Whether you're a new Seminole or an alumni, you've gotten to know your FSU ABC's pretty well.

Being a Florida State Seminole means a lot of things and it can differ for each student that strolls down Legacy Walk. There's one thing all Seminoles can relate to, however, and that's the ABC's of our school. You know them well, and if you haven't learned them yet, let's practice them together.

*Note: Some letters of the alphabet are missing.*


All You Can Drink is music to the ears of broke college students. And for $10 at the Strip on Saturdays and $7 at Bulls on Thursdays, how can you go wrong?


Any pre-game or tailgate may have you BYOB, or Bring Your Own Booze. This can be favorable if you know that you're tired of Skol Vodka or you've got a preference for IPA beers.

C. Collegetown.

Once you reach 21, you'll probably find yourself in Collegetown, bouncing between the Holy Trinity of bars- Madison Social, Township, and Centrale. But Collegetown is home to other great bars, like Tin Lizzy's and Coosh's, as well as some trendy stores and boutiques.

D. Dance Marathon.

It's For The Kids (FTK). Ask any sorority girl and she will happily explain to you how wonderful of an experience the Dance Marathon is. And if you ever get the chance to participate, just know that you're dancing your ass off for a great cause.

F. Friday Night Block Party.

Every Friday night before a football game at Doak, Madison Social hosts the Friday Night Block Party. Live music, food vendors, amazing drink specials, and an air of Seminole pride bring Collegetown to life.

G. Game Day.

Game day. Doesn't matter if it's football, basketball, baseball, softball, soccer- game day is a big deal. Wear your garnet and gold and cheer on the best damn sports teams in the state.

H. Hamilton.

Coach Hamilton, AKA Coach Ham. Our basketball coach is the GOAT and he's assisted the basketball into becoming #1 in the ACC... so what more can be said about Coach Ham?

K. Ms. Killings.

The sweetest woman you'll ever meet on campus. Ms. Killings will give you a big warm hug when you walk into Suwannee Dining Hall, or any time you see her on campus. She's an absolute angel.

L. Landis.

Landis Green is like FSU's Central Park. So many activities take place on Landis, including ice cream socials, LARPing, Quidditch- but that doesn't mean you can't string up a hammock and take a quick nap between classes.

M. Mandatory Make-out Monday.

No, you don't actually have to make-out with anyone, but if you find yourself with some free time on a Monday night, you'll hear people talking about MMM, which takes place at Clyde's and Costello's.

N. Norvell.

The new head football coach at FSU. Know the name and get ready for the new era to begin this fall.

O. Osceola.


Chief Osceola and his trusted steed, Renegade, are the iconic mascots for FSU. Watch them storm the field on game days and ignite the excitement that is an FSU game day.

P. Purgatory.

Thursday nights at Pots. That's all I need to say.

Q. Quidditch.

Yes, FSU has a Quidditch team, and yes, they are great. They practice and play on Landis and are always looking for new members to join their team.

R. Rez.

The Rez is a great place to spend your weekends. Complete with a lake for swimming, sailing, paddle-boarding, and a really impressive rope course, the Rez is great for hanging out with friends or taking the day to yourself.

S. Suwannee.

Ahh, Suwannee dining hall. Nothing beats an on-campus dining hall with some amazing food choices.

T. Tomahawk Chop.

You know it as the chop, which we do whenever the war chant comes on during game days.

W. Westcott.

Not only is it one of the best back drops for graduation pics, but it's the birthplace of one of the best traditions on campus. Westcott fountain is iconic, refreshing, and downright beautiful.

Y. Y-bombs.


Red Bull + Vodka = a real good time. Head to Yianni's at The Strip, home of the Y-bomb, and try one for yourself if you haven't experienced it yet.

Z. Ziegler.

Professor. Master Tweeter. The man who reads all 800 names at graduation. You'll get to know Prof. Ziegler real soon.

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves.

I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
