10 Things I Cannot WAIT To Do At Villanova

Go cats!

Yes, summer's ending, and while, for those still living at home, that only means one thing- SCHOOL. However, for college students returning back to campus, all they can think about is going home for the school year. As a Villanova student, here's what I can't wait for:

1. Tailgating.

Although you feel insanely dead at the end of the day, tailgates for sports (mainly basketball- GO CATS) are one of the most entertaining days of any sports season!

2. Consuming your weight in coffee at Holy Grounds.

Holy Grounds is the chain coffee shop all around Villanova. As well as having really good drinks and muffins, they also have amazing puns for all of their food and drinks!

3. Walking past the Church.

Whether you're religious or not, the church is by far the most beautiful structure on campus, and Villanova is famous for it. People wait years to get married there!

4. Eating at Connelly and Cafe Nova.

The dining halls aren't the worst, but they're not the best. Everyone's mouth is savoring for Conn grilled cheese/chicken fingers, no matter how unhealthy it is!

5. Hanging out at the Oreo.

During the spring semester, everyone knew when summer was coming when people started crawling out of their dorms to hang out on the quad and laying on the Oreo. One of the best feelings I've had all year was baking in the sun after class without a care in the world- I even forgot about finals!

6. Going to Philadelphia.

My friends and I went into Philadelphia at 3:00 AM twice during the school year, and let me tell you, they were some of the best nights of my life. However, going into Philly during the daytime is still pretty awesome, too. There's tons of stores to shop, museums to learn, and parks to walk around.

7. Having classes with my friends.

Having classes with your friends makes it go so much faster. My friends and I had Spanish together first semester and we all became so incredibly close because of it.

8. Attending club meetings.

Since your time is your own, you get to choose how many clubs you join and how often you go. I joined a lot of social justice clubs over the year and I love seeing all my activist friends when they attend!

9. Celebrating basketball season.

Obviously, going to Villanova, basketball is a BIG deal. Basketball season is our university's own extended Christmas!

10. Seeing my friends.

Living in Florida, I have not seen my friends all summer. Some of them live as far away as California! I cannot wait to squeeze each and every one of my friends when we get back.

There is not a consistent standard for health education in the United States. There are a lot of variables that go into this — what state a student lives in, whether they go to a public or private school, and the district's funding and priorities. These variables can be argued for any subject, not just health class. But as we continue to grow as a society, hopefully bettering our education system along the way, it's crucial to consider this often-forgotten element of a child's schooling.

In March, the whole country shut down. School was online, extra-curriculars were canceled, and I found myself laying in bed all day every day. One day, as I was laying in bed contemplating my laziness, I decided that I wanted to do something to make myself more healthy. I was feeling so down on myself and my laziness so I decided to make a change.

Staying Active While You're Stuck Inside IS Possible, It Just Takes Some Small Steps

I know the last thing you want to think about right now is exercising, but it's time to put down the controller and put on your workout clothes.


As someone who has also been living on a bed since March, I can guarantee you that working out has been the last thing on my priority list. It's pretty far down there, along with my motivation and brain cells I used to use for work. However, I have made an effort in the past couple of weeks to move up exercising to at least number three on my priorities list.

I Got Clean At A Very Young Age, And It Honestly Saved My Life

At 18, the world looked so much different for me than it did for most other 18-year-olds that I knew.

Going into rehab when I was 19 was hands down the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my life. My addiction started when I was around 17 and spiraled and spiraled out of control, as addictions always do. However, looking back, I'm so lucky my addiction started and ended when it did.

7 Things Your Partner Can Do To Support You When You Have PCOS

Don't be afraid to ask for help or comfort if you need it.


Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) may not be totally visible to the eye, which makes it a lot harder for your partner to understand what's going on with your body.

If you are in a relationship, it's important that you communicate your PCOS symptoms with your partner. I say "your" symptoms specifically because everyone's symptoms are different.

One Indictment, Three Charges, And No Justice For Breonna Taylor

We can't settle for this decision or a system that is fundamentally broken and unequal.


On March 13, 26-year-old Breonna Taylor was fatally shot in her apartment by police who were executing a "no-knock" warrant. Since then, there have been rallying efforts both in the streets and on social media demanding justice for Taylor and keeping her name known.
