Mother Nature Only Gave Us 3 Weeks Of Spring, So Don't Waste It

For those of you in the Midwest and maybe other places where there was snow a week ago and it’s 70 degrees outside today, I think we can safely say that spring has finally sprung. We should have been able to say this a month ago, but we apparently can’t rely on the seasons anymore. The fact of the matter is that there’s only a few more weeks of school left before finals and summer time! If you live in an area that drew the short end of the stick when it came to the gross un-springlike weather we’ve been having, it is imperative that you take advantage of these three free ways to enjoy the beautiful weather towards the end of the school year.

1. Study in a new spot

Finals week is quickly approaching and if you study as much as you probably should, you know how easy it is to become drained and unmotivated. A change of scenery will do wonders for you. Make a list of all the places to study on campus, even in buildings you’ve never stepped foot in, and use that as your study spot checklist. You can even study outside! The possibilities are endless.

2. Walk to class more.

There has been some wacky weather this spring. It was snowing about a week ago and now it’s finally feeling more like spring should. These next few weeks are crunch time, so give your mind, body, and soul a little TLC and walk to places instead of taking the bus. You’ll feel so much more refreshed and have time to let your brain relax before sitting down in class or a library to study for the next few hours.

3. Soak up some sun and enjoy the spring breeze.

Have a hammock? Go use it. Want to lay in the grass between classes? Do it. It’s spring time and you’re a college student, so enjoy the weather while you can before you start working this summer.

These 3 activities are simple and maybe obvious, but it is so easy to get caught up in the craziness of the end of the semester. Whatever your workload may be, give your mind and body a deserved break from studying and enjoy the outdoors as much as you can. You won’t regret it.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
