7 Syracuse Students Reflect On Their Weekends

7 Syracuse Students Reflect On Their Weekends

Easily the best way to break up week.


With the school year slowing down, I always think about how much I will miss the weekends here. They make weekends at home look less than entertaining and is something that I will look forward to coming back to in the summer.

1. Sage O

"What I like most about the weekends is hanging out with my friends (whether it's watching movies, dinner, or just talking) it's my favorite thing to do. I like it the most because I don't have to worry about school nights or doing my homework right away. It's just time to chill with my girls"

2. Karen C

"Weekends at Syracuse are incredibly exciting. When you're out, you get to see so many people that you cannot see during the week. I like to consider myself to be a "work hard, play hard" kinda girl so for the weekends I devote this time to myself to have fun and let loose, while during the week I work hard. The weekend is my reward so I always look forward to it"

3. Kathryn W

"It's a time to de-stress and spend time with your friends. As well and get away from campus. There are so many options from going to the mall and seeing a movie or having a nice dinner at armory square"

4. Kristen B

"During the week I'm always going and going and my room and everything gets so messy and I'm always so stressed but on the weekends I can clean, get organized, not think about school, and have fun with friends:)"

5. Harrison T

"Welcome to Friday. In preparation for takeoff, please ensure all negative attitudes are properly stowed. On behalf of your captain, Jack Daniels and myself, welcome aboard. I expect sunshine and good attitudes today for our trip. Enjoy the ride."

6. Anna P

"My weekends always start at 12:35 p.m. on Friday. I walk back to my dorm and meet up with my roommate so we can go get some food. Usually walking back from class I call my mom and just catch up with her on what going on in both my and her life.

Then I usually just sit and chill. I clean up my room and watch some Netflix, which is something that I never have time to go during the week. At night I typically now go out with my sorority sisters! We go to our party's and always have the most fun ever!!!

Saturday morning I always meet up with 3 of my really good friends and we go to Starbucks and just hang out there for a little, talk and drink some coffee. Saturday during the day I either start my homework for the weekend or I run any errands that I could possibly need to do.

Then Saturday night is kind of a repeat of Friday night, go out with my sisters have the time of our lives!!! And finally, Sunday hits and I genuinely do homework all day and stop for some food breaks."

7. Jake R

"A typical weekend here at Syracuse for me always starts on Thursday night. The reasoning is that I haven't had a Friday class here at Syracuse since first semester freshman year. Thursday after class, I will sometimes go get food with friends or to make food at my apartment.

Thursday night I'll watch sports games on TV before going to the bar or a party. When I'm out I enjoy dancing and hanging out with my friends and girlfriend. On rare occasion here at Syracuse, the sun decides to come out, which makes for a great day for golf at drummers.

Out on the course we may or may not purchase a golf cart in order to relax. I usually try to make friendly bets with my friends throughout the match. Once we finish up the round we usually all go home and take our respective showers, only to meet up an hour later and go out that night.

Saturdays are basically the same thing as Fridays, with the late wakeup time and relaxation. Usually I'll hang out at my apartment watching TV until mid-afternoon and then start to get my work done that is due that week"

13 Movies Every Couple Needs To Watch Before They Get Married

Let's be honest, Rachel McAdams is in all the best love stories.


These 13 movies are the foundation of any long-lasting relationship, and I'm not joking. Each movie will show you something new about your partner, and make you ask each other the hard questions. How many kids do you want and how are you going to raise them? What would happen if you got into a horrible accident? Some are less serious though, like what if you could time travel?

I promise that not every one of these movies is a Nicholas Sparks classic, and I also promise that not every movie has Rachel McAdams in it!

1. "The Time Traveler's Wife"

This movie is both heartbreaking and amazing.

2. "About Time"

Let's be honest, Rachel McAdams is in all the best love stories. It's on Netflix right now, so grab some snacks and turn it on!

3. "Like Crazy"

This infamous Tumblr gif came from "Like Crazy." It's about a couple who goes long distance and build their life together. I used to cry every time I watched it, and I'm no crier! It also has the (now famous) Felicity Jones in it.

4. "The Notebook"

Every girl wants this kind of love.

5. "The Last Song"

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are literally married now so if that isn't good luck, I don't know what is.

6. "Safe Haven"

You guessed it! This is another Nicholas Sparks classic. This movie has a dark twist as well, which men will love.

7. "Inside Out"

You may be thinking that this one is a bit weird. Well, this movie will help both you and your partner understand each other's emotions better.

8. "The Choice"

This movie is great because the female lead is feisty and extremely intelligent, which usually doesn't happen in love stories. How do you keep the love alive with a woman who is hard to get, and even harder to keep entertained?

9. "The Longest Ride"

Originally I could not stand the main female lead (Britt Robertson) but now she is in one of my favorite shows (For The People), so I have no choice. This movie had me on the end of my seat, and as a rom-com it is a must.

10. "The Age Of Adaline"

I began loving the name 'Adaline' thanks to this movie. This unlikely love story and self love journey really gets me.

11. "The Vow"

Imagine falling in love with someone and building a life, but an accident forces you to start all over?

12. "Titanic"

If they don't have any sort of reaction to this movie, they are probably not the one for you.

13. "Yours, Mine, & Ours"

Yours, Mine, & Ours is a true classic. Are you Helen or Frank Beardsley? You should figure that out before you tie the knot!

You're welcome!
