10 Reasons Ultimate Frisbee Is The Most Underrated College Sport
Angela Provenzano

Joining a club frisbee team was one of the best decisions of my college career.

You don't have to have a background in frisbee to play frisbee

Since it is an up and coming sport, most people on college teams haven't picked up a frisbee or competitively played before college. Coming from a gymnastics and cheer background, it was a huge learning curve for me, but a fun skill to learn never the less.

The Spirit of the game is a real thing

The Spirit of the Game generally means that frisbee is self-referred and built on honesty between players for a fair and fun game. But frisbee players also have the best spirit, with chants and sideline support. Win or lose, you are still a team.

Frisbee Players have the COOLEST sock combinations

To join a frisbee team it is required that you buy a pair of cool socks. But really who doesn't like showing a little personality when you can? Your socks really say a lot about you as a person.

Dog lovers, this is the place for you.

I would argue that we are the most dog-friendly sport. You're guaranteed to see at any tournament and encouraged to go and pet it, even if you are called on the line up. #priorities

It's a cheap way to travel

With generally low dues and support from club sports, I get to travel all over the south on a bi-weekly basis for about $30. Now that's the deal of a life time.

Ultimate couples...and weddings... are definitely a thing!

Need a boyfriend? Join a frisbee team! But in all seriousness it's fun to get to know a group of guys that play the same sport. You aren't just getting to know one team, but a bunch of people you can talk frisbee lingo with.

The sideline chants are like nothing you've ever seen or heard before.

One example: "Give me an M, I, S, S, I, S, S, I, S, S, I, S, S, I, S, S, I , P, P I... What does that spell? Mississississississippi!

You're encouraged to get down and dirty

This is what we like to call a classic layout. You will feel like the bossiest boss lady doing it.

Practices are normally a therapeutic study break to vent about life while you play some wholesome frisbee.

I always look forward to see all my pals 8-10pm on Tuesday and Thursday. I'll tell them all my week's gossip and listen to theirs as we warm up and throw the disc.

Your team will become family

It's safe to say most of my best friends have come from frisbee. Being a transfer student, I was looking for a tight knit community to join... and i got far more than that!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
