There is nothing that can compare to high school. People always said to enjoy those years and the people you spend them with because college is something entirely different.

Back then, you probably didn't think so.

But now, college-bound and away from that life, you start to miss those days you were so quick to wish away.

1. Going to school with your home friends every day

There was nothing better than having class with all of your friends. The talking never stopped and the team work on assignments was plenty.

2. Knowing everyone you see in the halls

Yeah, I see you, Jimmy from third grade who gave me a Valentine's note. Don't you worry, I will never forget that. You're the realest.

3. Having teachers who knew your siblings

Depending on how your older sibling(s) were in class, this could either be a good thing or a bad thing. Hopefully, the teacher loved your sibling, which would mean they would love you and would give you an easy A.

4. Spirit Week

Undeniably the best week of school.

5. Driving to school

This is something you definitely took advantage of when you still had it. Now you have to hike five miles just to sit in one class.

6. Friday night football games

Games were fun because you actually knew people from the other school, and you wanted to see them get crushed by your team so bad. Now, you go to a game and don't know a single person on the other team, which makes it a little less interesting.

7. Gym class AKA gossip hour

If you thought I was walking a mile without hearing about who got horrible highlights or how Kyle broke up with Kaitlyn, then you clearly don't know high school girls.

8. Prom

Dress shopping with your best friends and taking pictures that will be with you forever are the moments that everyone wishes they can turn back to.

9. Being able to go home every day

Food. Mom. My own bed. No roommate. What more could you ask for?

1. "Can you come to the bathroom with me?"

2. "Is my hair a mess?"

3. "Omg, it's Chad from sigma Apple pi."

4. "I'm literally sweating."

5. "Omg, our song is on!"

6. "Can we get pizza after this?"

7. "Help me get this creep away."

8. "Do I look bad?"

9. "Is Chad talking to another girl!?"

10. "I will fight this girl if she pushes me again."

11. "Can you come with me to get another drink? "(Clearly, we can't do anything alone)

12. "Let's take a Snap"

13. *finds random girl in the bathroom* "Omg, you're like so pretty!"

Wait, Judy Genshaft Wasn't the Only USF President?

A glance at the five preceding presidents to grace the University of South Florida prior to Judy Genshaft.

With the buzzing news of Judy Genshaft's upcoming retirement, I decided to read more on her career and her success. She has done so much to propel the University of South Florida forward, achieving all of her set goals in the process. But in one of the many articles I saw reporting on Genshaft's retirement, there was a statement made by Betty Castor in reaction to the news. Who's Betty Castor you may ask? Well Betty Castor is USF's fifth and most recent president preceding Judy Genshaft. Meaning yes, Judy Genshaft is USF's sixth president.

Here's an introduction to ALL six USF Presidents:

1. John S. Allen, 1957-1970

Previously an astronomer, professor, and the Executive Vice President at the University of Florida, John S. Allen was appointed as the first president in USF history July 27, 1957. When John S. Allen arrived in Tampa, he had to literally craft the University of South Florida from the ground up. His opposition to major college sports fueled his desire to make USF the best academically. During his tenure, USF was considered to be the "Harvard of the South." Pretty cool to consider. After his retirement, our accomplished founder was honored with the "John and Grace Allen Center", named after himself and his wife.

2. Cecil Mackey, 1971-1976

Once the director of the Office of Policy Development for the Federal Aviation Agency, and the assistant Secretary for policy Development for the U.S. Department of Transportation, Maurice Cecil Mackey, Jr. joined USF's administration February of 1971. During his presidency, Mackey opened USF Sarasota and dispersed the College of Liberal Arts into four new colleges. After leaving the University of South Florida, he went on to be the President of Michigan State University, and Texas Tech University.

3. John Lott Brown, 1978-1988

After a period with two interim presidents in place at the University of South Florida, John Lott Brown was finally inaugurated April 15, 1978. Brown also had a history in aviation, and he had conducted research related to early space flight. He utilized his time as president to establish the Moffit Cancer Center, USF Psychiatry Center, and the USF College of public health.

4. Francis Borkowski, 1988-1993.

During his career, Francis Borkowski was an administer at five different Universities. But on February 5th, 1988, he took over as president for the University of South Florida. With his short tenure at USF, Borkowski hoped to raise the University's status in both academics and athletics. In 1991, one of his goals was achieved with the foundation of the College of Arts and Sciences.

5. Betty Castor, 1994-1999

Betty Castor's time at USF was historical because she was the first female president the school had ever seen. When she became a part of the administration team USF already had four campuses, a medical school, and over 40,000 students. She walked into a well established institution and still managed to fulfill an advantageous agenda. Castor expanded the Honors Program, earned recognition for the University's Research achievements, and took USF abroad to countries such as China and Africa. Betty Castor Hall was famously named after her, and her legacy continues to show relevance at the University.

6. Judy Genshaft, 2000-2019 (Pending)

Judy Genshaft has the longest tenure in the University's history, and she was recently ranked as the 11th highest paid university president in the United States. We know and love her for her many accomplishments, as of recent USF's emergence as a preeminent university, but she has also been involved in a few controversies. Even so, she has tremendously transformed the University of South Florida and will be retiring at the peak of her administrative career.
