Hello everyone, my name's Colin Romaglia and I'm a reporter who will be contributing to the Arizona State University (ASU) Odyssey. I'm a sports journalism major and digital audiences minor at ASU's Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. I joined the Odyssey Online as a sophomore.

Due to my ever-growing love for sports, most of my coverage will surround various teams, athletes, and the impact of sports on society. Occasionally, I plan on branching out to tackle non-sports content, because as we all know, there's a lot more to life than that.

I hope to bring you all content from what my friends would call a mature, unique, and humorous perspective. Nothing brings me more joy as a writer then to make someone else think, "wow, I never really thought of it like that".

Outside of the Odyssey, I'm a student worker inside ASU's Digital Audiences Lab and I'm the Director of Sports Podcasts for Blaze Radio, ASU's student station. I do enjoy writing, but I also take a lot of pride in my skills as a broadcaster and digital marketer.

Originally, I'm from Fair Lawn, New Jersey, so needless to say getting used to Arizona has been a massive lifestyle change. My favorite sports teams are all over the map, as they include: the Pittsburgh Steelers (NFL), the New York Yankees (MLB), the Minnesota Timberwolves (NBA), and the New Jersey Devils (NHL).

I'm definitely an old soul, and if I could go back in time, the choice is hands down being sent back to the roaring 1920s. My favorite author is F. Scott Fitzgerald and some of my favorite music artists include Frank Sinatra, Michael Bublé, and Toby Keith. Just think Captain America, but you know, without all the superpowers.

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.
