7 Reasons Snow Days In College Are So Much Better Than In High School

No one appreciates a snow day more than a college student.

7 Reasons Snow Days In College Are So Much Better Than In High School

Yes, I am a junior in college and yes I still wish for snow days. There is something so exciting about knowing that all of your responsibilities are put on hold, even if it is just for a short 24 hours.

1. That test is postponed for ANOTHER week


You can sleep soundly knowing you just bought so more time to prepare.

2. All of your friends are within walking distance (or may even live with you)


There's no better time for a sleepover.

3. You probably won't have to make up the days


Odds are professors will postpone the class' plans to the next time you have class. Thankfully at GW, we don't need to worry about the "180 days of school" requirement.

4. You can stay up late doing work OR relaxing


Turn off all of your alarms and do what you please!

5. Sometimes you really needed a self care day, but couldn't fit in your schedule otherwise


It is so important to spend time on yourself. In order to present the best version of you, you need to take time to reflect and treat yourself to the things that make you happy.

6. You can catch up on the sleep you definitely don't have


Sleep is a requirement— not a luxury.

7. You don't have to go outside and help your parents shovel or clean the car off


We all have to admit, shoveling is not the move and will never be.

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.
