For years students have been begging Michigan State University's CATA busses to allow students to ride for free, claiming that the $50 bus pass EACH semester is a little bit ridiculous considering the amount that students already pay just to attend the school. Even MSU's biggest rival in all aspects, University of Michigan, allows their students to ride their public transportation for free. So why couldn't the Spartans as well?

On July 18, 2018, MSU announced that for the first time, students would be allowed to ride the CATA buses that run on campus for free. Although there is some concern about how the already over-populated busses will handle more riders, one thing's for sure: Spartans are looking forward to spending their bus fare elsewhere.

1. Starbucks

AND I'm treating myself to a Venti, too.

10 Things Someone Who Grew Up In A Private School Knows

The 10 things that every private school-goer knows all too well.

1. Uniforms

Plaid. The one thing that every private school-goer knows all too well. It was made into jumpers, skirts, shorts, scouts, hair ties, basically anything you could imagine, the school plaid was made into. You had many different options on what to wear on a normal day, but you always dreaded dress uniform day because of skirts and ballet flats. But it made waking up late for school a whole lot easier.

2. New people were a big deal

New people weren't a big thing. Maybe one or two a year to a grade, but after freshman year no one new really showed up, making the new kid a big deal.

3. You've been to school with most of your class since Kindergarten


Most of your graduating class has been together since Kindergarten, maybe even preschool, if your school has it. They've become part of your family, and you can honestly say you've grown up with your best friends.

4. You've had the same teachers over and over

Having the same teacher two or three years in a row isn't a real surprise. They know what you are capable of and push you to do your best.

5. Everyone knows everybody. Especially everyone's business.

Your graduating class doesn't exceed 150. You know everyone in your grade and most likely everyone in the high school. Because of this, gossip spreads like wildfire. So everyone knows what's going on 10 minutes after it happens.

6. Your hair color was a big deal

If it's not a natural hair color, then forget about it. No dyeing your hair hot pink or blue or you could expect a phone call to your parents saying you have to get rid of it ASAP.

7. Your school isn't like "Gossip Girl"

There is no eating off campus for lunch or casually using your cell phone in class. Teachers are more strict and you can't skip class or just walk right off of campus.

8. Sports are a big deal

Your school is the best of the best at most sports. The teams normally go to the state championships. The rest of the school that doesn't play sports attends the games to cheer on the teams.

9. Boys had to be clean-shaven, and hair had to be cut

If you came to school and your hair was not cut or your beard was not shaved, you were written up and made to go in the bathroom and shave or have the head of discipline cut your hair. Basically, if you know you're getting written up for hair, it's best just to check out and go get a hair cut.

10. Free dress days were like a fashion show

Wearing a school uniform every day can really drive you mad. That free dress day once a month is what you lived for. It was basically a fashion show for everyone, except for those upperclassmen who were over everything and just wore sweat pants.

I know this is pretty popular and a lot of these are pretty common, but there's nothing wrong with revisiting favorite scenes over and over again. I mean, if you watch the reruns and the episodes on Netflix you're doing it anyway, so here's the condensed version in no particular order. :)

1. Literally anytime Joey says "How you doin'?"

Giphy

Am I right ladies? 😉

2. Basically anytime Janice shows up unannounced

Giphy

I can't help but smile every time she shows up. And if you can't hear these words, something is wrong with you.

3. The Bing family reunion at Chandler and Monica's engagement party


This is honestly one of my favorite scenes. 😂

4. 'Baby Got Back'

Giphy

I'm not gonna lie, Rachel isn't my favorite character. She's so whiny and it annoyed me through the first half of the series. When she started having more of a backbone and stopped having the high pitched tone, I could tolerate her more. Rachel post-Emma's-birth is probably my favorite and this is by far my favorite scene. Of course she's alongside Ross' booty shaking, which helps.

5. When Phoebe gets married 

Giphy

Don't get me wrong, Phoebe is one of my favorite characters and she cracks me up all the time. But when she met Mike and her big day finally came, I felt so much joy and I cried during the "ceremony". I'm probably not the only one but when people reference Phoebe, it's usually not about her wedding.

6. The turkey head and the "I love you" slip

Giphy

I absolutely love Chandler and Monica together like everyone else. Aside from the comedic relief from their fight and Chandler's "I love you" slip, Joey's reaction afterwards had me laughing so hard that I couldn't breathe and was crying.

7. PIVOT

Giphy

I absolutely love Chandler with basically everything, but this.. as you can probably guess... *hysterical laughter*

8. 'Ebony and Ivory'

Giphy

​Aside from this tanning fail, there's the leather pants fiasco and the Unagi ridiculousness.. But this outweighs them all because I always make fun of girls that have terrible fake tans. Oh well🤷

9. The leather pants

I brought up the pants, so here's the scene 😁

10. And finally, when Monica burns everyone

100%. I laugh every. single. time. It will always be one of my favorites :)

Hope you smiled!
