St. Oney's: The Official Survival Guide

***Disclaimer: SUNY Oneonta does NOT promote binge-drinking and/or underage drinking.

What is St. Oney’s Day?

Created in 2012, when their spring break was going to overlap with St. Patrick’s Day, St. Oney’s day was created for college students to celebrate the Irish holiday. Overall, it’s a simple day-drinking and bar-hopping holiday. This year’s St. Oney’s Day is on Saturday, March 18th.

What should you expect?

1. Drinking

Especially day-drinking and bar- and/or party-hopping.

2. Green

People are trying to “get their Irish on.” They even sell shirts at Red Dragon Outfitters (which is located at Hunt College Union on campus).

What will you need?

1. Water

And lots of it. When you drink, you become dehydrated, which is what causes that hangover in the morning. So when you drink make sure to balance it out with plenty of water.

2. Sleep

Make sure you get a good night’s sleep the night before. It’s going to be a long day, whether or not you plan to drink.

3. A healthy breakfast

Make sure you have food in your system, and the healthier the breakfast the more energy you will have to get through the long day ahead of you.

4. Your outfit planned in advance

March is that awkward month where it’s 60-degrees and sunny one day then -2-degrees and snowy the next, so make sure to keep an eye on the weather to help you with your outfit (and possible back-ups for any surprise weather changes). Be sure to include green in it!

5. Your friends

Make sure you have a solid group of friends that you will stick with the entire time. You want to make sure that you are safe and that your friends are safe. Don’t travel along, especially at night.

6. Pictures

Make sure BEFORE you go out to take pictures of you and your friends. Your hair doesn’t look like a rat’s nest and your makeup isn’t half wiped off yet.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
