We can dream can't we?

If Quinnipiac Had A Football Team

Quinnipiac University has a plethora of Division I athletic teams that constantly receive praise. The teams range from the women's field hockey team to the men's ice hockey team. All are well-known, and all attract the attention of the students at Quinnipiac. However, what would Quinnipiac University be like if it had a football team?

Fall semester begins, and if the students weren't already excited to return to campus, they for sure are excited for football season. Students begin decorating their dorms with both hockey and football posters and schedules. There is an extra sense of school spirit that flows through the air in the beginning of the year.

Bobcat Net continuously crashes because too many students log on to download their Friday night football tickets.

Naturally, Yale remains Quinnipiac's rival, even on the football field.

The stadium was built on another one of Quinnipiac's secret lots of land that no one knew Quinnipiac even owned. Unfortunately, the stadium is not in walking distance, so the shuttle buses are called in to help transport the raging crowd.

On the shuttle bus, students decide to pre-tailgate. The enthusiastic passengers begin to chant all different kinds of Bobcat songs so everyone driving near the shuttle can hear them on the way to the game.

Once at the stadium, the students file out of the shuttle buses and begin to fill the student section seating. Because the stadium is a lot larger than the ice rink, more of the Quinnipiac students go to the football games. The student section is much larger and can hold all of the student body. During the game, the fans go crazy. Screaming, chanting and encouraging our team to take home the victory.

When the Bobcats win, Quinnipiac does only what Quinnipiac does best: celebrate.

The football team has a row of houses right outside of the football stadium so that they won't disturb any residents in Hamden. After a victory, the team hosts victory parties where the entire student body is invited to celebrate. The parties never get too out of hand because Quinnipiac students know how to act properly and control themselves.

When playoffs are finally over, and Quinnipiac wins their division, there is a champions parade that goes along Whitney Ave. The parade ends on the quad, where the team gives a speech about how much they love the support of the students and school.

Just when campus begins to calm down after football season, hockey season begins.

Having a football team on campus ensures Quinnipiac sports spirit and school spirit lives on year round.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
