Plants Are Friends (And Sometimes Food)

Get a plant while you're in college

Plants Are Friends (And Sometimes Food)
Hannah Purtymun

Do you love it when you come home at the end of the day and there’s someone (or something) waiting and happy to see you? Do you want to be responsible for something without the hassle of it constantly asking for attention? Classes got you down and you just need to succeed in something, even if it is just keeping something other than yourself alive? Do you get a warm fuzzy feeling when you see the color green? If you answered yes to any of these questions you should probably invest in a plant! If you’re not convinced, here are some reasons why you should get a plant during your college career.

They will always be there for you.

Whether you get back to your dorm or apartment at four in the afternoon or four in the morning, your plants will always be there waiting for you. They will give you something to gree’ when you get home and they’re happy green leaves will ‘welcome’ you home.

It will give you something to take care of (other than yourself.)

Having something else to take care of (water, give sunlight etc.) and keep alive is a great way to get you up in the morning. It will also give you a sense of accomplishment when you keep a plant alive for the first time!

Plants actually keep you healthy.

For one, plants produce oxygen using the carbon dioxide that you exhale so the oxygen levels in your room will increase, which is great for your health. Plants will also help you get through your late night studying by improving your concentration and thus your productivity!

Plant are great. They'll keep you motivated, healthy and will even help you fend off that school year loneliness!

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

To The Classes That Follow
Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.
