The Real Rivals on Campus

Inside the head of an MSU student as a pedestrian and as the one in the car.

The Real Rivals on Campus

We all know how it is when we are walking around campus absolutely freezing. However, we also know what it's like to be in the driver's seat at a crosswalk. Here are a few of the thoughts that may run through our heads as we waddle around our beautiful campus.

1. MOOOOOOVE bitch, get out the way

When you're driving and the pedestrians LITERALLY walk so slow and go when the light already turned green... don't give ME the dirty look.

2. Hit me, I dare you

You know when you're just so over life and you just kind of walk across the street without looking...we've all been there.


Usually pedestrians are just looking down and texting as they cross the street and actually don't even look up. Do you even know how slow you're walking? At least pay attention.

4. Pay my tuition

The temptation to get slightly hit by a CATA bus or a car so they can pay for your college...not the worst idea I've heard.

5. Where the hell did you come from???

Bikes just FLY out of no where. Especially that intersection by the Spartan Statue-it'll finally be your time to turn and BOOM five bikers just skrt skrt in front of you with no remorse.

6. Oh my god I can't believe I just did that

When you slip on ice right in the middle of the BUSIEST intersection of campus and pray that nobody saw you eat shit...

7. HAHA did you see that guy fall?

When you're the car right next to the person that fell and you can't help but lose your shit. Unless you try to be a nice person like me and feel really bad and look down to pretend you didn't see because you were the one that fell yesterday.

8. RUN!

When you and your friends are going out and you're wearing tank tops and run as fast as you can in front of cars because you're actually dying inside.

9. Dude, aren't they freezing?

Those nights that you decide to stay in and go get McDonald's instead of going out, and on your way you see 8 drunk girls running around in crop tops and skirts, you just wonder...

We've all been in either position, so this may be the most hypocritical war that goes on around campus. You can quite literally take on both personas multiple times in one day, but I think we can all agree this is the real rivalry of university culture.

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.

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.
