11 Songs About Leaving For College That'll Bring You To Tears

As college move in quickly approaches, saying goodbye to your family, your friends, and your hometown can be emotional. These twelve songs capture the feelings of leaving home and moving away perfectly, each tugging at a different part of your heart.

1. "I'll Always Remember You" - Miley Cyrus

"I wish you love I wish you luck, for you the world just opens up, but it's so hard to say goodbye."

To your friends, we know leaving each other will be hard, and the memories will last forever. Plus, who doesn't love a good Hannah Montana throwback.

2. Footprints- Molly Kate Kesner

"But if you're lost and feeling broken, Through and through, You can follow the footprints I left for you"

If you have a younger sibling, this song is for you! Leaving behind your siblings and hoping you've set a good example is the hope of any older sister, and this song captures just that!

3. Whenever You Remember- Carrie Underwood

"Whenever you remember, I'll be there, Remember how we reached that dream together"

With your friends, you've made plenty of memories, so Carrie definitely hits on looking back on those good times and smiling about all you've done.

4. Light On- Rebecca Ferguson

"Happiness and heartache, we share this all together. You are my forget-me-not, I hold on to you forever."

Through the good times and all of the bad, your family and your friends have stuck by your side, and always kept the "Light On" for you.

5. Because You Loved Me- Celine Dion

You're the one who held me up, never let me fall. You're the one who saw me through, through it all."

Your parents, your family. They've supported you through all of your successes and failures, and because of them, you are who you are and where you are today. Call your mom and say thanks.

6. Time of Our Lives- Tyrone Wells

"It's hard to walk away from the best of days, but if it has to end, I'm glad you have been my friend, in the time of our lives."

The memories made in high school have made them the best days of your life, but the adventure that awaits you brings new memories and new challenges to overcome.

7. See You Again- Wiz Khalifa ft Charlie Puth

"So let the light guide your way hold every memory as you go, and every road you take will always lead you home."

Even though this song is primarily about death, the lyrics of seeing someone again when you come home can be found in the feelings of leaving your family and friends, so that you can see them again and tell them all about your life, while still holding onto the memories that have led you to where you are today.

8. Love That Lets Go- Miley Cyrus

It's time to move on, and even though I'm not ready, I've got to be strong and trust where you're heading"

Miley is back making us cry again. Leaving home can be emotional, but the love from your family will follow you wherever you go in life. That time to let go can be the hardest, but will help you spread your wings and fly. Like it has been said many times before, "If you love something, let it go."

9. Don't Forget To Remember Me- Carrie Underwood

"Yeah, I still feel like I'm where I'm supposed to be, but don't forget to remember me."

Although they never will, a small part of you hopes your friends and family won't forget about you when you head off to college. Your friends will make new friends, but they'll always still be there for you in the end.

10. Class of 2017 Mashup- Anthem Lights

Even though this was released for the class of 2017, it's still one of the best mashups for graduating seniors! A mix between "I Hope You Dance," "My Wish," "The Climb," and "I Lived," exhibit every students feelings towards their friends and how they hope for nothing but the best for them in their lives, as well as how they've accomplished so much in their lives and aim to do the same in the future.

11. Unwritten- Natasha Bedingfield

"I'm just beginning, the pen's in my hand, ending unplanned."

Looking into your college years holds so much adventure and uncertainty. Your life is now again an open book and you are free to make your own story. Go out there and make your story great!

Whether it be sadness, excitement, or uncertainty, each of these songs holds a specific emotion about the transition to this new chapter of life. Leaving for college can be hard, but the experiences and memories you're about to make will impact your life forever and prepare you to make your change in the world. Now, if you're really ready, put away your tissues from these sad songs, and go out there and rock the world!

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
