If You Take Your College Squad On Tour

Squad trips are essential to surviving summer break.

Jill Frye

College is a life-changing chapter in our lives, and one of the best parts is finding a close group of people to share it with. When you're at school, you do literally everything together — study, go to class, eat, nap, adventure, and so much more. Because of this, it's a huge adjustment when everyone parts ways for either the summer or after graduating, so this obviously calls for road trips to see each other. When we were kids, there was a book we loved called "If You Give A Mouse A Cookie," and I realized that, in a weird way, it connected to us because if you give a college student a squad, a chain of adventures are bound to follow just like with the mouse and his cookie. So, I present to you, "If You Take A Squad On Tour."

If you take a squad on tour, then they'll probably want to find a fun place to go. This requires travel, and travel always requires two things — taking photos of landmarks with their Snapchat filters to document the journey, and having jam sessions in the car.

Once the entire squad arrives, they'll want to go on an adventure, so you go to the zoo. There's a lot for you to see, so you take lots of photos to remember the time you fulfilled your lifelong dream.

If the squad walks around for a bit, they might also find sunflowers that are taller than they are!

When you go to the zoo, you also get to directly watch the animals underwater as they swim around in their tanks. This means there might be a place to sit inside where it's nice and cool, and this is a great opportunity for another squad photo.

After an afternoon at the zoo, the squad will probably want some snacks, so they leave to get ice cream! The day has worn them out, so it's probably a good idea to take a squad nap before dinner.

If you give a squad a nap, they'll regain some energy, so it's time for more fun. The squad will play games and watch movies, and they also spend time with pets.

If a squad is ready for bed, then they'll definitely want hugs goodnight. They'll part ways for the evening, but they'll be ready for more adventures in the morning. If a squad is ready for more adventures, then they'll probably go on a donut run before their morning hike. Hikes, however, require energy, so the squad lays on the floor for a while, yet again, before leaving.

For breakfast, the squad sits in the same seats they did at dinner the night before. If someone sits in a different seat, then the seating order will be messed up. When a squad goes on a hike, sometimes they find fun trees to climb on. They might also do parkour on handrails they find.

As the day begins to fly by, the squad will eventually have to part ways for the rest of the summer. If the friends are going to travel home, then they're going to want some snacks first.

The car rides home will probably include more jam sessions, so the squad members will have their Spotify playlists ready to go. The squad had an incredible weekend, and they're all happy they got to see each other.

If a squad parts ways, then they will probably, well, more like definitely, be sad, but they know it's not goodbye — it's only a see you later. So, how do you fix this? I guess you'll have to take a squad on tour.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.
