An Open Letter To My Professors

A thank you for the countless hours you put into furthering my education.

An Open Letter To My Professors

To My Professors:

As the school year comes to an end this week, I cannot help but feel a mix of emotions. I feel happy to get to experience summer again, go home, relax, reunite with family and friends, and binge on luxuries that school does not contain. However, I also find myself feeling sad as I leave the school year and memories behind. There is always next year for new and improved things, but some cannot be replaced. One of these things are my professors, and allow me to explain.

When I first came to college this last year, I had hoped for nothing more than a new beginning. New culture, new possibilities, new chances, new challenges, the list goes on. Nevertheless, I found a large majority of these in my professors. Upon the first day of both fall and spring semesters, I quickly found out I was blessed with a group of adults that I could look up to, something I never had before in a classroom.

My first year experience professor told our class the greatest stories for seven weeks straight. My history professor was so engaging and passionate about the civilizations of ancient history; I never walked away from a lecture less than enthusiastic. My architecture professor was a legitimate architect; therefore, he truly knew what he was talking about and always assigned fun projects. My two writing professors knew I had a profound love for writing, so they always pushed me to do my very best throughout every paper. For as long as I can remember, math was my worst subject in middle and high school, but not anymore. My math professor was phenomenal, and made college algebra feel easy; I never score lower than a B+ on any of his exams. My nutrition professor was a registered dietician for well over 30 years, and always had the best in-class discussions. My psychology and S.S. professors lectured for what seemed to feel like forever, yet always positively pushed and encouraged us to think about the topics.

With that being said, I am able to see just how blessed I truly was this last year. If it were not for my professors, I would not have had nearly as great of a freshman year. When I was given these outstanding people to learn from, I knew I made the right decision in attending my university. Thank you to all of you. Thank you for the countless hours you put into teaching, motivating, improving, inspiring, encouraging, respecting, helping, and engaging me. I wish I could have the several of you all four years, but there are numerous future students out there that need you as much I did. I will never forget the memories and lessons I have learned, but until we possibly meet again, I wish you all nothing but the best.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
