No matter where you live or where you attend school, the language of roommates is universal. Whether you found your future bridesmaid or your worst enemy, getting used to living with a complete stranger (or 3 strangers in my case) can get weird sometimes. Although we complain about them on the daily, our college experience just wouldn’t be the same without them.

From the roommates you never see to the ones you see too much, they all test our patience equally but we still manage to love them (at least most the time).

1. The one who actually doesn't live there

2. The one who lives there but is never home

3. The one who takes all your snacks

4. The one who you do everything with

5. The one who leaves their dishes in the sink

6. The one who pulls pranks with you

7. The one who acts like a mom

8. The one who always has a little too much

9. The one who always studies

10. The one who always sleeps

11. The one who leaves her hair in the sink

12. The one who never goes to class

13. The one who is passive aggressive

14. The one who is just plain weird

15. The one with the emotional support dog

16. The one obsessed with cats

17. The one who is a frat/sorority star

18. The one who is always too happy

19. The one who is always complaining

20. The one who is an overachiever

21. The hot one

22. The one who is too loud

23. The judgmental one

24. The one who always goes home

25. The one who is your friend soulmate

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present.
