5 Things Every Orientation leader Can Relate To Once Orientation Season is Over

1. Your body just naturally wakes up at 5am since you did it for a month(s) straight

Depending on how much you get ready and how early orientation starts, chances are you set an alarm for anywhere between 3:45am (me) and 6:00am. Doing this repeatedly for weeks at a time can definitely cause you to form a habit. So even though orientations are over and you can finally sleep in, your body keeps waking you up....and you almost get ready and put your polo on.

2. You AUTOMATICALLY start dancing when you hear a song from the summer

It can be the songs you always dance to, songs from the inside jokes between you and your OL friends, or even just the songs that were on the daily playlist during orientation, if you hear one-you dance. No questions asked.

3. You're not entirely sure how to function without your orientation leader besties by your side 24/7

You get to live with, work with, and hang out with an amazing group of people for weeks at a time. And then reality sets in and you don't have them down the hall from you any more. It can be hard. And now you're just counting down the days until school starts again.

4. You're still trying to break the habit of raising your eyebrows and your voice when someone asks you a question

It's the "Orientation Leader Face" or the "Orientation Leader Voice" and some people can break the habit rather quickly...some of us though (me), are not so lucky.

5. You never thought you'd miss campus...but then you're home and all you want to do is go back

You get to live on a college campus that is so beautiful and you absolutely adore..And then you have to go back home to a very subpar scenery.

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.

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.
