15 People You'll Meet On Your Small Campus, Because You Couldn't Avoid Them If You Tried

1. The IM Leagues guy

Signs up for every intermural sport, recruits for his teams, and uses Facebook messenger to send 'a reminder' before every game. Also nominates himself as "coach."

2. The Drunk

Goes to all the frat parties but says, "being in a frat is too much of a commitment." You really wonder how he's still passing, how many times he can be found in a bush the morning after, or how many times he'll sneak a flask into a lecture.

3. Miss Optimistic

The girl that's always excited to see everyone. You're honestly tired after talking to her because you feel like you should match her energy level but really it was more energy than you had for the whole day.

4. The Popular

You thought you could ditch the click in high school but guess again. She manages to have more Instagram followers than you have Facebook friends, goes to home games just to look cute for themed nights, and all the girls on campus follow her trends.

5. The Jock that doesn't play sports

The guy every girl wants to ask to Sadie Hawkins and will never get the nerve to. Then they're blown away by who actually asks him.

6. The guy you have to wake up for class

He's probably your best friend and his most frequent text to you is, "What'd we do in class today?"

7. The walking textbook

You wonder how many pens and highlighters a person can own. You also wish you had their detailed hourly planner.

8. The gym junkie

Majoring in Physical education. You probably walk by the same water fountain that's in his Tinder profile pic: a post work out mirror selfie from your campus gym.

9. The "on my way" friend

Has an exam the next day but says they'll be at your place in ten.

10. The frat guy(s)

In high school, he wore the same Nike shorts everyday but now he wears turquois-colored khaki shorts, boat shoes, and greek letters like it's a religion.

11. The Pre-yoga mom

Promotes essential oils, goes to hot yoga, and majors in Family Studies.

12. The artist

Probably outside on campus with a view and watercolors. You figured out what their name is by reading a flyer on your lunch table and saw their picture in the "Featured Artist of the Month" column.

13. The Basic

Just there to get through their classes, loves to hang out with friends or chill by themselves. Trends really aren't their thing.

14. The nice girl

She pretty, genuine, has all guy friends, and you'll never hear anything bad thing about her.

15. The Netflixer

Every college student ever because what college kid doesn't binge watch Netflix?

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.
