Mayfest At Syracuse Is The Best Day Of The Year

With the end of the semester and finals season approaching, I am absolutely drowning in work. It sucks because the weather is FINALLY starting to get nice, but I'm trapped in classrooms and libraries all day. I think most students are at the point where we are just ready for summer and for the semester to be over.

However, there is one thing keeping me going and motivating me to make it to the end: Mayfest. Mayfest (and Block Party) day is my favorite of the whole year, and here's why:

1. Free entry!

Yep, you can get into this all-day "festival" for free! The event is filled with live music, bouncy obstacle courses, and lots of other fun things to do. You just need your student ID and you're all set.

2. Complimentary Beer

For those who are of age, you can get a wristband for 2-3 free beers, depending on the time you arrive!

3. Free Food!

Yes-- more free stuff! There is always a large variety of options at Mayfest to satisfy your drunk (or sober) taste buds. The corn dogs and hamburgers always hit the spot when you need a midday pick-me-up.

4. It’s an all-day party!

Mayfest starts at 11 a.m., but the party starts even before that. Most students are up and drinking beginning as early as 9 a.m. There is a very brief intermission after Mayfest and then the party continues at the Dome for Block Party! Does anything sound better?

5. Block Party

After a great day at Mayfest with your friends, Block Party is an even better way to end the night. Although this part of the event is not free, it's definitely worth it. University Union always brings major artists that put on a great show. Some of the past headliners include Gucci Mane, Travis Scott, and the Chainsmokers.

Are you as excited for Mayfest as I am? Who do you think will play Block Party this year? I can't wait to find out.

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.
