6 Podcasts Every College Girl Needs To Listen To As She Treks Across Campus To Class In The Morning

It's back to school season and whether you're a new freshie or a senioritis senior, we all could use a little bit of motivation before heading back to the real world.

The podcast trend is still going strong and we know your first class is probably a good fifteen-minute walk from your dorm, so take that time to plug into your favorite podcast.

Need a place to start? That's what this article is for! These are the six podcasts you NEED to check out next semester.

1. Gals on the Go

"You'll find a mix of entertainment from tips on being productive to stories of all of their travel adventures while being full-time students... you will also hear audience questions answered weekly on topics such as school, traveling, being an influencer, college life, being productive, and oh so much more."

College can feel kind of lonely, but luckily with podcasts like Girls on the Go, it can help you feel a little less... well, alone. With titles such as, "Things We Wish We Knew Before Going To College" and "How to be Independent: Having "Me Time" and "Conquering FOMO", you'll find that relatable girl talk advice when you need it.

"Feelings, finance, and the f*cking system... every week, Gaby brings a queer, feminist, unabashedly radical point of view to conversations with journalists, politicians, activists, and fellow deadbeats."

Turns out, it's not easy being an adult. Gaby helps makes the financial and political world seem a little less intimidating. Titles include, "Living on $2 A Day" and "Student Loan Advice." Two things that are the realest of real things to deal with when you're a college student. Yuck.

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.

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.

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.
