Rule number one, you have to get a picture with Sammy.

16 Things You Know Are True if You Go To Salisbury University.
Salisbury University

We gulls know that Salisbury University has some very iconic things around its campus. From the perpetual downpour of rain to the late night walks to Cookout and to the school wide phenomenon that is Spring Olympics, it's quite the mash up of different events and traditions. But we wouldn't have it any other way, and I know that we all are longing for summer to end so we can get back to our home away from home.

1. If you're in-state, you see someone you know from high school every day.

2. Cookout at 2 a.m. on the weekends is the busiest place you'll ever witness.

You're gonna have to wait about an hour for that milkshake.

3. Always have an umbrella.

It feels like all of the rain in the world is just sent directly to SU.

4. Nanticoke is the hotel of dorm rooms.

And Severn is the worst.

5. Are you even a Salisbury student if you don't have a picture with Sammy?

Go Gulls!

6. The tunnel and Red Square floods every time it rains.

I'm bringing a pool floaty next year to see if I can float the entire tunnel.

7. Having a biker or a skateboarder fly past you in the tunnel is basically guaranteed to give you a heart attack.

I saw a unicyclist once.

8. You have SafeRide's number saved to your phone.

And you have to fight a crowd of drunk people to get your van.

9. You have about a four percent chance of booking a study room in the library.

And if you did book one, you have to kick people out of it to use it at your designated time.

10. There's a dude that walks around campus just singing and serenading people.

I sang along to Santeria with him in Cookout once.

11. Don't know where the party is? Just ask if it's New Zoo or Old Zoo.

12. The Spring Olympics is huge and it's basically a field day for adults.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F07%2F30%2F6363703357918699102145992112_olympics.webp&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=109&h=561b262fc6e4cb832e2193c61c902ece4b8bbd3676f7497312d59153456b33d2&size=980x&c=1980570778 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F07%252F30%252F6363703357918699102145992112_olympics.webp%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D109%26h%3D561b262fc6e4cb832e2193c61c902ece4b8bbd3676f7497312d59153456b33d2%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1980570778%22%7D" expand=1 original_size="1x1"]

I sadly lost the pie eating contest.

13. Hungry Minds always has at least a thirty minute wait, usually caused by a flood of girls ordering paninis.

I just want my damn burger.

14. The dining hall has the best chocolate milk and soft serve ice cream you'll ever have.

The freshman fifteen is purely from those.

15. Every event for SGA, Greek life, or club is held in Red Square.

And they will call you out on the microphone to get you to participate but it's usually where you get free tshirts and snacks.

16. You proudly call it home and miss it dearly when you're not there.

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.
