12 Ways You Know It Is Springtime In Cuse

12 Ways You Know It Is Springtime In Cuse

Because the sun doesn't shine much, but when it does, you know.


Springtime in Cuse is a HUGE deal. Cuse students have to pack a year's worth of fun outside activities into about two weeks at the end of the semester. The whole vibe of the campus changes. Here are some things you'll notice at Cuse when springtime rolls around.

1. The Hall of Languages lawn has students laying out all over it.

What better way to enjoy the nice weather than to sit out in the lawn of HOL and do your work outside? Studying outside is a big mood. The people looking from the Panasci windows are def jealous.

2. Frat boys are in their front yard tossing around a football, playing pong, and blasting music.

Any time the weather gets slightly nice, Comstock is BUMPIN. Frat boys never miss out on the nice weather and always take full advantage of the time to be out on the lawn.

3. Sherpa jacket spottings are on the low, and they are worn, they've casually worn off the shoulder.

The classic winter Cuse jacket, the sherpa, is a staple of college girl life. You know it is getting warmer when you don't see them everywhere 24/7.

4. Jean jackets, however, are on the high.

Sherpas need to be replaced by something, right? It isn't warm enough outside yet to go jacket free, so you can peep Cuseies sporting their denim jackets.

5. Everyone is out on their porch, living their best life.

From sorority houses to off campus housing near campus, everyone takes advantage of the, like, 6 days a year where they can actually use their porches.

6. There's always frisbee going down on the quad.

Just pop in on a game or start your own. Enjoy the weather and have some fun on the quad. How ~college~, am I right?

7. There's also probably some dogs on the quad too.

People tend to bring their dogs out more when it isn't brick, which is GREAT. I feel like there's always some random dog to be pet on the quad. (Bonus points if you play frisbee with the dog.)

8. A lot of people are flexin' in their Birks.

Suns out, toes out. After many months of snow boots, Cuse students jump at the first opportunity to bust out the Birkenstocks.

9. At least one hammock is up between some trees next to the promenade.

Someone always sets up a hammock in those trees and can be seen lounging, napping, studying, or doing homework. Honestly, it is a MOOD. If you're that person, you're my inspiration.

10. All the cars have their windows down.

Every car driving by has its windows down, playing some good jams, yelling hello to people on the street, spreading the positivity. Keep it up, my people.

11. Block Party and Mayfest are coming up.

And everyone is LIT. The day of Mayfest is arguably the best day of the year in Cuse, and hardly anyone can contain their excitement. It just adds to the overall good aura of the campus.

12. Vibes are just good.

People are coming out of their winter depression. There are more smiles and laughs. More people are outside so everyone is always saying hello to each other. Vibes are just good man.

10 Tips To Prepare For Your Freshman Year Of College

Tips and tricks for college freshman year.


Obviously, I am not an expert on college life yet, being that I am only a high school senior. Barely hanging on these last couple weeks of school. I have been preparing for my freshman year of college since the start of my senior year. It is an overwhelming, stressful process and it takes a lot of preparation and time to get it all done. I wanted to give some tips and advice on how I started my process and how I have gotten through it. Starting a new chapter can be really scary, especially if you have no idea what you are doing, I am the oldest sibling in my family, and I am the first to go through this crazy process called college. Though I was uncertain exactly what I needed to do and how to do it, I figured it out and here's how I did it.

1. Have a planner

This is going to be your best friend. It helps you keep your life organized (or at least it makes you feel like you do) and assures you that you meet deadlines. Since I can remember I have always used a planner and it helps me so much. I wouldn't know what to do without it. I have all the dates for when things need to be turned in- like housing and such, and also I have up to when classes start next fall. A planner is so helpful and would recommend getting one if you don't have one already.

2. Talk to friends about their experience

This has honestly been one of the top life savors. I have gotten so much advice from my friends that are in college and they give me the inside scoop and what to do and what not to do.

3. Do your research

Research the school, research clubs and activities that you may be interested in. Get familiar with what is on and off campus.

4. Visit the campus

I am lucky enough that I am only an hour and a half away from campus and it doesn't take long to get there so I just go when I feel like it. But visiting and being on campus several times defiantly has made me feel more comfortable and more at ease than I would be if I had not visited at all.

5. Embrace times with friends and family

This is the last summer with you In your house as a full time member. Embrace it! Be with your friends and family as much as you can. You are going to miss them just as much as you are going to miss them.

6. Start doing things on your own

I am already pretty independent but I struggled like starting to make my own dinners because I have been fortunate enough where my parent always took care of dinner. But now they are making me responsible for making my own dinner. Which was a really tough life altering thing for me. It may not seem like it but it was for me. But start doing your own laundry. making your own dinner, getting things yourself etc.

7. Make list

This and my planner have been my saving grace. If I didn't have it there was going to be no progress on the thing called college.

8. Manage your time

This is pretty self explanatory, there is a lot to do during the college process. Be sure not to procrastinate and know when things are due so you can get everything on time.

9. Take summer classes if needed

If you know you are going to be behind in a class, take some summer classes. For example, I am a little behind in math, and I have to take all the way up to college algebra in order to graduate college. Well, I knew I didn't want to take math all four years of college and I knew I was behind. So I am taking some summer courses to not only finish with math earlier but just to be ahead of the game.

10.  Gather everything you need for college!

Make sure you have everything you need for the big day. Set apart some days before move in day to take time and pack whatever you may need so you don't forget anything.
