The Top 5 Reasons Tinder Is Popular On College Campuses

Tinder, the app that promises "friendships, dates, relationships, and everything in between." But, is that the real reason college students download this app? Well, maybe.

Here are the top FIVE reasons why Tinder is so popular on college campuses.

1. Tinder is pure entertainment.

For when you're sitting bored in a lecture, laying in bed before you fall asleep, or avoiding your homework after class, it's so easy to pull out your phone and have the ability to go through hundreds of people, deciding to swipe left or swipe right.

2. You get the ability to scope out the hotties in your area.

Especially the ones that go to school with you, right from your phone! You get the chance to see who is out there that you could go meet up with at a party, or just meet up for some subs at Jimmy John's.

3. Tinder is probably the fastest way to find someone you're attracted to to hook up with.

Whether people admit it or not, a lot of the people on Tinder are looking for someone to just meet and hook up with, nothing more. Especially being college kids, most are not looking for a deep relationship, just some fun. Tinder is an easy way to do this.

4. Tinder is a good way to meet people for parties.

Yep, you read that right. People use it to find parties to attend on the weekends. You can match with people at your school, and send them a quick message asking if they know of any parties going on that weekend. Now, this isn't the most common use of Tinder, but it is on the charts!

5. Lastly, Tinder is common for college kids because it's an easy way to meet people.

You swipe right, you get a match, and you start talking to someone you think is attractive and vice-versa! You talk, and eventually, you get to that point where you want to meet in person! Now, this could turn into something more than just a friendship, or it could stay a friendship, and there is nothing wrong with that! Just having friends outside of your circle of friends is important, and Tinder can help you do that!

If any of these options sound appealing to you, Tinder is not a weird app to have! So many people have it for at least one of the reasons above, so don't be hesitant to get it. And remember, swipe left means no, swipe right means yes. Good luck!

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
