this dorm was built to make Rice, Cresswell, and Hathorn look bad and it really does. I personally have never been a huge fan of Channing Tatum's acting, but I'd be lying if I didn't say he was a little too easy on the eyes.

4. Hathorn and Cresswell - Abby and Brittany Hensel

Hathorn and Cresswell look alike, smell alike, and get all the same reviews. I'm a big fan of TLC Stars, Abby, and Brittany. If you go to MSU and aren't sure who they are, give them a Google and you'll get it.

5. Hull Hall - Betty White

While this dorm building is much older than Rice, it doesn't really take away from the beauty of Mississippi State. It fits in perfectly with the historical look State tries to pull off, just like Betty White fits perfectly into every role she plays.

6. Sessums - Jon Gosselin

I am very aware that Sessums is an all girls dorm, but let's be honest the friendships people make living in "sketch"ums are the only good things anyone has to say about that building. Similar to Jon Gosselin the only thing good anyone has to say about him is his 8 kids.

7. Herbert, Critz, and McKee - Frankie Delgado

I'm not inserting a picture here because odds are you won't remember them anyway. Just like Frankie's claim to fame was being Brody Jenner's friend, these three dorms are the only kind of remembered because of what they're close to. If you live in one of these places you can always count on someone saying "wait you live where?"

8. Dogwood and Deavenport - Kylie and Kendall Jenner

No explanation need.

9. Zacharias Village - The Sharks

I am referring to the billionaires on Shark Tank. This whole group of dorm buildings is literally filled with the best of the best of MSU.

10 Shows Netflix Should Have Acquired INSTEAD of Re-newing 'Friends' For $100 Million

Could $100 Million BE anymore of an overspend?


Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

10 Quotes To Think About When The Universe Seems Like It's Against You

Finals are upon us and winter is coming, but that doesn't need to mean that you let the melancholy consume you.


We all have those days when we just don't want to get out of bed. You don't want to go to class or do homework or do your laundry, but alas, those things are our responsibilities and they don't go away because we stay in bed (yay adulting!). Here are 10 quotes to help you out of a slump.

1. "Don't listen to them, they act like they own the world."


Don't let what other people say or do affect you. People love to stunt as the world revolves around them, but it doesn't actually, regardless of what social media will have you think. Live your life the way that is right for you and don't let anyone make you feel bad about doing what is right for you.

2. “Surround yourself with people who see your value and remind you of it.”


This one's pretty self-explanatory, but the importance cannot be stressed enough. Someone once told me you are the average of the five people you spend the most time with. If that is true, make sure you are spending time around good influences, but also, and maybe most importantly, make sure those five people respect and appreciate you and everything you have to offer.

3. “When you start doubting yourself, remember everything you've faced, all the battles you've won, and all of the fears you've overcome.”

It is easy to forget to cut yourself a break. In the mindset of a constant grind we get caught up in meeting our goals so much that we sometimes forget to turn around and remember where we started. Acknowledge the work you've done to get to where you are and realize that being perfect is not an reasonable expectation for yourself.

4. “One of the best lessons you can learn in life is to master how to remain calm.”


There is always going to be drama. It doesn't go away just because high school is over. The only difference is how you let it affect you. Remember to stay above the turmoil and focus on what is really important. Nothing is more important than your peace of mind.

5. “Keep your face always toward the sunshine and the shadows will fall behind you.”

The thing about a bad mood is that it can become all-consuming very quickly. It is unbelievably easy to fall into a cycle of negative thoughts and actions if you aren't very careful. However, if you make a conscious effort every day to think positively and focus on creating a beautiful future, you can avoid falling into said rut.

6. “Day by day, what you do is who you become.”


If you don't like where you are in your life do something about it. You don't get different results by doing the same thing you've always done. Making a small change in a daily routine can be the start to creating the life you have always wanted.

7. “Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being excited about what could go right.”


Fear is debilitating. It stops progress before it can start. Also, it is temporary and useless. the quicker you take the plunge to do what you've always wanted to do the less time you give your fears to convince you that its not possible. So be like Nike and just do it!

8. “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”


You effectively learn nothing from staying within the bounds of what you have always known. When you step out of your comfort zone, you learn about the world and about yourself. One of the most important skills in life is adaptability and staying safely among those things that you already know does nothing to help advance that skill.

9. “Not all storms come to disrupt your life. Some come to clear your path.”

I'm a strong believer that everything happens for a reason. The good, the bad, the downright awful all shape you into the person you are meant to be. So try to remember that even the darkness will pass and it will leave you with everything you need to proceed into the next challenge of your life with confidence.

10. “Fighters are made, not born.”


Shoutout to Abhi G, this is his favorite quote. It's easy to look at the people around you and think "wow, they are so strong." The thing to remember is that everyone is born with that strength but only some people have the drive to persist past their circumstances and endure.

All of the things that these quotes teach remind us that despite the fact that the world may seem gloomy, there is always some silver lining. You have the opportunity to take control of your life. You get to decide whether to try or give up and the correct decision is always to try. Persistence and practice and stamina and support, these are the only things you need in order to create the life you wish to live.
