The world is a crazy place we live in, and now that the internet has lost its mind about ex Disney Channel Star Zac Effron playing as infamous serial killer Ted Bundy, here are some people I believe could have easily played as him in the up and coming movie.

At Troy University, there are three groups present on campus: those that are Greek, those that are a part of the Student Government Association, and those that are don't affiliate with either.
During my search for a college to attend, one of my stipulations was that I didn't want Greek life to be the only dominant force on campus (along with things such as cost, location, majors offered etcetera). Troy University boasts a Greek population of only 20% and this number intrigued me because, at many schools, it seems to be a higher percentage of students. However, after attending Troy University for a little over a semester now, I doubt this number because every time I turn around, another student is telling me about what sorority they are a member of, or about what fraternity they are a member of on campus.
And, admittedly, prior to the first SGA election, I was pretty clueless as to what SGA was because SGA was not a big deal at my high school. To be more truthful, I didn't understand the full extent of SGA until now while the SGA presidential race is happening.
Greek life isn't bad and those that are a part of Greek life aren't bad. The SGA isn't bad and those that are a member of the SGA aren't bad. It just feels like Greek life and SGA goes hand-in-hand for those that are independent and makes being involved on campus that much harder.
Those who ran for SGA will promote the fact they are a part of a sorority or fraternity, and thus, represent the student body; however, if only 20% of Troy's campus is Greek, how is this true? Something like this is what I mean. There's a lack of awareness that there is more to this campus than SGA and Greek life.
There just needs to be more attention brought to the lack of awareness of those who aren't Greek nor SGA.
For example, during Homecoming, independent organizations participated with the frats and sororities in events such as chalk the quad and making banners. Not one independent organization was promoted for chalk the quad, and I know, as a member of an independent organization, we had to ask to be recognized for winning a place for our banner. I am grateful that we were at least recognized but it shouldn't feel like fighting a war to be recognized alongside Greek organizations for completing the same activities.
This is an open plea to the new SGA President -- bring students together, all students because that is what will make Troy University a stronger college.
I've lived in the same town my entire life. I graduated from a high school I went to since second grade. I've grown up with the same friends that I have now, even though I've lost some along the way.
All of that is about to change. I'm moving within the next month over two hours away from where I grew up and away from my family. For some this may be scary, but I can not tell you how excited I am. I see this as a blessing and a beautiful opportunity to get to know myself outside of the walls I grew up in.
I can not say that I'm not terrified. Understandably, moving to a new place into an apartment can be very scary for someone who has never experienced something like this before. I'm stressing about things that I have never had to worry about before.
I'm worrying about furniture, money, and what rug would match the decor better. Seems a bit silly, but this is all new to me. I need everyone to have a little patience with me or with anyone going through a major life change like this.
Putting all the stress aside I know this is a big change that could benefit me greatly. I can not wait to make memories in a new place outside of the walls I've built around my hometown.
