6 Reasons Why Corgis Are the Best
Alyssa Lintz

Of course, we all see corgi memes on Facebook and other social media platforms but living with one makes life a little happier! They are always willing to please, give you many reasons to laugh, and are always up to an adventure as long as they are with their person.

1. They always want your attention.

My old dog Sophi was always in your face

They are always seeking your love and attention. Sometimes that might mean army crawling up your chest to put their nose in your face and that's completely okay.

2. They will always put a smile on your face.

insert a *boop* here

No matter how bad your day may be, there is a guaranteed smile when you have a Corgi. Of course, they may cause some frustration but all of that goes away when they look at you and give you some wholesome cuddles.

3. They may be a *minor inconvenience.*

You might be getting ready for work or in a time crunch and your pup doesn't want you to leave for the day. They want you to stay home with them so they can be with you all day! They will just plop down in the middle of the floor and expect you to move around them.

4. They give the best little "awoos."

They make the cutest sounds when they're excited! My pup doesn't do this but I've noticed other Corgis do something similar when they get excited!

They can be very vocal so be aware of that if you plan on adding one to your pack!

5. They are literal loaves of bread.

With their stocky bodies and stubby legs, they look like loaves of bread. The running joke in my family is that we have only owned "burnt Corgis" but they come in different colors based on if they're Pembroke Welsh Corgis or Cardigan Welsh Corgis. There's a slight difference between the two breeds because Cardigan Welshes have a tail and different color variations whereas Pembroke Welshes have docked tails and the "basic" Corgi colors that people are more familiar with!

6. They are great companions.

Koda (Cockapoo) and Sophi were the best of friends.

Corgis make great companions not only for humans but for other dogs. Of course, there might be Corgis that don't get along with other dogs so take that into consideration when you are looking for one!

When we lost Sophi unexpectedly in December of 2018, our dog Koda was completely lost without his best friend. About a week or so after Sophi's death, we found a puppy that was meant to be. Of course Mia, will never replace Sophi but she has filled a void that our family was feeling. Mia and Koda get along but not like how him and Sophi ever did.

Before thinking about adding a corgi to your household, please do you research the breed! They require training because they are smart and they need a lot of outdoor space since they are herding dogs with natural herding instincts. They also require a lot of grooming which I wish we knew before we got Sophi because she used to shed a ton!

They truly are great dogs and I think I will always have one in my life because of how loyal they are and they have so much personality. I know people who aren't the biggest dog people but once they met our corgis, they instantly grew to love dogs a little more than they did.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
