10 Things I Will Actually Miss About Starkville

Starkville is a small town, but with a lot of personality.

10 Things I Will Actually Miss About Starkville
Angela Provenzano

Even though sometimes it feels like there's nothing to do in Starkville, there are definitely things that I will miss about it. Here are some things that make Starkville, well Starkville.

1. Everything I need is within a 10 minute drive.


The feeling of only having to get gas every 3 weeks is like no other.

2. The Refuge is the best escape from life

The 20 minute drive down Mississippi backroads is just as freeing as the view at the refugee. It really makes the best sunday afternoon.

3. There's very few commercial stores, so I have no where to spend all my money


Thanks for putting me on a shopping budget Starkville. I have to drive to TJ Maxx in Columbus to Splurge

4. All the sporting events

Before transferring here, I could really care less about sports. But MSU has made me really appreciate the social aspects of sports (and maybe the actual sport part of it). Football, basketball, and baseball games always provide fun ways to get together with others and ring some cowbells or dress like a banana.

5. It will never disappoint my late night sweets craving


From Bops, to Cookout, Dairy Queen, Local Culture, insomnia, Sonic, and Churn and Spoon I have endless options when I want a guilty pleasure. Although my body doesn't appreciate it, my stress levels do.

6. The Drill Field

I always love throwing frisbee with friends on the drill field on a nice day or just running into people I know walking to classes. Also, the grass is perfectly green and the building around are very aesthetic.

7. The Cotton District

Jumping around the cotton district is always a fun night out. The buildings are beautiful and the vibe is very--well--college.

8. Bulldog Bash


The free music is amazing, but being squished within thousands of people and jumping up to see is all part of the experience.

9. The Rose Garden

The perfect place for photoshoots, proposal, or afternoon chats. This local treasure has always been a go-to.

10. The people

As much as I will miss Starkville, I will miss the people here so much more. I have been welcomed her with open arms (even as a Northerner) and made lifetime friendships here.

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.

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.
