The Students for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (SETA) hosted "Veganize Your Dorm," where they gave away vegan and cruelty-free skincare samples. on Thursday, Oct. 3.

Members of the Student for the Ethical Treatment of Animals answered questions from students about living a vegan lifestyle on campus, while handing out vegan skincare products such as moisturizers and cleaners.

"[Companies] are most of the time very excited to help us out or send us some products," sophomore kinesiology major and president of SETA Maya Greenbaum said.

SETA is part of the Humane League's Student Alliance for Animals, which partners with student activist organizations across the country to raise awareness and end the abuse of animals. Although they have similar names, SETA is unaffiliated with PETA. Greenbaum said the name was chosen because they believe in the message that PETA puts forth, and also as a play on words.

In addition to giving away vegan products, SETA also hosts events to promote veganism as a lifestyle as well as to bring awareness to animal cruelty.

"We'll have some Cubes of Truth, which is showing slaughterhouse footage to people," Greenbaum said. According to Greenbaum, they also organize demonstrations.

SETA hosts vegan potlucks as a way of engaging students. According to sophomore math major and treasurer Justin Slud, potlucks are a "great" way to engage the vegan community on campus.

"At the First Look Fair, there's a lot of people that put their name down because their vegan or interested," Slud said, "So we had a potluck last week to meet some of those people and get to kind of have that community."

"We are hoping to bring [students in] and form more of a tight knit community," Greenbaum said.

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.

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.

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.
