Spring Fever
Start writing a post

There is so much talk about spring finally arriving, but what are we all actually excited for? I went around on campus asking people what they are most excited for this spring, and here are some of their responses:
“I’m most excited to finally get to ride my bike again!”-Sophomore
“I finally get to wear my maxi skirts and short shorts!”- Junior
“Finally get to run outside with no shirt on.”-Freshman
“I won’t have to take a cab to the bars anymore! It will be warm enough to walk there!”- Senior
“I can go rollerblading without falling on my face!”-Sophomore
“Running around Calhoun!”- Senior
“Tanning next to trash cans…”- Sophomore
“I’m excited to be able to enjoy my walk to class and not freeze my butt off!”- Sophomore
“No more runny noses!”-Freshman
“Girls in tight shirts and short shorts….”-Sophomore

For the most part, people are just excited for the warm weather with no snow.  I truly believe that campus becomes more alive and everyone is actually happier in the spring.  
This is obvious when you take a walk through the mall. In the winter, obviously no one sits out in the courtyard.  Everyone has their hoods up and face down.  No one talks, and everyone just books it to class.  In the spring, people literally take naps on the lawn.  People have study dates and lunch outside.  Everyone smiles at each other, and they take their sweet old time getting to class.  People actually want to walk to class, because the outside weather is just as warm as their covers on their beds.  

Spring is hopefully just around the corner.  It’s almost time to get out your spring wardrobe and put away your winter boots.  The snow will soon start to melt and everyone will start to feel happy and giddy.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
