Mayfest 2019: A Review

The best day of the year came and went.

Mayfest 2019: A Review
@thegr8khalid on Instagram

The gloomy weather and scattered drizzle didn't stop Syracuse University students from having a blast this weekend at Mayfest, which took place Friday, April 26th, 2019. Beginning as early as 10 a.m., music could be heard across campus as everyone began pregaming for the day.

For me, it was a day full of corn dogs and cheeseburgers as per usual. The day ended in the Dome as Khalid took the stage for my favorite Block Party yet. Overall, I had a great time. So, what did everyone else have to say about it? I asked some of my fellow students to find out.

"Mayfest was quite chaotic per usual, but I always love bumping into people I know! The corn dogs and cheeseburgers also never disappoint. After listening to Khalid's new album, I knew I had to see him at Block Party. It's definitely annoying when you have to wait 3 hours to see him perform for an hour, but I had so much fun singing along to all of his new songs and top hits!"

--Ariel Hylton

"My favorite part of the day was all the free food. That's honestly the main reason I came. My least favorite was how you can't buy alcohol at Block Party. They should sell alcohol."

-- Jordan Nuber

"Tailgates were my favorite part. It's nice to be able to wander around Mayfest and see people you haven't seen in a hot sec. Khalid was also really, really good. I went to all three Block Parties and had floor tickets each time, but I liked Khalid's set the best and I knew most of his songs. As for cons, I thought Mayfest was just alright. I thought it was really gloomy, which kind of killed the mood. Also, acts took so long to go on stage and once Whethan went on stage everyone was shoving and pushing. Block Party intermission was too long too."

--Megan Hu

"I wasn't expecting it to be that good of a concert, and it was a good concert."

--Clay Rott

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
