11 Signs You Know It's Spring At Villanova

There's nothing quite like spring on a college campus.

11 Signs You Know It's Spring At Villanova

You definitely know when it's spring time in college. Here are some signs that I see around Villanova that let me know it's officially spring.

Everyone is outside

Whether its to do work, eat, or just to hangout, you know it's spring once you start to see everyone all around outside on campus.

You almost always hear music playing by the Oreo or in the Quad

I feel like I can't walk anywhere during the day without hearing music blast from somewhere around campus.

Girls start wearing dresses 

And skirts. You know it's getting nice when girls start bringing out the sun dresses.

And boys start wearing shorts

Some boys bring out the shorts a little too early, but you know it's spring time when you see boys wearing their pastel colored or patterned shorts.

The flip flops and sandals are out

It is officially spring weather once wearing flip flops and sandals becomes acceptable again.

Everyone is collectively ready for the semester to be over

You know it's spring when everyone is struggling to make it through the rest of the semester. You're in the final stretch but you are definitely ready to be done with classes.

It's formal season

I don't know how it is at other schools, but formals are a pretty big deal at Villanova. Everyone always looks forward to getting dressed up and going out with friends, especially now that you don't have to worry about freezing while walking back to the dorms after formal.

And darty season

I don't know about everyone else, but I know it's spring when every other picture I see on Instagram is from a darty.

Hammocks are everywhere

I feel like I'm missing out on the hammock trend. When it's spring I can spot someone with their hammock in a tree almost anywhere on campus.

The dorms get unbearably hot

Once it starts to get warm out the rooms always get hot and stuffy too. We have to keep the windows open so that the room will stay a decent temperature.

The flowers and trees start blooming

So many flowers suddenly appear all around and campus looks so beautiful.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

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.
