9 Things Your Professor Probably Said To You On The First Day Of Classes

We've all heard it. Hopefully, you've endured your first day and survived the boring introductions to your classes.

1. "Attendance is mandatory"

Ugh we get it. We pay for class, but show up for class (even though I don't want to).

2. "I don't have to read the syllabus to you"

They say it... but they will continue to read too much of it.

3. "The textbook isn't that expensive"

Listen buddy. I'm only fake rich. I've got that student loan, not a million dollars.

4. "As long as you do the work, you'll pass the class"

But what if you don't wanna do the work?

5. "Not a lot of people pass this class, so you should get a tutor now."

If you hear this, it's a red flag. Run. Find a different professor who is actually going to to do their job and TEACH you.

6. "I realize it's after lunch, but you have to wake up."

You professor will say this to you, even though they're yawning.

7. A very bad mispronunciation of your name.

You just smile, laugh it off, and correct them.

8. "The course schedule is in the syllabus"

Even though you know they won't follow it.

9. "We're gonna have fun this semester"

Yet the only one with the doctorate is saying it.

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline. Most of my high school summers were spent sitting on the Wall at Hampton Beach, getting sunburnt and eating Acai bowls from The Secret Spot. The Wall was the place to be both during the day and at night. We begin our days there with a KB's bagel and coffee, and end them with pizza and ice cream. It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
