What I Really Am Majoring In

A brief explanation of what I should be majoring in.

What I Really Am Majoring In

I may be a Communication Studies major, but in reality, there are a lot of other things I seem to be learning a LOT about, too.

1. Crafting

Who needs to study, when you could be making Christmas Ornaments, painting a canvas, redecorating your room (which you’ve probably already done at least 5 times before), and probably doing other random crafty things that you find on Pinterest, along with making 9 tutus for Ludy Bowl, in one night. I have done more crafting since coming to college than I have in my entire life, and believe when I say crafting is my cardio.

2. Shopping: How to Target/ Dollar Tree

Going to a small school where everyone knows everyone and everyone is involved in everything, it is always great to be able to leave campus and take time for yourself. I mostly find myself at Target or Dollar Tree, because who doesn’t love all the cute ideas one can get from Target and Dollar Tree crafts!

Side Note: Target currently has little Christmas Trees for $3.

3. Community Service/ Volunteering

throughout our Columbia College years, we take Liberal Arts classes, and in then, we go out into the community and complete community service projects. My first-year, we went to The Palmetto Trail and raked, and this year, I go to Pawmetto Lifeline to work with animals and help with any needs they may have.

4. Koalas

There is nothing like going into a store that sells a koala because then you have to get it,because the Koalas seem to not be the easiest things to find.

5. Acting like we have it all together.

Too often we are expected to be completely presentable and act like we have our life completely put together when in reality we do not.

6. Making 5 dollars last you all week with microwave meals.

We all know the dining hall does not always fit in with our schedule so it is nothing out of the ordinary to go get dollar meals from Wal-Mart to make the most of the 5 dollars that you have.

7. Dry shampooing

Who needs to wash their hair when you have things like dry shampoo to get you through the day, because why spend less time with friends to wash your hair. That is what Sunday mornings are for.

8. Finding clothes in others closets.

It has become a great idea to find friends who can fit in the same size clothes that you do so when all of your options are either not working or dirty, you just go to their closet.

9. Navigation

We are so used to having a small campus that once we get out of our block, we sometimes get confused and end up in random places that we have never been before.

10. Knowing what is open at midnight and who delivers

Attending a small school means not being able to get food our walk to food places 24/7. So, if you stay up late you have to know who deliver, their delivery costs, and how long it will take to get it.

11. The Four Cs

Everywhere on campus, you are confronted with the 4 Cs, courage, commitment, confidence, and competence. These 4 Cs help us show leadership in all aspects of life.

12. Making Friends

These past three years, I have made so many new friends. These friends will forever be in my heart because of all the fun and exciting things we have done while procrastinating.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
