The Ultimate BGSU Senior Undergrad Bucket List

Talons Up, Falcons!

It's happening, the time is here. It is officially my last semester at Bowling Green State University. I'm not quite sure how time flew by so fast, but here I am, a few months away from being a college graduate. This semester is definitely bitter-sweet, but it wouldn't be right if I didn't make a senior BGSU bucket list. Let's all try to hold back the tears and start checking off this list.

1. Drink a fishbowl at Nate & Wally's

The fish bowls at Nate & Wally's are their staple! I can honestly say as a senior undergrad, I have never tried one before. I know it's crazy, but don't worry I'll get it done.

2. Paint THE rock

You know the rock, the one that looks like paint has been thrown on it for years; because it has. Nothing like marking your territory other than making beautiful art or signing your name on the rock. You're only an undergrad at BGSU once!

3. Uptown Downtown Crab Race

Every Wednesday at 11 p.m. Downtown Sports Bar hosts their weekly crab races. Pick your crab, give it a name and watch them go. As weird as it sounds, it's a great time and definitely a must-do if you're graduating this upcoming Spring.

4. Run through the Founder's fountain

Who else has always wanted to do this? I can't be the only one!

5. Senior Bar Crawl

Grab your friends, laugh until you cry (or just cry) about graduation & make the night something you will (hopefully) never forget.

6. Attend Spring Stampede

Although it may be rough the next morning, this is an event you don't want to miss. Especially the cute shirts for each year!

7. Try Wood County's BEST steak in town at Trotter's Tavern

Trotter's Tavern is a secret to a lot of students on campus and by far the cutest restaurant in town. They have been titled best Steak in Wood County for several years now. Do yourself a favor and enjoy a Little Brown Jug steak dinner. Don't like steak? They have a Chicken Brown Jug as well. Yummy!

8. Ice skate at BGSU's ice rink

This is an awesome idea for a date or a fun afternoon with some friends. Even if you're a terrible ice skater like me, it will definitely bring a lot of laughs and great memories.

9. Enjoy Trigga Meals from Ziggy's

Buffalo chicken fries, anyone?

10. Go to a BGSU sporting event

Pick a sport, put on your BGSU gear & celebrate after a win!

11. TRY and eat BGSU's largest pizza in town

Pizza Pub 516, formally known as Myle's Pizza, has one of the largest pie's I've ever seen. The "Everything But The Kitchen Sink" pizza comes with double cheese, sausage, ground beef, pepperoni, ham. mushrooms, black olives, green pepper, and onions. See if you can get past the first slice.

12. Hang out with Freddie and Frieda

The two cutest falcons in town deserve some attention, too!

13. Finally purchase your BGSU Alumni Gear

Hopefully, your tears don't stain the new shirt.

Congratulations & cheers to BGSU's class of 2019.

20 Lessons You Learn When Living In A Dorm

I never know what to do when someone is in *my* shower stall.

As a child you grow up unable to wait for college. Unable to wait for the freedom. Living with your best friend sounds like a dream come true. But living in a 10x10 cinderblock room? Not so much. You don't truly know what it is like to live in a dorm until, well, you've actually lived in a dorm. Living in a dorm is a lot of fun, but it has its downsides:

1. Fear of someone taking “your shower"

2. The fight for a washer/dryer

3. Or when someone takes your wet clothes out of the washer and puts it on a table before you get to it

4. Locking your door because you never know when someone will randomly barge in

5. Its 2 a.m. and you're dying of thirst but your roommate didn't fill the Brita

6. You've become immune to the gross hallway smell

7. Cleaning services always clean the bathroom at the most inconvenient times

8. Having killer legs because the elevators are out of order every other day

9. Cinderblock is not soundproof, so you can hear everything your neighbors do

10. Learning to make the most of your small jail-cell of a room by adding pictures and string lights

11. When someone is in "your bathroom stall"

12. Forgetting you can't walk around barefoot because the floors are disgusting

13. Trying to be quiet when you're roommate is asleep (the worst)

14. Dining hall hours are AWFUL (and the food isn't great either)

15. Or when your roommate brings someone back to the room

16. Putting stuff in your fridge is like playing Tetris


17. Having an 8 a.m. class on Friday but the Thirsty Thursday crowd comes home wasted and screaming at 3 a.m.

18. When your package says it was delivered but housing didn't send the email saying you can go pick it up

19. You have no control over the heat so in the winter if you close the window it's too hot but if it's open you freeze

20. But despite it all, living in a dorm is a right of passage and a time you'll never forget and a place you'll never want to leave

I Can't Sing And Dance, But I Am SO Excited To Perform In Baylor Sing

Hopefully I don't actually break a leg!

If you should know anything about me, it's that I can't sing or dance to save my life. So when the opportunity to sing and dance in front of 2,000 people came my way, I was ready to say "heck to the no."

Baylor Sing is one of the most important and iconic traditions our university has to offer. For those of you don't know, Sing consists of organizations on Baylor's campus, such as fraternities and sororities, putting on seven-minute Broadway-style performances complete with singing, dancing, costumes, makeup, and lots of props.

When I first heard of Sing, I never thought I could do it myself.

Especially when I have not one dancing bone in my body. The Sing act itself is an intense 7-minute performance that I thought I would never be able to do. And when I was presented with the opportunity to join my organization's Sing act, I was ready to say no.

As a student with a 24/7 on-campus job, I thought I wouldn't be able to handle it.

But then I heard about all the amazing memories and friends people make while putting together their act for the entire Baylor community. They said you would meet people in your sorority that you would have never known or become best friends with before Sing. And then they told us about how rewarding it is to put on an act you have worked on for a long time and finally show it to an audience of more than 2,000 people. Even then, I was still nervous to commit to Sing.

But I did it anyway. And now I can't imagine my Baylor experience without it.

Sure, I almost twisted my ankle twice while dancing, lost my voice after a 3-hour rehearsal and complained to my parents over the phone about how Sing took a lot of time and energy from me, but it will be all worth it in a few short days.

I can only imagine what our first show night will be like, as the curtain draws open and the spotlights shine on our faces, ready to give a performance of a lifetime.
