8 Events To Try At UD This Weekend

College is the most amazing time of your life, but sometimes it can become a drag. Having the same routine day in and day out. UD offers different opportunities for students to experience each weekend on campus. Here are a few you should check out:

1. Perkins Live

Each Friday Night the student center puts on different events for students to go to. It usually involves free food and prizes.

2. Trabant Now 

This event takes place on Saturday night and is similar to Perkins Live. However, different organizations from campus usually sponsor this event. It can be anything from a spa sorority night to a small concert.

3. SCPAB Movies 

These movies happen each weekend in Trabant Theater. It's fun to bring friends along to see some of the latest movies that have just left the box office. It's a cheap way to spend a Friday night.

4. Sporting Events 

Football is in season, and there's no better way to show your school spirit than by going out to a sporting event. If you're not into football, there's usually free giveaways for the first thousand students that show up.

5. Dorm Events 

Residence Life and Housing like to try and bring their students together. If your dorm is having an event, go! It's a great way to meet new people or just have fun with your already made friends.

6. Club Trips 

Most clubs usually take their trips on the weekends. If you're super passionate about something, join the club! More often than not you'll get to go out and actually experience what you love first hand, and it gets you off campus for a few hours.

7. UDairy 

It's just a short bus ride away for a yummy treat. If your Saturday afternoon is dragging and you need to stop studying for that exam take a trip to South Campus. What makes it all the better is that they except Flex, so no money out of your own pocket!

8. Main Street 

Tired of the dining hall food? The beauty of UD is having Main Street right at your disposal. There's dozens of restaurants and many very affordable for a student's budget.

The University Of Delaware truly tries to make every single student have a special college experience. So, if you're a student, or just passing through, take some time to enjoy what it has to offer.

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.
