Michael Phelps (And His Face) Describe Your First Semester At Dayton

UD's community just got a little bit bigger.


Michael Phelps, currently at the ripe old age of 31, is well past his college days. As one of the relatively older Olympians in Rio, it’d be kind of strange to put him back in that college environment with a bunch of young adults. But that doesn’t mean he can’t give great advice and, most importantly, relevant facial expressions on the matter! Whether you’re a future or current UD student or just want to reminisce on the past, Phelps would be more than happy to help you. Here is how he would describe your first semester at UD, all in hilariously glorious pictures of his “Phelps Face."

1. When you arrive at the happiest place on earth as a little baby freshman.

2. Literally a baby.

3. When you meet your roommates.

4. Whenever you meet someone new, and you try to make a good first impression.

5. How you actually feel.

6. When you're all moved in and on your own - what?!

7. When the professor starts lecturing on syllabus day.

8. When Friday rolls around, and that means you've survived the first week.

9. When you finally get to visit Brown Street.

10. When you become best friends with Nancy from Marycrest.

11. When you spot a beautiful UD sunset.

12. When you've finally settled into the groove of this college thing. (You've got this.)

13. But then, suddenly, you realize that two months have already gone by.

14. And that means midterms are soon.

15. Yay! When your midterms were relatively easy, and you're halfway through your first semester! Go you!

16. When, before you know it, you have to leave your friends for Thanksgiving break. Only to know that, when you come back...

17. Finals.

18. Time to get to work. Just gotta dive right in!

19. When you're doing good but - oh no - your professor just said the final is cumulative!!!

20. When you reach maximum stress levels and can barely contain the crazy anymore.

21. Barely.

22. When you're taking the test, after studying for ten hours straight only to give up in a frantic decision to wing it.

23. After your test.

24. When your grade is finally released - and it's an A!

25. You survived four whole months at college. This calls for a celebration!

26. It's time to kick back, relax on a nice porch, and enjoy the UD community. Congratulations, you've made it this far! Up next: the rest of your four years here at the University of Dayton!

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
