Small University Living

Everyone wants to know why I attend such a small university instead of say Carolina. I've always thought that smaller universities were just better due to the sheer homey-ness of them. I didn't know for a long time of anything other than UNC, Duke, and State due to the sheer size of them, both on a and off campus. When I found smaller universities and actually toured some of them in my later years of high school I knew that this was the type of campus environment I wanted. Check out below a couple of perks of attending a smaller university.

1. You always see someone you know

Whether your headed to class or need a study buddy before a big test, you'll always know someone around you. Having a familiar face around makes the transition to college so much easier and for those returning students its always great to see that long lost friend.

2. The professors actually know you

I never wanted to be in a class and be referred to as "girl in red sweater." All my professors know my name and if you aren't in class they actually notice and will email you asking if your okay. I'm more than a number in the class, I'm a student, a person.

3. Sporting events

At bigger universities you have to pay up to $30 dollars for a ticket and I don't know about you guys but I don't have that kind of money. At smaller schools you go for free at the game, just flash that student id and your in like a VIP.

4. Sleep in a little

Chances are that you don't have a huge campus which means it takes less time to get to class. It personally takes me 6 minutes to get to my classes from my dorm. That alarm on your phone, set it to 15 till and your good to go.

5. Brag Brag Brag

So someone ask,"where do you go?" and you tell them and they look at you all confused because they've never heard of it. This is your chance to brag about your cute little school and have the attention all on you for once.

6. Were all in this together

Maybe you din't have a lot of opportunities to be involved in a lot of things in high school, college has so many things. Say you wanna play a sport but not for the school, don't worry you can do intermeral sportsand be apart of Student Goverment while in school.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
