11 Things Every SUNY Delhi Student Will Miss This Summer

11 Things Every SUNY Delhi Student Will Miss This Summer

Summer's here but Delhi will always be your home


The semester has now ended and everyone is back home enjoying their summers. While most people couldn't be more excited that it's summertime, college students everywhere will be missing their college and the lifestyle they're so used to for three long months. Like all schools, SUNY Delhi is a school most people can't wait to leave by the end of the second semester. Although this is true, as the days of summer go by, everyone slowly starts to miss it. Here are 11 things every SUNY Delhi student will miss while they are home for the summer.

1. Partying

It’s hard to go from May to the end of August without being able to party with the college friends you're so used to going out with. They have experienced those gross frat houses with you, tried to get into the bar with you and were always down for late night gas station trips with you.

2. No Parents

Eventually we get tired of people telling us what to do and where to be. We wanted to come home so bad but we all need our freedom. At college, we can eat whenever we want, hang out whenever and wherever with whoever we want, we can take naps whenever, get drunk whenever we want and be unproductive without being judged.

3. The River

The beach or that lake by your house is great, but nothing compares to going to the river with some towels, a football or frisbee, a speaker, your friends and a cooler of beer.

4. Finding the Buddha

Nothing beats searching for hours up a mountain for a little statue of a Buddha, but afterwards the view of the journey is not so bad after all.

5.The Village&Cuginos

Nothing will compare to the food from your home town, but sometimes you'll miss getting pizza with your buddies on the weekends instead of eating campus food.

6.Blue Cafe

That perfect place you won't have this summer to go to when you want to escape and drink some coffee/tea and relax with some breakfast on a Sunday morning.

7. New Cstore Hours

Over the summer you will miss being able to walk 2 minutes to the Cstore at 12 a.m. to go grab late night snack or munchies because the closest store might not be open that late.

8. Free Anything

Free isn't a word you hear a lot over the summer. Everything you want to do and all the food you want to eat you have to actually pay for. There are no more free giveaways and events to attend.

9. UDE Fest

Everyone goes to fairs and carnivals over the summer, but while you're there with your home friends, you think of UDE fest and all the fun you have with your college friends.

10. Going to Mac Hungover

You'll never have those moments at home where you roll yourself out of bed after a long night of drinking and make your way to Mac for some shitty breakfast. Everyone there is okay with the way you look because they're in the same boat as you.

11. 105

105, the game no one outside of Delhi really understands. You can try and bring it to your hometown but it will never be the same or taken that seriously.

12. Everything Being Walking Distance

Now that you're home, you have to get in the car to go somewhere. No more being able to walk less than 5 minutes for food, to see your friends, or the bar and parties on weekends. It makes us very grateful to be on a campus so small.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

I Spoke To A California ER Doctor About COVID-19, And Y'all, Our Healthcare Workers Know What's Up

In light of what's going on in the world, it's time to get some front-line perspective.

It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.

While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary.
